DescriptionThe redesigned HiLight 2P offers assault tent performance in a roomy, steep-side wall construction. The new Flow Manifold (patent pending) allows interior heat convection and exterior airflow to draw moisture vapor and stale air out of the tent. New, high tenacity 30D poly fabric keeps the tent tight as a drum in all conditions and is treated for flame resistance for North America compliance/availability. We’ve also added fully taped seams (no more seam sealing required on your own), reinforced internal pole grips, and reflective guylines that are now three times stronger. In addition, the Flow Manifold allows for a central, ceiling exit rope for anchoring in on steep pitches.

Rated 2 out of 5 by DontListenToMe from Heavier than Specs indicate Specs indicate 3 lbs 2 oz as packed weight and 2 lbs 10 oz as trail weight. I received the tent and the packed weight appeared to be 4 lbs. Tent with stuff sack but w/o poles and stakes was 2 lb 10 oz. (2 lb 7 oz w/o stuff sack). Poles were about 1 lb. Stakes were about 5 oz. Not sure if I'm missing something but it would be impossible to get the trail weight to 2 lb 10 oz. My scale could be broken but the reason I weighed it was because it just felt too heavy. Seems like a great tent and maybe I'm not understanding the spec weights.

Rated 3 out of 5 by marc from Nice tent for one person! I had the previous version of this tent for years and loved it and was therefore really looking forward to the "new version". Set-up is still very easy (for people who have trouble with the cross pole just remember to put it in before the inside ones and it is a snap). The problem with this tent is the space. It is not a two person tent, especially for two large people). It is great they cut the weight down...but they also cut the size! It is just not usable for two people. I hope I will be able to return it. I would also agree with another reviewer who said the plastic ring at the top makes it hard to pack up the tent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mike from Storm Proof I was reluctant to purchase this tent as first hand reviews from fellow professionals and public assured me that this would not hold up in storms. The new design/material seem to have fixed that problem completely for the time being. Time will tell how the material will hold up, but I have been caught in multiple rain storms thus far since owning the tent and I am nothing but impressed. Condensation is a bit of an issue if you have the door and window zipped completely up, however I've had much more condensation in similar style single walled tents. The weight of the entire setup is hard to believe, it compacts down to a very small size, and is a pleasure to carry even on the longest missions. The size of the tent is big enough for two people if you keep some gear outside of the tent. Personally I probably won't use it for anything but a one person tent, but that is mainly due to the fact that I work in the mountains in all sorts of weather and cannot keep many things outside. Setup is not nearly as bad as other reviews may suggest, yes the cross pole can be difficult to get together but that is what provides a large amount of the stability in the upper reaches of the tent. The main poles are a breeze to snap together, and I found them very easy to get set up in the tent. All in all I am very satisfied with the tent, especially at this price point. This tent is great for those looking to get further out, with less weight on their back. I personally don't know that I would take it to a place where it's raining for a week straight but I'm looking forward to hearing from the person that does. Great for alpine ascents of peaks where weight really matters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by poweroffour from An Improvement I am a previous owner of the "Wasabi" earlier version of the Hilight 2p. I've just returned from camping in the new tent at elevations over 11,000 feet. The conditions included sunshine, hail, and very heavy winds and heavy rain. The tent performed very well, I love the new ceiling venting and color. Note that even with the new tent roof ventilation, the side windows should be open or the interior walls will get damp. That isn't a problem because of the generous overhang above the windows.

Rated 3 out of 5 by chrisfillion from Weight error I'm completely in love with the HiLight tent and when the blue version came out and it was supposed to be even lighter with more features I bought it immediately. Unfortunately the new blue version is 1 pound heavier than the old version. I see now that the weights have been corrected on the website. I'm going back to the Wasabi HiLight and I hope Black Diamond will consider making an ultralight tent like the old version again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by tking from Too short I absolutely love this tent. It is very easy to set up. The huge entry door is amazing especially since it has a mesh door as well. The build quality seems top notch. The width is just right to put essential gear on 1 side of you. However I am returning the tent due to length. I am 6'1" and I touch end to end with no sleeping bag. I measured the interior and came up with about 78-79" of actual length. Even laying diagonally I was just about touching both ends. I knew before purchasing that might be an issue. And I understandit is just a bivy tent made to save weight and pitch in small areas, but just the extra 4" or so added length would be nice to accomodate slightly taller people and make it a bit more versatile. Again though, excellent tent if you are <5'10".

Rated 5 out of 5 by chamilton45 from Great for snow mountaineering as a solo Had this tent for my climb up Mt. Shasta. It did great in keeping moisture out. Lightweight, easy to set up. Was roomy (I could put my bag boots, etc on one side and my full air pad and sleep comfortably on one side. One complaint: the wiring in the fabric made it hard to pack in my bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Samson from Holds up Pre seam seal!!!! This is my most proven Trent I’ve ever owned; the durability, strength, and weight make it my number on summit assault choice no matter which time of year it is.
