Hyperlite Mountain Gear holds a reputation for designing some of the best ultralight backcountry gear in the world. Founded by Mike St. Pierre, the Maine-based company now presents the Mid-1 tent, an ultra-lightweight piece of camping gear suited for solo backpackers.
Boasting a Dyneema and carbon fiber construction, the tent is durable and fully waterproof. It’s impermeable to the extent that Hyperlite Mountain Gear goes on to tout it as a three-season tent that can withstand harsh wind and rain. The biggest USP of the tent is its weight. Weighing just 1.05 lbs, the tent not only reduces the load from your back but also makes space for other equipment to fit in your backpack.
Measuring 32-inch-wide, 54-inch-tall, and 96-inch-long, the tent offers 20 square feet of living space. The fully enclosed tent sits around a single-pole design and is quick and easy to set up.
Other features include a 6-inch DCF10 bathtub floor that prevents insects and water from getting inside. Furthermore, the rear of the bathtub floor has multiple adjustment points alongside an apex cone that’s been strengthened with DCH50.
In addition to basic features, the tent comes with interchangeable vestibule door tie-out points. Then we have the six perimeter tie-outs with line locs strengthened with DCF11. Not to mention, a couple of rear mid-panel tie-outs, two side mid-panel tie-outs, and one apex tie-out.
The tent also has a No-See-Um crescent mesh door with dual #3 YKK zippers that allows light and air to get inside. Available on the official website of Hyperlite Mountain Gear, the tent costs $599.
