Now even lighter, the non-freestanding Carbon Reflex™ 2 backpacking tent is designed for adventurers who like to travel ultralight but want more protection than a tarp can offer.

Built for two, the tent delivers full protection, durability and simple setup, but with a packed weight of less than a kg!

  • Carbon fiber poles, lightweight fabrics and zipper-free vestibules make the tent weigh as little as a tarp and pack up just as small.
  • Twin doors, a spacious interior, and roomy vestibules make life on the trail more comfortable.
  • It can be pitched with just the fly and footprint (footprint sold separately) to trim the weight even further.
