Help support and camp in style with a Mountain Hardwear Helion 2 Tent from Click on the photo below…


The Helion hails as Mountain Hardwear’s lightest two-person tent. And just because it weighs under 3.5lb doesn’t mean this three-season shelter won’t do its duty when rain, wind, or muggy weather comes into play. Mountain Hardwear designed the Helion with the serious superlight backpacker in mind. With the use of only three Atlas UL poles, Mountain Hardwear’s Evolution Tension Arch system stabilizes the tent during high winds. The Helion 2 Tent’s welded construction and fully taped fly guarantee a waterproof camping experience—Mountain Hardwear rain-room-tested this puppy with 1200 inches of rain over 24 hours. PitchLight option: Set this tent’s fly up with poles and the Helion 2 Footprint (not included) for a damn near weightless backcountry shelter.

Bottom Line: The Mountain Hardwear Helion 2 Tent : an ultralight with might.

    Andrew this is an awesome contest…if I gave up right now (I won’t) I’ll have learned more about mountains and people than I have in a quite a while. Hopefully I’m on the right track but I think I have this figured out.

    Andrew, i agree with Tad, this contest is great. But let me tell you I love your website, living in NYC at the moment i’m living my ski life vicariously through you. I spent all of my time skiing, teach and racing in Europe, being English. Now I’m older and fatter but your site is inspiring me to change that, the fat bit that is!!!
