When weight matters, the Mountain Hardwear Direkt 2 Person Tent delivers expedition quality in a sub-three pound package. Literally the lightest two-person mountaineering tent Mountain Hardwear has ever made, the Direkt 2 is ready for the burliest of fast and light pursuits. The internal pole design means you can set this tent up in a howling storm. Better yet, it (and you) will actually survive the storm, too. The DAC Featherlight™ NSL poles may be light, but they are built to withstand the rigors of true mountaineering. Mountain Hardwear's Evolution Tension Arch™ design gives the Direkt 2 additional stability without adding poles. Basically, the designers took on every aspect of tent construction and, in true fast and light style, reduced the design to the essentials: high quality materials and clean design. The result is a field tested shelter used by the likes of Ueli Steck, arguably one of the world's leading alpinists.
