Ultralight and ultra-protective.
Hyperlite Mountain Gear's UltaMid 4 is a four-season shelter suitable for summer alpine climbs and winter ski tours. Weighing in a little over a pound, this compact shelter packs small and is so light in your pack that you might not believe it's even there. Its Dyneema fabric is surprisingly resilient against rain, snow, and abrasion. A waterproof two-way zipper and fully taped seams enhance protection against torrential downpours to keep you and your gear comfortably dry.
Dual peak vents provide airflow in warmer weather, and you can open or close them for versatile coverage. There are center panel tie-outs for staking the tent down, and a middle tie-out to hang the shelter from a tree if you don't have poles, skis, or a long stick to set up inside the tent. Hyperlite designed this shelter to fit an UltaMid 4 Mesh Insert or UltaMid Mesh Insert with DCF Floor for extra shelter from the elements.

- Q & A
50 mph winds, kinda loud...
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
The thing weighs almost nothing, and we pitched it at the top of Anderson Peak in Tahoe, around 8.5k. Weather forecast was for calm winds but we ended up with 50 mph winds. The tent is really noisy in those conditions, and you will want to guy it out. Also bring earplugs if you want to sleep better.
Also tent is very translucent, we had a full moon and it was like someone left the light on inside the tent.
Bombproof, and reasonably easy to set up.
