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.

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.

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

Congratulations to about 700 sold tents before the end rush @MichaelBretz! Not surprising though given the product. How are things moving along with the solid inner? I want to join in and spend on this tent, as I did on Dans backpack...

Will there be bungy loops attached to the tubs for the tracking poles to go through to help spread the bathtub fully open?

@dandurston Hey Dan- any insight into this? It looks like there are loops in the prototype pics.

@C5Drvr @rel406 Yes there are loops on the sides of the bathtub floor that can be used (optional) to better tension the floor by connecting them to the pole handles. Works well.

Dear Dan, this looks amazing. However, I will go to the US for a hike in mid-September, I assume it won't be shipped by then? Thanks in advance

Sorry I missed your comment. This is just a pre-sale before the tents are produced and that production takes a long time (~8 months) so the tents aren't arriving until spring (hence the discount).

No, you didn't hear us. So many requests for a solid inner and you ignored them. Goodbye.

Sorry to hear you are not interested in a mesh inner tent. We are working on a solid inner but where not able to offer it for preorder at this point. It is very challenging to find the right material for a solid inner that performs well and is reasonably priced. No one would enjoy a solid inner that is not breathable or cost $400 or worse both. That said, we are testing different materials that look promising. If preorders are good we plan to offer an additional version with the next run when the tent goes to store without doubling price and weight.

Please make an option to purchase the solid inner separately for those of us who have the mesh already. Cheers
