Sea to Summit’s Telos TR2 Wins BACKPACKER Editor’s Choice Award

March 9, 2021

Upon first entry into technical backcountry tents, the brand wins the coveted Editor’s Choice Award.

Boulder, CO (March 9, 2021)— Sea to Summit, the global adventure equipment brand headquartered in Perth, Western Australia, is thrilled to accept a BACKPACKER Magazine Editor’s Choice award for the company’s Telos range of backpacking tents. The Telos is part of an ambitious and innovative new lineup of lightweight and ultralight backpacking tents on sale this spring from the iconic adventure equipment brand.

Following three years of research and development, and an unprecedented partnership with tent pole manufacturer DAC, the Telos delivers innovative tent architecture that maximizes the tent’s internal space-to-weight ratio, improves ventilation, and delivers a wide range of functionality and versatility. Sea to Summit will release two lightweight and ultralight tent models, the Telos and the Alto, along with an expansive line of accessories and configurations for Spring 2021.

“We’re honored that our friends at Backpacker have recognized the relentless work that has gone into this project,” explained Roland Tyson, Founder and Head of Design at Sea to Summit. “These tents represent years of hard work by our design team and a lot of collaboration with Jake Lah at DAC. This has produced what we think is a game-changing design with significant improvements that end-users are going to really appreciate.”

The most significant distinction in the technical tent lineup is the revolutionary new, patent-pending Tension Ridge™ pole architecture, alleviating two common pain points of modern tents: livable space and ventilation. The Tension Ridge™ architecture creates high doors and vents, expansive views from inside the tent, and a superior space-to-weight ratio better than any other tent in its class.

BACKPACKER gear editor Eli Bernstein said of the tent, “The Telos TR2 is one of the best-designed tents I’ve ever tested. Its unique shape, smart features, and the combo of livability and lightweight make it a great fit for any backcountry trip.”

Sea to Summit Tents go on sale on in April at www.seatosummitusa.com and at REI followed by exclusive distribution through select specialty retailers around the country in June.
