Pinnacle of Ultralight Tent Design

The X-Mid Pro 1 is the ideal tent for the ultralight backpacker. It combines our maximally weight efficient X-Mid geometry with Dyneema® composite fabrics (DCF) to create one of the most spacious, simple, and stormworthy one person tents on the market - and yet it weighs under 1 pound (just 440 g for the lightest version).


Optimal Geometry

Patented X-Mid geometry with twin offset poles provides excellent headroom, living space, stormworthiness, and ease of pitching.


More interior volume and useable length than almost all other 1P shelters. It has 50% more volume than its closest rivals including 90" of length even 12" off the ground, make it suitable for hikers up to 6'8".

Dyneema® Fabric

Dyneema® Composite fabric (DCF) is extremely strong and highly waterproof (8,000mm).

Hot Bonded

Premium hot bonded construction is a more costly production method than sewing or cold taping but provides stronger seams.

Pre-Shrunk DCF

We use a proprietary pre-shrinking process to create a DCF shelter that doesn't deform over time or shrink to create wavy zippers. DCF shelters from most other brands gradually shrink and deform which means they don't pitch as well over time.

Reinforced Bias

We align all stress lines with the Dyneema fibers and/or add DCF tape reinforcement so that the panels are never stressed diagonally (on the 'bias'). Other DCF shelters often put major stress lines diagonally across the fabric to save costs but this deteriorates the material and shortens the tents lifespan.

Simple Pitch

Ultra-simple pitch uses just four stakes in an intuitive rectangle shape. There is no measuring, odd angles, or mandatory struts and guylines. Competing tents require 6-10 stakes, sometimes mandatory struts and guylines, and measuring or estimating odd angles and pole heights.

Full Coverage Fly

Full coverage fly extends low to block drafts and rain splatter, but can also be pitched higher for more ventilation. Other tents trim away the bottom of the fly to save weight but this leaves you more exposed to drafts and rain splatter.

Optional Guyouts

Optional peak and side panel guyouts plus up to 12 stakes around the base can be used for harsh conditions.

Protected Setup

Fly first setup keeps the interior dry during setup in the rain.

Compact Footprint

Compact 63" x 98" footprint plus the vestibules can be collapsed to fit into even smaller sites.

Magnetic Door Toggles

Magnetic door toggle system allows the fly doors to be quickly secured.

Small Packed Size

Tiny 4.5 x 10″ packed size can store horizontally in any pack.

Dual Doorways

Dual doorways are zippered, not blocked by trekking poles, and keep rain off the floor even when open.

Dual Vestibules

Dual vestibules are large, tall and put the main area beside the door instead of blocking it.

Dual Vents

Dual adjustable peak vents minimize condensation yet can close during harsh conditions.

Dual Pockets

Dual interior pockets provide convenient storage.
