The 2024 X-Mid Pro 2 has arrived. It is now even lighter to become the world's lightest two person tent. Other 2024 updates include magnetic toggles on the inner doors, more affordable pricing, and a new DCF floor option.

Pinnacle of Ultralight Tent Design

The X-Mid Pro 2 is the pinnacle of ultralight tent design. It combines our maximally weight efficient and stormworthy X-Mid geometry with Dyneema® composite fabrics (DCF) and a singlewall design to create a tent that is both incredibly light and incredibly capable. The 2024 version weighs as little as 18.2 oz (515 g) making it the world's lightest two person tent, while also bringing unprecedented stormworthyness, simplicity, spaciousness, and build quality to the super ultralight tent niche.


Until the X-Mid Pro 2, if you wanted a 2P tent for a little over 1 lbs you had to settle for something cramped, delicate, and/or lacking in weather protection.

The X-Mid Pro 2 changes that. It provides a spacious interior for two adults with a generous 90″ floor length, steep end walls to maximize useable length, and best-in-class headroom enabled by the unique geometry with a diagonal ridgeline and opposite diagonal floor. It fits hikers up to 6’4″ (dual occupancy) or 7’0″ (solo occupancy).

Also generous are the dual 11.6 sq ft vestibules which are large, tall, and conveniently place the main area beside the door instead of blocking it.

Want it even more spacious? Check out the X-Mid Pro 2+.


The stormworthiness of the X-Mid Pro 2 is excellent thanks to the extremely strong Dyneema composite fabric, high performance shape, and a full coverage fly that can extend right to the ground to block rain splatter and drafts yet can be lifted higher for increased ventilation.

When faced with wind and snow, the X-Mid has the ideal shape since the geometry gives all of the panels a consistently moderate slope. There are no horizontal roof panels to catch snow, nor vertical side panels to catch wind. The tent pitches solidly with just 4 stakes peak and side panel guyouts can be added along with 8 extra stake points around the base should the conditions warrant.

More than just surviving, the X-Mid Pro 2 keeps you comfortable in tough conditions due to the protected pitch (keeps the floor dry during setup in the rain), protected doorways (keeps the rain out even when open), and dual peak vents which minimize condensation.


Highly Recommended

"If you want the highest-quality and best-performing ultralight shelter on the market, the X-Mid Pro should top your list."

Backpacker Magazine

A Titan of Featherweight Design

"Simpler than just about any other trekking-pole tent. It’s hard to beat the simple but effective design."

The Trek

Simply the Best

"Simply the best tent...an impenetrable bunker, super high quality, easy to setup. We couldn’t have been more pleased."


Gear of the Year

Durston’s lofty claims, especially compared to some other great shelters, are surprisingly valid...it proved to be outstanding in its class.

Adventure Alan

Our Favourite Super Ultralight Tent

"No other tent on the market gives you this much livable area for so little weight....an incredible tent design"

Backwoods Pursuit

An Absolute Gem

"Deflects wind, rain, and even snow with ease. Extreme attention to detail make it a joy to set up. I’m a HUGE fan."


The X-Mid Pro retains the user friendliness that the X-Mid tents are highly regarded for. Unlike most trekking pole tents, the rectangle based X-Mid has a simple 4 stake pitch with no mandatory guylines, no measuring or estimating odd angles, and no struts.

Once pitched, the intuitive minimalism continues with magnetic door toggles, doorways that aren’t blocked by poles, vestibules that put the main area beside the doorway instead of blocking it, a tensioned floor that lies taut and wrinkle free, and one handed operating zippers.

The X-Mid Pro also has a remarkably small packed size because of the efficient use of materials, less bulky floor material, and lack of struts which complicate packing up the tent.

Magnetic Toggles

Magnetic door toggles with pull tabs provide easy one handed-operation.


Unlike most trekking pole tents, the doorways are large and not blocked by trekking poles.

Full Coverage Fly

The fly extends low to the ground to block drafts and rain splatter, yet can be raised for more ventilation. Other tents cut away the bottom of the fly to save weight but it leaves you more exposed.

Tensioned Floor

Small corner struts and cords tension the floor so it lays taut and easy to clean. Competing tents hang the bathtub floor from its top edge (like a bag) which saves weight but is more prone to wrinkling and sliding around.

Peak vents

Dual peak vents minimize condensation.


In addition to the highest performance design, the X-Mid Pro has industry leading quality. That starts by using premium materials like Dyneema, and assembling them at the most experienced tent factory in the world for DCF.

We use hot bonded construction to create Dyneema seams that are stronger, cleaner looking, and better retain their strength in extreme temperatures. We also use a proprietary pre-shrinking process for DCF so that the shape is more stable over time and won't shrink to create wavy zippers.

While this premium quality gives the X-Mid Pro a higher cost of production than comparable tents, it is affordably priced because we sell it to you direct with only a modest markup.


The X-Mid shape has been developed from the first principles of geometry to be as weight efficient, simple, and functional as possible.

That includes avoiding all the common pitfalls of trekking pole shelters such as a complicated pitch, mandatory guylines, poles blocking the doorways, and a lack of interior volume.

Read the story about how the X-Mid geometry was developed:

As one of the lightest tents in the world yet remarkably spacious and capable, the X-Mid Pro 2 is the ideal tent for everything from a thruhike of the Continental Divide Trail to bikepacking across Southern America.

World's Lightest 2P Tent

Dyneema® Fabric

Dyneema® Composite fabric (DCF) is extremely strong and highly waterproof (8,000mm).

Dual Doorways

Dual doorways are zippered, not blocked by trekking poles, and keep rain off the floor even when open.



The X-Mid Pro 2 provides unprecedented stormworthiness, user friendliness, and space for a superultralight tent, while also weighing less than all other 2P tents. To illustrate this, the table below compares the X-Mid Pro 2 to what is seen in competing tents.

Great tent

I was blown away by the weight and how much smaller it packs than my Tarptent. Very easy to setup and very roomy.

Simon Hemer
Super functional, lightweight and high quality

Just back from 10 nights trail use including heavy rain. The xmid pro gave a fast and simple pitch, plenty of room in the wet, kept the heaviest rains out, and was easy to manage condensation with its elegant and tight panels. For a DCF tent it’s very compact and the weight is impressive.
It’s my second xmid (I have a solid) and I’m completely happy to have invested in this lighter sister.
The tough question now is to figure out which one to take where.

John Lovett
Great tent

Have yet to try the new tent in weather… but it is so easy to set up, so we’ll designed and so so lite… looks to be very well made and not as “delicate “ as I thought it would be

The best

this is my fourth durston tent and third pro-2 (second was the magnet upgrade, and this third was a return/replacement due to a dcf blemish). durston has been absolutely amazing since my first purchase on massdrop years ago. you're not just paying for the thoughtfulness of the product, you're paying for the ethos of the people behind the company that makes it. they really care about what they make and it shows in how they take care of us as customers.

Randy Gamble
I love this tent

Extremely easy to set up. Plenty of room for me, my dog, and pack (room to spare). Durable and easy to pack away. I love this tent.
