Mesh Tent 1
$210

Open air sleeping on a summer backpacking trip is a joy – except for the bugs. Our new Mesh Tent 1 offers breezy, versatile, very lightweight protection against mosquitoes, no-see-ums, and other bugs for those who prefer the minimalist approach. The Mesh Tent 1 is a classic ridge-tent design, so all you need to pitch it are ridge line supports and a little imagination: Tie the supports to trees, or use trekking poles. Paddles will work, as will fallen tree branches.

Its sewn-in floor keeps both ground moisture and crawling animals out, and we build the Mesh Tent 1 with our lightest weight mesh. Unlike many mesh fabrics, this one is woven rather than knitted, so has a very fine mesh structure, is softer to the touch while still offering excellent durability, and is remarkably light.

We designed the Mesh Tent 1 specifically to work perfectly with our Tarp 5, and the two together make an outstanding – and very light, just 730 g/1 lb 10 oz – choice for those looking to take the most minimal warm-weather shelter solution.

Y-Pegs

Y-Peg

Y-Peg

$45

Our Y-Peg is exceptionally strong yet quite lightweight, and its "Y" profile gives both excellent penetration in hard ground and plenty of surface area for reliable hold in softer conditions. Both because of its shape and its durable, hardened aluminum body, the sturdy Y-Peg can be hammered into hard ground. Its bright, gold anodized color makes it easy to see, and an attached string loop provides for easy removal. • 18 cm/7.1" • 16 g/0.6 oz • Set of 10 pegs •

V-Pegs

V-Peg

V-Peg

$30

Very light yet very strong, our V-Peg is made from hardened aluminum, and it has specifically engineered thick yet light spine and sides to prevent bending. Its "V" cross section provides a fine balance of penetration in hard ground and holding capability in looser soil. Anodized a highly visible gold, the V-peg also has an integrated string loop for easy removal from the ground. • 16 cm/6.3" • 11 g/0.4 oz • Set of 10 pegs •

Y-Peg ULs

Y-Peg UL

Y-Peg UL

$40

Our lightest peg, the new, hardened aluminum Y-Peg UL has a “Y” cross-section similar to our Y-Peg, but in a smaller (and lighter) package. While not quite as robust as the larger Y-Peg, it offers a great balance of hard ground penetration and soft ground holding power. Its gold anodizing makes it highly visible, and the attached string loop makes it easier to pull it from the ground. • 15 cm/5.9" • 9.6 g/0.34 oz • Set of 10 pegs •

Guy Line and Line Runners

Our proprietary 2 & 3 mm red and white guy line cord is strong, light and easy to see. Its interwrap construction interweaves super strong Vectran cord longitudinally with polyester, producing a cord with no sheath to slip, near zero stretch, minimal water absorption, an easy-to-handle soft feel, high UV resistance, and a stout 60 kg (132 lb) breaking strength for the 2 mm and 80 kg (176 lb) for the 3 mm. • 2mm/3 mm x 25 m (82 ft) • 53 g (1.9 oz)/133 g (4.7 oz) •

These unique and reliable line runners come with every tent, but they can also be purchased separately. They lock securely on a range of different line dimensions and are easy to adjust, even while wearing mittens. • 2 and 3 mm sizes (fits our 2 & 3 mm guy line, respectively) • Set of 10 •

3 mm guy line and line runners come standard with all tents except for our Yellow Label tents which come with 2 mm guy line and line runners.
