Brooks-Range Tension 30 Tent [$419.95]  is fittingly named. The new tent design features one long carbon pole for structure combined with two crossing poles for level headroom and two-millimeter cord integrated at the seams to create the perfect amount of tension for optimal stability. It’s a two-person, three season tent that is compact yet loaded with top-notch features (Fully seam taped, No Drip vestibule entrance, Fly vent, Corner pockets and Reinforced stake points). The intelligent engineering feat also makes an extremely light carry. The Tension 30, offering 30 square feet of room weighs in at a paltry three pounds, while the Tension 40 [$499] provides 40 square feet at only four pounds. It’s easy to assemble as well as breakdown and pack up and  it’s great for both the serious back country trekker as well as the casual “hike-in” camper. Brooks-Range is a small company of mountaineers providing top-quality equipment for alpinists, backcountry travelers, and professional mountain and ski guides.
