A single wall tent but with great ventilation options to prevent condensation build up. Designed to have the fly raised up off the ground, and coupled with a top vent and a mesh panel running around the top of the tub floor connected to the fly for airflow and minimizing condensation build up.

Heaps of room inside with good head height and ability to sit upright, and a wide 120cm floating tub floor. Waterproof with PU3000mm fly and PU5000mm floor and a sturdy pyramid design to handle most weather. 

Weighs just 990g - no pole included, but compatible with trekking pole set at 125-130cm, or aluminium or carbon fibre pole (see options below)
