Lightweight, packable, and ready for the trail.
The good folks at Burton collaborated with the tent wizards at Big Agnes to create the spacious and convenient Burton Nightcap Tent. This lightweight, packable tent utilizes aluminum poles to keep weight down, and the fly and floor are given a waterproof coating to help keep you protected from the elements. The vestibule is perfect for gear storage and can be left open for ventilation or closed with the Stormflap zipper when bad weather crops up. Interior mesh pockets let you organize things easily, great for spending more than one night at a time in the tent. Reflective guylines, tent webbing, and glow in the dark buckles all make things easier when you're stumbling back from the last set of the night, ready to fuel up and head back out to find the after-party.

- Q & A
Set up, but not tested yet.
Well the tent is neatly packaged with a place to put all the bits. After having my heart set on the Rattlesnake mntglo, this tent came up on sale and it was too good a deal to say no, i mean it still a great portable tent (safari). When i recieved it and unpacked it, it was very easy to set up with an x shaped frame all in one pole set(hub), one small pole for the roof and and tent pole splint made by Helinox. The tent itself was bigger than expected, long and pretty high. Defnitely more of a 2 man rather than typical 1.5 man, so was really happy. Will likely have to wait until next year to test it out outside, but will be sure to post some pics when I do!
Quality and Style
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This tent is rad!
Aside from looking awesome, the indigo color keeps the tent cool on those hot mornings.
On the inside, the tent has plenty hoops for string up various nets or gear/lights. The footprint is a nice size - my 6'2" friend slept comfortably in here. There are convenient adjustable vents in the ceiling to flush out heat when it gets too hot.
On the outside, The vestibule nicely fits over smaller backpacking backpacks to keep them dry (but out of the tent) when you have some night time weather events.
I previously had the REI Passage 2 tent and this tent has a similar functionality to that tent, just better. This tent is significantly lighter and packs significantly smaller than the REI. This thing can tackle just about any backpacking trip!
What footprint should I get for this tent?
