Rated 5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beta light tent For the size, weight and cost this tent can not be beat. I have used for years, across Scotland, Colorado trail twice, the whole AT, just to name a few. The only things I have changed or added was a 12 inch mosquito net sewn on the bottom edge and 5 more tie downs sewn between original tie downs for when it really rains. March 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Huge fast and light shelter I've been using this tarp tent for 2 years and its phenominal for Colorado and Utah backpacking. If I dont feel like using hiking poles I'll just use sticks to hold it up. At sub 1.5 lbs it easily fits 2 people, a 60lb dog and all of our gear and keeps everything sheltered from rain. Just be aware you are sleeping on the ground and have no protection from bugs. I'd never use this for camping in Vermont in May but in the right location its the best backpacking shelter, extremely light and durable. September 6, 2013
