Built for ultralight mountain adventures, the Distance Tent pairs with any set of adjustable length trekking poles with the included adapter to create the ultimate, fast-pitch shelter on the go.

Black Diamond says:

A compact two-person, three-season tent, the Black Diamond Distance Tent is an ultralight, single-wall shelter built for weight conscious backpackers, thru-hikers and mountain adventurers. The structure is created using two trekking poles* and the included adaptor that allows your poles to connect with a small DAC cross pole—resulting in the tent’s structure. Four stake-out points anchor the tent to create the ultimate fast pitch shelter—simple to set up and robust in windy conditions. For cross ventilation, there are vents at both the peak and foot area. Lightweight 30D polyester construction allows the tent to pack down to the size of a Nalgene bottle. There is a headlamp pocket located in the peak for easy illumination.

Black Diamond's Distance Tent with Adapter is an impressive piece of kit with a novel use of trekking poles to provide support. The Distance tent is quick and simple to set up. The cross pole is designed to slot into Black Diamond trekking poles but the provided adapter (74g) allows you to use any trekking pole with straightforward and strong velcro attachment.

Even with 2 people in the tent there is still some space for rucksacks but at this low weight it makes a palatial 1 person tent. As with any single skin shelter we would expect condensation be to an issue in certain conditions but this will be mitigated by the large front vent and smaller rear vent. Inside the tent there is a small side pocket and a mesh pocket for head torch illumination.
