If you're a person, forget bu...rrows and sleep in the Mountain Hardwear Optic 3. 5 3-Person 3-Season Tent, which has full mesh walls and a rollback fly that gives you a 180-degree view. It's made for three people, but, as the name suggests, it can easily hold 3. 5 (a half-person being a dog or child), and it has tons of headroom to go with the airy design. Double doors are set up on adjacent walls, corresponding with the rollback fly, to make getting in and out simple, and there are also two vestibules to keep your gear dry in the rain. For a tent with so much space, the Optic is remarkably easy to set up, with two corner-to-corner poles and one short ceiling pole, along with color-coded corner tabs and clips that make pitching your tent as easy can be. The DAC Pressfit poles themselves are made of lightweight aluminum. The polyester floor and nylon body are both decked out with heavy-duty waterproof polyurethane coatings, and are tightly woven to resist tearing, while the interior pockets hold books, headlamps, and glasses to help the whole gang stay organized. Even with all this swag, the superlight Optic weighs less than 6. 5 pounds, making it a great option for all but the lightest and fastest 3-season backpacking trips. Read More

The Mountain Hardwear Mountain Goat 20F sleeping bag is designed to grow with the young backpacker. Adjustable footbox contracts a...nd expands to grow with kids. Soft, compressible Thermic MX? fill is engineered to provide 3-dimensional, springlike loft for superior warmth and minimal weight. Made from a combination of hollow and solid staple fibers, the fill has excellent loft retention, and is durable, soft and compressible. Internal drawcord adjuster system allows you to shorten or lengthen the footbox area of bag as child grows. Drawcords can be adjusted from the outside, bottom of bag; small rip-and-stick pocket stores the drawcords and toggles. With a slightly wide cut to give you extra room to move inside the bag, the Comfort mummy cut efficiently maximizes warmth without constriction. Cozy ripstop nylon shell with a Durable Water Repellent finish sheds water; polyester taffeta lining breathes for comfort and feels great against skin. Insulation is laid in a wave shape, enhancing loft and increasing thermal efficiency; offset welds increase stability and loft. Insulated draft tube (backing the 2-way, 3/4-length zipper) and insulated zipper gusset seal in heat. 2-way zipper with locking slider is backed by wide, antisnag binding tape. Face gasket and ergonomic draft collar seal out cold air. Comfort footbox is shaped to allow feet to rest naturally; shape preserves loft and allows insulation to drape close to feet for more warmth. Chest pocket with rip-and-stick closure is great for stowing small necessities such as your watch or lip balm, alleviating middle-of-the-night fumbling. Comes with nylon compression stuff sack.

Tired of feeling like you're trapped in a windowless basement hotel room when you're sleeping in the tent? The Mountain Hardwear O...ptic 2. 5 2-Person 3-Season Tent is more beach cabana than stuffy cave, with full mesh walls and a fly that rolls back to give you total ventilation and a 180-degree view. As the name suggests, it's designed to sleep 2. 5 people, meaning it can hold all the kids in one of those perfectly typical suburban families the census tells us about, or two adults and a dog or child. You could probably even make it work for three grown-ups, if you really liked each other and wanted to save weight. There's tons of headroom, toofour whole feet. To correspond with the mega-opening of the fly, the Optic has two adjacent doors with matching vestibules to make getting in, out, and keeping gear dry no big deal. It's easy to pitch, too, with lightweight DAC Pressfit aluminum poles and color-coded tabs on the fly and body so there's no confusion. Just because it's mesh doesn't mean it'll get soggy if the clouds open up, eitherthe fly's made of a tightly-woven polyester taffeta that's treated with polyurethane, and the floor's constructed of rugged nylon, with a PU layer that's even more burly than what's on the fly. The Optic packs up light, too, with a superlight weight of under six pounds, but still has plenty of gear pockets and an optional gear loft to hold all your stuff (it holds things well, too).

Legendary mountaineer Ed Viesturs teamed up with Mountain Hardwear to create the EV 2 Tent, which has become an staple for serious... alpine adventurers looking for a shelter that offers the ideal balance of strength, weight, and size. While not as light as the almost unbelievably featherweight Direkt 2, the EV has a good bit more space, and still weighs just over 4. 5lbs, no more than a standard 3-season double-walled backpacking tent. The EV, however, is a single-walled monster, designed to stand up to the worst snow, wind, and alpine storms Mother Nature dares to throw at you. It makes use of a three-pole Evolution Tension Arch design to ensure the ideal balance of strength and weight, and features an integrated vestibule that lets you keep your gear dry without cramping living space--every inch becomes precious when you've been trapped in a tent for six days. Built with rugged and waterproof nylon fabrics, the EV also has some seriously considerate touches, like several SVX windows to let some light into your dark, dank, cave, and five welded, adjustable vents to help your surprisingly well-lit cave become a little less dank. There's even a watertight port in the floor that lets you drain accumulated water from frost and snow so you don't feel like you're sleeping on a punctured waterbed, though if you feel like hauling one up to 14,000ft, then more power to you.

Every base camp out there has at least one Mountain Hardwear Space Station Tent for communication centers, dining halls, hospitals..., and sleeping fifteen alpinists of course. Built out of a burly nylon taffeta with multiple PU and silicon coatings for waterproof protection, the highly durable Space Station was designed specifically for high altitude and extended alpine expeditions. Fifteen industry-leading Paleria DAC Pressfit poles make sure this tent doesn't bend against wind and storms, and an adjustable partial coverage rain fly works with the perimeter snow flaps to keep the inside dry and comfortable. The Space Station also features SVX windows so everyone can check the conditions without opening one of the three doors. A zippered top thru-vent lets out steam, and ten adjustable vents bring a sufficient amount of airflow in. An internal perimeter skirt offers off-ground space, and internal pockets help you organize all your personal gear. Bartacks color-coded webbing at each stake-out point help with set-up, and a rugged duffel bag provides easy transportation. Read More

When the weather gods start dropping bombs on your basecamp, 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 give up weatherproofing or durability to get there. It pitches using four DAC Featherlite aluminum poles (a fifth supports the vestibule for extra storage space), and boasts fully-taped seams on the fly and floor to keep the elements at arm's length, or even further away. All the fabrics are tightly-woven, high-denier nylon, and feature either DWR treatments, in the case of the body, or polyurethane and silicone coatings (floor and fly) that have been tested in a rain room to ensure they'll stay watertight through the burliest mountain storms. You might be stuck inside for a while, but at least you'll have a small window to look out of (not that there'll be much to see), and two mesh doors that'll keep some air moving through so you don't go any crazier than you have to. If the weather gets nice, you can even set up the Trango with the Pitchlight option, which uses just the fly and footprint (sold separately) to provide a shelter that weights under 6. 5 pounds. No matter how you choose to pitch, the vestibule has snow flaps that hug the ground to seal out wind and spindrift, fully-welded guy-out points and zipper flaps, and waterproof zippers for extra weather protection.

From base camp to storm-battered ridges, the Mountain Hardwear Trango 3 Tent shelters the world's best alpinists and small expedit...ion teams. It's been around for nigh on 20 years, so you have to assume there's something pretty rad about it. Could it be the burly four-pole design (plus one vestibule pole) that makes it so appealing? Maybe. If it's not that, perhaps it's DAC Featherlight NSL aluminum poles or the waterproof PU- and silicone-coated nylon fabrics that are tough enough to stand up to a rampaging rhinoceros, as well as brutal mountain wind and snow, all while weighing just over ten pounds. Truthfully, it's probably a combination of all these things, plus a whole lot more. All the seams on the fly and floor are fully taped for superior waterproofing, and the DirectConnect guy-out points, pole clips, and zipper flaps are fully welded for extreme durability in extreme conditions. Because they could, Mountain Hardwear designed the Trango with double mesh doors for ventilation and matching vestibules to stand up to storms, and added snow flaps on the bottom of the fly to keep out whirling winds and spindrift. All the zippers are watertight as well, the fly has a window in it, and there are interior pockets to hold all your small waiting-out-the-storm gear like headlamps, books, and cards. You can even pick up the footprint (sold separately) and pitch the Trango as a lightweight summer shelter using just the fly. No wonder it's been just about everywhere it's possible to go. Read More

If you're bummed out by having to chose between the airflow of a double-wall tent and the light weight of a single-wall design, qu...it being blue. The Tangent 2 Two-Person Four-Season Tent from Mountain Hardwear pitches itself right in the middle of traditional double-walls and alpine-style single-walls, combining the breathability and dryness of a double-wall tent with the weight savings of a single-wall shelter to create an all-weather, all-season home for mountaineers, skiers, and alpinists. It's the lightest double-walled four-season tent that Mountain Hardwear makes, weighing in at superlight 5. 5 pounds, but is designed to stand up the gnarliest blizzards and worst winds that the mountains can throw at you, with three DAC Pressfit aluminum poles and burly nylon ripstop fabrics. The coolest features on the Tangent are the Trident Corners. As you might have guessed, each corner uses a three-point anchor system (two poles, and a nylon clip that flexes with the wind), distributing the wind force to 12 points instead of four and shortening the effective length of the poles, making a shelter that's far stronger than traditional single-anchor tents. The Trident Corners also make the Tangent better at bearing heavy snow loads with only two corner-to-corner poles and one small overhead crosspiece. Every guy out uses burly DirectConnect points, and all the corners and anchors are welded for extreme durability. There are mesh vents on the roof and doors, all the seams are taped, and the Tangent's been tested in a rain room to ensure that it's dry as an Arizona tumbleweed in September. If there's a more versatile, burly, double-walled four-season tent out there, we haven't seen it yet. Read More

If compact and strong brings up images of one of those half-pint 1880s bodybuilders in a silly bathing costume, that's totally coo...l, but don't forget that those words also apply to other, more rugged and radical things like Mountain Hardwear's EV 3 Three-Person Four-Season Tent. You could toss superlight into the mix as well, seeing as the EV weighs under 6. 5 pounds, virtually the same as some of Mountain Hardwear's all-mesh 3-season tents. Unlike those glorified mosquito nets, the EV is built to endure the raging winds and hammering snow you encounter on high-alpine expeditions and winter camping trips, with four DAC Featherlite NSL aluminum poles that stabilize your shelter without being unnecessarily heavy. In the same vein, the integrated vestibule cuts down on material while increasing strength and giving you enough room to store gear and de-boot without trampling your partners and tracking snow all over your living space. If you do get some snow inside (and let's be real, you will), the EV has you covered with a watertight drainage port in the floor so you don't have to sleep in a puddle. You can let some sunshine and fresh air into your life, too, courtesy of several SVX windows and four welded, adjustable mesh vents that'll keep you from feeling too claustrophobic on your fifth day of being stuck inside. The zippers are welded, their pulls are reflective, and the corner webbing is color-coded to make setup as easy as can be, even if the wind's howling. Good luck finding a body builder than can do all that. Read More
