Dare to go zipperless on your next backpacking adventure with the Big Agnes Fishhook SL 1 Person Tent. The innovative design uses simple clip and loop closures instead of traditional tent zippers to close the door and fly securely so you can sleep peacefully. It is super quick and easy to pitch with plastic clips that attach the tent body to the pole frames. Reflective guylines and webbing on the tent corners make it easy to setup any time you arrive at your campsite. An extra-large entry door and a generous vestibule space allow ample room for gear. Lightweight aluminum J stakes (9) keep your home-away-from-home securely anchored. The poles were created utilizing a completely nontoxic alternative using a series of brushes that mechanically strip the gunk off, leaving them bright and shiny. Seams are fully taped with waterproof, solvent-free polyurethane to keep out leaks and cold drafts, while waterproof coating on the fly and floor give you further weather protection from the ground and rain. The tent body is made from nylon and polyester mesh for optimal breathability, ventilation, and gazing at the night sky.
