Trek & Travel Pocket Soaps
A one-man fortress that's just as reliable as shelters twice its size.
Even if you're a weight-shaving ultralight-adventure addict, you'll find space for the Sea to Summit 3-Season 1-Person Specialist Solo Shelter. After all, this shelter packs down to the size of a water bottle. Although it was designed with minimalist appeal, there's still enough room inside to sit up, and just outside the door there's a small vestibule for your pack and boots. At a feathery 625 grams, this fully-enclosed shelter houses cyclists, backpackers, and sea-kayakers from the elements without sacrificing weather protection.
- Pertex Endurance fabric used in the canopy is ultralight, breathable to help mitigate condensation, and waterproof in normal rain conditions
- Double stitching and bar tacking offer extra durability at stress points
- Mesh-panel doors offer plenty of ventilation and protect against bugs
- Reflective guy lines keep you from tripping over your shelter in the dead of night
- Shelter can be erected with only trekking poles and natural anchors, eliminating the need for poles and shaving the weight down to 445 grams
- Other details include internal storage pocket, fully seam-sealed construction for waterproofing, ultralight aluminum poles for less weight without sacrificing overall structural strength
- Item #STS0122
- Q & A
Bivy killer -wind boss
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
First time using it I pitched on a windy ridge broadside to the wind at 11,000 ft. Despite gusts hitting me broadside all night, it held up.
The next trip was windless and cold - no condensation. Pitching is easy and it is far sturdier than it looks.
One weak point is that the poles sit on a reinforced patch on the tent floor. They can slip off and poke a hole in the floor if pitched on hard rock. On dirt they divit in the ground and stay there. I might glue some o rings on the patches to corral the poles but that would add two grams....
The dimensions at the feet are listed at 11" wide. Is this a problem for sleeping pads? I'm 6 ft tall.
Since this is 7' long, with it tapering down to 11" at the foot, you should have an issue since there would be some space down there for extra items.
