The REI Cirque ASL (All Season Light) 2 tent reflects the classic backpacker layout with side doors and vestibules to maximize livability, access and storage for 2 occupants. Cirque ASL tent also fills the gap between the limited seasonality of ultralight tents and the robustness of 4-season tents. High-strength pole architecture, lightweight materials, fully sealable interior and roomy floor plan combine to create a low-weight, weather-worthy tent. Dual doors and vestibules provide user-friendly entry and exit and personal gear storage. Asymmetrical shape keeps the weight low and allows an efficient use of interior space; plus, it provides nice roominess around the shoulder area. Large, multidiameter DAC Featherlight(R) NSL Combi poles increase interior volume and enhance structural stability. Dual AirLift rainfly vents channel wind to increase tent's strength; fully adjustable, these ceiling vents create cross-flow ventilation that mitigates condensation. Dead End pole sleeves and color coding facilitate a quick setup. Speed-pitching option allows tent and fly to be semi-permanently attached for a quick setup that protects the canopy from precipitation. Cirque can be used in a variety of seasons and climates: inner tent is fully closeable with zippered panels that cover the mesh doors and vents. Hybrid floor combines sealed seams and bathtub curves to create a waterproof, taut floor; tautness enhances door-zipper operation and maximizes volume at end walls. Multiple storage options include corner pockets, roof pockets and hang loops; use door pocket to hold door out of the way or for storage. Shape and position of door zippers allows smooth, 1-handed operation; vestibule's zipper openings align with canopy doors for easy operation, entry and exit. Siliconized 30-denier ripstop nylon fly is lightweight, highly water repellent and tear resistant.
