The Portal is our lightest freestanding tent at 2lbs 13oz. It's our statement piece saying you don't need to sacrifice strength, features, or durability to make an ultralight freestanding tent. 

If there's a stronger sub three-pound tent out there, we have yet to find it. By incorporating several technologies from our Expedition Series tents, we were able to give the Portal a degree of stability and weather resistance previously reserved for dedicated "four-season", or more accurately, "one season" tents. 

We designed the Portal with an eye for long-term durability. This means using premium fabrics with good UV and mildew resistance, eliminating PU coatings that break down over time, and adding extra zipper sliders to double the zippers' lifespan. 

The double needle lap-felled seams on the fly do not require seam sealing or tape, and the floor is fully taped.

The Portal can be set up fly-first to keep the inner tent dry in rainy conditions. Instructions are found in the bottom video below.

To prolong the life of your Portal's floor, pick up a Portal footprint. For ultralight weather protection in non-buggy conditions, check out the Portal Tub Floor.

INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: Customer is responsible for all import duties and taxes. We recommend against "UPS STANDARD" shipping because they charge very high brokerage fees. To avoid these fees, select either USPS shipping or UPS Worldwide Express/Expedited service. 

Features

  • Two doors and two vestibules increase livability for two.
  • Pre-installed internal guylines give the Portal great lateral stability for almost no weight increase. Click here for step-by-step instructions to install a second set of internal guylines. Click here to learn how internal guylines work.
  • Our new KickStand vents make ventilation a breeze. Opposing struts on the vestibule doors provide unrestricted cross-tent airflow for excellent condensation management without sacrificing weather protection.
  • High-volume pole structure with a swivel provides well-distributed headroom without the weakness of hubs.
  • Pole swivel connects long poles for easy setup
  • All the pockets you could ever want (two ceiling, two head, two side, one foot).
  • Offset vestibule design eases entry and exit.
  • 10 external guy points provide ample reinforcement. External guy points are matched to toggles to attach the fly directly to the poles, increasing stability.
  • Matching reflective tabs on fly and tent body simplify setup.
  • Can be pitched with footprint (not included) and fly for a minimalist weather shelter.
  • 2-Side silicone impregnated flysheet and PE floor fabric are mildew-resistant and have excellent hydrolytic stability, and will last significantly longer than traditional PU-coated fabrics.
  • No additional seam sealing necessary.
  • Includes 10 DAC J-Stakes

slingfin Portal review
Hey Parsons, glad you like the tent! We actually did try a prototype that used clips to attach the fly to the tent poles, but the clips were much less secure and reliable than the toggles that ended up on the production version, especially when it got windy. Since that's when you really need the fly to stay properly attached, we figured the added reliability was worth using both hands. As for the vestibules, they can indeed be rolled up from both sides! Both sides of the vestibule have a tieback loop for getting them out of the way, and there is a second webbing loop for adding a stake loop to the other side of the vestibule, so either side can be staked down depending on the wind direction.
