    Details

    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

    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....

    @hikingsomewhere - that bear canister appears to be the Wild Ideas Bearikade Scout, which is made of carbon fiber and aluminum and weighs 1 lb 12 oz. In addition to weighing less, it also makes your wallet a lot lighter. ;^) Sounds like you have the BV450 based on the weight you mentioned. Lighter options include the Ursack (7.5-8.2 oz) and ZPacks Bear Bagging Kit (3 oz), but they require more finesse to use, and they aren't allowed in some wilderness areas... definitely check before you go.

    The dimensions at the feet are listed at 11" wide. Is this a problem for sleeping pads? I'm 6 ft tall.

    Charles,



    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.



    Shoot me an email anytime you have questions!
