Hyperlite Mountain Gear's UltaMid 4 Insert with DCF11 Floor shields you from the creepy insects who want to join you on ultralight backpacking trips. Weighing a little over a pound, the compact UltaMid takes up little space in your pack, and you'll barely notice its weight on steep ascents. No-see-um mesh allows plenty of airflow for summers in the alpine or shoulder seasons in the desert, and it makes sure you don't wake up with a snake on your face. The Dyneema bathtub floor is surprisingly durable for how light the tent weighs, and it's very resilient against wet and rocky ground. There's a vertical two-way zipper that opens one of the walls completely. Hyperlite designed this mesh bivy to fit inside the UltaMid for buggy backpacking trips, and it requires one trekking pole (not included) for a proper setup. It can also be set up without a tarp when the skies are clear.
We designed our four-wall UltaMid 4 Insert with no-see-um mesh for passionate multi-sport adventurers who want to keep the bugs at bay and their ultralight, high-tech gear totally dry. The 100% waterproof DCF11 bathtub floor provides significant protection from storms, and morning condensation is minimized by the design; our inserts are smaller than the perimeter of the UltaMid, so the netting never touches the walls. Stay dry (and subsequently warm) and increase your overall enjoyment of the outdoors.
