The Mountain Hardwear EV 2 Tent is the perfect 2 person backpacking tent for your next hiking trip!

The thin design of the EV 2 fits on most ledges and the clip setup aids in your highwind pitches. Made of a TX07PU fabric that is strong and lightweight, the nonstretch laminate strengthens and becomes stable when the tent is pitched. The lightweight Atlas Scandium XL poles shave weight off the tent, yet provide a steady and durable sturdiness once the tent is set-up.

The make of this backpacking tent is great for protection from the elements outside utilizing its integrated durable vestibule, while an interior zip with built in ventilation helps aid with the management of cold and frost.
