The Nordisk Telemark 1 ULW is an ideal tent for solo backpacking as it's extremely light and small, yet spacious and very strong.

Nordisk says:

Very spacious 1 person tent with a surprisingly low weight. Despite striving for the lowest weight possible, there are no compromises on function nor comfort. Inner pocket for storage, ventilation through mechanical construction as well as mesh window, easy adjustable guy ropes, magnet closing and as the most unique feature, the corner poles can also be used to convert the door into a tarp.

Every gram counts when back packing and while many modern back packing tents tip the scales at less than 1000 grams, not all of them are practical to use in challenging weather. The Telemark 1 ULW is a spacious yet lightweight 1 man tent made from strong, lightweight carbon poles that can withstand wind speeds of up to 25.0 m/sec. What makes it unique is that it has a large vestibule for storage of gear and the whole tent can be erected in under 4 minutes with a little practice.

The Telemark 1 comes in 2 versions, the model featured here is the ultra lightweight (ULW) model, which weighs in at 756 grams (excluding pegs) and uses carbon poles. There is also a lightweight (LW) version that weighs in at 794 grams (excluding pegs) and uses aluminium poles. Depending on how important weight is to you, you could save yourself a few bob with the LW version.

The Telemark 1 comes in two versions, and the model featured here is the ultra-lightweight (ULW) model, which uses carbon poles. There is also a lightweight (LW) version that weighs in at 830g according to the manufacturers, costs £320, and uses aluminium poles. - See more at:

I had the LW version for a 2 day trip to Dartmoor in early March. Disaster after disaster! The tent totally saturated my RAB Infinity 300 Hydrophobic down bag on the first night. There wasn't even any rain and I woke up shivering around 1am. The inside was soaking wet even though the doors were unzipped. The inside needs a lot more mesh. The second night was a rainy evening and thus I couldn't get my sleeping bag or inner tent dried out. Needless to say I packed the car and drove back to Kent seriously hacked off with soaking wet gear. Seriously flawed design and will now try a Laser Ultra.

Condensation at foot end

Amazing lightweight tent considering the specs such as HH of groundsheet and roominess for one. Headroom is at the limit for me (5'11"), comfort-wise : I'd love an extra 5cm! I can live with it though in a solo ULW tent.
Very small and short pack-size so great for cycle touring. Would strap onto handlebars with poles in the bag too.
It has a decent porch space which is also adjustable to create more space whilst cooking etc by pulling the inner back along the strap that runs between the two pole ends.
Using a fairly high neoair mat, my sleeping bag foot end gets wet with condensation. I think this mainly happens if I migrate down to the foot end in the night and so make contact between inner and the fly. If I can keep up at the head end more (it's reasonably long inside) it's less of an issue. I'll adapt mine to get more ventilation at the foot end - perhaps making a simple strap to lift the centre of the foot end panel up.
The inner is mainly rip-stop with a small panel of no-see-um. This is refreshing as it means it can be used through the winter without feeling every gust of breeze rob you of body heat! Probably a mark of it's European heritage in contract with the American trend for full mesh inners.
Loses stars for the condensation issue only. God knows what the Lofoten is like in this regard!!
