    Product Description

    Lyra is built to provide lightweight, freestanding and affordable shelter for 2 or 3 people (depending on the model) in 3 seasons for backpacking and trekking.

    Pole segments are unified into a continuous, shock-corded array for rapid set-up. The convenient clips allow quick and simple attachment of the canopy.

    2 doors and 2 vestibules allow easy entry, exit and gear storage. Endostructure poles (poles on inner tent) allow easy set-up without the fly in dry conditions. Multiple set-up and deployment modes allow Lyra to adapt to changing conditions and personal preferences for optimal comfort. It can be set up completely freestanding and without an outer tent.

    • Versatile setup modes

      Optimist Mode, Stargazer Mode, Breeze-Way Mode, and Privacy Mode.

    • Easy setup

      Pole clips secure the tent to the hubbed, shock-corded pole set for easy setup without the fly. Micro-hubs strengthen intersections and eliminate wear of fly at critical points.

    • Tie-back loops & toggles

      Tie-back loops and toggles hold the fly doors rolled and open for maximum ventilation; ties at the apex hold the rolled fly in position in Stargazer Mode.

    • Water resistant

      Floor is made with 68 D polyurethane-coated polyester taffeta with factory-taped seams to keep water out.

    • Convenient storage

      2 pockets at the head end provide convenient storage for small items. A small, overhead pocket secures a headlamp and diffuses the beam to evenly light up the tent.

    • High stability

      12 included Swiss Piranha tent pegs offer excellent holding power at a very low weight. Guylines at each end of the sleeping section increase stability in breezy conditions.
