Tarptent Double Rainbow
Listed Weight—40 Ounces
Listed Capacity—2 Person
Two door, two person single wall tent made from silicon coated nylon. Suitable for 3+ season use.
Initial ThoughtsHenry Shires makes a fantastic tent and the Double Rainbow is a functional and well-made tent. At 41 ounces the tent is very light for a two person tent without the expense of cuben fiber. With two it has just enough space, but it’s a palace when going solo. I seam sealed the tent which took about 45 minutes and the tent has kept me very dry every time it has rained so far. Just like any other tent there will be condensation on the ceiling when the conditions are right.
Pros— Weight, Space, simple setup, well made
Cons— Not freestanding unless you have trekking pole extenders, stuff sack isn't durable

Long Term ThoughtsAfter about 45 nights in this tent I am more than satisfied. The tent is easy to setup, easy to take down and pack even in the rain. Trekking poles can be used to support the tent for extra ventilation or as supplemental supports to carry the snow load or handle high winds. JimmyJam made me a replacement stuff sack from cuben fiber along with a stake bag.
Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.
