Get the Gear! 3-Season Tent

Deal of the Day on Stoic Arx XL 2
Staff Writer

The Stoic Arx XL 2 is a solid, well-balanced backpacking tent—and right now it's very cheap.

What’s the worst thing about tent camping? That’s right—getting up to pee in the middle of the night. But it’s even worse when you a) have to climb over your unhappy roommate (and fast!) and b) have no overhead clearance in which to execute your awkward, fumbling crawl. This two-person, three-season tent from Backcountry.com’s house brand, Stoic, solves both issues. With two doors and two roomy vestibules, each camper has only himself to blame for knocking back one too many hot chocolates around the fire.

The Arx XL 2 has good overhead space, with a 42-inch ceiling that’s made roomier by a carbon-fiber brow pole. There’s just under 30 square feet of floor space, and the whole shebang weighs in at just a shade over four pounds. Overall, it’s a well-balanced tent (so much so that it got props in Outside’s summer buyer’s guide, and was praised by Backpacker). And now you can get this big house at a small price, while supplies last.

MSRP: $269

Sale Price: $161.40 (40% off)
