THE EXTENDED VESTIBULE, ANJAN 2 GT was designed specifically as a very light tent for mobile adventures in warmer and snow-free conditions. And while it is indeed very light, it also have unexpected strength. During development, we set up an Anjan GT in our wind machine (a converted snow making blower), and left it for 6 to 8 hours in very strong winds. The Anjan GT stood strong with no problem.
We redesigned the Anjan GT models for 2017, replacing the dual opening pole sleeves and Lock-Tip poles with single opening sleeves and standard poles. To retain the excellent venting effect of having the outer stop short of coming all the way to the ground, we incorporated catenary patterning into the bottom of the outer tent walls, creating permanent gaps to allow full air flow. In addition to its venting effect, the new design is easier to pitch, especially in windy conditions.
The Anjan 2 GT's inner tent has an all mesh door and a large, triangular mesh vent in the rear wall for constant air flow. In very warm conditions, you can fully roll up the rear wall of the outer tent.
Given all of this, the Anjan 2 GT is perfect for 3 season backpacking trips and summer bicycle and paddle tours, and is also well-suited for hunters on scouting trips or on early season, minimalist hunts. It is also ideal for warm weather comfort seekers who want to size up” but still keep the weight very low: the Anjan 2 GT is a surprisingly light – yet huge – solo shelter option for those who hold spaciousness in the highest regard!
