Small, light and fast adventures deserve ultralight, durable shelters optimized for the task. Hyperlite Mountain Gear considered minimalist solo, two-person alpine climbing, and super-ultra thru-hiking adventures when developing the UltaMid 2 Shelter. It's light enough to satisfy dedicated minimalists, yet tough enough to endure harsh winter camping conditions.
Made with Dyneema Composite Fabrics—the lightest, strongest, and most waterproof outdoor gear fabric available—this pyramid tent withstands the worst weather conditions, keeping passionate adventurers protected from raging windstorms and heavy snowfall. Use it with the UltaMid 2 Insert for added bug protection and to keep you and your equipment totally dry.
It can be pitched on the ground or above it, and dual mesh-lined peak vents allow cooling airflow to pass through during summer adventures. Although Hyperlite Mountain Gear recommends you utilize adjustable trekking or ski poles for set up, the specially-designed cone peak can also accommodate paddles, sticks, or skis, when you're in a pinch.

what a tent!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I think that Hyperlite's reputation is built primarily on the lightweight durability of their dyneema products. The tent weighs one pound, and works pretty well through all four seasons.
Through the warmer months, it is important to bring along stakes to anchor the Mid. Through the winter, however, skis (or ice tools) replace the stakes.
Cooking inside the tent is easy given the ample vertical space, and in comparison to most 2 person tents, the UltraMid offers a lot of space for gear storage.
Hyperlite doesn't waste a lot of tech in terms of construction, and I think the tent's simplicity probably factors heavily in its overall durability. Dyneema is an incredible fiber and the blend that Hyperlite chose for seems super abrasion resistant, as well as packable.
