What the Community Has Said

It’s easy to see why the X-Mid a fan favorite. It’s reasonably lightweight, simple to pitch, and has plenty of space, including two doors and vestibules—a luxurious touch for a one-person shelter.

Best Backpacking Tents of 2021

The Durston X-Mid 1P combines the luxuries of a double-wall tent and the simplicity of a traditional tarp, making it one of our favorite shelters that we've tested to date.

Labeled as a Best Buy

This is a well-designed tent made by someone who has hiked a lot of miles. It’s well-engineered for livable space, relatively easy to pitch, and the double-wall design is a key factor in reducing condensation. We love the ease of use with the two doors and vestibules.

Top Pick 2021

The X-Mid 1P is a double-wall trekking pole tent for one person that is simple to set up, well made, and quite affordable. Weighing under 28 oz, it's also quite lightweight and a really great deal for backpackers who want to reduce their gear weight.

“Exceptionally high quality. Field performance was outstanding…an excellent size-to-weight ratio for a dual-pole, double-wall, two-person tent….Overall, it has simply been a joy to use.
