Product No: 050205

- This product is currently out of stock

Comparable in weight and price to a bivy sack, but so much more comfortable. The Light Year has long been a staple of three-season cyclists and thru-hikers, both for its 1.22Kg (2 lbs 11 oz) weight and its superior comfort - 2870mm (113") long and 965mm (38") tall! DAC Featherlite poles help us achieve its miraculous weight, while a SuperSeal floor treated with Tent Guard with Ultra Fresh makes it long-lasting and weatherproof. Reflective guy-outs and zipper pulls trick out the feature set, making this an ultralight but fully featured shelter. Tried-and-true, the Light Year backpacks, climbs, bike tours - you name it, the Light Year has been there, done that.

Unbelievably light, but spacious and weatherproof, the Light Year is the solo backpacker's gold standard.
