Catering to fast and light solo backcountry travelers, thru-hikers and touring cyclists, the Mountain Hardwear SuperMega UL 1 backpacking tent offers freestanding geometry and full weather protection for one in a 1 pound, 12 ounce package.
The unique pole structure of the SuperMega UL 1 allows for a freestanding setup requiring only one hubbed DAC Featherlite NSL pole, which helps to reduce the packed weight of this tent. A fully taped, full-coverage rain fly works with the pole architecture to create an integrated dry entry vestibule at the single door that can stow packs or muddy boots. The welded zipper flap construction is lighter and drier than traditional sewn flap designs, shaving even more weight form the SuperMega UL 1. Mountain Hardwear guarantees watertight construction through taped perimeter seams, welded corners and welded guy clip anchors.
Other features of the lightweight SuperMega UL 1 backpacking tent include internal storage pockets, which help to stow smaller items inside the tent, and guyout loops to help secure the tent in windier conditions.
For even lighter travels, the Mountain Hardwear SuperMega UL 1 can be set up using the PitchLight option, which incorporates only the fly, poles and footprint (sold separately) to provide a weatherproof single-person shelter weighing only 1 pound, 6 ounces!
