THE PERFECT END TO ADVENTUROUS DAYS

When it comes to portable shelter, few designs have been as thoroughly time-tested and proven as those built in the pyramid-style. They’re easy to set up, efficiently spacious, and because of things like physics, incredibly capable of providing sanctuary in all but the most extreme weather.

While the remarkable 1.17 lbs. weight of the UltaMid 2 will be a welcome reduction to any kit’s overall mass, put any concerns to rest that it translates to a sacrifice in durability. The 100% waterproof Dyneema® Composite Fabrics used to build this elegant structure will outlast garden-variety silnylon materials many times over. Get cozy with the idea of unpacking the comfort and security of home, wherever home may be, for years to come. The UltaMid 2 can be pitched high off the ground or tight to the ground. Set up with adjustable trekking poles or suspend from central peak.

UltaMid 2 - Ultralight Pyramid Tent

An excellent product. Well made and lightweight. I recommend using it with the floor insert.

Finally a tent I don't hate!

Light, strong, easy to set up, versatile, and doesn't fill up my pack -- what's not to love? I've always had a love/hate relationship with tents, and I've gone through quite a few of 3 and 4 season options. Obviously tents are great because they keep you warm and dry in the mountains, but I've always hated how much space they take up in my pack and how much weight they add to my back. Bivy sacks kinda suck during a storm, and single wall models struggle with the moisture management issue.

Enter the UltaMid2. Even with the full insert (which I bought), it's weight-competitive with single wall tents. Both layers compress into a stuff sack smaller than the included sack for either layer, and it's laughably light. I've only had it out in the mountains for a couple nights now, but the fabric seems tough and likely to last for a long time. The translucent material lets natural light in, and the full insert provides plenty of room for two tall adults (6' and 5'10"). The only glaring omission is the lack of a vestibule, but I'll gladly put up with that inconvenience for the sake of a tent I don't want to cover in gasoline and start on fire.
