Lightwave's t10 Trail Tent balances weight with strength and durability offering a true 4 season tent in a spacious lightweight package.
Lightwave’s new trail tunnel tents combine the design qualities of the top-of-the-range hyper models with the fabric and pole specifications of our established and highly regarded trek range. The result is outstanding all-round performance at a reasonable price.
The trail tents offer the same multi-pitch options as the hyper range. This means they can be erected flysheet-first, inner-tent first, or integrally.
The fabrics used in the trail tents strike an excellent balance of strength and weight, with a slight bias towards strength in order to cope with robust handling and to maintain long-term durability. The poles are not the lightest available but possess tremendous resilience when it comes to absorbing stress. Each trail tent comes with two types of peg to cover different ground conditions – from hard-packed earth to loose sandy soil.
We are very pleased to be stocking Lightwave tents whilst being pretty light for 2 skin tents with fabric inners they combine some very important design features that set them apart from many of their competitors. The Trail range in particular benefit from various pitching options which include flysheet first, ensuring you can get out of the weather without getting your inner tent wet, or more importantly pack away the inner tent before the flysheet comes down.
The Trail series utilise slightly heavier components which bring the price down compared to the Hyper models which share the same design but use the lightest possible fabrics. In using alternative components the strength has not been compromised just the weight.

Pitching the trail tent integrally, with the flysheet and inner tent attached together, is the quickest and easiest method and can be completed within three minutes. This method is particularly advantageous in very wet weather.
When it comes to dismantling the tent, however, if the flysheet is wet (either from the weather or condensation) we recommend that you detach and fold up the inner separately and then dry off the flysheet (or at the very least, shake off any excess water) before packing it away.
In the case of exceptionally strong winds, pitching the tent inner-first (with the tail into the wind) will give you the strongest structure.
