SuperMegaUL™ 2 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Maybe? This tent has some great features to it but in definitely has some flaws. If you are camping in a somewhat damp environment and the ground is hard (anywhere in CA) and you cant put in the side guylines the tent will be soaked. The fourth time I used this tent it flipped over in my front yard and the fly tore. It was a stress rip even though it wasn't that tight. This tent is for someone who will use this tent 4 times and give up on it, not an avid tent user like me. I will try to get a new fly from the manufacturer of I will get my money back. Simply to fragile.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Megal Wonderfully light tent. Easy to set up. When going light packing...this is my go to tent. A little snug for 2. I would recommend getting the ground cloth to protect the floor of the tent. Has sufficient tie downs to protect the tent in winds. The quality of the light materials have held up great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light and airy Used this tent a few times now, both as a single person and with two. If you are using it for two you had better be comfortable with each other, it gets a bit snug with two of you in there. For a single person it is perfect. The tent breathes incredibly well, condensation will never be an issue. On the flip side when it is cold out it never much warms up in the tent because it breathes so well. The tent is light and very easy to put up. My only complaint with the tent is that the mesh is pretty fragile and snags easy. Other than that I have loved the tent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GOD TENT Very few products earn the distinction "GOD" anything with me... I have a pair of boots I refer to as my God Boots and this is my God Tent. It's amazing. It's super light weight, durable, I literally wring it out. It's awesome, I throw my footprint down and put up my poles that are like some crazy robotic demiurge that would go into your belly button on Aeon Flux's cartoons. It auto assembled itself the first trip I took it on and not only was I tripping, but yes, I was tripping! It auto-assembled and I threw on the rainfly IN THE RAIN! during the torrential down pour I was able to then clip on the ten (upside down the first time, so I put it back in the stuff sack and then put the poles the correct way, then put the rain fly up and got under the tent tarp and clipped the tent on). What an awesome way to break it in. The tent wasn't damp whatsoever despite the crazy wind and storm. I threw my gear in and leaf my waterproof scrambler with odds and ends outside and then I went to sleep in my Phantom. The next day crossed Lake Serene to attempt Index having had a restful sleep! I love the SuperMega and I carry it with me even when I just want to hammock camp or sleep in my bag in the bivouac spot! It's super mega and ultra light and holds up to 3 people cozily or 2 people comfortably! Feel like a king if it's just you!! The raindrops sound awesome so use the guy-lines and pull it taut!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic tent Light and small with all the functionality you need. Used it recently for a relatively cold, windy night (between 30-40). Did the job! And there was plenty of room for two for us (5'5 and 5'11 person).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!
