The Mojo UFO is a Jetsons/Back to the Future II/Doctor Who/impenetrable shelter from the zombie virus outbreak sort of tent. Made of virtually indestructible space-age textile Cuben Fiber, the 2-person Mojo condenses to a packed length of 17" long x 3" thick and weighs a mere 1 lb, 11 oz. As a point of reference, that weight amounts to exactly 3 cans of Tactical Bacon. Coincidentally, it is also the exact poundage of camping gear my ex-girlfriend was ever willing to carry, but I prefer the bacon comparison, as bacon is the one of the two that I do not hope falls on its face and bites through its own lip.

Mojo UFO interior area measures 26-1/2 square feet, and its hybrid single and double wall panels allow for increased ventilation without water infiltration. Sierra Designs has also integrated the tent's rainfly so it remains protected during setup--the inner body won't get soaked in rainy conditions before you have a chance to attach a flysheet.

For those new to the term "cuben fiber", the material is a laminated fabric woven from a mix of Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene and polyester. Though not directly related to carbon fiber, cuben fiber does incorporate some of the former's threads as reinforcement in some of its laminates.
