When it comes to lighter, more durable gear for the trail, nothing beats Dyneema, a future textile we’ve raved about before

And no one knows Dyneema better than Hyperlite. The brand’s new the 100% waterproof UltaMid 2 Tent weighs just over a pound and is designed to withstand “even the worst weather conditions.”

Made in America, the two-person tent features seam-sealed construction, four center panel tie-outs, eight reinforced perimeter tie-outs, a waterproof two-way zipper and a storage sack.

“We considered minimalist alpine climbing missions, long distance backpacking trips and remote backcountry adventures when we developed this tent,” according to Hyperlite. “Naked, flawless functionality meets rugged durability in the ultimate, ultra-tough pyramid tent.”

Priced at $715, the UltaMid 2’s stake kit is sold separately. We’d certainly suggest getting one. To learn more about Hyperlite, check out the video below.
