A favourite among fast-and-light outdoor enthusiasts, the Sierra Designs High Side 2 tent delivers an ultralight shelter with an impressive weight of just 1.5kg and 12" pole sections that fit between handlebars making it perfect for backpacking and bikepacking trips.
The High Side is crafted for fast-moving treks without compromising on performance. The non-freestanding tunnel design is fast to pitch with pre-bent DAC Featherlite aluminium poles offering a generous peak height and 'high-side' on the door side of the tent for ease of entry and comfort.
On the inside, there's room enough for 2 people with single door access and a vestibule for added storage. A secondary vestibule zip lets you raise the door-side fly for use as an awning panel. This can be propped up with trekking/tarp poles (sold separately) to give you a sheltered space for food prep and sunshade.
A 20D nylon ripstop fly keeps the pack weight low with a waterproof silicone/PeU treatment to 1200mm hydrostatic head while a 15D nylon No-See-Um mesh canopy keeps out bugs and offers ample ventilation. A bucket floor features a 30D nylon ripstop.
The innovative 'burrito' style storage pack makes it quick and easy to pack away while an additional footprint (sold separately) boosts ground protection.
The High Side 2 tent gives you a proven design with a trail-friendly pack weight that's simple to pitch with a dependable construction for 3-season trekking and cycle tours. A fantastic tent for solo adventurers wanting extra room on the trail with only a minor weight penalty.
