The Aries is a free standing pole system. It has a top cross pole which allows for more head room and interior space. With the mostly mesh wall design it allows for great ventilation for warm summer nights. This free standing tent is enhanced with 2 doors for easy entry and 2 vestibules for gear storage. Extra-large #8 zippers make opening and closing the doors and vestibules a breeze. The Aries has 7000 series aluminum poles that are strong and lightweight. Assembly is really easy with the tent clips that just snap in place over the poles. The poles are all shock corded together as one continuous system. With a factory sealed fly and floor seams, you’re sure to stay dry in rainy weather. The polyester fly and floor are urethane coated, factory sealed seams for maximum weatherproofness. The fly buckles to the tent, offering a much more secure attachment when compared to elastic cord. All these combined features, make the Aries a great choice for any backpacking trip.

Fantastic tent I am an Eagle Scout with a lot of camping experience. This buy was made after an extensive amount of research, and I couldn’t be happier with it. It is defiantly a 2-person tent and ONLY and 2-person tent. This also means keeping all your gear in the vestibules, which isn’t bad, as long as you have an additional tarp to keep everything clean and dry. If you are looking for a lightweight, easy setup tent, this is the one. Everything is color coded so that even the most amateur camper can put it…

This tent is perfect for backpacking This tent is perfect for backpacking, especially if the weight is split between two people. It’s just the right size for two. All the features about this item are amazing! The space for gear is great as well. We recommend either a tarp or footprint for the two doors.

Needs one little hack … Great tent. Love the system of color coding the pole ends and tent corners. After struggling with the fly and putting it on backwards a number of times, I thought, why not color coat the fly as well. So a little paint, marker, etc. on one grommet of the fly and its corresponding grommet on the tent and no more hassle. You’re welcome, folks at ALPS. Feel free to send me a check.
