Built for durability.
“Mountain weather” means something more to avid hikers and backpackers. It’s not just windy or rainy or sunny or cold—it’s all of it (and usually in one day). For a lightweight two-man tent that can withstand the ever-changing conditions of the alpine, choose the Salewa Litetrek II Tent: 2-Person 3-Season.
If the semi-geodesic double-wall construction can stand up to the Technical University of Munich’s wind-tunnel test with 55-mile per hour winds, it can stand up to the gale force winds that frequent high elevations. Speaking of wind, with the Litetrek’s self-supporting design, setting up camp is a breeze, even when there is not enough space or its too rocky to step up guy-lines or stakes. The tear-resistant fabrics feature comfort-saving water-resistance, even if water makes its way underneath the floor, while the mesh and mosquito net entrance contribute to the tent’s ventilation. An additional rear panel allows for a flow of fresh air without waking up to a blanket of dew.
When you’re in a rush to get to your camp cocktail, the 3S Speed Set Up Solution allows you to set up the shelter in one pitch. And if the weather is nice enough, you can go the extra-lazy (or minimalist) route and set up the fly on its own. Or if you’re stuck inside thanks to a few unrelenting storm clouds, an extendable weatherproof vestibule offers dry protection for your gear and cooking setup.
