First Look: Lightest Tent Ever?

The Ghost UL 2 tent is Mountain Hardwear’s lightest tent ever—and possibly the lightest performance tent in the world—at just two pounds and two ounces. It has to be hefted to be believed. We were impressed!

This freestanding, two-person design is aimed at fast-moving backcountry travelers who need solid protection from the elements. The Ghost UL features a dry entry vestibule, fully taped fly and guy-clip anchors.

The feather-light weight is achieved by using ultralight materials including DAC poles and a nylon body. The Ghost UL retails for $449.


Also avaialble in a solo design.
