Your one-shelter quiver is here, ready for the full range of 3-season conditions without weighing you down or cramping your space.
We designed the High Route Tent to the specifications of Andrew Skurka, a National Geographic “Adventurer of the Year” and Sierra Designs ambassador, who wanted a single shelter that he could use on all of his solo trips. With its full-sided coverage, palatial interior, porch-able side doors, and removable bug nest, the High Route Tent excels in stormy, buggy, and/or hot and humid 3-season conditions, and can withstand moderate winter weather as well. Skurka found inspiration for this shelter from 11,000-foot campsites in the High Sierra, ravenous mosquitoes in Alaska, multi-day downpours in the Appalachians and Pacific Northwest, and below-timberline winter trips in the Rockies and Minnesota. At 2 lbs 5 oz for the fly and nest, the High Route is still acceptably light for milder conditions, especially for campers who need or want to spread out.
