The Hoop Dreams 4 is a member of Mountain Hardwear's Trussring family of tents, which are an entirely new type of shelter in the backpacking realm. With a Trussring tent, the fabric of the tent is also the structure. The round walls deflect wind (see: Central Asian yurts) and the teepee-like shape provides an amount of spaciousness and headroom not normally found in tents this light. There's room for four people to shelter inside, although it's a bit of a squeeze to get them all lying side-by-side for the night. If you can find something to hang the apex of the tent from, it can be set up without the center pole to reduce weight even further.
- Patented Trussring™ support system greatly increases internal volume at head level and adds structural strength
