The ultralight 30 denier silicone impregnated Cordura fabric is waterproof and incredibly strong, and the minimalist design sets up using 2 trekking poles. 2 guyline points provide additional stability in strong winds, 2 mesh vents and 2 door vents provide ventilation and reduce condensation.
The sides can be opened for maximum ventilation using 4 trekking poles and the floorless design is ideal for dugout basecamp in snow conditions. The Element 2 can be combined with modular components to create a year round shelter system.

Rab Carrington built his company on two things: A deep understanding of what climbers and mountaineers need, and a commitment to practical gear that works.
Throughout much of the 1970’s Rab could be found on ground breaking expeditions around the world. From winter climbing in Scotland and the alps, to expeditions in the Himalaya, Rab gained first-hand experience and understanding what climbers need from their kit.
In 1981 the native Scotsman moved to Sheffield to set up Rab. By first deciding how gear should be used, then designing for that use, Rab was able to produce specialist down sleeping bags and jackets with fresh dimension suitable for high performance mountaineering gear, offering products better than any other available at the time.
Jump ahead over 25 years and Rab are still at the forefront of innovation and performance. From their super lightweight bivi bags to tough, waterproof and breathable eVent™ jackets, Rab have created some of the most hardwearing and specialist kit in the world. Rab are still to this day designed and produced within the UK, using the highest quality, lightweight materials to create award winning products; and are ceaselessly committed to Rab’s exacting standards, ingenuity and pioneering spirit.
