A Tent Built for Two

We Heard You! The Massdrop X Dan Durston X-MID 1P Tent has been by far the most successful outdoor product in Drop’s history. No other product has seen engagement even close to the levels we saw on the 1P tent. Over 5K of you have hit the request button, 2K comments have been made in the discussion, and so far 45 reviews have hit with an average of 4.9 out of 5 stars. But there was one thing that many of you have been asking for that up until today we could not give you: a two-person version! We teamed up with Dan Durston again and got to work. We kept the basic design, two big vestibules, and the need for only two trekking poles. With the 2P, however, we made the inner wider so two people can comfortably sleep next to each other. An inner footprint of 47” x 92” offers enough space and guarantees a great night sleep even for the tallest of hikers. With the new, roomier inner, we updated quite a few construction details like the position of the vents on the fly and the pockets on the inside to make them easier to access. We did quite a few prototypes, evaluated all kinds of detail solutions, like magnets as fasteners for doors and vents, but dismissed the idea after testing it in the field.  We went out and tested the tent next to glaciers in British Columbia and in the deserts of the southwestern United States. We endured rain, snow, wind and even a sandstorm, and the prototypes held up well. We also sent it to a lab to get the materials tested and tortured to ensure it passed the most rigorous of tests.

Loving the look of this tent, but any thoughts on pitching without hiking poles? We often cycle camp as well as hike so would like an alternative to carrying/pitching with hiking poles... any thoughts?

Any 47” to 48” folding tent poles should work. I’m not a trekking pole user either and have used a variety of different folding poles with this tent and the 1P. No issues. The 2P FAQ on the Durstongear website provides some recommendations.

Mine is on the way too. Can't wait! I was so focused on dyneema that I totally overlooked the X-Mid design. So glad I came across this Tent. I saved myself from a $700 regret. Just a few ounces more to carry, but a way, way better design... worth it. I probably would still buy a tent in dyneema, but only in Dan Durston X-Mid design. If it ever came into production.

Just wondering do you have Xmid 1p and 2p available cuben fibre yet? Want to compare with other tents looking at buying one soon. thanks in advance for any help.
No we don't have DCF/Cuben Fibre versions. I'd like to do that eventually but I haven't been successful in convincing Drop to do that yet, so we won't have those anytime soon unfortunately.

Yeah to be honest there are a lot fewer of us interested in a tent that costs $200 more and only weighs a few ounces less, so drop might be right on that... Especially since they are having trouble keeping up with demand on this one.

Please let me know when the 2P is a available
They should be opening up orders for in stock X-Mid 2Ps around April. They may sell out quick, so if you want a notice you can click "request" on the main X-Mid 2P page here on Drop or sign up for the mailing list on DurstonGear.com: https://durstongear.com/product/x-mid-2p
