The Fitzroy’s four Easton 7075 aluminum poles and seven pole intersection keeps the tent at as low a profile as possible to maintain stability and strength in the most intense of weather conditions.
At 6 pounds, the Fitzroy is one of the lightest tents of such strength as you will likely find. The four-season design, combined with plenty of floor space and two-door construction ensures optimum ventilation and easy access during all seasons.
The doors feature pole-supported awnings and zippered vents to give you full control of the ventilation. The three-point equalizing guy lines are exactly what you will need for high winds and internal mesh pockets hold your items, both dry and organized.
The Bibler Fitzroy is a classic model that has become well known in its lifespan as a strong and roomy option for backpackers and mountaineers alike.
The setup for the Fitzroy is simple, though not one or two step, so you should practice once or twice at home, especially if backpacking in extreme conditions.
The tent does not come with seam sealing either, but once you have done so, it remains waterproofed and is fairly comfortable for most outings.
Condensation is non-existent and indoor space is optimized by the pole design, allowing for easy storage and hanging of items.
