Terra Nova says:
The Starlite 3 is an extremely lightweight 3 person traditional tunnel tent with an enormous porch large enough for storing bikes. With a packed length of only 29cm and small pack size it’s perfect for cycle camping and the new trend for bike packing. Terra Nova Equipment’s unique Seam Plus water resistant seam technology has been applied to the silicone coated flysheet to provide a higher level of water resistance than a non-treated seam.
The poles of Terra Nova's Starlite 3 Tent fold down to a tiny 29cm long enabling it to fit into most cycle bags or packs. The compact packed tent can also be fixed directly onto a bike thanks to the attachment loops on the outside of its storage bag.

The Starlite 3 tent is designed for 3 season use ie Spring to Autumn weather conditions, and for medium duration trips where more space may be required to accommodate equipment and provide a comfortable shelter. The extended porch can store bikes and the large side flysheet door makes it easy to get cycles and people in and out. The tunnel design provides plenty of space in the inner too. The tent can be used for wild camping or campsite stays on bike packing trips.
The simple tunnel design pitches as one ie the inner and flysheet together, which makes it quick and easy to erect at the end of a long day. Once pitched flysheet tension can be quickly and easily adjusted with the buckle pegging points at each corner. The inner has a full midge proof mesh door with a separate solid fabric door behind, this combined with an additional mesh panel at the rear of inner provides plenty of flexibility for ventilation. Guylines are reflective Dyneema, Dyneema guyrope is three times as strong as standard guyrope of the same weight and has very low stretch for stability in all conditions.
