Super lightweight! This tent is even lighter than you might think! When I received it I was really impressed. I tried to set it up at home before the trip because I've read reviews that it might be tricky. Okay, it is tricky, but all you need is practice. First time it took me about 20-30 minutes, but now (after only 3 uses) I can do it in less than 10 minutes. The room inside is for two persons, not more. If you're alone than you will be able to fit everything inside. Because it is single walled the condensation might be a problem for you. I leave the vents open, but still have moisture on the walls in the morning. I have warm Ultralamina 0 sleeping bag so I don't care too much about moisture. The material of the floor of the tent is super thin, so I would not recommend putting it on the ground. Winter camping is the best use of this tent (however even in this case I recommend buying footprint). Overall this tent is super awesome for light backpacking. March 13, 2014
great bare bones shelter Love this tent. Used a couple times on Shasta and down in eastern Sierras ice climbing. It weighs almost nothing and packs unbelievably small. I scoured the internet reading reviews on all different products and I decided on the Direkt 2. Its not perfect but the pros far out weigh the cons. Its really easy and fast to put up, even in wind. I am 5'9 and I fit with room to spare. I usually only use for myself and there hasn't been any problems for me and my gear. 2 people, especially taller than me, will be cramped a bit. But for a single person shelter its a no brainer, I mean it weighs about a pound more than some of the bivy sacks out there. No ventilation problems of note There is a tiny pocket, but its so small that doesn't have any real use. Great tent. I just ordered the vestibule, can't wait to try it out. February 24, 2014
