A different kind of final frontier.
While its name might allude to visions of outer space and intergalactic adventures, the Brooks-Range Propel Tent: 2-Person 4-Season enables you to reach spaces and places in the backcountry and high alpine that no man has ever gone before—no matter the season. This 4-season tent boasts a freestanding construction that comes fully equipped with five DAC aluminum poles. However, should you desire to lighten your load, the Propel's attachment points are compatible with trekking or ski poles, which makes your overnight tours that much more enjoyable.
More importantly, the Propel boasts a tenacious, polyurethane-coated nylon fabric that withstands elements of all shapes and sizes, and its fully taped seams further safeguard you from wayward precipitation and moisture alike. Additionally, the tent features reinforced stake points that not only assure longevity but maintain a firm grip on your tent, so you don't have to worry about your home base slipping loose and careening off into a black hole. And as its name suggests, the Propel is designed to accommodate two people comfortably, and the vestibules offer dependable shelter for your gear that's less impervious to the pitfalls of Mother Nature.

tents are cool
I just wanted a 4 season tent! It seems to be lightweight and packable. I'm not complaining about it, but I have not put it to the test yet!
Not perfect, but super lightweight
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Let me first mention the shortcomings of this tent:
- it's quite small and cramped for 2 people (note this also makes the tent quite warm in winter conditions)
- it's kind of a pain to feed the main tent pole through the sleeve when setting it up
- condensation tends to build up on the inside walls if not well ventilated
That all being said, this tent weighs next to nothing and will keep you very warm. It's also quite affordable. It's definitely not perfect, but you also can't compare this tent to an alternative that weighs 8 lbs.
Would be okay for one person
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I purchased this tent recently for my wife and I to use when hiking. We took it out for one night to field test it. It was raining and cold and we stayed dry and pretty warm. Although light and compact, a 2 person tent this is not. My wife and I are both short people but due to the angle of the wall at the foot end, it is impossible to not have your feet touch the fabric and get your sleeping bag wet. For one short person it would be adequate, but for two it was VERY small. I would not recommend this tent to anyone looking for a tent for 2. Also... there is only one door and vestibule making crawling into the tiny space difficult. I am returning this product and purchasing a half or quarter dome style tent instead.
Decent tent, but....
...does not have 2 doors nor 2 vestibules. Not sure why BC specs says this...typo?
