Catering to fast-and-light backcountry travelers, the Mountain Hardwear SuperMega UL 2 backpacking tent offers freestanding geometry and full weather protection at just 2 pounds, 2 ounces!
Catering to fast and light backcountry travelers, thru-hikers and touring cyclists, the Mountain Hardwear SuperMega UL 2 backpacking tent offers freestanding geometry and full weather protection for two in a two pound, two ounce package. The PitchLight option makes an ultra lightweight shelter at 1 pound and 10 ounces!
The unique pole structure of the SuperMega UL 2 allows for a freestanding set up requiring only two poles, which helps to reduce the packed weight of this tent. A fully taped, full-coverage rain fly works with the pole architecture to create a 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 2. Mountain Hardwear guarantees watertight construction through taped perimeter seams, welded corners and welded guy clip anchors.
Other features of the lightweight SuperMega UL 2 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 this tent can be set up using Mountain Hardwear’s PitchLight option using only the fly, poles and footprint (sold separately) for a weatherproof, two person shelter weighing only 1 pound and 10 ounces!
