Extreme 2-Person
Extended season 2-person tent
The Extreme is a free standing aluminum pole tent, with a configuration that is extremely strong and sturdy. The 3-pole design gives you more "framework" to combat Mother Nature when she decides to send you a little stronger storm than normal. Assembly is easy with pole clips that quickly snap over the tent poles. The polyester fly and floor are urethane coated, with factory sealed seams for maximum weatherproofness. A door on each side of the tent makes getting in and out of the tent easy. You also get two large vestibules that you can use for extra gear storage. The vestibules also serve as automatic guy-out points when the weather gets a little nasty. The fly buckles to the tent, offering a much more secure attachment when compared to elastic cord. Extra large #8 zippers on the doors and vestibules add to the durability. Mesh roof vents increase ventilation and improve star gazing.

I have this tent now three seasons . This past summer up in Georgian Bay kayak camping we picked a camp site late so not a great location it was all exposed. The weather turned really WINDY. Other tents collapsed. The wind by my guess was in the 40 with 50 mph gusts. it was EXTREME.. But my tent held . It was hard to get the tent fly to hold down as its all rock so used rocks to both hold the tent in place and rocks to hold fly. Needed bigger rocks which I couldn't find. So fly was tough to get to stay in place. The fly is a little to big in my opinion. It droops at the doors. Fix that and its perfect. If you want a tent that can survive extreme wind this is it.

Great Tent!

I’ve had the Extreme 2 for 6 seasons. It’s been solid all these years; I used it one time in sub-freezing weather, and it was cold. This is, after all a three season + tent, but not a true winter tent so you can use it on the ‘shoulder’ seasons, but not the deep freeze.

The tent goes up easily (barely looked at the instructions), and that’s a plus when it’s raining! It’s been watertight all these years, but I’ve gotten some water on the floor when it was really pouring, but not a lot. The only drawback for me is the weight: over 7lbs for this two person tent. It works for me though!
