The Hexamid Duplex is symmetrical. It sets up with two tall trekking poles. Any of the 4 doors can be opened or closed independently depending on the weather conditions for 360* protection. Close the two upwind doors to block rain spray, leave the two downwind doors open for air flow.

The inner bug net has an 8" tall Cuben Fiber bathtub with rigid corners to keep the corners elevated.

The tent is wider and taller than our Twin tent. It is a better choice for a taller couple, or to share with a friend when you want a little more personal space. Matt is shown in the photos, he is 6' 2" tall. There are doors on both sides, no more climbing over your partner to get in and out!
