For backpackers and campers who appreciate extra square footage and open, airy architecture. The Optic offers a new twist on traditional tents with full-size doors on adjacent sides that zip away to create an open vista. Various tie-backs for the vestibule allow you to customize your view up to 180 degrees. With more space than a standard 2-person tent, the Optic 2.5 easily fits two of you plus whatever else you want to bring along.

      Comments about Mountain Hardwear Optic 2.5 Tent:

      I had the Optic 2.5 set up, with fly and footprint, during a pummeling thunder storm, and the interior was dry as a bone. Not to mention the thing didn't budge in the 25 mph wind gusts. This is indeed a very solid tent, with a perfect amount of space for two with room for gear or a pooch. It is on the slightly heavy side, but when distributed between two people it's not a problem.

          Yes! The photo where it looks like it's just a mesh box is showing the tent with the rain fly off. It comes with a durably waterproof, seam-taped rain fly that you can leave off in bluebird conditions or keep on when the weather is iffy.
