Tarptent’s popular Double Rainbow tent has been updated for 2019 to include features that will be attractive to a wider range of users. A wider top strut increases head and shoulder room, higher edges on the bathtub style floor reduce splash back from rain, and now the top strut pole and arch pole are separate and foldable to make packing the tent that much easier, particularly for bikepackers. Both vestibules use waterproof zippers and Tarptent has added some more interior storage options. The 2019 version can still be set up in in freestanding mode using the optional straight poles (or trekking poles) as well as in “porch-mode” for maximum ventilation, even in rainy conditions.
The 2019 Double Rainbow weighs 1191g (42 oz) with a floor width of 50″ (127cm). Ordering opens September 19th, 2018 on Tarptent.com.
