Weighing almost seven pounds the
Mountain Hardwear: Annapurna isnít the lightest Super light tent on the
market, in-fact itís the heaviest of Mountain Hardwearís Backcountry
Superlight collection. But the Annapurnaís heavyweight heft gives it a
superior strength-to-weight ratio that stands up to winter snow conditions
that would fold other three-season super lights.
The Annapurna, like the
expedition-quality Tarango tent series, has a dual tension shelf design that
provides extra structural integrity without a tangle of taut cords and
lines. With its narrow floor design the Annapurna can sleep two adults and
still fit on ledges and platforms no wider than five feet. A
single-entry vestibule gives you room for wet gear without eating up living
space while nylon Superlight canopy fabric and a nylon taffeta floor (with
2,000-mm. Polyeather Urethane coating) helps to keep out the weather.
At around $450 the Annapurna
gives you year-round shelter without weighing down your pack.
