These lightweight 2 person freestanding tents are the real deal! Light, compactable, and up to the challenge of any weather or region, the CrossBow 2's are a FANTASIC investment. The WebTruss (the crisscross on top) keeps the poles in place and provides tremendous strength and stability for minimal weight. The tub footprint and full coverage flysheet keep the water out and provides vastly improved protection over standard flat footprints. The WebTruss can be set up using a top bow pole (included), vertical strut poles, or trekking poles. Here are the differences in the 3 tents
