The Poler 2 Man Tent isn’t for serious backpackers. But being serious was never the point. Example one:

Poler’s description reads: The spacious tent is wide enough to accommodate “two big people, or if you’re feeling snuggly, even two big people and a child, or possibly even three smaller sized people. The variations are nearly limitless.”

The Poler 2 Man Tent ($261.95) isn’t like anything else out there because it was specifically built that way — it’s a tent for a new breed of modern camper, one who appreciates functionality but also wants a tightly curated collection of gear that syncs up with his or her personal style.

And the Poler 2 Man Tent delivers on all fronts. It’s a quality multi-season tent, with two doors, two vestibules, fully taped seams, waterproof coating and just one pole that snaps together for quick and efficient set up. But it’s good looking, too; already available in classic camo and orange, Poler has also cut options from its eye-catching Rainbro and Blue Steel Floral patterns. There’s also an eye-shaped window on each tent you can use to peep the stars or the weather.

The Poler 2 Man Tent isn’t light by modern standards, weighing in at 7.5 pounds — but not everyone needs an ultralight option. Think of it more as a weekend-warrior essential, an entry-level tent you’ll end up keeping forever, perfect for last-minute trips to Joshua Tree and modern-looking enough to earn a spot on your Snapchat story. You know you want to.
