Aeronaut 2 is an inflatable pole 2-person tent and one of the most packable 2-person tents available for when pack space is at a premium.

Its packability makes it suited to bikepacking, stuffing easily into a seatpack, but it's equally at home backpacking over multiple days.

Aeronaut 2 is robust and lightweight 3-season shelter. It pitches inner and outer together, inflating in minutes by bike pump (Schrader valve) or foot pump. The circular pole provides a stable structure and creates more interior space as well as a porch for muddy kit. The flysheet is durable ripstop nylon while the inflatable pole can be repaired with any puncture repair kit if necessary.

Sustainability & Care

Caring for your tent

Clean and dry your tent thoroughly after each use. Never use a washing machine, tumble dryer or jet wash to clean your tent. Spot clean with warm water, mild (non-detergent) soap and a soft sponge. Never use bleach, fabric softeners or other household cleaning products and air dry only.

Tent repair

To make your tent last longer, avoid prolonged UV exposure and repair damage immediately. If you are unlucky enough to rip your tent on a trip, use duct tape or StormSure Tough Tape until you have a chance to repair it properly. For more tent repair tips read our tent care and repair blog.

You can repair your inflatable pole should it burst with a standard puncture repair kit.
