Rated 5 out of 5 by It's a beautiful thing! I just used my new SuperMega UL2 for its overnight debut. It was a windy, cold (but dry) autumn night. My first attempt to set it up went quickly and without a hitch. I used the Big Agnes Fly Creek footprint which lined up nicely with the corners of the tent. With a minimal amount of line adjustment I had a stable, roomy structure for me and my pack. I think this is going to be an awesome tent for my JMT thru hike next July. Thanks Mountain Hardwear!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Survived a 1,700 mile bicycle tour This is by far the best tent I have ever used, and I spend about 3 months a year sleeping in a tent. I was about to start a bicycle tour from SE AK down to MT when my last tent's poles broke. Under pressure, I needed to make a quick decision on a new tent and chose this one. It was a good choice. This tent is amazingly light. Even though this tent is much bigger than my last one person tent it weighs less. I was skeptical of the super thin rainfly at first, but now I'm a believer. The thin rainfly makes the tent ventilate extremely well and not have any condensation form on the inside, even when it frosts in the morning. It is extremely waterproof and survived several downpours. The floor of the tent is thick in all the right places and allows the tent to be used without a ground cloth. It is free standing, which was very important to me because I often camp in places where it is very difficult to use stakes. I rated the tent as "fits slightly small" because for 2 people it would be a squeeze, but totally doable if you're doing a minimalist trip. For one person it is very roomy and I was able to bring all my stuff inside the tent. October 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Waited to write this until after adequate testing.. Well, its amazing. I've used this tent 20+ times now, through hail, snow, 0 degree nights and significant rain. It held true. Pros: Light. It's stupid light. Laughably light. You pick up the bag and say : theres no way a tent is in this. Easy setup and take down. Like 5 minutes. So so so simple, even the first time. Waterproof. I've been in some crazy rain with this, and I still don't understand how I stay dry when the fly is so thin, it's so thin you can see through it pretty much but ive never gotten wet even in terrible situations. Cons: It's definitely better to think of this more as a 1.5 man. It's very roomy for one person, and extremely tight for two. Better be a good friend or a partner cuz you'll be up against each other at night. That being said, it's worth the weight savings and the tapered shape makes it doable. Overall it's the best tent I've ever used and probably the best tent out there. October 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Light weight & breathable Tent I love this tents airflow, I sleep hot, so this works well for me. With the mesh sides and top, it makes it easy to see the stars all night. I wish that the bottom side panels were up another foot, for sleeping privacy and water puddles splash :) As with many 2 persons tents, I have tried it a few times and unless you have smaller pads it was tight. I use it for myself and my pack, and it works great for that. One thing I wish would be different is the angle as you are getting out, there is a pole that almost always stabs me in the back unless you stay low. This tent is so lightweight and sets up in a small spot, looks good out there and does its job, allowing me to sleep in nature! September 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tiny but strong Broke this baby in on the Kesugi Ridge in Denali State Park, AK the first week of September. My sister and I were cozy but comfortable for a few nights together, though I wouldn't want to share for too much longer than that, it's a typical UL 2 person (I think they like to count your pack as the 2nd person, not another human). The second night out we pitched camp just before it started down pouring and the rain didn't let up for almost 12 hours. Had no problems with getting wet, though you have to make sure to pitch the fly out far enough from the tent, because you can get a decent amount of condensation under the fly if you're in there for awhile. Can't wait to see what other adventures it can handle! September 14, 2015
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
