The opinion of Aventure Nordique
The Sea To Summit Alto TR2 is the mesh version of the Atlo range (also available in full fabric). The mesh inner allows the tent to be ventilated and saves weight. This chamber is very well suited for use in summer and in hot and dry environments.
The Alto TR2 has a large interior volume thanks to its pole system. The Tension Ridge top pole, in the shape of outstretched wings, allows for large, high and wide doors. Combined with a semi-self-supporting dome structure, its vertical walls give way to a very generous passenger compartment. In order to achieve a minimalist weight, the tent has slightly smaller dimensions in terms of floor area.
The Tension Ridge also improves the ventilation of the tent to eliminate the risk of condensation. Openings are placed along the centreline and bottom ventilation is provided from underneath the outer doors. Depending on the weather conditions, the windows can be opened or closed.
The installation is simple and classic. However, it is also possible to erect only the flysheet to provide a large shelter, or only the inner for nights under the stars. When it rains, the flysheet can be put up first.
The storage bag is divided into 3 compartments, so that the weight can be distributed between people, but also to separate the inner from the flysheet (useful when the flysheet is not completely dry). It has been designed to be used as a storage pocket in the tent and as a ceiling lightbar (to be combined with its lamp).
As an option (sold separately), a "Lightfoot" floor covering the inner or a "Bigfoot" floor covering the inner and apses can be purchased. A ceiling storage net is also available.
