Summary: Spectacular tent. I recently bought the Vapor Light 2, hoping for a lightweight, tough tent. This delivered. I used it in the Linville Gorge in western mountains of North Carolina. The hike to our destination was about 5 miles and the only way I remembered The Vapor was on my pack was when my friend reminded me...it's that light. Setting the Vapor Light 2 up is so easy a caveman could do it...literally.

Summary: Title: vacuumed packed Subject: My experience of using a Vapor Light tent on Isla Navarino in Terra del feugo (Jan., 2011). This trail only gets about 100 hikers a year. Super remote and raw. So the flight out to Isla Naravino was fantastic and soon as we landed we took a taxi to the trail head and started hiking the Deintes Circuit. After climbing about 500m (1600 ft) we were above treeline and it started snowing/sleeting with a 30mph wind.
Summary: First off.... context. I was looking to replace my old Walrus hoop tent that is similar in design to the Clip Flashlight. It was a single person shelter and I've hiked thousands of miles with that tent, half the AT, Alaska, Washington, California, 500 mi of the PCT, Georgia, North Carolina, etc.. etc.. That tent has been everywhere with me and it was a sad day when I put it down.
