One pound, one pole, infinite possibilities

Single wall, single pole, and made with Dyneema®,  it packs to 14 in (36 cm) and is perfect for any minimalist adventure including thru-hiking, bikepacking, packrafting, and backpacking. It's a 1-person shelter.

The patented Aeon Li features two fundamental design improvements over half-pyramid style shelters. First, the vertical back wall of the tent has a set of Tarptent’s PitchLoc™ foldable corners to increase the interior volume and storm strength of the tent while maintaining a minimal footprint. Second, the PitchLoc™ corners are implemented in combination with a structural awning to increase head/shoulder room and create static equilibrium so that both front doors can be completely rolled back without the need for a forward guyline.


  • Made with Dyneema® composite fabric (DCF) and fully factory seam taped using DCF tapes
  • Premium materials and components: USA made Easton® arch poles and stakes, YKK zippers, Spectra® cording
  • Fits wide sleeping pads up to 25"
  • Vestibule completely rolls back while keeping the interior behind the drip line
  • Magnetic fly door ties for ease of use and security in windy conditions
