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.
Excellent product and service from goHUNT per usual. Thanks again!
Easy setup, seam sealing wasn’t too hard. Great backpack tent
Try setting up in your yard first so you aren’t figuring it out after a long hike. Very easy setup just took a couple tries my first time.
Very lite setup great quality couldn’t be happier. Getting a nest as soon as in stock. Don’t like having my expensive lite gear in the dirt all night.
I used an ultra lite survival blanket as a floor shelter which worked well and weighed next to nothing in my pack but I’ll sacrifice the pound of the nest to keep everything more sanitary.
Very pleased with the easy setup. Was able to fit two big dudes, both 6’2” and 200lb+ with gear in the vestibules. It was cozy and we used every inch, but it was not uncomfortable. Love the dual vestibules for easy access and not having to crawl over your hunting buddy.
