BreakdownSeek Outside's Silex a large single-person trekking pole tent that can be easily pitched with four primary stakes. It features two doors and two vestibules to give you a ton of room for one person and gear, even though two people can fit you won't be able to utilize the nest. The Silex performs well in high wind situations because it pitches tight due to subtle cuts hidden in the seams. If rough weather is expected it's recommended to utilize all stake loops instead of just the four corners. The Silex is a zipperless shelter so no need to worry about leaking, wearing out, or adding weight to your pack. The Silex is a perfect option for the hunter that's counting ounces to go farther and hunt harder.
For those looking to add a stove to your silex, we recommend a medium stove if you're looking to save weight, provide good heat, and have a cooking surface. If weight isn't as big of a concern, you want more cooking surface, or you already own a larger Seek Outside shelter like the Cimarron, we'd recommend a large stove.
How is this not the number 1 tent in the backpack community? Shipping was quick! I enjoyed doing business with go hunt in the future as a matter of fact I have a silex nest on back order currently
So far it looks like a great product but I haven’t had a chance to even set it up yet from all the snow we have gotten. That said I’ve had other tarp shelters so far this one seems to be a lot lighter. A lot more together by that I mean comes with everything you need to go right out of the box. Looking forward to using it soon.
I bought my Silex for a hunting trip that wound up being canceled. I was able to take it out for a solo overnight this past Friday night up in the mountains at a local state park. I love it. It is light and pitches very easily after a few practice sessions in the yard and watching a few Seek Outside tutorials on YouTube. It also has a TON of room as a solo shelter. As it is a single wall design condensation will be an issue. On my overnight I pitched it flush to the ground which led to no ventilation and frozen condensation in the morning (it dropped into the upper teens that night). That was my own fault. This shelter is just very different than any I've had before and I'll have to work through it. With that being said, it is worth it, and I can't wait to get many years of use out of it.
Excellent product and service from goHUNT per usual. Thanks again!
Easy setup, seam sealing wasn’t too hard. Great backpack tent
