While we've received positive feedback from the Gossamer Gear community about our ultralight tent shelters, The One and The Two, we've been aware that these size options don't quite cut it for everyone. That's why this year, we're stoked to announce our latest product launch, The Ten.

The Ten is an absolutely massive tent that weighs in at just 18 ounces. Designed to fit -- you guessed it -- ten backpackers, this tent is great if you're looking for a shelter that can:

  • Fit your entire Covid pod
  • Sit on a shelf in your house to provide hope for the day when it's safe for mass tent gatherings again
  • Give you the feeling of being on one of those wooden bunk beds in an AT shelter without actually having to stay in one of those shelters
  • Offer an extremely spacious backcountry vessel for one where you can stare into the void of existence and, as Hafiz would advise, "don't surrender your loneliness so quickly"

Similar to The One and The Two, The Ten also doesn't require separate tent poles. You can easily set it up with just four sets of LT5 Three Piece Carbon Trekking Poles -- and, really, as many stakes as you want!

Some of our product testers have already provided awesome feedback on what The Ten has been like for them. Here's what they've been saying:

"The Ten is essentially just a super elongated version of The One or The Two. Basically, it's a dream come true."

"I feel like I'm living in panoramic photo of The One. It's sick!"

"It's one of those tents I never knew I needed and am still not sure I do. But I'll never go back to my old tent!"

Our team over at Gossamer Gear put a lot of thought into the careful design of this complete behemoth, and we hope it shows.

So, grab yours today and get ready to hit the trail with up to ten of your Covid-free friends! Finally, make sure to share photos of your adventures with The Ten with us by tagging @gossamergear and using the hashtag #takelessdomore. Happy trails!
