UltaMid 2 – Ultralight Pyramid Tent

From $699.00

SKU: 2-02021-1

Our legendary four-season, two-person ultralight pyramid shelter.

IDEAL FOR

  • 1-2 People
  • Four-Season Expeditions
  • Protection from the Elements
  • Pairing with Inserts & Ground Cloths

THE PERFECT END TO ADVENTUROUS DAYS

When it comes to portable shelters, only some 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 1.2 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. Made of 100% waterproof Dyneema® Composite Fabric (formerly Cuben Fiber), it is an excellent waterproof barrier between you and the elements. Get cozy with the idea of unpacking the comfort and security of home, wherever home may be. The UltaMid 2 can be pitched high off the ground or tight to the ground. Set up with adjustable trekking poles or suspend from the central peak. UltaMid Inserts, Ultralight Stake Kit, and UltaMid Carbon Fiber Tent Pole are sold separately.

Finally!
Finally a tent that checks the boxes: ultralight, large and roomy, flexible...add half or full insert as needed. This will be my do it all tent and so far it exceeds my expectations.

Last tent I will ever buy. Pitched in less than 5 mins before major rainstorm came through. High winds and no issues at all. Amazing product. I’m buying another one for my son!

Nice Shelter

I bought three Ultamid 2 shelters, carbon fiber poles, ultralight tent stakes and ground cloth for my SAR team to carry in the field. Easy, intuitive setup and solid. Good alternative to a bothy if you have to hunker down or get out of the elements.
