The Mountain Hardwear Ghost UL 2 is an ultralight, freestanding, two person tent that caters to minimalist backpackers seeking the utmost in easy-carrying efficiency.

Mountain Hardwear says:

Tipping the scales at just over 2 pounds, the Ghost UL 2 is our lightest double wall two-person tent. Designed for the fast-moving backcountry adventurer seeking an ultralight, freestanding, full-coverage shelter. Large full-size door and dry entry vestibule allow for easy access into the tent and to gear storage.

Mountain Hardwear's Ghost UL tents have basically replaced the Super Mega UL series. It's not only lighter than its predecessor but larger and more durable too. They previously used a 10D fly fabric but have now found a 20D that's actually lighter! It's fibres are stronger in the weave and it's not as immersed in PU coating. They were still able to keep the water protection the same.

It's still quite a spacious tent with good head height maintained over a good length of the tent (relatively speaking of course). We especially like the wishbone at the back - this makes it truly free standing which is a useful feature if you are going to use it high in the mountains where dirt might be a luxury! The rear wishbone also gives added stability when compared to other tents of this design and it enables the head height to be maintained across a greater distance.

When you`re pushing the boundaries and making tents this light the result won't be as robust as heavier tents but Mountain Hardwear have definitely made a big improvement with these new designs.

Very good, especially for the money

I bought this tent for my wife and I as a backpacking option (We have an MSR Elixir 2 for carcamping). So far only the one night on the clock, but experiences so far have been positive. It's a good job it's my wife, the size makes it "Get to know you" time, but with a double sleeping bag it works fine. Bit of condensation on the edges, where is is effectively a single skin tent - to be expected I guess. Durability isn't going to be as good as something with thicker materials, but you can't expect a tent of this weight to be compromise free. Price is significantly more reasonable than most in this weight range. Replaced the pegs with 6g titanium pegs. 7 pegs provided, but you need 9 if you want to be able to use the guys, which is probably a good idea if there is much wind. Basically, very good for the money, don't expect a tent of this weight to be compromise free, carry some tent tape incase you damage it, and you'll be fine...
