⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Light, big and cool.

"Used this shelter on an overnight through arid badland backcountry at Grasslands National Park East Block in southern Saskatchewan. I set up this shelter to wait out the hottest part of the day in around 10 minutes with little practice. Ventilation is excellent and the shelter performs well as a sun shade in arid summer conditions when you need to conserve water. The shelter is easy to see from kms away for away-hikes in open terrain and performs well in moderately high winds with good anchors." - Kyllo

Closeout Lunar Duo Explorers

We are clearing some space for new Lunar Duo's that we expect to arrive shortly. This is your chance to get a great deal on this shelter.

2023 Lunar Duo Explorer are first quality goods, we are marking them down to clear some space.

2022 Lunar Duo Explorer have an arched pole sleeve that we have determined might have been sewn too close to the edge of the material so the pole sleeve could rip inside. These have not been repaired or modified by us after production so please do not purchase this if you do not want to potentially deal with the issue.


Two Person Backpacking Tent

Spacious. Secure. Ultralight. The Lunar Duo – Explorer redefines what a single wall, ultralight tent can be.

With an unsurpassed space-to-weight ratio, it’s no wonder the Lunar Duo - Explorer is affectionately referred to as The Backcountry Palace. The pitch design provides a lot of interior space, and that doesn’t even include the two vestibules. It’s the perfect tent for anyone looking for livability without greatly compromising weight.

*To completely repel water, shelters need to have sealer applied to the seams before use.
*Shelters including a seam sealing service may not ship immediately.
*Stakes and Support Poles Sold Separately


Three Words Describe the Lunar Duo:

✓ Spacious

✓ Secure

✓ Ultralight

This tent is at home in a campground as much as a top a windswept ridge and large enough for four adults to sit and play a game of cards. No matter how bad the weather, you can batten down the hatches for a comfortable nights sleep. Lunar Duo offers no compromises despite the fact that it’s less than half the weight of your traditional tent.

✓ 6-in mesh lining above the bathtub floor increases ventilation and keeps you further from the canopy walls, so you stay nice and dry.


The Lunar Duo offers the most interior room of any tent in its class and weight range. Dual curved poles located on either side create a unique arched roof. Combined with a tent height of 45 inches and width of 54 inches leaves so much interior space you've got room to spare.

With dual oversize vestibules, each person has plenty of weatherproof storage for gear. The Lunar Duo's two vestibules can be deployed to multiple positions. When fully open, it provides maximum cross ventilation, keeping you cool and those pesky mosquitoes at bay. They can be raised or lowered, ensuring that you can achieve the optimum configuration for the weather you're likely to encounter. The Lunar Duo's vertical sidewalls prevent rain falling into the tent.

Like all our shelters it is designed to be pitched with adjustable trekking poles or with our fixed length aluminum or carbon fiber poles (sold separately).


Dual Vestibules provides excellent gear protection.

High Vents minimize condensation formation.

Dual Entry ensures you have an available door.

Easy Tension Adjustment makes re-tension your tent easy.

Floating Canopy allows the canopy to be set to different heights.

Dual Hiking Pole Support

Dual Cargo Pockets.

Extremely Easy Setup in less than five minutes under any conditions.
