Description

The Telos three-person freestanding tent will radically change your perception of what an ultralight backpacking tent can be. Sea to Summit’s engineers made it their mission to design a tent that is easy to set up and filled with clever functional features. Mission accomplished.

However – there are three additional reasons why leading gear testers have picked the Telos as the new gold standard for tents: space, ventilation and versatility.

DESIGN DETAILS

Tension Ridge architecture delivers a better space-to-weight ratio than any tent in its class.

Powerhouse Collaboration

How it started

"When we decided to take on ultralight backpacking tents, I knew who I wanted to collaborate with—master tent maker Jake Lah.

Jake is the father of modern tent architecture, and his company DAC produces some of the best aluminum poles in the world.

Both of us are driven by producing something better than what’s already out there—and I think we’ve achieved that with our ultralight backpacking tents.

The Alto and Telos deliver exceptional height and space—and are loaded up with unexpected features like adjustable venting and our unique Hangout Mode. They are, quite possibly, the most livable ultralight backpacking tents out there."

-Roland Tyson, Founder & Head Designer at Sea to Summit

SET-UP GUIDE

Frequently Asked questions

Do I need to use a footprint with this tent?

The Telos has a relatively waterproof (2500mm) floor, so can be used in fairly wet (but not downright boggy) conditions without a footprint. However, a footprint will protect the floor from damage on abrasive surfaces.

How is a 'PeU coating' different from a PU coating?

PeU coatings are ether-based. They are much less susceptible to hydrolysis (which is when a urethane coating absorbs moisture and becomes soft or 'sticky', often in storage) - so they are better for rainflys and tent floors.

Will three 79 x 25" pads fit in this tent?

No. The TR 3 was primarily designed for ultralight backpackers who generally use smaller pads - three tapered pads will fit.
