Brooks-Range is no longer in business, and the Rocket Tent A2 has been discontinued. If you're looking for something new, check out the best four-season tents for 2021.
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.
