The Southern Cross 2 is a completely free-standing, 4 season backpacking tent suitable for up to 2 people. It pitches quickly with the flysheet and inner together.

Terra Nova says:

The Southern Cross 2 tent is a completely freestanding lightweight tent suitable for 4 season backpacking. The Southern Cross 2 takes its design inspiration from the award winning Laser range of lightweight tents but includes an additional pole to provide extra stability and structure. Due to its 100% freestanding nature, pegging is kept to a minimum when optimising its strength / weight ratio.

The tent has 2 doors and 2 equal size porches enabling easy access and exit for both occupants and plenty of storage space for kit. 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. 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.

Not suitable for winter camping

I've used this tent during a two week summer trip, a three week autumn trip and a three days winter trip. I'm fairly disappointed about the tent performance. When the outer tent fabric becomes wet after prolonged rain it starts to sag with the risk of touching the inner tent. I cannot understand at all how this can be a 4-season tent. During my winter hike a faced big amounts of wet snow. It was impossible to avoid the above mentioned problem. So for during the winter I don't think this tent is good enough. The rest of the year: fairly good.
