After its debut in spring 2008, The One quickly built a near-cult following for its full protection, spacious design and light weight. In 2011 when the fabric manufacturer changed the formulation so it no longer met our specs Gossamer Gear chose to halt production rather than settle for a heavier, sloppier shelter. After years of searching and an updated design we are pleased to release the new One. Made with a custom-manufactured fabric that is virtually the same weight as the original, yet even tougher and more waterproof! We’ve used the intervening years to our advantage, honing the design to make it even roomier and easier to set up. The meticulous workmanship, including factory-taped seams, reflective pull-outs, robust zippers, and fully-rigged lines means this shelter is ready to set up when you get it, and will give you many years of trouble-free protection. It pitches easily, handles harsh weather with aplomb and is surprisingly spacious inside. The One is a great shelter for solo hikers.
