The new Big Sky International Convertible 2P double wall tent (also available in a four-person version) introduces some new innovations to the expanding line of Big Sky tents. The Convertible is based on the Evolution's proven design and takes it a few steps further. It's called the "Convertible" because it can be configured as either a three-season or four-season tent. And it's designed so the entire tent (fly, body, footprint) can be set up as a single unit. The summer version weighs a few ounces more than the award-winning Evolution 2P, but it's tighter, better ventilated, more wind stable, and more versatile. And the winter version (Big Sky calls it "WinterLite") breaks the five pound barrier for a two-person four-season tent. The Convertible is destined to be one of the most versatile tents around, but be prepared to make a few decisions and compromises.
