Shrouded in intrigue and mystery, the story on this tent keeps changing. At the beginning of the show, Easton didn't want to draw too much attention to it as it was just a proof of concept. By the middle of the show we were told that it had just been given the green light for production, but the price was yet to be set. By the end of the show someone from product development said that is was just a prototype, and not likely to see the light of day. Whatever the story is, the technology is pretty cool.
The Ultra Light Expedition tent is a single-wall, two-man, two-door, self-supported, dome-style mountaineering tent with dual removable vestibules. The main body and floor of the tent is constructed out of cuben fiber, and the roof panels of the tent are constructed out of a fabric called Cubic Tech eVent. The details on exactly how Cubic Tech eVent is constructed is fuzzy at this point, but the gist of it is that it is a non-woven-spectra fabric minus the mylar of Cuben with an added eVent membrane on one side. The poles are external, and carbon fiber. The claimed weight is 2lbs 9oz (1.18kg), and the price is unknown, but probably astronomical considering Sierra Designs had a production ready cuben tent on the show floor with an MSRP of $1800 (without any high-tech eVent fabric).
