Introduced in early 2006, the Tarptent Rainbow (one-person) and Double Rainbow (two-person) are a major departure from traditional Tarptent design. Instead of a front beak entry and headroom-only-at-the-front, the Rainbows use a monopole design with side entry through a vestibule. The design provides abundant usable space and headroom. It is also free-standing if you attach trekking poles to the ends. The Double Rainbow is a two-person/two-door/two-vestibule version of the Rainbow, and weighs 8 ounces more. This review assesses how the design and feature set of the Double Rainbow work for two people sharing the tent.
