Basin and Range Escalante 2 Tent: 2-Person 3-Season

A room with a view.

Whether you're exploring the Colorado Plateau or camping somewhere in the Pacific Northwest, the Basin and Range Escalante 2 Tent delivers the coverage you need to get out and stay out. This sturdy backcountry shelter is built with a durable polyester shell and fully sealed seams to keep water out, and the light and tough aluminum poles ensure the tent stays upright when high winds come blowing through your camp—just don't forget to stake it out securely. Two large doors grant easy access in and out of the tent when nature calls in the early hours in the morning. And since two people, a dog, and gear make things a little cramped inside any tent, the Escalante features dual vestibules to help keep the tent floor clear of clutter and gear.

  • A 3-season tent great for camping and overnight backpacking trips
  • 2-person capacity with dual vestibules sleeps two with room for gear
  • Rainfly with fully sealed seams prevents rain from seeping through
  • Vents promote breathability to reduce condensation along tent walls

Great Bang for the Buck

    After several trips to the mountains and desert, I'm very pleased with this tent. May be a little bulky for 3+day backpacking trips, but great for weekend adventures. Great quality and design. No regrets with this purchase!

    I had the opportunity to test this tent out for a couple of weekends, and I thought it was great! It's a simple, no frills tent that doesn't weigh too much, and comes at a great price.

    The tent is very easy to set up; we were able to get it fully staked out in about 5 minutes with two people, and I was able to do it myself in less than ten. The inside is roomy, and comfortable sleeps two people plus a small amount of gear; and the two vestibules will easily protect your packs and other larger items. Ventilation was great; I never experienced any excessive condensation, yet we stayed warm even when the temps dropped below freezing. The packs down to an easily packable size, and while it's far from being the lightest tent on the market you could definitely take it on a shorter backpacking trip.
