The Crux X1 Assault takes the 3 pole design of the X1 Strike mountain tent but adds an external porch for storage, cooking and thus increased comfort. The tent has a relatively small footprint so that it will pitch in small spaces between boulders but the addition of the porch means that although the body of the tent is fully self-supporting the porch will need pegging out making it less friendly for use on snow.
The Crux X1 Raid is a simple and lightweight single-skin tent that can sleep two people. It's a conventional two pole, Bibler-style bivvy tent with a design that makes it great for serious high mountain use. It uses Crux's unique X-Tex fabric which uses a coating with activated carbon, this introduces a new and revolutionary means of managing condensation that's greatly superior to conventional breathable membranes.
The Crux X1 Strike Tent takes the design of the X1 Raid but adds an extra pole. This adds slightly more rigidity to the tent but most importantly provides more space at headroom. The X1 Strike also offers more protection from the elements when the door is open, thus increasing comfort on longer trips. This is all achieved without increasing the footprint of the tent, so it still pitches easily in small spaces between boulders and is totally self-supporting for firm pitches on snow.
The Hubba Hubba NX Tent from MSR is the ultimate in lightweight tent designs. Even at its heaviest, its still just a featherlight 1.72kg! With the integrated and adjustable stake-out loops, set up time is minimal and faff free. The two man tent is spacious enough for both users to sit up in and can hold plenty of gear both inside the tent and in each of the two vestibules (porches).
The Salewa Sierra Leone II Tent is an extremely robust and reliable, 2-person mountain base tent for trekking and hiking.
