The Easton Mountain Kilo Tent is what’s known as a non or partially freestanding tent. That’s what is real interesting about this Easton Mountain Kilo Tent. A non or partially freestanding tent like this Easton Mountain Kilo Tent relies on the tension from the corner stakes or the guy lines to give them stability and structure. You save quite a bit of weight due to the lack of some structure poles, the tradeoff being that there is sometimes more difficulty in setting up on surfaces like bedrock. There are some poles, thin carbon fiber ones that are very strong and almost 60% lighter than comparable aluminum ones. With that being said, The Easton Mountain Kilo Tent is a partially freestanding two persons double walled tent that weighs an incredible 2 1/4 pounds or so. A 3 season waterproof tent with taped seams and a bathtub floor.
The body of the Easton Mountain Kilo Tent is composed of no see um mesh, great for ventilation and star watching. There is a full coverage fly which attaches with Velcro to the frame, and it is made of coated rip stop nylon that will ensure you of being dry under any condition. One window and one door. A roughly 5 1/2 foot vestibule at the front will let you store your gear out of the way. Set up is quick an easy as it is color coded for you.
