  • VersatilitySuitable for pitching on narrow ledges.
  • PackabilityHeavier side but designed for durability.

Part of Black Diamonds Superlight tent series, the HiLight 2P has been redesigned for a lighter, stronger, more storm-resistant, and more breathable four-season tent, made for up to two people backpacking high into the mountains. It features steep side walls and a high ceiling for extra living space, is made of highly water-resistant, breathable, and flame-resistant fabric, and has a large door with a mesh window for lots of fresh air inside the tent.

Key Features:

  • Flow Manifold Technology - A new, patent-pending feature of certain Black Diamond® tents, flow manifold technology helps draw moisture and stale air out of the tent via interior heat convection and exterior airflow.
  • Lean, Asymmetrical Layout - The 82 x 50, 27-square-foot floor plan makes this tent suitable for pitching on narrow ledges.
  • DAC Featherlite® Poles - This tent uses two and a half lightweight yet strong poles that create twice the strength of a single-pole tent with a drip-free awning.
  • 30D Poly Fabric - The canopys high-tenacity, impregnated polyester fabric retains its strength when wet, and the silicone-impregnated, nylon ripstop floor is extremely tear resistant. A ground cloth (not included) is highly recommended.
  • Reflective Guylines - The updated tent has stronger guylines made of a polyester sheath and Dynex core to minimize stretch.

I had issues with condensation

Originally posted at www.blackdiamondequipment.com on Mar 11, 2024
I have only tested this once on a winter camping in temps in high 20s, no wind, no rain or snow and this is my impression: 1- tent feels very light for a 4 season tent which makes the backpacking more fun. 2- It is very easy and very very fast to set up (on a flat unfrozen dirt ground). 2- it is a single wall tent with poles going inside which means u have to open the door completely to set the tent up which means if it is raining when ure setting it up, the inside of the tent will definitely get wet. 3- I had the half moon ventilation completely open (just the mesh was zipped), the main door was one half open (from the floor up to the top on the side that my head was), and in the morning water from condensation was dripping on my face and my sleeping bag was wet to the touch. not sure how or if I could have reduced the condensation.

Pretty Solid Little Tent

Originally posted at www.blackdiamondequipment.com on Feb 24, 2024
Used this for the first time in over a few climbs in the summer of 2023. My climbing partner and I could fit our two sleeping pads into it but it was close. When one of us moved it shook the entire tent. We weren't able to fit any of our gear in the tent other than a headlamp, smaller items, and pieces of clothing. Hearing that the vestibule makes it a true 2P/3P tent and will probably get that for our upcoming summer climbs. Took this thing up Mt Shasta on a pretty hot July weekend and it did just fine in keeping us as shaded as it could. A few weeks later got up to the Lunch Counter on Mt Adams where we spent the night in a storm with heavy winds and freezing rain. The condensation build-up in the tent was not great as it would often bead up and fall on our faces or sleeping bags, but this is expected with lightweight tents like this. Packs up pretty well in my pack and is not heavy. Ventilation windows make it easy to control the temp (as much as you can). Overall very pleased with the "Blueberry" and look forward to getting it on a few trips this summer with the vestibule.

Came to the site again (with previous good experience from other departments) in need of a tent and footprint-- Elizabeth was great with recommendations and offering more options that stayed within the budget but weren't on the radar to begin with. That and helping with other recommendations generally for hiking/camping, she is greatly appreciated!

I was looking for a weather proof tent for a homeless veteran. I thought I needed 4 season 1 person. Jeffrey recommended 3 season, 2 person since it's California. No snow.
