A backpacker's delight.
As its name suggests, the Brooks-Range Tension 40 Tent: 3-Person 3-Season offers 40-square feet of glorious space for playing cards, sleeping, or escaping an unexpected squall. And while the Tension 40 is not freestanding, the two-door convenience and 3-pound construction make it a backpacker's delight. So whether you're tackling the Appalachian Trail or the PCT with a few friends (bipedal or furry four-legged ones), the Tension 40 offers just-enough space, without breaking your back.
More specifically, the Tension boasts a minimalist design and features an internal system of shock cords (which further explains the name "Tension") that when combined with the three included poles (one carbon for structure, and two cross poles for level headroom) ultimately offers optimal stability and structure. Additionally, the Tension is constructed with a lightweight, yet weather-resistant ripstop material that fends off unexpected precipitation, while the weather-resistant rain fly boasts similar protection so you aren't left out in the rain or the cold. And because of the generously sized tent fly, the two vestibules at either side easily accommodate necessities. Not to mention, the reinforced guy points ensure your tent fly doesn't become one with the wind should that slight breeze transform into gale force winds.
