Ultralight backpackers, cycle tourists, and sea-kayakers will appreciate the Specialist™ shelters: the interior space and comfort of a tent with a lower overall weight and more compact size than many bivis.
Weighing just 625 grams for the Solo, the Specialists™ are the lightest fully enclosable shelters in their class. Each Specialist™ comes with a set of 2 poles and 6 pegs made out of 7075 alloy for the best strength to weight ratio. They can also be erected with a pair of trekking poles and natural anchors making it perfect for gram saving enthusiasts, achieving a minimum packed weight of 445 grams for the Solo.
For the shell, STS has used Pertex® Endurance, a 20 denier ultra lightweight waterproof breathable nylon fabric in conjunction with a 15 denier waterproof nylon for the walls, vestibules and the floor. Seam sealed throughout, the Specialists™ offer superior waterproof properties while also maintaining impressive breathability to manage condensation effectively. The ultra-fine mesh panel doors keep insects away and allow for maximum ventilation. Optional lightweight Tyvek™ ground sheets are also available for added floor protection.
