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.

  • 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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Nice Tent

Setup the first time was a bit tricky as I hadn't used a trekking pole tent before, however Paria was able to refer me to a setup video that answered my questions. Tent also now comes with additional elastic cords to swap out for the dyneema on the corners (which many people have issues with) I didn't have a problem with the dyneema so I left it for now. Nice to have the option though. Customer service was extremely responsive to my questions about the setup. Tent was missing a peg and they immediately sent a replacement, no hassle whatsoever.

Rain and Snow

Fall and winter trips in Northern Ontario. Held off rain and survived the weight of two inches of wet snow. Obviously some condensation inside but it was surprisingly weather proof. This is worth every dollar I saved by not buying an expensive tent.

Great tent!

I got the 1-person tent. This was my first ever tent that I took on a backpacking trip. The first time I tried to set it up in my yard it was a little tricky to figure out how to get it all set up the right way. The loops on the ground sheet and the loops on the tent don’t line up. But I read a comment that says to slip the tent loops through the ground sheet loops and then stake the tent loops. That worked great. Rain sheet was easy to attach to the tent body and easy to stake out and set up. One other thing I loved was that there are two zippers on the door. That way you can just unzip the bottom while leaving the top zipped making it harder for bugs to get in. I have not yet used it in the rain, but based on how well the ground sheet kept moisture off the bottom of my tent I think it will do alright. It’s super roomy, too. More like a 1-1/2 person tent. Cons are the inner pockets - they’re more like flaps in a couple of the corners. Stuck my glasses in there but they didn’t stay put. Overall, great tent! Looking forward to more trips.

Great Backpacking Tent

Used for one outing, so limited data. Measurements and weight were accurate as advertised. Slept in about 20 deg weather with decent humidity levels. Stayed warm and dry. Ice formed on the outside of the tent for reference. I honestly did quite a bit of research and this tent matches up with other name brands that cost double the price.

Great Bang for the Buck!

In my opinion, the Arches 2P tent is an excellent value. The main aspects of the tent that I appreciate are the double wall construction for managing condensation, the interior space (53 inches wide), and the balance of weight and cost. My son and I took this tent on a hike through the Grand Canyon. The Arches tent was structurally sound, and it held up well to the moderately strong winds we experienced. Furthermore, we had plenty of room for both of us, and our gear fit nicely under the vestibules. Not many trekking pole tents are 53 inches wide! As mentioned in one of the other reviews, the tie-outs on the ground cloth are not long enough to reach the stakes if the tent corners are fully stretched out. I replaced the Dyneema lines that came attached to the ground cloth and tent body with some shock-cord, but I did leave the Dyneema on the fly. You can find a lighter 2P tent, but you will either be paying a lot more for DCF or giving up some interior space. The Arches 2P had all the features I was looking for.
