UOG TOP PICK - Wechsel Exogen 1 Person Tent - We've singled out Wechsel's Exogen as one of our top recommendations because it is one of the most versatile 3+ season tents. It is fully freestanding and tough enough for camping all year round as long as you stay off the summits in winter.

The Exogen provides a good amount of space in a strong, stable design. Top quality materials will see this tent stand up to serious conditions while still being light enough to use for multiday backpacking trips.

Wechsel says:

The Exogen 1 is a freestanding geodesic tent for one person - including a vestibule. Two aluminum hubs at the poles ensure high wind stability. The inner tent of the Exogen 1 is set up first. The additional pole forms the vestibule, as soon as the fly sheet is stretched over it. For a very light weather protection, the fly sheet can be set up by using the Groundsheet. The inner tent is equipped with mosquito mesh in the doors as well as at the foot and head end. Additional inner tent pockets ensure order and offer space for otherwise odds and ends.

Wechsel Zero-G Line  | Zero-G Line - Are you searching for a tent to take on long trips up mountains and along valleys, through wind and rain and snow? Do you have to count every ounce you take with you because you and you alone are doing all the carrying? Do you value excellent craftsmanship, functional details and high standards of comfort? Then look no further than the tents in our Zero-G Line. Thanks to their eco-friendly, anodised aluminium poles they are perfectly suited to performing well under extreme weather conditions like high winds.

Wechsel's Exogen 1 Backpacking Tent is a great option for an all-rounder tent. With a strong design using cross poles and a low cut fly this tent stands up really well to the wind and rain regularly experienced in UK conditions. The materials used show immediate quality and have proven to be very durable with extended use.

The tent uses a fully silicone coated flysheet which gives increased UV protection and tear strength but does mean it can't be seam taped. The Exogen has seams stitched in such a way that they should be waterproof but for use in extremely wet conditions it is supplied with a tube of silicone sealant so that you can seal the seams for additional weather protection.

The tent is easy to pitch and is great to use. The single door works well and doesn't make getting in and out difficult like many others. The low cut fly is ideal for wet and windy conditions but it can also be pegged out or rolled up to allow a greater space for ventilation or use in good weather. Attention to detail and nice little touches in the design make Wechsel tents stand out.

Quality

I don't have this tent, but I do have the very similar Wechsel Pathfinder. This has more headroom than the Pathfinder. Wechsel tents are well built and robust and extremely good value. My Pathfinder weighs slightly less than the Hilleberg Soulo has a stronger groundsheet and is much more wind resistant as its a low and small geodesic for less than £300. Wechsel are little known in the UK but are an excellent brand.
