Tangent™ 2 5 5 2 2
Fantastic Tent Excellent tent. First use was on Mount Rainier. Weather deteriorated through the night with sustained winds at 40-45 MPH, gusting somewhere between 60-70 MPH in open terrain. Tent kept my son and I dry and protected. Incredibly durable and tough. Performed like one would expect an expedition tent to perform. Highly recommended. May 6, 2014
Best mountaineering tent for solo trips For the past 25 years I have been looking for the perfect solo mountaineering tent. This is it. In the past I have had over a dozen tents that I have used for mountaineering and snow camping. Most recently I had two tents. A Trango 2 for mountaineering, and a REI Cirque for snow camping. This tent takes the best qualities of both those tents and put them into one. Most notably a robust mountaineering tent with two side doors that weighs in under 6lbs. To test this tent out I took it up snow camping at 6000' on Mt Hood in bad weather. It was 32F-25F with 40mph winds gusting to 60mph. I setup the tent and built a wall to deflect the wind over the tent as much as possible (see pictures). The tent setup easily in high winds. I am 5'10" and there was a lot of headroom. I was able to get myself and all of my gear inside the tent. It could fit two people comfortably, but it's not as roomy as the Trango 2. The tent was rock solid through the night. Even though the snow eventually drifted and buried the leeward side of the tent almost half way it was comfortable and not even too noisy inside. I had a tiny bit of frost on the inside of the tent in the morning, but since I couldn't open the bottom vents due to blowing snow and the snow almost completely buried my fly cutting down airflow, it was better than I expected. From the morning pictures you can see that it was a windy night. There was lots of rime ice built up on the windward side. My summary would be that if you are looking for a lightweight bomber solo luxury tent, this is it! It also would work great for two people for shorter trips. If you will be living in it for weeks with 2 people I would go for a Trango 2. March 31, 2014
