  • 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.


    • 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:

    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!

      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!
