Backpacker Buyers Guide 2017

"True to its name, the WindSaber handled 60-mph gales with ease. 'The gusts were so strong that they started to pull the stakes out of the ground, but the tent handled it like a spring breeze.'" Backpacker Magazine 3/8/17

Modern Hiker

"(there are a lot of 4-season tents) that just don't live up to their promises…However, SlingFin's WindSaber strikes the right balance – light, strong, and modular." 1/28/17 slingfin windsaber


"The CrossBow 2 Mesh is the workhorse configuration of the SlingFin CrossBow 2 family. This tent will stand up to virtually any weather and conditions during three-season use, easily housing two people and ALL OF THEIR GEAR. This shelter is best suited for two travelers who simply cannot compromise quality and comfort. SlingFin did not cut any corners when it comes to quality of craftsmanship they are putting into the hands of their customers. Every stitch, feature, and clip is top of the range construction." 11/22/16 slingfin

"on Monday's episode of 'Adventure Capitalists,' SlingFin's tents easily withstood the 54 mile an hour winds they were tested against." Adventure Capitalists 8/22/16 ex-north-face-employee-wants-to-be-known... adventure-capitalists full-episode


"...consider that this four-season monster (WindSaber) could replace all the other tents in your garage... The Verdict: One tent to rule them all—and conquer all four seasons." Outside 2016


"What really makes it (2Lite) bike packable are the poles, though. They fold down to lengths of just ~8.5 inches, which means they easily fit into most handlebar roll bags." BikeRumor 7/6/16


"It (2Lite) provides an exceptional value and true reliability at a price point that's hard to ignore. If you need low weight and good living space paired with a true double wall tent, it's a good choice." TreeLineBackpacker 9/19/15


"They're as light as anything else out there, but much stronger, much more livable and, believe it or not, cheaper too." Gizmodo 7/28/15

Gear Institute

"Weighing only 2.7 pounds and packing down smaller than most sleeping bags (12" X 6") this is one of the most packable tents we tested. This is even more impressive considering the livable space it creates." Gear Institute May 2015
