If you’ve thinking about getting yourself a single-walled tent, I highly recommend that you look at the entire Tarptent product line. I’ve owned a Squall 2 for about 2 years and it’s a classic, suitable for one or two people, that only weighs 34 oz, including a bathtub floor, collapsible rear pole and stuff stack.
The Squall 2 requires just 4 stakes and can be set up with your hiking poles (120 cm) to save weight and improve wind stability. The tent can be ordered with a sewn-in bathtub floor which hangs from no-seeum netting connected to the tents walls, providing excellent side and back ventilation. An additional footprint is not required because the bathtub floor is waterproof.
The front flaps, which form a vestibule, can be rolled up and held in place with little velcro tabs sewn to the tent body. When extended, they from a substantial vestibule for storing gear or to block blowing rain, without significantly impacting airflow.
The Squall 2 has a distinct catenary curve, designed to improve it’s stability in windy conditions. It is 94″ long with a front width of 78″ and rear width of 51 “.
The Squall 2 costs $230 and is an excellent value. To order, contact Tarptent. com
