Dragontail™ 2-Person UL Mountaineering Tent



Lightweight single-wall expedition tent – our lightest 4-season shelter for two.

Engineered with superior space and ventilation, the Dragontail single-wall expedition tent excels where others fail. Its cavernous, hooped design is upgraded with a weather- shedding, peaked center and easy-pitching pole clips. Plus, an overhead vent – now with zippered closures – runs the length of the expedition tent, providing the ventilation that's critical to single-wall performance. The seam-taped silnylon packs small offering compact protection that alpine ascents, ski tours and minimalist, 4-season adventures demand.
