The Quadratic™ Light Outer is a waterproof outer tent. Lightweight and dependable it is perfect as a sturdy three season mountain tent, and a lightweight option for winter.

Three poles (available separately) are needed to pitch the tent. One or two optional side poles can be added to make the middle of the tent free standing, and to provide superb resistance to side winds. Adding a top pole further stiffens the tent, and in heavy snows limits snow buildup and enhances ventilation.

The Quadratic™ Light Outer can be pitched by itself, or with a Groundfloor™ or Inner Tent. The Quadratic™ system allows either the inner or outer tent to be pitched first, or both to be pitched together in one quick operation.

One large and one smaller vestibule create plenty of space for gear storage and entry and exit. The doors open from the top or bottom, which allows easy access even if the end of the vestibule is buried in snow.

The top of each door forms a vent which can catch even gentle breezes, or can be sealed shut. Two all-weather vents are designed to be left open in almost any weather.
