Head for the hills.
Alps Mountaineering designers created the 3-Season Mystique 1.0 1-Person Tent for the hiker who isn't afraid to wander off into the backcountry on a solo mission, but isn't crazy enough to want to be rained on. The Mystique provides total protection from the elements in a small, lightweight design that won't weigh you down but won't close in on you like a bivy sack.
- Durable polyester construction
- 2 7000-series aluminum poles for lightweight structure
- Vestibule for plenty of wet-gear storage
- Less than 4 pounds total weight
- Top vent can be kept open or closed, depending on the weather
- Stakes and guy lines included
- Interior mesh storage pocket for organization

Does the rain fly come with this package...
Does the rain fly come with this package or do I have to buy it separately?
Well built 1 man tent!
Took it out for a weekend camping trip. Very easy and fast set up! Was very light and felt well built! I would definetly recommend this tent.
Comfy 1 person tent
It doesn't weigh all that much,it packs down to a reasonable size, and the space inside does not feel cramped.
Construction seems durable, though I wish it didn't require all of the stakes to keep it standing.
Great 1p tent overall, and it's perfect for sticking the third wheel in
ANYONE have any experience with this tent??...
ANYONE have any experience with this tent?? Bueller? .....Bueller??
I don't have experience with this tent, but I do own some of their packs and sleeping bags, and have used their other tents.
Alps is fine for warmer season camping. Thier products are very light and easy to pack, but quality suffers a little for it.
I trust Alps for general 3-season backpacking and camping here in the Blue Ridge, but for Winter or on high windy peaks I go with Black Diamond, Outdoor Research, and MSR.
Awesome Pat. Thank You for info!
I also have no direct experience with this particular tent, but I wanted to add a couple of things to Pat's feedback. First, this is not a true "freestanding" tent. Double poles hooped individually in this configuration will not stand on their own without the ends of the tent being staked. We have some similar 1-person tents and they fall in on themselves until staked. That is NOT an accurate definition of "freestanding". Secondly, as with a very similar tent that I've had for years (Big Agnes Seedhouse SL2) I can tell you that narrow tents with the door at the end absolutely suck to get into...you get burned out on it real soon because you have to shimmy in feet-first and either climb directly into your bag and/or climb over your gear to get in or out, disrupting everything. The end door makes for little more than a slightly larger, glorified bivy sack. Another thing to seriously consider is the location/ distance of the fly's vestibule zipper. Being so far out from the tent door itself, you really have to reach to open or close it and grind through the dirt a bit to get at it...probably in your underwear and barefoot. Also, when removing or putting on your boots, since your head is already at the door and you need to get your feet there or climb out backwards, you have to do this crunched up spin twist maneuver thing in a tight width to get into the right position. That sucks, too.
I'm not sure exactly what tent to recommend in this price range, but you'll be better served with a side door in something like the MSR Carbon Reflex 1 or some variation of another tent that opens to the side and almost full length. Just my thoughts. Hope they help.
Phil, outstanding insight. Things I didn't even think about. thanks so much for taking the time to respond!!!! I really appreciate that!
