Ultralight and Spacious Tent Design

The X-Mid Pro 2+ is the ideal tent for partners who want a superlight yet stormworthy backcountry palace. It expands the award winning X-Mid Pro design into a larger 2+ size that weights just 19.2 oz (545 g) - making it the world's lightest tent that can accommodate two wide pads. More than just an amazingly light and spacious tent, the X-Mid Pro 2+ is also impressively capable thanks to the Dyneema® composite fabrics (DCF) and X-Mid geometry which is more weight efficient to provide greater stormworthiness while retaining the simplicity and user friendliness the X-Mid tents are revered for.

SPACIOUS

The X-Mid Pro 2+ takes the X-Mid geometry (which naturally boosts interior volume) into a larger form factor to create an oversized 2P tent that is palatial for two people and optimized for sleeping two people in the same direction (head to head).

Compared to the regular X-Mid Pro 2, the floor has been widened from 46" to 52" (1.32m) to accommodate all wide (25" / 64 cm) pads. Any other tent near this weight can only accommodate wide tapered pads and not wide rectangular ones like will fit here. The already excellent headroom has also been increased with a taller 49" (1.24 m) peak height. This adds headroom and also steepens the end walls to increase the useable length for hikers up to 6'6". We also reduced the rotation of the diagonal ridgeline to create more even headroom on both sides to optimize the tent for two people sleeping in the same direction. Compared to competing A-frame style tents, both sides of the X-Mid Pro 2+ have substantially more head clearance.

What hasn't changed are the dual generous vestibules, which are large enough to fit the biggest packs and conveniently place the main area beside the door instead of blocking it.

STORMWORTHY

The X-Mid Pro 2+ provides the excellent stormworthiness the X-Mid tents are highly regarded for. It combines ultra strong Dyneema composite fabric with an ideal shape for handling wind and snow loads because 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 has a robust structure with 2 poles that makes it stronger than similar pyramid style tents, yet still pitches solidly with as few as 4 stakes. In stormy conditions, the tent can be reinforced with peak and side panel guyouts and up to 12 stakes along the base.

The X-Mid Pro 2+ is designed to provide a more comfortable experience in tough weather rather than just survive it. To achieve this it has a long list of protections including protected doorways (to keep falling rain out), a fly first pitch (to keep the floor dry), a wind stable pitch (not vulnerable to collapse at any steps), and a full coverage fly that extends low to the ground (blocks drafts, spindrift, and rain splatter) yet can be lifted higher for increased ventilation. Competing tents trim away the lower part of the fly to save weight but it leaves you most exposed to drafts and rain splatter. The X-Mid Pro 2+ further makes tough conditions more liveable with its spacious interior, large practical vestibules for storing wet gear, and dual peak vents that minimize condensation.

USER FRIENDLY

The X-Mid Pro 2+ has a focus on simplicity and ease of use because when conditions are tough you want a tent that works effortlessly.

Most notably, the X-Mid Pro 2+ has the same simple pitch the X-Mid tents are highly regarded for. The rectangular base is intuitive to stake out and the tent can be pitched with as few as 4 stakes. There are no odd angles or distances to estimate, no struts to complicate the process, and no need to measure the pole heights because the fly will naturally limit them to the correct height.

Once pitched, the ease-of-use continues with magnetic door toggles on the fly, along with magnetic door toggles on the inner doors (an industry first). Entry is easy with large doorways that are not blocked by trekking poles (like most competing tents). Instead, the X-Mid puts the vestibules beside the door in an easy to reach spot which also creates a shorter reach to close the fly. The X-Mid Pro 2+ also provides a tensioned floor that lies taut and wrinkle free, dual doorways, dual vestibules, and premium zippers that operate one handed.

Dual Magnetic Toggles

Dual magnetic door toggles allow not only the fly doors to be easily secured but also magnetically secure the inner doors (an industry first).

Doorways

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.

Generous Space

A generous 52" wide floor fits two wide rectangular pads, while the larger size and X-Mid geometry give palatial interior volume.

Peak vents

Dual peak vents minimize condensation.

QUALITY

In addition to the highest performance design, the X-Mid Pro has higher quality than any other tent Dyneema Composite Fabric (DCF) tent. We build these tents at the most experienced tent factory in the world for DCF using hot bonded technology that gives stronger seams than quicker cold taping or sewing methods. Our production process also includes a proprietary pre-shrinking process for DCF so the shape is more stable over time and is avoids shrinkage over time which affects other DCF tents. Additionally, we use thoughtful design and reinforcements to avoid stressing the fabric diagonally (on the 'bias') which adds costs but prevents premature degradation.

We also go a step further in many other ways including tighter tolerances for panel dimensions than other brands, a long list of additional requirements and checks, and pitching each tent twice for quality inspections before it ships to you. This premium quality gives the X-Mid Pro 2+ a substantially higher cost of production than competing tents.

PATENTED GEOMETRY

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

The result is a tent that is a joy to use because it avoids all the common pitfalls of trekking pole shelters such as a complicated pitch, mandatory guylines, numerous required stakes, poles blocking the doorways, struts that make it awkward to pack up, vestibules that put the main area in front of the door, and an awkwardly long reach to close the fly doors.

The palatial X-Mid Pro 2+ is the world's lightest tent that can accommodate two wide rectangular pads, while also being highly stormworthy and user friendly. It is the ideal tent for everything from a thru hike of National Scenic Trail to a traverse of Alaska's Brooks Range.

So I’m sorry to say that my experience with my new durston gear has been much lower than my expectations had been. I had to replace my durston xmidpro2+ two weeks into my hike! I also bought 2 kakawa 55 backpacks z one of which the frame has come through the bottom of my pack. I’m disappointed to say the very least! I am hoping that someone from durston will reach out to me and help make this right. Thank you.

Hi Heather,

Sorry to hear about these issues. For your backpack, I see the frame is not installed properly. It looks like the frame was removed and then when it was reinstalled, it was not installed in the lower set of frame channels so the tips are poking into the backpack. We have a tag inside the frame pocket that shows how to properly install it.

For the tent, I am not sure what is happening here but if you can send an email to support@durstongear.com we are happy to help resolve this issue issue.

Thanks for using our gear,
Dan

Great tent: extremely light and very easy to pitch

Just did a first hike and experimented a bit with the pitching hight. Very roomy and practical tent, space for two with backpacks. Experienced rain and relatively low temperatures at night for time of year. Although condensation occurred, the water dripped outside the groundsheet en it didn't bother us.

I've recently purchased the X Mid Pro 2 tent and I have to say now I know what dreams are made of! The tent is easy to pitch and with some adjustments you can achieve the perfect pitch. Definitely a top-notch product and as an engineer I can see the design and quality show through. Also, it's nice to know Dan is reading and refining....always.

Thanks for the kind words! I'm glad the tent is looking good :)

I love this tent

I’m 5’9” and my husband is a size 14 6’3” human and this is a fantastic fit for us. Surprising amount of head room and the vestibules are giant. This is my first trekking pole tent and I am never going back. So much love and super easy to pitch once you get the hang of it.

I will echo the other posters who mod for a loop at the top of the tent. Even so, this is a 10.

Super light and straight forward setup. One does need to stake out perfect 90 degree angles to get the best pitch but otherwise it’s quick after a long day on the trail. Really like the gutter system and tub floor bungee / tension system.
