Exped's Cetus two person tunnel tent uses robust fabrics and copious guying out points to produce a tough, stable tent that will have a long life.

Exped says: The Cetus II UL is our new tunnel tent for undertakings that require a decent amount of gear. The third arch creates a spacious vestibule combining light weight desgin with generous living space. The side entry to the vestibule offers good views and excellent shelter from the elements.

Exped 3 Season Trekking Tent Category explained at Ultralight Outdoor Gear|This tent is one of Exped's 3 Season TREKKING tents - Tents designed for moderate and warm climate zones featuring large mesh panels for enhanced ventilation. The grey mesh is inconspicuous and allows panoramic views. Large vestibules offer ample dry storage space. High doors enable easy access to the inner tent. Globetrotters and hikers will enjoy the low weights combined with generous living space.

Exped's Cetus II UL is a two skin tunnel tent with an extended vestibule that doesn't compromise on durability. Many of the lightest tents that we sell have been produce with 7 Dernier fabrics, which, while being strong and waterproof are not as resistant to UV radiation than heavier fabrics. The Cetus, is made from 15 Dernier fabrics so it should have a longer life than a 7 Dernier tent.

What's more the Cetus has a 40 Dernier floor with a 10,000 mm hydrostatic head - this is one of the highest rating you'll find on any lightweight tent so you are fully protected from the ground - and it uses 9mm aluminium poles, again, a tougher proposition than some lighter tents.

The Cetus has a large number of guying points, 4 on each pole, this means it can be pitched taught to give it a high wind resistance.

The Cetus is not particularly spacious (about average for a two person tent) and weighs a bit more than our lightest tents - but you can see why - longer life, greater pitching options and slightly heavier fabrics.
