The Orson Indie 2 tent is a popular ultralight 2 person tent for adventurers who have to carry their gear over long distances and are looking to minimise weight. Built using high quality Ripstop Silnylon, an ultra lightweight fine nylon fabric much lighter and stronger than heavier polyester. A silicone coating on the upper side adds strength and a polyurethane waterproof coating on the underside means that factory heat taped seams have been applied (no need for messy liquid seam sealants).
Tried and tested over the past few years here in NZ, great performance and weather handling, adaptability with its multi-pitch options, and all at just 1.35-1.4kg. No poles included - designed for use with trekking poles or we have optional aluminium and ultralight carbon fibre poles.
Portability - An ideal lightweight tramping or bike packing 2 person tent with a double wall design for better ventilation and ability to deal with condensation. Weighs approx 1.4kg and packs down to approx. 35cm x 15cm diameter so easily fits in your pack and easy when split between two. To reduce weight the tent is designed to stand using 2 trekking poles or also have optional115cm alu poles (165g each) or115cm carbon fibre poles(77g each) available for purchase.
Weather handling – Strong pyramid design performs well in all weather. Constructed using light weight but durable 20D Ripstop Silnylon with PU3000mm underside coating and taped seams so is fully waterproof. 2021's version has a stronger 40D Ripstop Nylon and a higher PU5000mm waterproof coating. There is still an optional groundsheet that sits under the inner floor (doesn't cover vestibule areas) if you feel it's needed to offer greater protection for the floor.
*There are 2 tie out points on the tent that cannot be seam sealed - so we will seam seal these 2 spots for you. But this requires 24 hours to apply and test before shipping out your tent. Or we haveseam sealantavailable for you to apply yourself (simple, 10 minute exercise). We recommend doing this to prevent any possible problems out in heavy rain conditions.
Easy pitch – Quick, no fuss pitching. Just leave the inner hooked up to the fly, stake it out and insert poles and stake them out - great when setting up in rain to keep the inner dry. Also has multi-pitch options to suit your needs – can be used as fly only, inner only or as a double wall tent.
Easy entry/exit with identical 3 zip inverted ‘T’ inner doors on each side, no need to crawl over your partner to get out and allows for easy to access gear stowed in vestibule from either left or right side of the main pole.
Another great performance and value choice for adventure campers. Also available in a heavier Ripstop Polyester version - see theMax 2
