The Mountain Hardwear Optic 2.5 is an exciting new concept in backpacking tents, Not The Lightest. Nope, it's designed for those that want a little more room and/or better visibility from inside the tent. It sleeps 2.5 people according to the specs but that just means that the 2 of you will have a bit more room to fool around with or I suppose you could bring a kid or a dog. The Optic 2.5's defining feature is the 2 large adjacent doors that can open up to give you an expansive view of the terrain. Very Cool! It also means that getting in or out is easier and ventilation is terrific. It also means you have 2 Vestibules to stow gear in. Add shockcorded DAC PressFit aluminum poles, sealed seams on the Fly and Floor and a Full Coverage Fly to keep the tent dry in the most outrageous storms and you have one very exciting and industry leading tent. Well of course, it's a Mountain Hardwear tent. Doh!.Color Coded Set Up is fast and simple.
