Black Diamond Oasis Tent:
Voted Top Ultralight 3-Person tent- Backpacker Magazine's Gear of the Year Awards 2009
The lightest, strongest double-wall tents Black Diamond makes, the two-person Mirage and three-person Oasis are the optimal shelter for gram-counting backpackers and climbers. The Mirage's integrated vestibule is designed with a unique side angle, thereby keeping gear nearby and accessible but clear of the doorway. These freestanding, three-season tents employ fast-pitch hubs and variable-diameter DAC Featherlite® poles to ensure a simple, speedy setup and, belying their feather weight, unrivaled rigidity in high-wind situations. Built with a 360-degree-view mesh upper and a nylon ripstop lower perimeter for privacy, the Mirage and Oasis have excellent ventilation without feeling too open to the prying eyes of others. For major weight savings the tents can be set up with only the fly and optional ground cloth.
