Designed by Dick Jackson, one of the most accomplished mountain guides in the US, the Rocket Tent brings a minimalist mind-set to winter tents. That mind-set starts with the poles: why carry tent poles when ski poles and an avalanche probe are already along? The Rocket uses those items as poles to pull off the astonishing weight of one pound six ounces! Additionally, the Rocket uses incredibly strong and lightweight CT³ fabric developed by Cubic Tech, its aerodynamic shape and its guyout system to make this tent rock solid in the worst conditions. It's all you need and not one gram more.

1 door, 1 vestibule, 2-person tent
3 zippered vents
Crazy-strong and light CT³b fabric
Sidewall tie-through holes for staying anchored while sleeping
