Mountain Shelter LT Tarp
Mountainsmith makes a number of multi-person tents, but the Mountain Shelter LT Tarp is by far its lightest two-person shelter. Spartan by almost all standards, this tent is comprised of only a single door, it utilizes a single-wall design, and there's no floor. At just two pounds, the Mountain Shelter is three pounds lighter than its big brother the Morrison, and this tarp pitches without poles. Just slide a pair of trekking poles in under the tarp, pitch the corners, tension the guylines, and you're good to go (or use the two top points to connect to tree branches). This is an excellent minimalist option for backpackers looking to save weight and pack space without giving up vital protection from the weather.
- Two-person design utilizes a single door and sets up using two standard trekking poles (trekking poles not included)
- Sil-nylon material is ultralight and waterproof so you won't get wet at night
- Interior height measures four feet and six inches at the peak, giving you enough room to move around inside without feeling cramped
- Back window doubles as ventilation to encourage cross-flow of air beneath the tarp
- Reflective guylines make it easy to locate your tent at night
- Tensionlock cord adjustments allow you to quickly tighten or slacken your guy lines and eliminate the need to tie an adjustment knot
- Two top guyout points allow you to anchor this tent using lines to a tree branch overhead instead of relying on hiking poles underneath and inside
- Reinforced v-stakes allow you to securely pitch your tent in a variety of terrain
- Stuff sack includes setup instruction printed on the inside
- Item #MOU0231
