      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

***FS Mt Hardware EV-2 Tent ***

Recommended Posts

The year 2000 when I was going to use the tent I was dx with multiple myeloma cancer. My past & present cancer treatments have eliminated any future expedition climbing for me and a need for the tent. Made up my mind I must see that the tent needs a “home" where the tent can be used.

Overview

The Mountain Hardwear EV2 is loaded with high tech materials and design: strong Atlas Scandium SL pole set with new floating connectors, low-stretch VX-O2 panels follow pole lines and reinforce side panel tie outs. The idea is that together they create a strong truss-like system to support the tent in high winds and heavy snow loads. The main canopy is a waterproof/breathable, fire-retardant (nice!), pre-stretched polyester.

The EV2 may be the lightest two-person, three-pole mountaineering/expedition tent on the market. Many new high tech (and expensive) materials contribute to weight savings. The EV2, even with its few flaws, is our first choice for a fast and light ascent tent. The Atlas Scandium SL poles and low-stretch reinforcing panels on the canopy create a surprisingly solid structure for the weight. Five vents and the waterproof/breathable, fire retardant canopy fabric do a credible job of managing condensation. The EV2 is one of the easiest tents we've pitched, mountain or otherwise. With the built-in vestibule, we found the tent had more than enough room for us and our gear to comfortably wait out a day long Patagonian storm of high winds with horizontal rain, sleet, and snow.

 

In Brief

• Just over 5 lbs with vestibule - possibly the lightest tent in its class

• Roomy for a two-person mountaineering tent with good area to weight ratio

• Easy and extremely fast to pitch with exoskeleton poles and clip attachments

• Strong, light Atlas Scandium SL poles with field serviceable floating connectors

• High tech fabric/design: low stretch structural panels follow pole/stress lines. Fire retardant waterproof/breathable canopy fabric of pre-stretched polyester (meets fire resistant code for tents!)

• Five vents and waterproof/breathable canopy fabric provide good condensation resistance for a single walled tent

• We were unable to get a completely taut canopy pitch

• Less resistant to heavy snow loads than heavier four-pole mountaineering tents (especially true with the older Easton pole set)
