Preorders just opened up for the SlingFin Portal 2 freestanding tent, which is now available in a muted green and brown colorway for bikepackers who like to keep things stealthy. Check it out here…

The SlingFin Portal 2 is a lightweight two-person freestanding tent that weighs in at 1.3 kilograms (2 pounds, 14 ounces). It incorporates features from their burly Expedition series tents for better durability and strength, has two doors, two vestibules, vents on both sides of the tent, several interior pockets, and 10 external guy points for when extra stability is needed.

The Portal 2 has the the option of being set up with a groundsheet and fly as a minimal shelter, if need be. The 10D Nylon 66 Ripstop fly and PE floor fabric are mildew-resistant and are said to last significantly longer than traditional PU-coated fabrics. While the fly seams are highly water resistant, SlingFin suggests the three seams directly beneath the tent poles should be seam sealed for maximum waterproofness in heavy rains.
