    A mountaineering staple, now with more everything.

    When the weather gods start dropping bombs on your basecamp, retreat to the Mountain Hardwear Trango 2 Tent and sit out the storm in time-tested alpine style. The Trango's been around since 1995 and, like cheese and wine, has only gotten better as it's gotten older. Weighing under nine pounds, it's considerably lighter than many basecamp-style tents, but doesn't give up weatherproofing or durability to get there. It pitches using four DAC Featherlite aluminum poles (a fifth supports the vestibule for extra storage space), and boasts fully-taped seams on the fly and floor to keep the elements at arm's length, or even further away. All the fabrics are tightly-woven, high-denier nylon, and feature either DWR treatments, in the case of the body, or polyurethane and silicone coatings (floor and fly) that have been tested in a rain room to ensure they'll stay watertight through the burliest mountain storms.

    You might be stuck inside for a while, but at least you'll have a small window to look out of (not that there'll be much to see), and two mesh doors that'll keep some air moving through so you don't go any crazier than you have to. If the weather gets nice, you can even set up the Trango with the Pitchlight option, which uses just the fly and footprint (sold separately) to provide a shelter that weights under 6.5 pounds. No matter how you choose to pitch, the vestibule has snow flaps that hug the ground to seal out wind and spindrift, fully-welded guy-out points and zipper flaps, and waterproof zippers for extra weather protection.

    Great Home for Winter Conditions

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    The Trango is a great 4-season tent, with extremely livable internal dimensions. This extra space inside compared to other similar two person 4 season tents results in a slightly heavier tent when packed, but it is worth it. Often times, the tent is split up between members of the group to spread out the weight. If you are really concerned about weight, then a double wall tent probably isn't the best choice to begin with. This tent is extremely sturdy, when set up correctly with guy lines, it feels like nothing will make it budge. There is a reason why this tent has been on expeditions all over the world from Patagonia to the Himalayas to Antarctica. Awesome 4-season tent to shield you from the outside conditions, that lets you relax and focus on warming up your fingers and toes, and not worry about if your tent is going to collapse or not!

    Great Home for Winter Conditions

    Four Season for many reasons

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This bad boy is my home away from home in the wintery mountains. I've taken a Trango 2 or 3 on so many expeditions that I can't remember how many. Never a concern when weather hits that you won't be comfy and cozy sitting it out in a Trango. Plenty of pockets and storage make organizing all your shit a breeze.

    Lovin It.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I have been a avid Mountain Hardwear buyer for quite some time but in search of a 4 season tent I did a lot of research before buying. This tent has great reviews from multiple seasons/terrains and is ranked high with outdoor gear labs in their 4 season comparison.
    So I went for it!
    Very easy to put up and the quality of the material is fantastic.
    I am very happy with how roomy the tent is, easily a 2.5 person tent as well as tons of room under the vestibules. There are SO many storage pockets thru out the tent!
    I switched to a Sea to Summit M compression bag and was able to fit the fly, tent and footprint inside and now it lays nicely in the bottom of my pack.
    Only drawback; it is a bit heavy but that's expected with a 4 season.
    I am super happy I stuck with MH on this buy so far. I will be putting it to the real test on the ADT and winter of the Northern states very soon!

    Isn't going anywhere in a tornado.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've pitched this tent on ice in 30 mph sustained winds on Lake Superior in the dead of winter and I slept like a baby. It was tough to get it into the ice and tethered/guyed but once in it was golden! Cuts the wind like a knife if positioned correctly. I've read reviews that say it flaps. If you have all the chords on properly, it does not flap at all.

    The vestibule is big enough to urinate in (just exit on the other side in the morning.) I've done this. It's also big enough to cook in.

    I've been out on two -20* hike ins with this tent this year. No problems at all.

    Tons of pockets, nice zippers, ergonomic, warm, double doors, strong.

    Only drawbacks are at 9 lbs it is a little heavy but for a 4 season, it's reasonable. I usually pull a gear sled behind me in winder anyhow so the weight is not a big deal. Also, the aluminum poles freeze together at the joints so you cannot disconnect them in the morning without giving them light taps and heating them up. I don't know how you'd mitigate the problem but putting the poles on teh exterior of the tent in an ice storm doesn't help.

    I just slept in it @ 40* without the fly the other night and it was great.

    Overall, excellent tent.

    Isn't going anywhere in a tornado.
