The Specialist Duo

Ultralight adventurers will appreciate the Specialist™ shelters: the interior space and comfort of a tent with a lower overall weight and more compact size than many bivis. They are the lightest fully enclosable, seam-sealed shelters in their class. Used as intended, a Specialist can be pitched quickly and provide protection against inclement weather and bugs.
