Product description

Tired of feeling like you're trapped in a windowless basement hotel room when you're sleeping in the tent? The Mountain Hardwear Optic 2.5 2-Person 3-Season Tent is more beach cabana than stuffy cave, with full mesh walls and a fly that rolls back to give you total ventilation and a 180-degree view. As the name suggests, it's designed to sleep 2.5 people, meaning it can hold all the kids in one of those perfectly typical suburban families the census tells us about, or two adults and a dog or child. You could probably even make it work for three grown-ups, if you really liked each other and wanted to save weight. There's tons of headroom, too?four whole feet.

To correspond with the mega-opening of the fly, the Optic has two adjacent doors with matching vestibules to make getting in, out, and keeping gear dry no big deal. It's easy to pitch, too, with lightweight DAC Pressfit aluminum poles and color-coded tabs on the fly and body so there's no confusion. Just because it's mesh doesn't mean it'll get soggy if the clouds open up, either?the fly's made of a tightly-woven polyester taffeta that's treated with polyurethane, and the floor's constructed of rugged nylon, with a PU layer that's even more burly than what's on the fly. The Optic packs up light, too, with a superlight weight of under six pounds, but still has plenty of gear pockets and an optional gear loft to hold all your stuff (it holds things well, too).
  • Polyester mesh body
  • Polyester taffeta fly and nylon taffeta floor with PU coatings
  • 2 mesh doors with roll-back vestibules for great views
  • Comfortably holds two adults and a child or dog
  • Three DAC Pressfit aluminum poles
  • Reflective color-coded set-up tabs
  • Internal pockets
  • Gear loft sold separately

Question from André | Düsseldorf

ich würde gerne wissen, wie viel das Gestänge allein wiegt. Und ob das angegebene Gesamtgewicht auf Herstellerangaben oder eigenem Nachwiegen beruht...

Hi André,

das Gestänge alleine wiegt 565g.
Der Beutel mit den Heringen 143g.
Die Angaben beruhen immer auf den Herstellerangaben.
Nachgewogen standen 3130g auf der Waage (allerdings mit allen Packsäcken, Beuteln, Gummis, Bändel etc.)

Hoffe das hilft dir weiter.
