If you can’t view the video now, here are some images and perceptions more summarized about the tent:
Packing the tent
The packaging is quite voluminous, but made with quality. Its handles make it easier if you intend to load your original packing tent, but if you are alone, we recommend that you remove the contents of the tent and load it in your backpack for greater convenience.
After opening the package have access to internal content, which is composed of the tent room, sobreteto, fiberglass rods, espeques and the internal network.
Rods with indications of color
To ease installation the rods have two different colors, one black, one red. To assemble the tent the right way just follow the tapes that are fixed in the tent room, each tape has one of the two colors of the rods.
Connecting the rods with the tent
Connecting the rods with the tent
The tent has a small “pin” on each end, which is used to secure the rods. Simply put the PIN in the stick and she’s going to be fixed.
The model is Self-supporting
It is very common to choose a location and then assembling the tent we discover that there is a disturbing stone right in the middle of the room. In 2 Dimension we have the ease of a self-supporting structure, that is, you can mount it without worry and then put it on the surface.
Hooks to fix the sobreteto in the tent
By placing the sobreteto you should fix the tapes that come on it in Rails (detail shown in video) and also the hooks at each end, as shown in the photo above.
Elastic bands for fixing of espeques in soil
Finally, you should stretch the sobreteto and hold it with the espeques that come with the tent. Remember that you need a site that allows fixing them and you must leave the sobreteto well stretched to avoid condensation during the night. If the wind is too strong, you can also stretch the rigging present in sobreteto and pin them to the ground, too.
As shown in the video and in photos, Dimension 2 tent features a solid structure against wind and rain, as well as having an inner space comfortable for one person and viable for two people. Its advance allows you to keep backpacks and boots protected from rain, and allow more room for the essentials.
Of course, all this comes at a price: weight and volume. The quota 2 suffers a bit in these questions so sought after by experienced hikers, but perfectly meets the needs of a structured camping or even a wild camp.
If you plan to camp in structured or sites that do not require long walks, buy and be happy;
If you’re going to do trails, maybe more interesting search for lighter models. However, if you don’t mind the weight, will make a fine addition as well.
I hope you enjoyed our analysis. You have this model? Know someone who has? If Yes, please report your opinion of this tent in the comments!
