The outdoor industry is full of interesting companies, new and old. So when the new kid on the block shows up and wins an ISPO award for the design and implementation of their first project, it causes a ruckus within the industry. Luckily, Samaya’s ultralight camping gear is the real deal — and now, they’ve announced their newest tent, dubbed the 2.5.
It’s obvious that the company has paid close attention to the industry’s top competitors, opting for a durable, but packable Dyneema construction, Cordura reinforcement, YKK Aquaguard zippers, and FeatherLite poles, to create the 2.5’s winning recipe. Since it’s a four-season tent, it can take on virtually any environment at various times of the year, making it an attractive proposition for year-round duo camping. And since it can hold all of your gear and keep it protected from adverse weather (due to its 20,000mm waterproof rating), this 3.5-pound model is sure to become a mainstay among outdoor enthusiasts looking to keep a lightweight enclosure in their trail pack. Head to Samaya’s website to pick up one of your own in either Blue or Pink for around $1,070.
