- at the top of the tent you will find 9 DAC Featherlite™ NSL aluminum poles that are lightweight and sturdy – this aids in eliminating unnecessary poles and reducing the overall tent weightwithout sacrificing stability
- This tent has a unique design in that it lifts during strong winds instead of the falling down and bending that can occur in some tents.
