This is an astonishing tent, the design is a classic & the fabric is absolutely cutting edge. Its translucent so be prepared for that, also the fabric has natural markings which are normal and not faults but all this appearance fails to hint at its strength - which is comparable to tents twice its weight.
This is the lightest incarnation of the Terra Nova laser tent, with a minimum weight of 495 grams; this is the lightest twin skinned tent in the world. This revolutionary fabric looks space aged, but it was actually developed as spinnaker fabric on elite sailing yachts, and it is far more waterproof and tougher than it looks.
