Pros Above average space-to-weight ratio, comfortable for two people, guy points, pole configuration and low profile end make it strong in windsEasy to set up, lightweight, packable, comfortableSuperior weight for a dedicated pole tent, easy to pitch, easy entry and exitExceptionally spacious, durable, and weather resistant for its weight, top-tier materials, pitches easily from the outside, spectra guylines with camming adjusters, removable inner tent, reflective pointsLightweight, good ventilation, two doors, two different fast and light pitch options, comfortable airy interior
Cons Delicate fabrics require special treatmentExpensiveExpensive, tight for two people, mediocre ventilation65 ounces can be heavy for backpacking, poor quality stakes, expensiveNot very durable, a bit small for two people, not enough guy lines or stakes included, low quality stakes
Bottom Line Our favorite tent for all your backpacking needs.The Dagger 2 is targeted to the ultralight, feature-loving backpackers seeking both performance and creature comforts in their equipment.A great choice for backpackers looking to minimize weight without sacrificing the conveniences of a double wall tent.A great backpacking tent that will withstand extreme weather conditions.A decent middle of the road backpacking tent for two.
