Features of the ALPS Mountaineering Lynx Tent

Backpacking tents are often more demanding than conventional tents. Hiking requires a tent that is lightweight and offers resistance to the elements in nature. Most backpackers want the minimum form of protection over their heads: something that is lightweight, uncomplicated to set up, compact, and waterproof. The ALPS Mountaineering Lynx 1-Person Tent is really easy and quick to assemble and disassemble, is sturdy, well ventilated, and will keep you dry through the night.

One of the great features of the tent is that it is designed with a vestibule large enough for storing all the extra camping gear. The convenient entrance covers an area of ten square feet. The area covered by the actual tent is twenty square feet. Other amazing features of the tent include:

  • Offers sufficient room for one person to sleep comfortably
  • Pole clips makes it easy to assemble
  • Durable and quality sealed rain fly that buckles to the corners with adjustable tension straps
  • Factory sealed polyester taffeta floor and fly provide more weather protection
  • Sealed seams inside the tent lock out moisture and water
  • Polyester fly stays taut and resists UV damage
  • One door and vestibule
  • Good quality zipper
  • Poles are made of aluminum with a diameter of 8.5 mm
  • Vestibule provides extra weather protection
  • The walls are mostly mesh and increase ventilation
  • The ultra-light and free standing tent is ninety inches in length, thirty-two inches in width with an interior height of thirty-six inches
  • Total weight is four pounds and four ounces
  • The tent includes guy ropes, 7075 aluminum stakes, mesh storage pockets, and gear loft

The weather-proof ALPS Mountaineering Tent is equipped with a rain tarp. Not only is the tent designed to keep the water from entering, but the mesh walls and two vents prevent condensation inside the structure.

Finding a tent site

Campers should always take the Leave No Trace principals into account. For a good night’s sleep in the wild, select a site that will look untouched once you are gone. Look for a flat area that is above the flood zone of a river or the high-tide mark of the ocean. A storm upstream a river can cause flooding. Avoid pitching a tent near a river or on a flood plain.

You want to make sure your tent does not get blown away or collapse if the wind picks up. Ensure the structure is well anchored by using pegs and guy ropes. Tent pegs can be tapped in with a rock. If the area is an exposed area such as loose sand, hard-packed snow, or bare rock, you can create anchors with rocks, skis or poles.

Avoid camping in the middle of a game trail or near standing water that breeds mosquitos or other bugs. You should try not to camp near berry patches. Bears might come looking for food in those areas.

Best 1-person camping tent

ALPS Mountaineering Lynx 1-Person Tent is currently the best model in its size compared to many other brands. The tent is small (made for one occupant only) and strong. These features will help you save weight and space in your pack.

With its aluminum poles, hi-tech materials, and advanced design, ALPS offer you a reliable shelter in the wild. It is always a good idea to learn more about the extremities of the weather before you head out on the trails.

Try to get as much information as possible about the temperatures, wind, snow, or rainfall you may experience. According to experienced hikers, the higher up into the mountains you go, the greater the extremes. If there are no trees, you may be entering a world of extreme wind and cold.
