Teton Sports Mountain Ultra Tents – Gear Review

DSC_0136

During the summer 2014 Teton Sports launched a brand new tent line called the Mountain Ultra. This line of four different sizes of tents can accommodate those who are looking for a single person up to a four person family.

The tents all have the same construction set up instructions and overall concept.  What sets these tents apart from many of the others is their very interesting ridge pole system. Designed to give you a wider ceiling and vestibules. The micro mesh tent will give you 360 degree views of your campsite, but if you would prefer a little more privacy or weather protection simply snap on the provided rain fly.  The rain fly creates a nice vestibule area to stow your gear from the elements.

The 2,3, and 4 person tents have two doors to easily enter the tent from either side. Mesh gear pockets to store your gear for easy access during the night. Extra high walls in the bathtub floor help prevent water from entering the tent even in the most severe storms.

What is in the bag? The tents come with the inner tent, rain fly, footprint, stakes, and aluminum poles.

 Why we like these tents!

The biggest positive thing about these tents is that they are built with the average person in mind. Easy to set up and use, easy to pack up, and are light weight. They are perfect for backpacking, car camping, and everything in between. The prices are great for the quality of the product you are getting in both the manufacturing and the materials used in the tents.  (More after the photos)

The tents are incredibly roomy with plenty of head room to be able to move around comfortably while camping alone or with others. Specifically designed pass-through ventilation technology clears away condensation.  These tents are a huge asset to the Teton Sports gear arsenal to get the everyday Joe camper, backpacker, and car camper outfitted with low cost quality gear.
