I finally found my balance. I've been lighting up my pack weight for the past few years now. Sometimes this meant adding and removing gear to get where I wanted to be in terms of my hiking style and needs. Gen of Yama Mountian Gear has created this balance in the Swiftline 2p Shelter.

The space, function, and ease of use this shelter provides is perfect! Quality is excellent. I can't find any flaws at all. This shelter is fairly straightforward to set up once you get the hang of it and great to be in. I use this shelter out here on The Appalachian Trail here in the Northeast. Finally a shelter I don't have to struggle to get in and out of like some of the other lighter weight shelter options out there.

Setup can be a bit tricky at first. I would practice your pitch before heading out to the trail. You need to play with the pole heights some to get your pitch taut. Once you figure it out this shelter is stable and ready for whatever nature will throw at it.

Experience

I've had this shelter for over two years now. Rain, some snow, and windy conditions had nothing on this shelter. Strong and durable when well pitched. Headroom is excellent. You will have enough room to sit up and stretch out after a long day of hiking. Plenty of pitching options. You can hunker down when full piched and closed in bad weather or enjoy 360 views with all the options for you to easily roll up the fly for views.
