PahaQue Introduces Bear Creek Super-Lightweight Backpacking Tents

Tractor iconWith its new Bear Creek collection, PahaQue now offers super-lightweight one- and two-person backpacking tents: Bear Creek Solo and Bear Creek 200. Backpackers can now experience PahaQue’s commitment to high quality affordable tents that campers have enjoyed for years.

“After years of developing innovative family camping tents, we are pleased to be introducing the first PahaQue backpacking tents,” said Jeff Basford, president. “And we expect to expand this line in the future.”

Both Bear Creek tents feature a full mesh body, designed to provide a wide-open, “sleeping under the stars” feeling. And if the weather is less than ideal, both tents provide complete protection from the elements, and from bugs, too.

With nearly 36 square feet of usable interior space (86”x60” floor), the Bear Creek 200 is a roomy two-person tent, but with a trail weight of only 3.1 lbs. One person sleeps comfortably on the Solo’s 86”x32” floor. It will even fit on an oversized cot for off-the-ground sleeping. The trail weight for the Solo is just 2.0 lbs.

The Bear Creek tents include a rainfly vestibule that adds an additional 6.5 square feet of protected space for gear and other items. And both can be easily set up by one person in less than five minutes. Each includes a high-quality 8.5mm T6 6061 shock-corded pole set for a strong, lightweight frame.

MSRP is $299 for the Bear Creek 200, $225 for the Solo.
