Sea to Summit set out to change every aspect of the user experience. It wasn’t just shaving some weight, it wasn’t just about space or ventilation, it wasn’t just about ease of use or setup, it was about all of it and they’ve changed the tent game. And it’s a tent that I guarantee you will have the most enjoyable experience using. — Randy Propster, Backpacker Get Out More TV Host

REVOLUTIONARY TENSION RIDGE ARCHITECTURE

Where most tent poles angle down, the Tension Ridge angles up to achieve exceptional height and space

Tension Ridge Benefits

SUPERIOR VENTILATION

Unlike most, our Apex vent is at the highest point of our tents—the perfect position to expel moist warm air and minimise condensation.

HIGH CEILINGS

Tall campers rejoice! Tension Ridge creates greater height across the whole tent—not just in one spot.

TALL DOORS

Get in and out of your tent with ease and enjoy expansive views outside.

Vertical Walls

No aggressively tapered walls here — just plenty of room for thicker modern sleeping mats

More Space

Tension Ridge architecture delivers a better space-to-weight ratio than any tent in its class.

Superior Ventilation

An advanced venting system improves airflow and reduces condensation.

Unmatched Versatility

Multiple configuration options means our tents adapt to the weather or your activity.

Hangout mode

Hangout mode

Our Telos tents feature Hangout Mode, allowing you to convert your tent's fly into a semi-open shelter. Perfect for cooking, socialising and staying undercover.

Simply set-up with trekking poles or the Hangout Mode Pole Set.

Design details that make all the difference

Quick connect tent feet

Attach and tension the fly one-handed — or adapt your tent set-up.

Lightbar

Connect our light-diffusing tent pole bag to the ceiling, add headlamps and let there be light!

Dac poles

The gold standard in tent poles — our tents combine DAC Featherlite NFL, NSL and PRESSFIT sections.

Ground control light tent peg

Lightweight, strong and versatile — our unique tent pegs maximise grip in almost any ground.

Fairshare storage system

Split the load of your tent within your backpack or between your fellow campers.

Storage buckets

Our stuff sacks clip inside your tent to create handy storage buckets.

Powerhouse Collaboration

Sea to Summit + DAC

Jake Lah

Founder & Head Designer, Dac

Roland Tyson

Founder & Head Designer, Sea To Summit

When we decided to take on ultralight backpacking tents, I knew who I wanted to collaborate with — master tent maker Jake Lah.

Jake is the father of modern tent architecture, and his company DAC produces some of the best aluminium poles in the world.

Both of us are driven by producing something better than what's already out there — and I think we've achieved that with our ultralight backpacking tents.

The Alto and Telos deliver exceptional height and space — and are loaded up with unexpected features like adjustable venting and our unique Hangout Mode. They are, quite possibly, the most liveable ultralight backpacking tents out there.
