Appy Trails  THE Backpacking tent

Backpacking Tent 1 lb. 11.6 oz. 6’ tall 5 man (Yes!)

That’s right!  These are serious tents at as light a weight as we could make them.  Solid 185T polyester!  PU1000 coated.

Backpacking Tents.  Light!  Great for short trips, too.

Product Description

Single-wall design boasts low weight, while its single center pole architecture creates a stable and tight structure.

As a backpacking style tent, full vestibule space is built in.

The fabric is ideal for single-wall tents, not water repellent but water proof coated polyester, 185T with 1000 pu coating.

Only one tent pole, light and compact, and also lessening the need to carry that weight by having the options of mounting using cord or a pole found at site or a hiking pole with extender.  A small rear line tensioner is also furnished, but a stick can be found on site.

Tensioned fabric makes the tent quiet in heavy winds

Doors use a zipper, light weight and allowing outside viewing and quick exit.

Doors can stay open in the rain without saturating the tent.

Stuffsack slightly over-sized for ease of stuffing. Compression instructions included.
