  • EMS Shanty Tent

    Shanty may be defined as a "small, crudely built shack," but rest assured that there is nothing crude about this tent's design! Perfect for anyone just getting into backpacking, the EMS Shanty provides a cozy, easy-to-pitch mountainside home with minimal weight.

    Features/Benefits:

    • Lightweight polyester rainfly and durable nylon tent floor both feature a 1500 mm waterproof polyurethane coating
    • Tent canopy is made from lightweight polyester ripstop and mesh; redesigned for 2013 to have increased canopy coverage for more privacy and better protection from dust/dirt
    • Interior mesh pockets and gear loft help keep the inside of the tent neat and organized
    • Vestibule provides additional covered space to store your gear
    • Set-up is quick and easy: plastic clips attach the tent body to the pole frame; color-coded webbing and buckles ensure everything is properly aligned
    • All seams are sealed for added waterproofness
    • 7000-series aluminum poles provide lightweight strength and durability
    • Includes all necessary stakes for staking down the tent and the guylines

      Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Shanty Tent:

      I have been very impressed with the quality of this tent. Sets up easily and is incredibly sturdy. I have slept spent nights of heavy rain and 40+ MPH winds in this tent I remained warm and dry. While not ultralight, it is quite compact and definitely portable enough to carry on a trek. Great job EMS!

        Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Shanty Tent:

        Took this tent on an overnight camping trip on the AT in CT/MA. It was light and easy to set up. It will hold 2 people but you will be close to the other person. No complaints so far!

        This is a great tent. Used it for the first time and it was so easy to set up. Very comfortable. Loved the easy, no stick zipper. Seemed to have reflective material on the poles made it easy to find at night.
