Took this little tent on its first outing in feb09, liked the ease of set up, rain fly went on quickly and easily, did not use guy lines. plenty of room inside for 2, and the vestibule held my kelty red cloud 6500 quite easily.

I was a little worried because the top is mostly mesh, but about 4:00 am the bottom fell out rained about 4" til dawn, I checked for leaks and there were none, I just rolled back over and slept well.

I would recommend this tent, it is very sturdy, and with the fly it is very nice inside. I don't like that it is made in china but the price is good.

Here's what other sites are saying:

The Mystique 2 Tent is Alps Mountaineering's lightest two-person tent so you and a buddy can revel in easier trips from fall to spring. Alps Mountaineering built this non-freestanding tent's walls out of mesh for ventilation, the fly out of polyester for UV-protection, and the floor out of PU-coated polyester for abrasion- and water-resistance. Two 7000-series aluminum poles provide an ample amount of head space as well as a quick and simple setup, and two doors and two vestibules give you and your fellow backpacker plenty of personal space. Alps Mountaineering also included aluminum stakes, guy lines, and internal mesh storage pockets for your convenience.


CLOSEOUTS . ALPS Mountaineering Mystique 2 tent is a two-person, three-season tent that features two doors and two gear vestibules. This two-pole tent offers excellent protection from the elements in a easy to set-up design. Available Colors: WHITE/BROWN.

The Alps Mountaineering Mystique is a 2 pole, non-freestanding tent and is the most lightweight model in their line. But just because it is lightweight does not mean that they cut any corners or left out any ideal features. The Mystique comes equipped with #8 zippers, factory sealed fly and floor seams, and 2 mesh doors for great ventilation and easy entry and exit. The weatherproof fly provides a vestibule over each door and has a vent that you can keep open or closed. So if weight is an issue and quality is a must, there's no better choice than the Mystique.


The Mystique 2 tent from ALPS Mountaineering has a lightweight 2-pole design that offers good headroom and ventilation. 2 large mesh doors allow ventilation and easy and entry exit; 2 vestibules offer convenient gear storage. Polyester taffeta rainfly resists UV damage and remains taut even when wet. Factory seam-sealed rainfly and floor offer great protection from the elements. Waterproof rainfly features a vent that can be zipped open or closed, depending on weather. Includes stuff sacks, stakes and guyline. Average minimum weight specification is based on tent, rainfly and poles only. Special buy.
