Building upon Terra Nova's most popular tent with it's multi award-winning hoop design, this two person 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 2 is the small pack size version of the classic two-person tent, the Laser Competition 2, that offers a great mix of being super-low weight with additional comfort. With all of the benefits and features you would expect from a 2-person lightweight tent partnered with a compact pack size of only 30cm long.
The Laser Compact 2 tent is designed for backpackers, cyclists and general travellers looking for tried and tested weight saving kit with a good balance of durability and low-weight. It is suitable for medium, duration mountain marathons and backpacking trips and is rated for 3 season use, so spring to autumn weather conditions. Its low-profile design and shape make it the ideal tent for wild camping as well as campsite use.
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.
