Why We Like The Highlands 2 Tent

The lightweight Alps Mountaineering Highlands 2 Tent gives us 4-season protection so we can trek with a buddy over mountains year-round. The taffeta fly and floor have PU coatings for weather-resistance, and the walls have windows that zip open to let breezes flow through the no-see-um mesh on warm summer evenings. This tent provides plenty of space, with nearly four feet of head room, two doors, mesh storage pockets for keys and headlamps, and two large vestibules for all the gear.


  • Lightweight 4-season backpacking tent for two people
  • No-see-um mesh windows promote cooling airflow
  • Polyester taffeta floor and fly with PU coatings keep you dry
  • Poles with weatherproof shock cord provide a sturdy setup
  • Two doors, two vestibules open up space and storage
  • Aluminum stakes, guy lines, and repair swatches included
  • Mesh storage pockets and gear loft organize small items

Great tent for the price

I've used it several times
Size Bought:
2 person
5' 10"

I’ve backpacked in this tent in single digit windy weather in the middle of the winter in Colorado and have had pretty good experiences. As long as you are prepared with good body insulation, adequate sleeping bag and insulated pad, the rent does the job very well.

Wallet friendly+ performance= Highlands

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Size Bought:

We recently wanted to get a 4 season, the AM highlands 2 jumped out for the price and options. After some research we decided to jump on it and try it. We just came back from a 5 day hike which included everything from blue bird 70° days to "seek inside shelter " extreme weather. The coldest night was 41° at 4am and the hottest day was 87° on the dunes in direct sunlight with the grand finale on our last day. We had zero cell service and saw black clouds rolling in on lake Michigan, we turned on the walkies to get a NOAA weather report which was warning "seek inside shelter, heavy to severe thunderstorms, 2-4" of rain, 4-6' waves shoreline with 9'+ on open water, hail possible, sustained 39knot winds, 58knot gusts" let's just say it was absolutely correct, it sounded like a jet engine in our tent, the wind was violent and constant. The rain was so heavy and loud I couldn't hear my wife speaking to me. Aside from some frame wiggle here and there and some slight shaking it did surprisingly well. This storm showed it's ugly little face around 1030p and didn't shut it mouth and leave us alone till around 545a. It made us confident enough to do some other locations we frequent that are known for erratic and violent weather and is now our preferred tent. This is only the second outing with it currently so I can't speak on durability, but I'm sure as with anything if you take care of it, it will last. It certainly looks and feels like a quality build. let's start with the negatives, while spacious enough to store me and my wife's gear in the smaller vestibule with a good amount of space inside, it can feel cramped at times with the sagging tent walls and shorter peak height. We are accustom to a larger door and vestibule door, this one is smaller but works well, it's a crawl on all fours type of entry and exit. The pros- at less than 8lbs it's not "heavy" for a 4 season with such a large fly and the set up is a breeze. It performed flawlessly user torrential downpour and HEAVY winds. It stayed warm when cold (although we have not have it in sub 40°, yet) and cool enough to mid day nap in when hot *The gear loft doubles excellent as an "entertainment center" yeah we pack a tablet and watch a movie a night, hangs in the loft perfectly for late night viewing.... we are closing in on 900 miles hiked, we earned that right lol ;)

Good entry level 4 Season Tent

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Size Bought:
5' 5"

Ok, so I got my tent, set it up in my living room, checked all zippers, ect. Everything works, NOTE*** inside the tent has pockets that run the entire inside of the length of the tent on both sides, way nice, love it. Took tent out two days later for a 6 mile hike into the Wilderness in snow. See pics Set up is pretty easy, since I had read directions before I set up in my living room. Tent Poles are nice, had a bit of an issue taking them apart, but that's because they were frozen solid together as if welded. Not manufacturer issue, cold issue. This was the first outing with the tent. For a tent at this price, it worked good. Worth buying.

Light rain for an hour and we are soaked

First time using this tent - rain fly is completely useless. If I hadn't waited until after the return timeframe to try it out I would return it. Do not use if any rain is forecast for your trip. I gave it two stars because it would be a very nice fall tent on a dry trip.

Nighttime cold relief

I've put it through the wringer

For the price this tent is probably unbeatable. It compares favorably to my partners Hilleberg Nallo 3 GT in almost every way. The Nallo is significantly stronger but also costs 3-4 times as much. The ALPS is hardly weak, though - we've had it out in 40-50mph winds with only 3 guylines deployed and it held up fine. I wouldn't take it on Denali, but for lower 48 mountaineering this thing is bomber. Where it really shines, though, is livability and comfort. There are very few tents I'd rather spend a cold winter trip in. It's big (we slept 3-up in the 2 person version on Rainier and Adams). There's gear storage for days in the [awesome] two vestibules, pockets the lengths of both walls, and the included gear loft. It's WARM. It also vents really well - I've never had condensation build up inside, even camped in the PNW rainforest in July between climbs, something I can't say of the Nallo. The vestibule design is great. I'll typically use the smaller one for packs and partially dig out the larger one for cooking in and/or gearing up, but they're also really nice for getting up to pee without jostling your tentmate too much. Overall this tent is an incredible value and hard to over-recommend. For lower-48 winter expeditions it's pretty tough to beat. Photo: the old version of this tent on the north side of Mt Adams.
