Ultralight but Sturdy
A three-pound tent with two doors and two vestibules—there’s got to be a catch, right? Not exactly. The Rev 2 is impressively spacious for a two-man (42 square feet) and quick to set up. Because the canopy and the rain fly are clipped together, we easily pitched it in less than 30 seconds and never had to expose the mesh canopy to rain during wet setups. Yes, the siliconized nylon is tissue-thin and the carbon poles are downright anorexic—handle both with care—but it’s burlier than you’d think: The Rev easily withstood snow, rain, and 30-mph gusts in Washington’s Enchantment Basin. Available with aluminum poles for $350. 3.4 lbs; bigskyinternational.com
