The HAWK II - Four Season Mountaineering Tent 

Stocked and Ready to Ship. 

At Redverz, we like options.  When factors like snow load and variable ground conditions demand a four season mountaineering tent Redverz has you covered. The Hawk II is a 2 person, 4 season, free standing mountaineering tent.  Designed for year round use, the Hawk II is ideal for winter camping, backpacking, mountaineering and alpine conditions. 

Like all Redverz tent designs, The Hawk II comes with the inner sleeping bay already clipped into the outer fly.  Set up, even in poor conditions, is flawless.  The inner tent is shielded from the elements by the outer fly as the two are erected together in one step. The tent has two separate vestibules plus entry and exit doors at each end affording campers unfettered access to the tent and stored gear. Each vestibule has two panels which can be rolled back individually on either side or left completely open with both doors rolled back for maximum ventilation in sweltering conditions. Driving rain or snow?  Cinch it all down for unbeatable protection against whatever Mother Nature throws at you. 

Top quality components and purposeful design ensure peak performance.  DAC poles and pegs are strong, lightweight and dependable. The repair sleeve is included. YKK zippers are consistently reliable. Four pockets offer ample sleep area storage and if you need more an overhead gear loft is included in the price.  We said we like options....this one is on us.

Footprints, also referred to as ground cloths, extend the life of your tent floor and protect against damaging abrasion.  We recommend using a custom-cut footprint designed specifically for the floor plan of your tent. The custom fit of this footprint effectively avoids water collecting between the tent floor and the foot print during rainy conditions and extends the entire length of the tent to over both vestibules.  Upon take down, use your footprint as a clean surface to fold and roll up the tent.

    Great Tent

    Posted by Jack on 25th Jul 2017

    Just got back home from a 1600+ mile mostly all dirt circle through Montana, Idaho, Wyoming and back to Montana. Just wanted to let you know how well your new Hawk tent worked for me. First, I really like that I can fit the tent in my pannier. It will fit upright with the poles or I can take the poles out and lay it down, which is what I did since the Mosko moto bags have so many pockets to stash the poles. Laying the tent down in the bag, I could put my exped synmat 12 LXW on top of the tent then my bag. Very handy being able to pull the bag off the bike with all my sleeping stuff and carry it to wherever I want to set up. Pretty damn nice when you get to camp and it's raining out to be able to get the tent set up without the inside getting wet. I.E. not having to put the fly on after you get the inner tent set up or having to spread a ground sheet out because they are already attached. So you can either roll the tent out and throw your gear in it then put it up, quickly I might add slide 3 poles in the sleeves and it's up, or put it up and throw your gear in. Either way your gears dry and the inner tent is dry, win win. Obviously I did get rained on, several times. Once it was a pretty good down pour, no worries kept nice and dry, even got a good nap in listening to the rain. Had some pretty good wind also again, no worries. I also like having enough room in the vestibules to put my gear, bags, boots, jacket, helmet out of the weather. Having two separate doors on each end is great. Lots of options for ventilation, getting in and out etc. All in all very happy with your tent, and I know it is going to last me a long time. Thanks for a great product

    Field Tested: Redverz Hawk II Expedition Portal

    Posted by Christophe Noel on 24th Jul 2017

    When Redverz entered the market a few years ago they made a big splash with their Atacama tent, built to house a pair of sleepy travelers as well as a full-sized motorcycle. I can see the advantages of such a structure, but I’m oft inclined to distance myself from my machine after a long day in that saddle. For that reason alone, I was excited to see them introduce a more traditional tent in the Hawk II. The Hawk II fits within a category of shelters with few peers. By the numbers it’s suitable for all four seasons, uses three aluminum poles, fits two people, and is made well enough to survive one full lap around the globe. It’s a fortress in foul weather, a cozy retreat on warm nights, and sturdy enough to be home away from home for months on end. The strength of the Hawk II comes from a proven architecture which places the DAC Featherlite poles in the outer rainfly layer. Beneath the fly, the tent body hangs from multiple attachment points. The optional ground sheet further encapsulates the tent body helping to sequester it from exposure to weather. When pitching or striking the tent in rain or snow, keeping the tent body always enclosed is a key benefit of the exoskeletal design. With a symmetrical floor plan, setup is made easy with no guessing which is the front or back. The three pole sleeves are color coded to match the corresponding pole segments and can be inserted from just one side. This eliminates the need to orbit the tent repeatedly during the pitch. I also appreciate how the captive ends of the pole sleeves are adjustable. This permits the poles to be secured without a struggle, and tightened accordingly when in place. Start to finish the entire setup, including placement of all 12 stakes for the tent and guylines, takes less than 10 minutes. That’s not as rapid as some tents, but given the level of protection it affords, I’ll gladly take the extra setup time. What I like most about the Hawk II are the dual vestibules, each featuring full-sized double doors. This allows both sides of the tent to be exposed for maximum air pass-through. It also allows one door to be opened, and one left closed, to offset wind direction. For my solo escapes, I often use one vestibule for gear stowage, the other as my entry and exit point. When my wife joins me, we each have our own vestibule with ample room for gear without blocking our respective exits. When weather blows, forcing the vestibule doors closed, four shrouded vents near the peak of the rainfly help circulate air to reduce condensation. The only drawback I noticed when sealed up tight in the tent in warmer temperatures is the lack of ventilation lower in the tent structure. On the upshot, the full coverage rainfly offers formidable top to bottom weather defense, even in the worst driving rains. One of the finer refinements are tiny pockets at the anchor points which can be used to store the lines when they’re not in use. That helps declutter the tent during setup and break down. It’s obvious a great deal of design attention went into the rainfly layer, but the inner tent is equally well engineered. The two doors are not only massive, they’re made of a combination of solid ripstop nylon and fine mesh sewn into vertical sidewalls to maximize interior space. The rounded roofline creates an open space with gratuitous headroom and no perceptible feeling the walls are closing in. That sense of spaciousness is augmented with a brightly colored inner fabric. I loathe dark tent walls as they make for gloomy places to dwell when sitting out a storm for hours on end. Another perk of the design is a minimum of seams in the tent canopy. It sounds silly, but that simplicity keeps the interior from appearing busy, or cluttered. That suits my fastidious nature quite well. There is generous real estate inside the Hawk II for two sleepers. A 72-inch pad fits with lots of room to spare at the head and foot. One of my favorite attributes of the interior is the enormous gear loft and mesh pockets at all four corners. I apparently like to surround myself with lots of stuff, so I love storage options. Another nice touch, one rarely seen, is a full groundsheet which extends into the vestibule areas. I appreciate the ability to step out of my boots onto a nylon carpet before diving into my cozy abode. It’s also a nice place to store wet clothing, stinky socks, or my helmet, without having everything plopped in the dirt. It’s details like those which make me realize how much time Redverz founder Kevin Muggleton spent living in the Hawk II. Rounding out the finishing touches, the Hawk II is packaged with a dozen high quality aluminum tent pegs, a pole splint, and fabric swatches for repairs. The tent guy lines are made of heavy cord and the pegs and poles have their own dedicated storage pouches. Everything fits in a properly sized stuff sack with compression straps. If I had one very minor quibble, it is with the fabric used for the stuff sack. I wish it was more robust and made of the same fabric as the 70-denier floor. Stuff sacks seem to suffer an untimely demise, particularly during long motorcycle voyages. The wrap up Over the span of 20 years I’ve evaluated well over a hundred tents. I’m a tough critic and prone to scrutinize the most inane details. Those details often make or break a tent and Kevin, the man behind the brand, is clearly aware of the importance of the little things. I was impressed with the heavy duty 70-denier floor fabric, the quality of the D33 1.5-millimeter mesh, DAC Featherlite poles, and other premium materials. The 48-inch peak height is tall enough for even big guys to sit up and the sub-7- pound total weight is impressive considering the size, features, and robust construction. If I was headed off on a year-long overland journey to the far flung corners of the globe, I’d have no hesitation grabbing the Hawk II and calling it home. I’d feel confident it would serve me as well in the Sahara as it would in Siberia. https://expeditionportal.com/field-tested-redverz-hawk-ii/
