With a diverse inventory that includes everything from packable pillows and sleeping pads to camp cookware and drybags, Sea To Summit has long-served as one of the outdoor industry’s premier purveyors of expedition-ready equipment. However, apart from a series of tarps and hammocks, the Australian-based brand has yet to make much in the way of shelter. That is, at least until now.
Meet Sea To Summit’s first-ever range of technical backcountry tents. Developed over the course of three years, it’s comprised of a pair of models known as the ‘Alto’ and the ‘Telos’, with the former offering accommodations for one or two sleepers and the latter for as many as three. In each case, Sea To Summit has packed its tents chock-full of 21st-century innovation, including Tension Ridge pole construction for improved volume and ventilation as well as a FairShare Storage System for modular organization and a pole storage case that doubles as a LightBar for interior illumination. And that’s not all — Sea To Summit has also designed each tent with a rain fly that can be left partially open for stargazing and outdoor group hangouts. They’ll go on sale for pre-order from $399 and $499, respectively, starting March 15th.
