Wanderlust Nomad 2-4-2 single wall sil-nylon 2-person tent. Weight 1 lb. 15 oz. (no pole weight, as the tent uses 2 trekking poles, one for center, one for front awning), Floor space: 9x5feet. Single door. Awnings protect large noseeum panels on both front and rear for great ventilation. Used infrequently, like new condition., includes tyvek groundcloth, OR stuff sack, 6 aluminum stakes.

Originally $345.00 Yours for $255 with free domestic shipping.

I purchased this two person tent a few years ago. It is a single-wall pyramid with floor, and is supported by two trekking poles (not included), one as a center pole, and one to support the large front awning. The tent material is sil-nylon, which is very light, and the tent weights only 2 lbs. Trekking poles and stakes are additional weight.
A problem with most single wall tents is controlling condensation. The unique design of the Nomad 2-4-2 addresses this by having very large front and rear mesh panels which are always open, allowing flow-thru ventilation even in the worst rainstorm. I live in Oregon, and have tested this in the rain, and the tent is waterproof, and the condensation is negligible. This is a great 3 season tent for two, especially for the ultralight backpacker or PCT couple.
