Product Description
Designed to be the best double-wall solo shelter supported by trekking poles, the X-Mid is the brainchild of Dan Durston, an experienced thru-hiker and established member of the ultralight community. It aims to solve the common issues seen in trekking-pole-supported tents: Most are single-trekking-pole pyramids, which lack headroom, or overly complex multi-pole designs, which are tedious to pitch Read More

Will tracking info be provided? I'm cutting it super close and keeping my fingers crossed to use it for my JMT 7/27 start!

Hi Dan, I think you've got a tremendous tent here. One small point, I live in the UK where wild camping is not allowed, we have to be stealthy, are there any plans for a dark green option please? Glad to see solid inners will be introduced soon and in all other respects the tent looks ideal for our wet and windy conditions. Congratulations. John

Yeah, it'll be great when solid inner materialises. While the fly definitely is lower to the ground (that's really great and truly commendable in an ultralight tent where a designer might be tempted to cut some fabric area for better weight numbers) and more windbreaking than in mainstream American tents, but windchill of cold ground wind still makes mesh unattractive. I really like the colour. Both just aesthetically (a matter of personal taste) and as an economical compromise. A kind of awkward but functional middle ground between brazing safety colours and stealthy greens and browns. Great choice when you have to pick only one.

It's definitely easy on the eyes. Fits in great with the foliage of my area.

Looking forward to getting the tent. Its maiden voyage will be 5 days in the depths of the Grand Canyon in November.

Hi Dan, I'm looking for a new carbon Fiber tent pole but noticed ruta locura is out of stock. Tried to order one from Six Moons but the shipping to Canada is as costly as the product itself. Is there any other options for quality sectional carbon Fibre tent poles?

A nice option if you're handy is to built your own set using the carbon fiber pole sections sold here: https://www.questoutfitters.com/Tent_Poles_CF.htm Those Easton 6.3 poles are the same poles as Six Moon Designs is using but in exchange for hacksawing them to the appropriate length and adding the shockcord and end caps yourself, you save on the price. You can built a 4 or 5 section pole, but 5 is nicer because it packs shorter like the tent. To do that, you need 4 sections with insert and 1 last section without, so in total you need these parts:

Total cost is about $40 USD for two poles, whereas SMD is $40 each. Quest Outfitters has good shipping to Canada (their prices are a bit high but they usually cost less and then they refund you the differences).

I'm a new-er and small backpacker who is hoping to reduce pack weight where I can. I'm trying to decide between the 1p and the 2p for me(5'8 and 110lbs) and my dog (80lbs). Although my dog is fine curling up at my feet or snuggling at night, I am concerned about touching the sides of the tent since we're on vanc. Island and it rains/is humid often. The vestibule is, unfortunately, not possible with a protective and prey-driven dog. Any insight or advice is appreciated! Thank you!

Would something like these https://www.blacks.co.uk/equipment/324745-hi-gear-tarp-telescopic-pole-230-cm.html work in place of trekking poles for bikepacking purposes?

What do you think the chance of the tent getting delivered before, or on, July 24? I have a week long backpacking trip that I am leaving for on that day.

I'm proud to say that I own one of these tents. It's actually pitched out in the yard right now getting some sun. It's still remarkable to me the ease of pitching, the innovation of design, the attention to construction detail and the smile it brings to my face. Small backstory. I've been playing with tarps also out in the yard to help pass time. Getting used to the origami aspect. I might do some tarp camping/hiking this year. Part two. Today I get an email that another vendor is finally able to release one of their tent models starting tomorrow. Admittedly, my finger has been cramped up over the Buy button for awhile. So. After putting the tarp(s) away, I break out the X-Mid. Killed two minutes seventeen seconds setting it up. Stood back. There's that smile again. Sheesh. How could I possibly think of buying another tent. That's it. That's my story. Gonna go now. Gonna go mess around with a kick ass X-Mid, even if it is just in the yard.
