Mountain Hardwear EV 2 Tent -
Whether you are tackling Mount Everest or Mount Katahdin, you will cherish the Mountain Hardwear EV 2 Tent like a coveted heirloom. This rugged four-season shelter will hold up year after year, adventure after adventure.
Constructed of tough nylon ripstop, the EV 2 Tent has a narrow design that will snuggle into ledges, while special clips anchor you to the ground or a nearby stump. In addition, the special lightweight pole design increases stability, so even in high winds, the tent stays put. The interior of this expedition tent features a single vestibule for boots and gear, four adjustable mesh vents for ventilation and two SVX windows that allow you to check the weather without getting rain in your face. The EV 2 even has a snow port to get rid of snow accumulation and reflector zipper pulls so you can find the door easily at night.
Maybe you are a newcomer to mountaineering or maybe you are more experience climber who has set some new goals. Either way, bigger goals mean better equipment and better equipment means the Mountain Hardwear EV 2. You will not regret it.

SPECIFICATIONS of the Mountain Hardwear Ev 2 Person Tent.
Legendary mountaineer Ed Viesturs teamed up with Mountain Hardwear to create the EV 2 Tent, your four-season home away from home in the high mountains. The tent's single-wall design won't weigh you down as you trudge through thin, oxygen-poor air, while its innovative design and advanced materials mean it can stand up to whatever weather blows in after you hunker down for the night.

Mountain Hardwear EV 2 Tent Reviews:


I love Mountain Hardwear products. That being said, I also research the shit out things I am going to buy. This tent has some minuses, no arguing that. But for its purpose and what it is intended for it kicks ass. I needed a small light tent for sometimes just myself and when having one other person. There are a lot of cheaper options and there are more expensive options out there as well.
I believe the newest version is even better than the old. And it is why I didn't get one of the older models you see being discounted out there. If you are going to have your gear for a few seasons spend a little more and get the improvements Mtn Hardwear has made.
No, it's not a double wall tent and if you want all the bonuses of a double wall tent then get a double wall tent. Single wall tents are problematic with issues single wall tents have.
So if you are looking for a camping tent or a tent not intended to be used on the side of a snow covered mountain at high elevation, this is most likely not the tent for you. Not that you can't bitch and moan about how bad it is when you use it in conditions it wasn't intended for.

Versatile, bullet proof, light and extremely fast to set up, not much else I look for in a tent. The small footprint allows it to fit basically anywhere, the tradeoff is that you can't fit a hottub inside. The ventilation is good but not great (an accomplishment considering it's a single wall). The tent poles are strong enough to lance a charging grizzly yet light enough javeline a bald eagle but neither are recommended.
Do use this tent to kick the crap out of 14ers all year long. Do not use this tent mid-August in Moab or any other desert unless you are trying to melt something.
