Description

Jaran 2 is an ultralight, 2-person, 3-season tent with twin porches striking a balance between weight, durability and space.

Weighing only 2.04kg, Jaran 2 has a semi-geodesic geometry with a horizontal supporting crossbar for superb stability in windy conditions. A thicker flysheet increases durability. Damp pitches are no problem with the bathtub style groundsheet and there's plenty of ventilation thanks to the incorporated mesh sections. These also keep bugs at bay.

Jaran 2 has twin porches (126 cm x 72 cm) which give ample space for storing kit and make Jaran 2 easy to share with a companion.

Buddy up.

Sustainability & Care

Caring for your tent

Clean and dry your tent thoroughly after each use. Never use a washing machine, tumble dryer or jet wash to clean your tent. Spot clean with warm water, mild (non-detergent) soap and a soft sponge. Never use bleach, fabric softeners or other household cleaning products and air dry only.

Tent repair

To make your tent last longer, avoid prolonged UV exposure and repair damage immediately. If you are unlucky enough to rip your tent on a trip, use duct tape or StormSure Tough Tape until you have a chance to repair it properly. For more tent repair tips read our tent care and repair blog.
