We make Double Wall (DW), Single Wall (SW) and Hybrid style shelters. Learn about each here.

All of our shelters are non-freestanding. That means that they require staking to remain standing. They are designed to utilize your trekking poles for support, but we offer optional tent poles for most of our shelters as an alternative.

Double Wall
(Cirriform DW)
2-piece design comprised of separate rain fly and inner net-tent

Advantages

  • Better ventilation
    ~ Less prone to condensation
  • More versatile
    ~You can use either piece independently of the other

Disadvantages

  • Less spacious
    ~ Due to buffer space between outer and inner
  • More complex
    ~ More lines and connections
Single Wall
(Cirriform SW)
1-piece design with floor and bug netting integrated into rain fly

Advantages

  • Simple
    ~ Less fuss due to one-piece design
  • More Spacious
    ~ Roomier than comparable DW models

Disadvantages

  • Less ventilated
    ~ More prone to condensation
  • Less versatile
    ~ One piece design means fewer pitching configurations
Hybrid
(Swiftline)
1-piece design that blends the properties of DW and SW style shelters

While still one-piece, hybrid shelters have netting configured such that there is a double layer of material (netting and rain fly) between you and the outside for a significant portion of the shelter. Our Swiftline shelters utilize this design.

  • Roomiest of our shelters
  • Versatility offers many of the advantages of a DW in a one-piece shelter
