Product Description

Now you can have a full-featured ultralight tent on a budget! Our Arches trekking pole tents incorporate spacious designs, two side-entries, high-quality materials, and flexible pitching options to make them one of the best ultralight options available.

We've done our best to make this an outstanding backpacking tent:

  • Our lightest option, the one-person Arches 1P comes in at a trail weight of only 2 lbs. 6 oz. while the larger two-person Arches 2P comes in at a trail weight of 2 lbs. 14 oz.
  • Dual side-entries (even on the Arches 1P) make it easy to get in and out of your tent. Open both sides for amazing views and cross-ventilation.
  • The extra-long 90-inch tent body and dual vestibules offer plenty of space for even the tallest backpackers and their gear.
  • All of the high-end features in an affordable package; two-way inner and outer zippers, mesh pockets, dual vents at the ridgeline, eight Y-stakes with Dyneema guy lines and adjusters, 5,000 mm silicon/PU waterproofing with fully-taped seams, and the list goes on. Why pay more when you can have it all!
  • Use the included footprint, rainfly, and stakes to quickly set up a minimalist shelter. This even lighter alternative is perfect when you don't need the protection of a full tent.
  • We used high-quality rip-stop fabrics to make sure this tent will last you for years. If you do run into any issues, our outstanding customer service and lifetime warranty will be there to save the day!

Note: Trekking poles (sold separately) are required to pitch the Arches 1P and 2P tents. A length of 120 to 135 cm is recommended, with longer lengths providing more headroom.

All international orders are shipped via DHL Express with all Duties Paid. This means that all import taxes and duties are prepaid. No additional fees will be collected from the customer.

Most international deliveries are made within 4-6 business days, although more remote locations can take a couple of extra days. All international shipments are fully tracked from door-to-door.

If your destination is not listed above, we apologize that we're not able to accommodate direct shipments to you. However, some of our customers have successfully used 3rd party international parcel forwarding services.

What is your return/exchange policy?

We offer 60 days to accommodate any returns or exchanges of non-defective products. In some cases, we can accommodate returns and exchanges past 60 days, but these will be decided on a case-by-case basis. Any returns after 60 days will only be offered store credit.

What items are eligible for a return?

To be eligible for a return and refund, your item must be unused and in the same condition that you received it. It must also be in the original packaging.

If you've purchased a tent or tarp and would like to set it up in your backyard, please do so on a dry, clear day to keep the tent/tarp as clean as possible. Pitch the tent/tarp on dry grass if possible and use other stakes if you have them available. This will keep the tent/tarp and stakes in an unused condition to facilitate a return.

If items sent back for a return/exchange show clear signs of use (excessive dirt, animal hair, etc.), the return/exchange will be rejected and the items will be shipped back.

Are shipping fees refundable?

Shipping costs are non-refundable. If you receive a refund, the initial cost of shipping your order (if any) will be deducted from your refund.

Is return shipping free?

No, the cost of return shipping will be subtracted from the refund amount. We will provide a prepaid return label for the return shipment. The cost of return shipping will be provided to you along with the prepaid return label. 

Please note that due to our shipping volume, we have access to significantly lower shipping rates than retail. As a result, the cost of the return shipping will be much lower, resulting in a higher refund.

How do I initiate a return/exchange?

To initiate a return/exchange, please email us at with the following information:

  • Your original order number
  • The items to be returned/exchanged
  • The reason for the return/exchange

Once your return/exchange request is received, we will provide a prepaid return shipping label along with the cost of return shipping. If you decide to proceed with the return, please use this label to send the items back to us. We will only accept returns that are shipped via the prepaid return label. This ensures that the shipment will be trackable and insured.

Once the returned items are delivered and inspected (please allow 1-2 weekdays for inspection), we will issue your refund or exchange.

When a refund is processed, a credit will automatically be applied to your original method of payment and you will receive an email notification. Please allow 2-5 business days for the credit to appear.

What about international returns?

If you are an international customer, the same 60 day return/exchange policy applies. To initiate an international return, please contact us at the email address above and provide the same order/item to be returned information. We will then coordinate with you on the return process, which will differ slightly depending on your exact location. The return instructions above only apply to US customers.

Great Tent But Not Great For Thru Hiking

I used the Arches 2p on the first 250 miles of the Colorado Trail. Over all this is a great tent. I would overwhelmingly recommend this it, though I wouldn't take it on a thru hike again.

Here are the things I loved:
It kept me warm and dry through a massive thunderstorm.
It is really tough.
Condensations was not an issue for me almost at all.
Really liked that it was double walled.
Great quality for the price.Seriously an awesome budget option.
So. Much. Space.

The things I was less than happy with are some what personal preference. They may not be applicable to you.

The things I didn't love:
I don't know if this was just me, but there were no instructions? I had to kind of figure out how to put it up by trial and error. Even just a video on the product page would have been helpful. Because of this I almost certainly set this tent up incorrectly.
It didn't come with guy lines for the side loops to hold the rain fly out.
The one of the adjuster on my rain fly broke which made it pretty difficult to adjust the rainfly.

I have a few other things that I would personally change, but are not actually issues with the tent.

Need for a better receiver for the trekking poles

I wish there was a pocket or a better area for keeping the top of the trekking poles in the rain fly. There is a tendency for them to slip out and move to the non-reinforced area. Otherwise the tent is great.

love Paria products whole heartedly, but please provide instruction videos on the website so i dont tear a tent haha!

Peter Igrenyi (Wigan, ENG, GB)
Amazing tent

Great tent, very easy to put up, and most spacious 2 person I've been in.
I AM 6'3 so floor length was important and is plenty long for me. Love the headroom.

I did swap the cordage on the footprint and inner tent to make Set up easier.

Tent is an amazing value for money.

Kevin Ayers (Wheeling, WV, US)
YES, i put this same review on 3 products. BECAUSE THEY ARE WORTH MENTIONING!!

So, I'm 100% sold on Paria products, PERIOD!!!!! Every product I've purchased, this siltarp included (also Archers 1p, Zion 1p) are amazing for the price. (yes I know the siltarp is not in the photo, couldn't find a good one) What all you get, the HH rating, and the weight to cost ratio, is the best of ways! I was a competitive cyclist for years too and often times we are captivated by big companies and their latest greatest, not to mention them trying to get you to be a weight weenie. But just like how all the big youtubers seem to have recently started talking more about cost, to comfort, to experience ratios more so than the idiocies of "base weight", I too have come to that conclusion just as a did on a bike. And that's where Paria comes in. You are not going to find better product, for the price, with more bells and whistles than Paria. Sure, every company or product may have a quirk that you'd wish was different or would like to change, but let me tell you that there very few sacrifices for, again, the price, weight, and quality of Paria. And I have yet to even experience customer service, which everyone touts is amazing. Anyway, Devin, from Backcountry Exposure turned me on to this company and I'm so glad I subscribe to his channel. The dude is proper when it comes to reviews and is a great resource for researching. I just wish others like Dan, Justin, Eric, Steve,Maranda, etc, would feature Paria MORE, because they too are AMAZING resources, that collectively should be utilized to research products. To be fair, Dan did a while back, but from a budget perspective, AND the amazing quality, I think Paria is overlooked way too often. Anyway.......well, that was a rant, but a real, honest review, from me, some nobody not looking for anything in return, just wanna be candid in hopes that others see this and think, "wow, finally a review I can get behind". Cheers everyone, from the Appalachians!
