Building upon Terra Nova's most popular tent with it's multi award-winning hoop design, this Compact version still provides a stable shelter with an easy set-up, with the added bonus of a smaller pack size.
Terra Nova says:
The Laser Compact 1 is the small pack size version of the classic single person tent, the Laser Competition 1, winner of multiple Best In Test awards. With all of the classic features and benefits partnered with a compact pack size of just 30cm length.
The Laser Compact 1 is designed for backpackers, travellers and cyclists looking for tried and tested kit with a good balance of durability and very low weight. This tent is suitable for medium duration backpacking trips, mountain marathons and cycle touring and is rated for 3 season use, so perfect for spring to autumn weather conditions. Its low-profile design and shape make it ideal for both wild camping as well as campsite use. Although it is a 1-person tent for overnight stays it could also be used as snug accommodation for 2.
The Laser Compact uses the transverse hoop design which is a classic, much copied design, that Terra Nova used very early on and they've developed this type of tent further than many imitators. Check the dimensions carefully because Terra Nova tents can feel small - but they are the lightest around. A simple, effective design with single entrance help keep weight down. The low profile of the tent, guy lines and low cut fly make it a great tent for battling the wind and rain.
The 'Compact' tents are pretty much exactly the same as the 'Competition' version but with shorter pole sections that allow the pack size to be much smaller. Ideal for the pack size conscious traveller, whether that's back- or bike-packing.
