Both Backpacker Mag and Backpackinglight.com reviewed our Echo II Ultralight Shelter Systems and agreed that minimalist campers “…won’t find a lighter option with this much protection.” Consisting of three modular components, the Echo II works just like a traditional fully-enclosed tent, but weighs significantly less. It consists of a tarp, made with 100% waterproof Cuben Fiber, a detachable no-see-um bug mesh tent insert with bathtub floor for 100% protection against ground water and insects, and a detachable vestibule for severe weather protection. Available in Classic White or Spruce Green.
