Durston Tents, spearheaded by the visionary Dan Durston, is based in the Canadian Rockies. Durston equipment is meticulously crafted with a singular focus: to enhance the outdoors through highly functional ultralight gear.

Dan Durston, a seasoned hiker, gear aficionado, and adventurer of over two decades, brings a wealth of experience to the table. His passion for pushing the boundaries of outdoor exploration is palpable, with hundreds of nights spent under the stars and a repertoire of technical gear expertise garnered through active participation in ultralight online communities and gear development for various outdoor companies.

Not content with the status quo, Dan's journey into gear innovation began long before the inception of Durston Tents, marked by pioneering endeavours such as crafting one of the first Dyneema tents in 2009. His thirst for adventure knows no bounds, evidenced by his remarkable feats including traversing the Pacific Crest Trail and pioneering new routes in the rugged terrain of the Canadian Rockies.

At the helm of Durston Gear alongside Dan is his wife, T, an accomplished hiker and trail runner in her own right. Together, they form a formidable team dedicated to product development, customer support, and ensuring the highest standards of quality in every piece of gear they offer.

Durston Gear stands out for its commitment to constant innovation and improvement, informed by a combination of technical expertise and user feedback and with a focus on simplicity, functionality, and lightweight design. 

The X-Mid series, hailed for its groundbreaking design and exceptional performance, has garnered widespread acclaim within the hiking community, becoming a staple on renowned trails like the Pacific Crest Trail and Appalachian Trail. Building upon this success, Durston Tents has expanded its lineup to include the X-Mid Pro series with DCF fabrics which continue to redefine the standards of outdoor gear.

Driven by a philosophy of quality over quantity, Durston Tents releases only a select number of innovative products each year, ensuring meticulous attention to detail and rigorous testing. As they embark on the journey ahead, the team at Durston Gear remains steadfast in their commitment to pushing the boundaries of outdoor exploration and equipping adventurers with gear they can trust.
