Mesh Tent 1
OPEN AIR SLEEPING on a summer backpacking trip is a joy – except for the bugs. Our new Mesh Tent 1 offers breezy, versatile, very lightweight bug protection for those who prefer the minimalist approach. The Mesh Tent 1 is a classic ridge-tent design, so all you need to pitch it are ridge line supports and a little imagination: Tie the supports to trees, or use trekking poles. Paddles will work, as will fallen tree branches.
Its sewn-in floor keeps both ground moisture and crawling animals out, and we build the Mesh Tent 1 with our lightest weight mesh. Unlike many mesh fabrics, this one is woven rather than knitted, so has a very fine mesh structure, is softer to the touch while still offering excellent durability, and is remarkably light.
We designed the Mesh Tent 1 specifically to work perfectly with our Tarp 5, and the two together make an outstanding choice for those looking to take the most minimal warm-weather shelter solution.
