    Lightweight versatility, four-season protection.

    The lightweight Alps Mountaineering Tasmanian 2 Tent provides 4-season protection so you and a backpacking buddy can trek over mountains year-round. The taffeta fly and floor have PU coatings for weather-resistance, and the walls have no-see-um mesh windows to bring in the breezes on warm summer evenings.

The Tasmanian provides plenty of space for you and your fellow backpacker, with nearly four feet of head space, two doors, mesh storage pockets for keys and headlamps, and two large vestibules for all your gear. Alps Mountaineering also included a gear loft, aluminum stakes, guy lines, and repair swatches for your convenience.

    ALPS MOUNTAINEERING TASMANIAN 2 TENT

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Burnt orange 4 season 2 person tent.

    7 pounds is average for a 4 season tent this size.

    Available from: $175.00- $225.00. (Oct 2016) This is not the least expensive 4 season tent but it provides more than adequate features for the price.



    There is a 3 person model that fits 2 people with winter gear.

    Features

    The 2 piece tent base & fly come together with clips and the fly has narrow sleeves that form the front and back. Lots of reinforced tie outs. Fly reaches the ground all around. There is about 3 inches between the tent mesh and the fly. This provides good ventilation. Aluminun poles.



    I snore, so this 2 person tent is really just a one person tent. "Set it up way over there" I'm told. I wonder why?



    Wicked good for camping in the snow. I like to blend in to the surroundings so I prefer subdued tent colors when not camping in winter. I don't like to advertise - Campsite here. In the winter the opposite is true.



    Buy the footprint. The tent floor that comes with the tent is not ripstop. Seal all of the "factory sealed and taped" seams when you first get the tent to be sure there is no leaks when you set up in the snow. I like Coughlin's seam sealer - use it on seams inside the tent and fly bottom like a rolling on antiperspirant.



    Don't bother buying the cheap TYVEK sheets sold on ebay - they crinkle and make noise on the snow when you are trying to sleep. I don't know, but I've been told that you can't wash Tyvek.



    Customize your TASMANIAN 2 or 3 tent by adding six 1 inch plastic web female buckles at 6 places to the tent fly straps so there are two buckles on the fly both the tent and the footprint all snap together. Saves time when you setup or tear down in the dark when its snowing or even worse, snizzling.



    The back vestibule is smaller than the front vestibule. If you are careful, you can arrange your coffee pot/kitchen here, provided that the snow is deep enough, so that you can make coffee right from your sleeping bag out the rear door under the open vestibule.



    Setup - You need a long narrow space to set up this tent. The tent is kinda long when set up correctly. It measures 13 feet (about 4 M). I like to use plastic grocery bags filled with snow and buried for anchors for the reflective guy lines. Easy enough to dig out when you tear down. Leave no trace.



    Tent comes with good vents. It comes with a gear loft and with lots of mesh gear pouches on the sides. The aluminum poles have two 3-way connectors that are really stronger than they look. The center clip has a binder - looks like a paper clip that holds the two main poles together where they cross - a challenge to connect with mittens on.



    Compare this tent with the Snugpak Bunker.

    The Bunker is more expensive and has no footprint nor vestibules, so you need tarps or you get to deal with moisture.



    The Mountain Hardwear Trango 2 tent has some better features, but it costs 3 times as much.



    Of course, the Hillberg Kaitum 2 is much better, but it lists $885.00.

    ALPS MOUNTAINEERING TASMANIAN 2 TENT

    Great, but confusing at first

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Used this tent quite frequently over the summer and autumn in the Uintas and Maple Canyon, and a few times in the Wasatch during the winter. Took a little while to figure out the setup when I first bought it, but once you get the system down it's really straight forward and sturdy. It's a great introductory 4-season tent, and for the price it's an excellent option for people getting into cold weather camping. It's not the smallest or the lightest for backpacking, but again for the price and how comfortable we were it was great. .

    Great tent for sure

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Ive used this tent all spring and summer. Super easy to setup and take down. Takes roughly 5 minutes without the fly 8 minutes with the fly. I love the side storage for small items inside the tent. Very durable when in areas exposed to high winds. I would highly recommend this tent to anyone. I will be using this in the dead of winter this year as well so when I get that chance I will be sure to update.

    Great tent for sure

    Keith, I bought this tent yesterday. This is the first tent I've ever set up in my life and I was somewhat confused with the instructions. I was wondering if you could help me out?

    On the fourth part of the instructions, it says you need to insert the grey fly poles into the pole sleeves on the underneath side of the flysheet. Makes perfect sense. But then it doesn't specify whether or not you put the ends of the poles into the grommets towards the front and back part of the tent? I presume you do because there's a second hole in the strap however since it doesn't say straightforwardly I was hesitant to put them in. Is that indeed what you do?

    And also, have you used this tent in high winds/rain? How did it hold up? It's supposedly four seasons and I wanted to take it with me to one of the windiest regions on Earth, Patagonia.

    Thanks!

    Unanswered Question

    Do you think this tent would hold up on Mt Rainier at ~9200 feet in the winter, or would that be a stretch for this tent?

    Does it come with a footprint?

    Is this tent supposed to be a less expensive version of the MSR Fury Tent? They look identical from the pictures. Just wondering if anyone has used this ALPs version and how it compares! I am looking for a 4 season but I cannot spend $400+ on one right now.

    I own the Tasmanian and just saw a Fury at a demo. From what I can tell, they are nearly an identical design. Fury only has one door though and I think the Tasmanian's main vestibule is larger. Minor differences though and weight/area/height are pretty close. Materials are listed as different, but both tents should hold up well for 4-season use. My Alps has...
