Lightweight Luxe

This classic two-door, two-man, two-vestibule backpacking tent has been rebuilt with lighter fabrics to weigh in at less than most single-door ultralights. The Skyledge 2.1 shaves ounces by eliminating the tent's corners; instead, nylon webbing connects the body to the tent poles. The 20-denier fly fabric needs to be babied, but the tent was still taut and sturdy enough to withstand 50-mph gusts on the Oregon coast. The secret is a smart design that uses low-stretch fabric panels along the tent's frame to strengthen the overall structure. Our only minor gripe: small doors. 3.6 lbs;
Livability: 3.8
Sturdiness: 4.2
