Terra Nova Equipment Ltd is based in Derbyshire, England. The company was formed in 1993 following the demerger of Wild Country Ltd, when Wild Country’s tent division and its extremities accessories business became Terra Nova Equipment Ltd. The Terra Nova brand was established and tents previously sold under the Wild Country name were marketed as Terra Nova. Terra Nova Equipment later acquired the rights to use the name ‘Wild County’ on tents and the company developed a second range of tents.
Terra Nova has continued the commitment to innovation and quality established by Wild Country Ltd. Our aim in whatever we do is to be ‘Best in Class’ and we have developed an enviable reputation worldwide for the reliability and technical expertise of our award winning designs. Our heritage is in mountain tents which are still a regular sight on Everest and at the poles, where they face some of the most demanding conditions. The new millennium saw development shift to lightweight tents. Terra Nova launched the first sub 1kg tent with a Guinness World Record to mark the achievement. Terra Nova lightweight tents are now an equally familiar sight at mountain marathons. Lightweight packs and sleeping bags have since been added to its portfolio enabling people to have a tent, pack and sleeping bag weighing 1kg!
