Mountain Hardwear Strato UL 2 Tent

The Strato UL 2 is a lightweight and packable backcountry refuge for everything from weekend getaways to multiweek missions. Providing the most living space for the weight in its class, the Strato UL 2 combines innovative design features with premium, lightweight materials to cut weight without sacrificing quality.

Over the past couple of years, one GearJunkie team member has been bitten by the bikepacking bug. What started as a “quick overnight” with less than ideal gear has quickly turned into a long-term mission to build an effective ultralight camp setup.

A huge part of that mission is finding a shelter that has the right combination of space and comfort while still being light and packable. For him, the Strato UL 2 hits the mark.

At just over 2 pounds, 5 ounces, and packing down to 6 x 12″ (tent) and 2.5 x 16″ (poles), this tent provides ample space in an efficient package. With room for two, a fully waterproof rainfly, and dual dry-entry vestibules, the tent offers everything he needs and more. He can have the tent set up in about 2 minutes upon arriving at his destination, and teardown goes even quicker.

You can sleep two in this tent comfortably without feeling cramped. And when you’re rolling solo, you’ve got room for days. The Strato 2 UL will be joining him on many adventures to come!
