The WindSaber is a true 4-season mountaineering tent at under 5 lbs.
SlingFin's new lightweight 2 person Alpine/Mountaineering tent features our patented, award-winning WebTruss™ Technology, and includes our new clip system which allows the tent to be set up with or without the WebTruss™.
Why the WebTruss™? Think of the WebTruss™ as a skeleton that can be used in a variety of combinations based upon the needs of your trip and the surrounding environment.
Pole sleeves are the best way to distribute force evenly over a tent body, but when setting up a sleeve tent in high winds the tent essentially acts as a kite until the last pole is in. For this reason, clip-style tents mostly dominate the market for high-altitude mountaineering. However, clip-style tents produce uneven amounts of stress and tension on the tent body. The WebTruss™ combines the ease of a clip system with the strength of a sleeve system. Throw your flysheet over the WebTruss™ and you can finish installing the tent body while protected from the outside elements. When conditions aren’t your primary concern and ounces are, you can switch the tent body attachment points to twist clips and leave the WebTruss at home!
Intended Use: The WindSaber redefines what’s possible for a lightweight, yet strong, 4-season tent. The light weight and small packed size makes it easy for this tent to be carried farther on fast and light alpine missions.
