Outdoor Vitals Fortius 2P Tent – First Look
What it is : This is a trekking pole tent from the company called Outdoor Vitals. This is new to the market and I have received countless requests to review it.
Thanks to all of the requests, I purchased this tent so that I can give you all an Agenda Free Review.
I’ve heard that there are some videos on this tent already but I’ve been told that they can’t be trusted.
That’s why TOGR exists; I’m going to give it to you all straight. The good, the bad, and I’ll show where a product excels and where it falls behind.
Does this tent look familiar in terms of design?
I would say yes! What do you say?

Overall this looks to be a very nice tent –
Setup is fairly straight forward – if you have ever setup a trekking pole tent before, you’ll make easy work of it.
Quality looks to be very good but not great – I did find a few loose threads which is slightly disappointing especially when some very inexpensive tents have exceptional fit and finish. This is a pricey tent
Materials – with this being a 15D sil PU Nylon, I am concerned about stretching especially when it’s out in the rain. It will stretch, it will sag but the question is, how bad will it be? The materials for this tent are higher end and they should be for the price
Weight : The weight for this tent is very good but something that you have to remember is that trekking poles are required for the setup – if you carry trekking poles with you when you are out backpacking, you’ll appreciate the lower weight but if you don’t carry trekking poles then the weight of this tent isn’t all that impressive.
Looks – This is an awesome looking tent – I love the blue color with the yellow accents.
This tent looks to be a fairly close copy of the Zpacks Duplex tent – the duplex is an amazing shelter using some of the most advanced materials in the world, it’s insanely lightweight (around 1lb) and is also insanely expensive…not everyone needs or wants to spend that sort of money on a tent.
That alone makes this a very interesting tent.
I like what I see here but I would say hold off on purchasing this tent for now, at least wait for me to rain test this tent. I think it will be waterproof but I’m concerned about the stretching that is going to happen with this material. It will stretch, it will sag but how much? We will find out very soon.
Coming up I’m going to perform a rain test with this tent and I will do my best to get that up next week; rain is forecasted so make sure to subscribe
