Great piece of gear.

At less than half the weight of traditional tents, the Echo II Ultralight Shelter System by Hyperlite Mountain Gear is perfect for two person adventuring, distance hiking, backpacking, climbing, camping, cycling, kayaking or canoeing. This versatile shelter system may also be suitable for solo hikers who prefer a larger sleeping space. The Echo II consists of three modular components including a durable and ultralight cuben fiber tarp, a detachable NANOSEEUM bug mesh tent insert for 100% protection against ground water and insects, and a detachable vestibule for severe weather protection. Using all components together, the Echo II works just like a traditional fully enclosed tent and it sets up in minutes.
