HiLight 2 Person Camping Tent
|Black Diamond HiLight 2-Person Camping Tent - The HiLight Camping Tent by Black Diamond is a spacious one-person lounge or a cozy two-person assault-style tent. The HiLight uses a two-and-a-half pole design for steep, water-shedding walls and a wide, high ceiling. The full side-opening door has a built-in no-see-um mesh window, and coupled with another window on the opposite side, the HiLight offers excellent ventilation. The canopy is built with highly water-resistant and breathable NanoShield fabric. For keeping track of the little things, the HiLight has two interior mesh pockets.
This tent is super-light and sturdy. I have used it on a carved out snow slope at 12,000 feet. It is really more of a 1.5 person tent. If you plan to sleep two, plan to leave the gear outside. As a one-person alpine assault tent, this tent will serve you well. The side door that fully opens is a huge plus. The only change I had to make in my normal snow camping set up is that snow gets on the poles before you put them in the tent. Not a big deal, just be aware that with the poles on the inside, it is a little different.

My back country ski partner and I chose to replace our 7 pound 2 oz, 49 square foot tent with two of these. We lost 1 pound 10 oz and picked up 5 square feet of space in the deal! The HiLite’s performed fantastically on the Sierra High Route this spring, standing up to gusting winds and snow fall. Setting up with the interior pole system is a little awkward until you get your system worked out. For those of you that are 6 feet or taller, I think this tent will be too short for comfortable use. There was notably less condensation with the HiLight’s compared to our other tent, and having your own private space was kind of nice.
