If you need a lightweight, one person tent, the Mystique 1 will be a great choice for you. With all the combined features and affordable price, this tent is going to be hard to pass up. The non-freestanding 2 pole design, allows the Mystique to be the most lightweight tent in our line. There is one door and one vestibule, which forms a "porch" to give you a place to store extra gear. The ventilation is fantastic with the large mesh sides and the end mesh door panel. The full coverage fly keeps you dry even in the biggest rain storms. A vent is placed on the end of the fly to increase ventilation even further. It has the option of being zipped open or closed, depending upon the weather. Instructions are sewn into the tent storage bag so you never have to worry about not having them with you.

Bought this tent several yrs. ago & am well pleased with it. Great for back country hiking, lightweight, & is easy to set-up. Opens on either side. Great one-man tent.

This is a great one man tent. I love the fact that someone over 6ft can actually fit in this tent. Most tents are just way too short to fit someone over 6ft. So that fact alone makes it a great tent in my opinion. It seems to be a very well made tent with good components. The only thing I don't really like is that the vestibule is very small. You can only get a pair of boots under cover. I gave the tent 4 stars only because of the small vestibule. I would definitely buy this tent again. It is a great tent for the money.

I purchased this tent for cycle camping and backpacking. It's light and compact, and inexpensive. The front entrance and large vestibule allow plenty of room for either my panniers or backpack. At 5'4", I have plenty of room to sit up and even move around a bit.

ALPS Mountaineering Logo

From Dennis Brune, Owner: I started ALPS Mountaineering, a small company located in rural east central Missouri, with the mission of "providing more gear for more people". We offer performance oriented packs, tents, sleeping bags, furniture & air pads. All of our products are “consumer designed” for comfortable enjoyable trips that have tough, durable construction for a lifetime of use, and while the products are great, the prices are even better. I have been working in the outdoor industry since 1978 in a variety of design, sales, and marketing positions. A lot of my prior outdoor experience came from running the Kelty brand, which also marketed packs, tents, and sleeping bags. In 1994, Brian, the oldest of our 3 children, was about to enter middle school, so I left Kelty because I wanted to have a more flexible schedule to allow me to be more involved in my family’s activities.

As our business has grown, so has our need for good, qualified staff members. We started filling those needs in 2003 when Brian graduated from college with his degree in marketing. While my intention never was to “only hire friends and family”, I continued the trend by next hiring my wife, LaRayne. When Adam, our second son, graduated in May of 2006, also with a degree in marketing, we also hired him. In the summer of 2006 we needed even more sales and marketing help, so we next hired our daughter-in-law, Sarah Beth. Our youngest child, Sarah Kristin, graduated from Mizzou in May of 2009 with her degree in communication, and we also said to her, “come on board!” As I’ve happily and very proudly told several people, we’ve “redefined the family business”. Of course we have plenty of “non-Brune” employees … Debbie, Karen, Phil, Sean, Laurie, Zach, Tracy, Jeff, Doug, Spencer … and we consider them to be part of our extended “business family”. While we believe in making exceptional products, we also think it’s equally important to have outstanding employees … and I can say that we’re doing a great job of both.

Regarding our products, the challenge we have is to convince you that we can deliver products that offer great designs, are loaded with plenty of features, are made with excellent quality … AND are also affordable. In our current economic situation, it’s extra important to evaluate all of our purchases. We think if you do your “homework” and fairly compare our products to those of our competitors, you’ll see we can offer you the best true value.
