For the backpacker that enjoys the simplicity and solitude that comes with solo travel, the Mid 1 three-season pyramid tent fits the vibe. Constructed with our trusted and favorite blends of ultralight, durable, and 100% waterproof made-in-the-USA Dyneema© Composite Fabrics, this single-wall, fully enclosed, single pole retreat builds off what we already know so well from the decade we, and countless kindred explorers, have experienced with the legendary UltaMid 2 and 4. Scaled down to accommodate one person with plenty of room to spare, with a weight of less than 16.8 oz, the Mid 1 is quick and efficient to set up, quiet and stable in wind and rain, and easy to live and recharge in. So head out and claim your little corner of this big ol’ wonderful world wherever you land each night. The MID 1 is an ideal companion for those that go it alone.

Almost a Perfect Tent

Pros: Lightweight. Great weather protecting. Huge vestibule. Ample interior space for a wide pad and spreading out gears.

Cons: Price. Large package size. Semi-transparent fly fabric.

Suggestion: The L shape interior zipper make it's very hard to utilize the far-side of the vestibule and make the tent directional. A "⊥" or large rainbow shape zipper will solve both issues.

Tall backpacker

I like the weight and packability, how easy it sets up, and how sturdy it is. I was able to set it up on a tent platform without using the vestibule to conserve space. I did experience significant condensation inside the tent on one cold night but am still tweaking my setup to find ways to manage. I am very tall, 6'7", and although I do touch the tent at my feet, I fit as well as I do in my Tarptent DW.
