Dragontail™ 2-Person UL Mountaineering Tent

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.

  • Ultralight: Strong, hooped tent design affords full protection at less than 5 lbs.
  • Improved Protection: Zippered seal on overhead ventilation tunnel seals out spindrift and new tent pole clips ease setup.
  • New profile: Peaked center helps shed rain and snow, and a smaller floor plan increases tent pitching options.
  • Additional Features: DuraShield™-coated fabrics; large vestibule; four internal pockets; multiple reflective guy points.
