Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Lightweight Tent I've ever owned... I love this tent...my gal and I have over 200 miles on the trail already this year and have spent every night in this bad boy! It's light and it's durable (we have dogs that go with us). It lives up to the Mountain Hardware reputation of quality and functionality. The only negative we've experienced is a zipper malfunction. The company promptly replaced the tent with no questions asked! July 29, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by 5 days hike Bought this product few days before going to a 5 days hike with my wife (In southern Oregon section of PCT). Tent is easy to assemble (First night 10-15 min, 5 min after). I loved the smart poles and way they are coming as one unit. I also like the light weight. Had also used the canopy. The tent kept us dry in a short rain, kept the mosquitos out and kept us warm at night. My only complain is size. It is TOO SMALL for two persons. Only couples can fit and even then gear need to stay out. I definitely recommend this product under the size restriction. it is ideal for single hiker and will have plenty of space for gear too July 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very well built tent I wanted a lightweight tent for 1 to 6 day hiking trips. I researched ultralight tents and finally decided on the Mountain Hardwear UL2. I am 6'1", 170 lbs and wanted a tent to fit me and my backpack. This one works perfectly. It is just long enough for me in a long sized bag. The width allows me to keep my backpack and any other gear inside. I tested it out on the Appalachian Trail and it worked perfectly. May 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Incredible! First off, understand that this tent is small. It's really just a big one man, so if you like space, don't buy it. If you don't mind the squeeze, then this tent is the best out there. It's unreal how small it packs down and how light it is. Do yourself a favor and go for it; you won't regret it. May 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just what I wanted I am very happy with this tent, I bought it in January as a 4 season. Condensation: I would highly recommend it to anyone that is looking to avoid condensation through the night. Though impossible, this tent does the best with its open first wall. Set up: Single T style pole makes for an easy construct, Fly is snug and low to reduce catching wind. If you so choose you can offset the fly in the direction of the wind to further reduce draft. Only concern with set up is initial exposure to the rain before the fly is atop (Plan Ahead). Weight: So light I thought I forgot it. Stakes: After reading a previous review I purchased ultralight stakes with the tent, personally I found them unnecessary as the stakes provided are adequate and light. Beyond that I purchased snow anchors from Mountain Hardwear which I would highly recommend if going in deep snow. Size: A snug 2 is perfect in the winter, important to keep in mind that this tent tapers down by your feet and full sized pads may overlap. Room for a pack or 2 pairs of shoes/boots under the fly. Durability: I have not used it enough to really say anything meaningful here but as is custom with most tents a footprint is advised. 3 Season/4 Season: I am using this in the Colorado Rockies at ~11,000 feet in sub zero temperatures. Without a doubt it is 4 Season ready. April 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Across Alaska I have used this tent extensively throughout various ranges in Alaska for the last several years. Most recently it housed me during a ten day Wrangell Mountain sheep hunt, during which I experienced extreme wind, rain, snow, bugs, and everything else Alaska has to offer. The tent performed flawlessly. The weight-to-strength ratio of this tent is the best I've seen. It's also very well vented so condensation is not an issue and rain cannot penetrate. I initially questioned the durability and longevity of the tent but it still has several years left in it despite heavy usage. The sizing runs small for a two person but I have had my wife with me in the tent for several overnight trips and it's been fine (it would get cramped for a multi-night trip). This is without question my go-to ultralight tent - I'll take it over a tarp any day. January 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Light, solid, dry, perfect for one! I hiked the entire PCT with this tent and it held up in high winds, rain and thunderstorms. Never a drop of water inside, never a tear, never a bent pole! Ok, mice and chipmunks chewed their way in now and then, but I don't think any force in the universe can keep them out :P A rounded piece of quality duct-tape on either side of the netting closes the holes after their occasional visits, but then again, they'll just chew new ones next time. This so-called 2-person version is 4 oz heavier than the single person version, but it SO nice with the extra space! Having my pack inside the tent, spreading all my stuff around me. Totally worth 4 oz! It's a tent for laying down - only munchkins could sit comfortably inside. I never missed sitting though, and perfected the art of preparing and eating any meal from the comfort of my sleeping bag. The real trick here is staying awake while eating :) To sell this as a 2-person tent is a joke shared with most other tent-makers in the world. Personally I'd say that a tent should fit 2 regular sleeping pads to be called a 2 person tent. A couple in love would fit if they cut their sleeping pads in a V-shape (or one of them settled for a half-length pad), but in most scenarios this is a comfortable tent for one, a short-term solution for a couple in love or an emergency shelter for 3 people. 4 pegs is all the tent needs to stand firm, even in heavy weather. I bought titanium pegs separately since I find the aluminum pegs that comes with the tent overly solid and heavy. The tent performs best parked with the rear to the wind, but even then the poles sometimes flex during heavy gusts, letting the tent fold down on me. This isn't unusual for an ultra-light tent - it actually performs better in heavy weather than others I've used, but for a good nights sleep on a stormy night, one really has to find a little natural shelter from the wind before pitching the tent. This tent always kept me dry though, even when folding down in heavy rainstorms, even when exposed on mountain tops and ridges, rain, hail and turbulent winds shaking the tent like a giant hand for hours. Once I even met hikers heading back to civilization the day after a storm with torn tents and wet sleeping bags. That really cemented my faith in this tent. Get the footprint as well. It's sold separately, even though I doubt the bottom of the tent would survive long without it, but with the footprint it seems to live forever, so who knows? The footprint is also perfect for cowboy-camping on those clear, mellow, bug-free nights. An amazing tent in the ultra-light class! January 5, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great tent but not sure about durability I've taken this tent out twice now for some overnight trips. Once alone, once with another person. Two people in this tent is tight. If you needed to have all your gear in the tent or under cover, well that's going to be uncomfortable. The tent functioned great and I am very happy with the weight. My primary concern is the long-term durability of the seam around the zipper and the zipper itself. I probably would have accepted another couple ounces of total weight just to beef this area up, where it take the most recurring mechanical stress. I want to re-iterate that it is fine so far and has not failed but it looks to be a point of trouble down the line with a couple more years of wear and tear. I'm generally really careful with gear but I'm going to be extra careful with the zipper. October 8, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Impressive but some drawbacks Bought this spring 2014 and had the tent out quite a bit since then. I use this for my bike touring, so it's for solo use, packed up it's carried attached to my handlebars. Good pack size and weight, more than enough for one person and gear, so very happy with this as I've a 3 month trip around Chile/Argentina and don't want to feel cramped in a tiny tent. Quality is suspect with the plastic clips from the mesh to the poles. One of mine snapped on the first pitching. I had the tent replaced by the dealer and not had a recurrence. I was trying to set the tent up and down with the fly first as I don't want to pitch this tent in a rain storm having to put up the mesh inner first! Have not yet worked out a way to do this; but can take the mesh down before the fly. In my mind this is a major deficiency with the tent. I've been in enough storms to know I want my inner tent dry. Since this is marketed as a free standing tent, and darn expensive one at that, I'd have expected you to be able to pitch fly first. Aside form that it's great, and I'd agree with just about everyone else. I did buy their footprint, it's not a cheap tyvek sheet, it's reinforced and well worth the cost. Even if you don't use the MH one, a footprint is needed to save your groundsheet as it's very thin. August 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by My Take-it-Everywhere Shelter This tent has been on its fair share of trips over the past year that I've had it, including a 19-day thru-hike of the John Muir Trail. It is my favorite tent ever. I once worked in gear rentals and have set up and taken apart more tents than any person ever ought in a lifetime. This tent is incredibly simple and can be set up and taken down, including fly and staking, in minutes. Wind, rain, and pesky bugs were no match for this tent. The fly stays put, though I much preferred having it off. The entire top of the tent is mesh; no unobstructed views of the stars or mountains here unless you've parked it under the trees. As far as 2P UL tents go, this guy is spacious. It has incredible headroom--critical in such close quarters. It comfortably houses my boyfriend (5'9") and me (5'5"). We are lean, so it works for us but don't expect the spacious accommodations of an REI setup. The weight savings are incredible, and combined with its versatility, bug-proofness and peace of mind I prefer to take this with me over my tarp, even on solo trips. Did I mention the little gear pockets on either side of the tent door? Perfect for headlamps and writing/reading material. I love this tent, more than MH will ever know. If you're looking for a shelter that will cut weight, add simplicity to your camp routine and reliably shelter you from pests and weather, look no further. August 6, 2014
