Why We Like The Mountain Hardwear Trango 2 Tent

When rain starts to downpour on our basecamp, we retreat to the Mountain Hardwear Trango 2 Tent and sit out the storm in time-tested alpine style. The Trango's been around since 1995 and, like cheese and wine, has only gotten better as it's gotten older.

Weighing under nine pounds, it's considerably lighter than many basecamp-style tents, but doesn't sacrifice weatherproofing or durability to get there. It pitches using four DAC Featherlite aluminum poles, and boasts fully-taped seams on the fly and floor to keep the elements at bay. All the fabrics are tightly-woven, high-denier nylon, and feature water-resistant coatings to ensure you stay dry through the burliest mountain storms.


  • Four-season tent made for year-round mountaineering expeditions
  • Rain fly features fully taped seams for waterproof protection
  • Canopy has a bathtub-style floor for better weather protection
  • DAC Featherlight poles with direct connection clips for solid feel
  • Mesh windows at roof and both doors for amplified airflow
  • Vestibule can attache to either door for customized coverage
  • Stakes, pocket, guyout line, and tensioners included

9 months = amazing durability, tent!

A bombproof, dry tent! Back a few years, I moved to become a full-time guide. I was still paying a lease in the big city, which meant Id have to live in my tent for 9 months starting in late February. Luckily I had a Trango 2. I never got wet or had a problem with Mtn. snow. This tent is amazing!! I don't know of one better!

High Mountain Home

I read the reviews, studied the specs, deliberated over all the choices. Let me tell you, this sucker is bomb proof. After taking it on some seriously windy and classically foul-weathered mountains, it has stood without a scratch. I have hardly seen the walls bow at 70+mph winds. I’ve spent nights in it with three people and all our gear, attesting to its room and comfortability. Perhaps my favorite feature is the plethora of large pockets, making it excellent for drying gear and storing monstrous amounts of gear. I will add that the headlamp pocket does an excellent job of illuminating the entire tent with one headlamp. While the snow flaps on the front vestibule are excellent in certain conditions, they do make entry and exit from the tent somewhat cumbersome as you can only peek open the zipper doors. This tent’s ability to trap warm air inside is absurdly high, like a giant air bubble keeping everyone cozy. Don’t forget to vent though, lest you end up with condensation, especially on your window for viewing outside conditions. All in all, it’s a great tent and has become a home for me on high mountains.

Killer tent!

I am still using my 1997 trango 2 and it is still bombproof! I look after it well and wash it too. It has hardly any shrinkage after 27yrs and hold back all weather. Takes nasty winds and good snow, my shelter ❤️

Excellent tent!

Definitely worth the purchase, MH doesn’t disappoint when it comes to equipment. bought this for my Aconcagua trip and I used this tent from base camp all the way to camp Colera, will definitely use this on my next mountaineering trips from here on out!

Intuitive setup and bomber construction

Intuitive setup and bomber construction! I bought this for vehicle based winter and cold weather camping. It is made from high quality materials and appears to be robust. I was quickly able to set up the tent without reference to the directions. The poles are color coated and clip in to appropriately sized wire gated plastic clips. In areas where the poles cross, there are larger clips to accommodate both poles. All poles are external, not sleeved, except for the vestibule pole. External poles allow for quick and straightforward setup. I bought the Trango 2 and found it plenty big two people, especially when using the vestibule. It is a palace if you are solo!

Set up/breakdown nightmare

This tent takes way too long to set up and even longer to breakdown. The rediculous amount of mini carabiners used to secure the tent to poles don't work easily. I can't imagine setting this up in cold weather with gloves on.

Just the best tent!

The quality of this tent is unbeatable in my opinion. I camp with my boyfriend quite often, and we wanted a tent that would help shield us from harsh cold climate. When the right clothing and gear is used, this tent provides us with the warmth we need in snowy weather, and cold temperatures in general. We’ll be camping tomorrow in desert cold climate with our dog and I’m confident that it will go great with this tent. We’ve camped in our tent about 10 times before and we have absolutely nothing bad to say about it. the setup is very easy as well. We 100% recommended this tent for a two person duo, especially in colder climates. You won’t be disappointed!

Great tent

I used this tent twice so far. The structure looks solid. Didn’t have the chance to try it during winter yet, but it looks that it will resist any kind of weather. The reasons I’m not giving it 5 stars is because it’s a little too bulky and heavy. It’s not like they didn’t tell me about it on the description, but I had to see it myself to know for sure. Also, it’s not a tent that I can build in two minutes in case of emergency. It takes quite some time to do it (it’s still easy to build, just too many clips and stuff to take care of). Other than that, I love it. It looks even bigger on the inside than it does from outside. And it also has great ventilation.
