Clothing- and tent-maker Cotopaxi has been known to stray from the norm, so seeing the B Corp take to Indiegogo for its latest venture shouldn’t be surprising. What is surprising is seeing what the Cotopaxi Inti 2 tent can do. With the addition of a simple alcove, it scales from a two-person tent to a four-person tent.
As with any Indiegogo push, Cotopaxi’s crowd-funding campaign could go either way. But judging by the concept of the tent, it sounds like the campaign could reach Andean heights.
The Cotopaxi Inti 2 tent is a two-person ultralight at its core. However, it also comes with an alcove that snaps onto the tent, essentially doubling the sleeping and storage space. Though it sounds frivolous, it’s a great setup for people whose camping outings vary in size. Why buy a different sized tent for each outing?
You shouldn’t have to. Or at least, that’s the concept behind the Cotopaxi Inti 2 tent.
On its own, the ultralight Inti 2 is billed as a good solution for backpack camping with a partner. If you’re going it alone, Cotopaxi says the Alcove can be used for quick-and-light solo trips. But if you’re headed outdoors with three of your closest friends, you can pack-in the complete system and provide shelter for up to four people.
The image above shows the Cotopaxi Inti 2 tent with its alcove attached, a setup that supports four campers. Considering it supports four people, the configuration is surprisingly light. It weighs just 7 lbs. 1 ounce. The alcove alone weighs 2.5 lbs, while the Cotopaxi Inti 2 tent with rainfly weighs 4 lbs 9 ounces.
That light weight doesn’t appear to sacrifice functionality. The Cotopaxi Inti 2 tent has a 40 nylon bathtub floor, a 20D weatherproof nylon rainfly, and all sorts of mesh for breathability.
