Hyperlite Mountain Gear Echo I One-Person Cuben Fiber Tent

Hyperlite Mountain Gear Echo I One-Person Cuben Fiber Tent

The tent performed outstandingly well on thru-hikes of the Appalachian Trail and Mountain to Sea Trail and is in very good condition. There is one small hole when pitched in the corner of the bathtub that could easily be repaired with some cuben fiber seam tape. It’s never really been an issue for me, so I’ve never repaired it. The tent has always been used on a Tyvek ground sheet. Trekking poles are required for setup, and are not included. The tent specifications are below. Hyperlite Mountain Gear expanded a niche in the ultralight shelter category they created an ultralight modular shelter system in which the components can be used separately or together. The components are: a catenary tarp, a mesh insert, and a front beak. The complete shelter adds up to a well-ventilated double-wall tent with full weather protection, or you can use the mesh insert or tarp separately when conditions allow. And HMG went to the extreme on the materials Cuben Fiber so these shelters are extremely light. The Echo I (one person) weighs just 23.6 ounces (669 g), and the Echo II (two people) weighs 29.9 ounces (848 g), with guylines but without stakes. An ultralight modular shelter system is a wonderful idea, as long as the components fit and function well together and separately; so how well do these shelters perform in the real world?
