User Review: Mountain Hardwear Helion 2
Design: three season ultralight
Ease of Setup: kind of a pain with the short pole sections
Weight: 3#14oz (a few more ozs than they say0
Price Paid: $209
I got this tent for half price, still think I paid $50 too much. The floor is really cheesy, would have to get a footprint, that is not available, and if it were, it would put the tent around 4 1/2 pounds, and there are much better tents, in this range for much less money.
Really dissapointed in Mountain Hardwear. GoLite and Big Agnes are much better. Like the others said, it is tiny, I am 6' even, and am touching my feet (too small to go at an angle). The third pole design kinda blows also, it takes that much longer to set it up, also it is not well ventilated. I set it up next to two other tents I have, one a four season, and it was really hot inside, the other two were not that bad, (it was 75 out).
So if you really want to save weight, get a tarp and floor combo, and a bug screen. I can get these under 3#, So I see now why this tent is discounted so much.
