Burton After Party Tent: 2-Person 3-Season

Product Details

When the bottle's all gone, the fire's dying, and you can see the faint glow of the sun coming up on the horizon, that means it's time to retire to the Burton After Party 2-Person 3-Season Tent. Designed in collaboration with tent experts at Big Agnes, the After Party has a large vestibule to hold all your gear, along with a gear loft and ample pockets to help you stay organized. Throwback safari graphics give it a fun, festive vibe that will make you the life of the campsite. Reflective details and glow-in-the-dark buckles help you find your tent when you're stumbling back to it in the dark, and mtnGLO tent lighting technology uses LED lights to help you find your toothbrush. An insulated water bottle pocket ensures you have cool water (or a cold beer) ready when you wake up. A mesh screen door and mesh windows promote breathability so you don't wake up drenched in sweat, while the built-in rain fly and waterproof seams prevent leaks when the skies open up unexpectedly. It also comes with a convenient stuff sack that can be worn as a backpack for easy transport.

Price : $ 599.95

Backpacking Tents Checklist

Weight Matters! For two people, any backpacking tent should weigh less than six-pounds...preferably less.
Don't Forget the Bulk. Packing a bulky tent sucks. Make sure it packs down tightly, ideally packing down to about 10x20 inches (smaller is better).
Mesh Matters. As a general rule, the more mesh, the lighter the tent. For warmer three-season use, usually, the more mesh you have, the better. Not only does the mesh save weight, but also allows for better air-flow.
Vestibules & The Rain. An often forget detail about backpacking tents are the vestibule. The vestibule provides a little canopy in front of your tent. Not needed during good weather, but absolutely needed during wet weather. Try to get one that is about 5 sq. feet large, or larger.
Speaking of Rain... Make sure the entire floor of the tent is waterproof. Most are, but if the tent says the floor is just "water resistant"...don't buy it! You'll regret it the first time your sleeping in it during the rain.
Remember the Footprint! Virtually all good backpacking tents also come with "footprints," which are essentially waterproof and tough tarps cut-out in the shape of the tent. Buy It! Not only does it enhance the tent's waterproofing, it also protects the bottom of the tent. Yes, they aren't cheap. But they are a lot cheaper than replacing the tent due to a sharp stick tearing a hole in the floor of your expensive backpacking tent!
