Ultralight, single-wall shelter built for weight conscious backpackers, thru-hikers and mountain adventurers.


The Black Diamond Distance Tent with Adapter weighs less than two pounds and packs smaller than a water bottles so ultralight backpackers and minimalist thru-hikers can take it anywhere. This 2-person, 3-season tent's nonfreestanding design includes a DAC pole that adapts to accommodate Black Diamond's trekking poles for a simple setup, even in windy conditions. While packable and ultralight, the high-tenacity fabric boasts improved strength that doesn't stretch when it gets wet. There are vents at the peak and foot to cross-ventilate and amplify airflow. Black Diamond reinforced the guylines with Dyneema to ensure long-lasting durability.
