The Southern Cross 1 is a completely free-standing, 4 season backpacking tent for one person. It pitches quickly with the flysheet and inner together.
Terra Nova says:
The Southern Cross 1 tent is a completely freestanding lightweight tent suitable for 4 season backpacking. The Southern Cross 1 takes its design inspiration from the award winning Laser range of lightweight tents but includes an additional pole to provide extra stability and structure. Pitching is quick and easy as the flysheet and inner are erected as one and the flysheet and groundsheet are fully taped providing complete waterproof protection.
Due to its 100% freestanding nature, pegging is kept to a minimum when optimising its strength / weight ratio.There is a spacious inner and porch, the porch door can be fixed open in several ways to provide the most suitable weather protection for the current conditions.
Taking inspiration from other popular 1 man tents in the Terra Nova range, the Southern Cross provides a completely free-standing tent with a lightweight feel and fully waterproof protection for backpacking and expeditions. With a spacious inner and porch area, you have plenty of room to store your rucksack and boots. It also features 1 large door to make accessing the tent a little easier compared to other 1 man tents.
It's simple to pitch as the Reflex poles are colour coded and the flysheet and inner can be erected together which is ideal when pitching in windy or rainy conditions. If your looking for extra space the Southern Cross 2 adds extra width and more porch space - but of course that means more weight too.
Note the inner tent is white as per the main picture, not yellow as some of the other images supplied by Terra Nova.
