The UltraLite Quick Tent™ is an ultralight, water-resistant rip-stop nylon shelter, specially designed for set-up with a single ski or trekking pole. This two-person, stand-alone tent sets up fast and has no zippers. This shelter pitches in about a minute, using a single trekking pole and 6 stakes. Reinforced pole caps holds the main pole in place, with a second point at the center rear of the tent. There are 21 webbing tie outs on corners and edges, including one on top of the pole cup for overhead suspension, and 3 webbing tie loops on the body of the tarp for better security in a storm.
The front entrance flaps can be left open for ventilation or overlapped and staked closed for protection from adverse weather. For best ventilation we recommend pitching your UltraLite Quick Tent™ a few inches above ground level.
In alpine conditions, Brooks Range recommends using the UltraLite Quick Tent™ along with a bivy bag. The UltraLite Quick Tent™ will also attach to front of many tents as a simple, extended vestibule.
The Brooks Range Quick Tent is neither quick nor a tent. To erect the fly takes more time than is required by a normal tent, and a dozen plus pegs. The "tent" is floor less. The fly, as it really is, is quite low (unless you have the side straps at maximum length and therefore you lose width for height. There's barely enough room for one person, let alone the two spaces advertised. The bottom of the fly scrapes the ground, I use a tripod to get enough elevation so that the bottom of my sleeping bag doesn't touch the fabric. Condensation can be a problem. The only time I had the fly ( I refuse to call this a tent) up and it drizzled the interior was quickly sodden. Light dew pours through it. The position of the pole in the fly cramps all but the smallest occupant. The weight is accurate, it does weigh less than 500g with pegs, but at the cost of being practically useless. The fly does pack well away in a vent pocket, which is clever design. considering the extortionate cost and complete unsuitability for the basic task of providing shelter, this item cannot be recommended. I am sorry I bought it.
