Mountain Hardwear Stiletto 2009

The Mountain Hardwear Stiletto tent weighs 1450g; small packed size; large porch for gear storage and cooking; mostly mesh inner for ventilation; good living space; two-way outer zip for venting options. But design is fussy; pitching is inner-first and time-consuming; wind resistance could be better.

Verdict: The Mountain Hardwear Stiletto is a complex tent, and slow pitching isn’t great for the UK’s climate.
