A lightweight, fly-only shelter that accommodates fast and light treks, tours, and expeditions.

A multi-day ski tour in the late spring requires a lot of necessary gear, and the Rab Element 2 Shelter enables you to cut weight while still providing ample shelter for the milder weather. Its floorless design lets you carve out a comfortable basecamp in the snow, and it also works with the Element 2 Bug Tent (sold separately) to create a solid shelter against biting insects and summer storms.

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Hiked the AT in December and January from Harpers Ferry to Killington with a 7x9 tarp. Did Katahdin to Monson and Maryland's C&O Canal in summer with a 5x7 tarp. Saw this and thought great a flat tarp with a beak end, I won't have to use a rain jacket to shield my head anymore. What a disappointment. Not sure how to seam seal it with the reinforcing fabric covering the interior ridge stitching. Set it up to see if it was worth the trouble. Goes up easy but those eyelets are going to leak if it is strung up between two trees. And they are closer together than I expected. Using trekking poles I didn't fit at 5'11" and 160lbs. I was brushing against the poles or the sides even on a diagonal. Looked like there would be a lot of condensation in a storm or cold weather. Forgot when I ordered it how frustrating I find operating european zippers. They're on the opposite side.

Two. But a snug two. I'd tape the length and width out on the floor with masking tape to make sure you're comfortable with the amount of space you have.
