ALPS Mountaineering Chaos 2 Tent: 2-Person 3-Season -

If you want to stay dry on your next trip and avoid the hassle of faulty zippers, we have the tents for you! The Alps Mountaineering Chaos is a one continuous pole design, free standing tent that is enhanced with 2 doors for easy entry and 2 vestibules for gear storage and extra weather protection. Extra large #8 zippers make opening and closing the doors and vestibules a breeze. The Chaos has 7000 series aluminum poles that are strong and lightweight. Assembly is really easy with the tent clips that just snap in place over the poles. The poles are all shock corded together as one continuous system. With a factory sealed fly and floor seams, you're sure to stay dry in rainy weather. The polyester fly and floor are urethane coated, factory sealed seams for maximum weatherproofness. The fly buckles to the tent, offering a much more secure attachment when compared to elastic cord. The mesh roof vents increase ventilation and improves star gazing. All these combined features, make the Chaos a great choice for any backpacking trip.

ALPS Mountaineering Chaos 2 Tent: 2-Person 3-Season Reviews:


This tent has done well by me on the dozen or so times I've used it backpacking. Its too heavy to use solo and on the heavy side for two people compared to expensive lightweight options. However its VERY spacious compared to those same lightweight options; great if you're tall or want to stash your gear in your tent. The double vestibule rocks and the vents on the vestibules keep air circulating. The gear loft and multiple pockets stash a ton of gear. Used in winter and it did alright in 15 degrees. Besides the weight I can't complain, the extra ounces are even worth it for the durability and low price. Easy to setup and pack away. Awesome for car camping solo too.

Perfect size for me and the hubby (67", 145lbs and 71", 170lbs) . Took it out for the first time this weekend. Had some good rain and very breezy, but everything stayed in-place and dry and we didn't even guide-line it. We even had our dog in the tent with us (room for her at our feet) and sustained no damage to the tent at all. The vestibules are good sized; had both 60L packs (with rain covers) in one and they stayed dry. I didn't hear him complain out packing or carrying it, so couldn't have been too bad. :)

I've had the similar Chaos 3 tent for two seasons and have used it for backpacking in many different settings: heat, cold, rain, even a brief but violent hailstorm. This tent is easy to set up, is very sturdy, has solid zippers, isn't too heavy, keeps moisture and bugs out, and has plenty of room for two people, and gear. Even played Scrabble in it once! I doubt if you could get a better tent for this kind of money.
