The Tarptent Stratospire Li design is intended to improve the tent’s breathability in a straightforward yet clever manner. The first step is to double the holes that were formed for the trekking poles’ support as air vents. This converts to two top vents.

The second feature is a vent that is held up by carbon fiber shunts in each of the vertical corners. Additionally, the front vestibule allows for better air circulation.

A product with good ventilation and minimal condensation was produced thanks to the vestibule and vents. The tent’s inner is made of mesh to enhance breathability as well.
