Most of the time, when it comes to camping shelters, you have to pick between toughness and functionality or portability and light weight. But not anymore, thanks to Hyperlite’s UltaMid 2 – a 2-person sleeper that perfectly combines capability and practicality.

A big reason this minimalist shelter is so cool is its construction. Made from Dyneema, the tent is both absurdly lightweight (less than 1.2 lbs total) but also incredibly tough (puncture- and slash-resistant and 100% waterproof). It’s also fully seam-sealed, so you don’t have to worry about the outside elements creeping in, and has a waterproof 2-way zipper. Better still, it can be erected with trekking poles, skis, walking sticks, or whatever else you find to give it some structure. Or you can forego a structure altogether and hang it from a tree. In any case, this is one of the most durable and capable minimalist tents we’ve ever come across. And it can be yours for $608.

Purchase: $608
