Mons Peak IX Trail 43 2 in 1 Backpacking Tent

  • $ 699.95


The Mons Peak IX Trail 43 Backpacking tent is a unique design. It allows a tent to switch from a 3 person to a 4-person model by only exchanging a few key parts, saving the backpacker from having to purchase two tents to accomplish what the Mons Peak IX Trail 43 backpacking tent does. The floor of the tent unzips from the upper body of tent to allow for a smaller 3-person or larger 4-person setup. The tent uses the same rainfly for both models, but has differing clip connections based on the model currently being using. The two main poles have pole extenders added, for different models.  Shorter for the 3 person model and the longer extensions for the 4 person model. The pole extensions simply connect into the longer tent poles for extending or shortening the base.

*The Trail 43 has been tested in Iceland, California, Colorado, and the UK 

Many thanks to Debbie and Myron! Trail 43 performed excellently in all weather conditions - including rain, wind upto 30-35mph and sunshine. The tent was easy and quick to pitch and fold up every night and morning. There was no condensation inside the tent in this weather.
