Hi Guys, we heard a lot of good things (sales pitches ;) ) about the new Easton tents and decided to pick them up. Anyone use any of them yet? We are hoping to put some to use for our spring bear hunts, just wondering if anyone has had one out yet?

They look awesome, just can't justify the purchase yet.

Took out the Easton Kilo 2P last weekend while chasing spring bears. Super nice one man tent (2P tent is more like a 1.5 person tent) The vestibule was big enough to fit my Eberlestock Blue Widow & boots. Plenty of room in the tent for all my camera gear, food, and misc items right next to me. The total weight of the tent with what I brought was 2lbs 8oz. They include a couple extra stakes, patching material, etc. that i left at home. The tent breathes really well, no condensation that I noticed. Temps dipped into the upper 30's on the mountain. The design is really similar to a FlyCreek UL2. The tapered foot design really cuts the wind well and minimizes noise and tent shake in the wind. I'm 6ft tall and was able to sit up in the tent but my hair touched the mesh ceiling. I was impressed with the tents construction.

You could send me the one you used and I could do another write up on it😄

We have been using the Easton Kilo 2P tent on a couple overnighter spring bear hunts here in the mountains of Idaho. Check out a video review we did.

We have been using this tent in one form or another for a couple years. The guy who designed it is one of our clothing designers. The Kilo, is one of, if not the nicest tents money can buy. when it came out last year it won a bunch of awards and deservedly so. For as light as it is it works as well as tents 2 pounds heavier.
