The Chaos three-person backpacking tent is lightweight and weatherproof, making it ideal for trail hikes in the fall, summer, and spring. The freestanding Chaos is easy to assemble, with lightweight, shock-corded aluminum poles and secure tent clips that work together in a single continuous system. As a result, you don't have to waste time setting up the tent when you could be kicking back at the campfire. The tent's body is made of lightweight but strong polyester taffeta fabrics, with a multi-pass urethane coating on the full-coverage fly and floor providing maximum weather protection. And to further protect the tent's interior from moisture, the Chaos includes factory seals on the seams and floor and secure fly buckles. The design helps the tent resist rainy, windy weather conditions.
The tent also offers two doors for easy entry and exit during midnight bathroom trips, along with two vestibules for gear storage. And users will love the mesh roof vents and pair of windows (integrated within the doors), which increase ventilation on hot, muggy nights. Other features include extra-large #8 zippers that make it a breeze to open and close the doors, extra guy-outs on the fly for added stability in bad weather, and mesh storage pockets and a gear loft for storing smaller items. Outfitted with a tent bag for transport, the Chaos also comes in a two-person version.
