ALPS Mountaineering Aries 2-Person Tent Product Review

In an outdoor survival situation, it’s essential to preserve as much of your energy as possible. With the ALPS Mountaineering Aries 2-Person Tent, you won’t be wasting your efforts setting this shelter up.

It features a super-easy assembly, using a free-standing pole system so you can set it up quickly and with no hassle. The main poles are constructed with 7000 series aluminum, so they are tough and sturdy while providing generous interior space.

Not only is it simple to assemble, but the tent is durable against the elements. The tent body is made from UV and water-resistant polyester, and comes with factory sealed seams for extra protection.

The tent will comfortably fit two people, with vertical walls that increase interior room and create a center height of 42 inches. It is made more spacious by the doors situated on the left and right sides of the tent, so you won’t have to awkwardly crawl over people to get in and out. The tent is also equipped with dual vestibules, so you can keep your survival gear sheltered from the elements.

With its easy assembly, you also get an easy to carry tent. It is relatively lightweight, although not the lightest on our list, weighing just shy of 6lbs overall. However, it can pack down into a compact size to fit nicely into your backpack.
