Our inspiring overview is coming soon. For now, here is what Hyperlite has to say:
The UltaMid 2 has the dimensions to accommodate couples and a dog, or a solo hiker, backpacker, or bikepacker who’d like to keep their gear covered at night.
When it comes to portable shelter, few designs have been as thoroughly time-tested and proven as those built in the pyramid-style. They’re easy to set up, efficiently spacious, and because of things like physics, incredibly capable of providing sanctuary in all but the most extreme weather.
While the remarkable 1.17 lbs. weight of the UltaMid 2 will be a welcome reduction to any kit’s overall mass, put any concerns to rest that it translates to a sacrifice in durability. The 100% waterproof Dyneema? Composite Fabrics used to build this elegant structure will outlast garden-variety silnylon materials many times over. Get cozy with the idea of unpacking the comfort and security of home, wherever home may be, for years to come.
Use it with the UltaMid 2 Mesh Insert, No Floor, or with the Full or Half Insert with a DCF11 floor. Set up with adjustable trekking poles or suspend the UltaMid from the central peak. Available in Classic White or Spruce Green. Stake Kits sold separately.
