ALPS Mountaineering Aries 2-Person
Lightweight 2-person tent with full-coverage fly
The Aries is a great backpacking tent to take when you need a tent that is lightweight, reliable, and will hold up in the elements. Its unique pole system allows for ample internal room with nearly straight walls on each side. There is also sufficient headroom, thanks to the spreader bar above the doors. Whether you need the 2-person or 3-person design, each comes with 2 doors so you're not crawling over anyone to get out. With the mostly mesh walls, air will easily flow in and out of the tent when the fly isn't required. When conditions are more extreme, the full coverage fly and two vestibules will keep you and your gear protected and dry.

Complete footprint is usable!

Able to us the floor all the way to each edge! This is great as most tents slope inward so that you must stay 2"-3" away from all the sides unless you want to get soaked from rain or dew overnight. This tent allows us to fully utilize the floor. As Scouts, we have put this tent through the paces camping one to two weekends out of each month and full weeks over the summer. Packs well and quick to setup and take down.
