Two guys in underwear and it's assumed one of them (not both?) climbed a tree. Well, what if a creature of some kind was up the tree? Cutting the top of the tent makes sense if something outside is spooking them and they want to have a look. Perhaps something was trying to get into the tent (something with hands,) and in a state of panic (unsure to attempt to run or wait for the predator to enter their tent) they cut their way out and ran off in different directions. Why in their underwear? If the predator came for their tent and tried to get in they may have been too scared for their lives to dress. So, some made it further than others. The creature pursued...but for my theory to hold water it couldn't have been a mere physical creature, but something supernatural, that did not leave prints behind.
There is no escaping the supernatural here in my opinion. Yet, they don't match any supernatural attacks I've ever read about. It's possible that something supernatural manifested and attacked them. This would be unlike any force I know about, though. Wonder if they were foolish enough to experiment with contacting the spirit world there?
What is clear to me: 1) It's supernatural 2) Something was at the tent exit and scared them out, most likely after waking them 3) It's unexplainable by current human means (science, logic, etc.)
It seems to me the two guys killed in their underwear, not far from the tent, were probably the ones awoken and attacked there. Perhaps the other group had moved on instead of staying behind, desperate to escape what was spooking them. It would be impossible to say which group would have been attacked first.

There is an interesting website about the Dyatlov pass mystery, very atmospheric, even has creepy music and full page pictures with text superimosed.
If you go into the comments section there are a few links that may be of interest to you also.
