Small, light and fast adventures deserve ultralight, durable shelters optimized for the task. Hyperlite Mountain Gear considered minimalist solo, two-person alpine climbing, and super-ultra thru-hiking adventures when developing the UltaMid 2 Shelter. It's light enough to satisfy dedicated minimalists, yet tough enough to endure harsh winter camping conditions. Made with Dyneema Composite Fabrics--the lightest, strongest, and most waterproof outdoor gear fabric available--this pyramid tent withstands the worst weather conditions, keeping passionate adventurers protected from raging windstorms and heavy snowfall. Use it with the UltaMid 2 Insert for added bug protection and to keep you and your equipment totally dry. It can be pitched on the ground or above it, and dual mesh-lined peak vents allow cooling airflow to pass through during summer adventures. Although Hyperlite Mountain Gear recommends you utilize adjustable trekking or ski poles for set up, the specially-designed cone peak can also accommodate paddles, sticks, or skis, when you're in a pinch.
