The Exogen provides a good amount of space in a strong, stable design. Top quality materials will see this tent stand up to serious conditions while still being light enough to use for multiday backpacking trips.
The Exogen 2 is a freestanding geodesic tent for two person - including two vestibules. Two aluminum hubs at the poles ensure high wind stability. The inner tent is set up first. The additional pole forms the vestibule, as soon as the fly sheet is stretched over it. For a very light weather protection, the fly sheet can be set up by using the Groundsheet. The inner tent is equipped with mosquito mesh in the doors as well as at the foot and head end. Additional inner tent pockets ensure order and offer space for otherwise odds and ends.

Wechsel's Exogen 2 Backpacking Tent is a great option for an all-rounder tent. With a strong design using cross poles and a low cut fly this tent stands up really well to the wind and rain regularly experienced in UK conditions. The materials used show immediate quality and have proven to be very durable with extended use.
The tent uses a fully silicone coated flysheet which gives increased UV protection and tear strength but does mean it can't be seam taped. The Exogen has seamed stitched in such a way that they should be waterproof but for use in extremely wet conditions it is supplied with a tube of silicone sealant so that you can seal the seams for additional weather protection.
The tent is easy to pitch and is great to use. The two doors work well and doesn't make getting in and out difficult like many others. Decent sized vestibules on either side are spacious enough for all your kit, while the low cut fly sheet provides extra protection for any gear stored there. The low fly is ideal for wet and windy conditions but it can also be pegged out or rolled up to allow a greater space for ventilation or use in good weather. Attention to detail and nice little touches in the design make Wechsel tents stand out.
