Six Moon Designs and Tarptent continually compete to make the best ultralight single-walled tent on the market. In keeping with the competition, the updated Six Moon Designs Europa is an improvement over its predecessor and a serious competitor to the popular Tarptent Squall 2. The Europa is exceptionally large for a full-featured two pound tent and has one of highest area to weight ratios we've seen in a tent. At 7.5 feet long inside, the Europa will accommodate the tallest backpackers. Like the Squall 2, the Europa is a complete, full featured tent for around two pounds with bug protection, weather protection, a full bathtub floor and a vestibule you can cook in. It has a fast setup with a single pole and only four stakes. But of course it's not perfect...
