Mountain Hardwear SkyLedge 2.1
- adaptable to ultra light with only fly and footprint
- quick easy to set up
- two doors/vestibules
- lots of mesh
- could be just a touch longer and or poles that fit with a slightly more curved (taller) dome.
- I find that I touch at both ends and I am 5'11".
Fits two NeoAir pads perfectly
I also use a Big Agnes Lynx Pass 3 footprint as a perfect fit for a ground cover entry area tarpaulin on one side.
Awesome tent for one. Tight and light for two.

Recently used in the snow and was adequate.

For backpacking/hiking this is a great tent.
It runs on the small side for a two person tent, however it is very light and has two vestibules for storage out of the weather (one on each side). It also has doors on both sides which is fantastic for two people. This tent would be fine for a average couple, it would be tight for a couple of guys (in this case I would suggest the Skyledge 3 which a friend has).
There is plenty of room in the vestibules for a pack and boots, I also use a gear loft inside mine to keep my valuables, torch, watch, phone etc at easy reach and off the floor of the tent and out of the way (not really an issue if you only have one person inside).
The majority of the tent body is mesh so it provides good ventilation, I use a phantom 32 sleeping bag and I am a warm sleeper, there is some condensation inside the tent in the morning on a cool night. Compared to the Hammerhead 2 tent (which is also good) this tent is a little easier to set up and a bit lighter.
Most of the time, I use this as a large one man tent. It does fit two people snuggly, but at the end of the day it is a lightweight hiking tent.
I would recommend this tent to someone who would like a compact lightweight hiking tent.

Perfect tent. My wife and I both sleep in it and the double doors are awesome. I carry it in my pack and is easy to set up and use. The canopy gives you 2 areas on both doors to put packs and gear out of the weather.
I also got the footprint with mine. You can set up the canopy and footprint for an extra light outdoor sleeping area. Awesome purchase. I love MH!
