From UK-based outdoor company Terra Nova, these three-season tents stand out for their waterproof, storm-worthy construction. Both strike a great balance between light weight and comfort, pitch quickly, and keep you nice and dry. If you’re backpacking with a buddy, choose the award-winning Laser Competition 2, which has two doors, a minimum weight of 38 ounces, and uses DAC NFL alloy poles. Trekking solo? We’ve got the one-person Photon 1 tent, which has a minimum weight of 24 ounces.
Note: At checkout, you’ll have your choice between the Terra Nova Laser Competition 2 and the Photon 1 (+ $25). Because these tents are not freestanding, each requires the included guy lines to be pitched. Ground sheets are not included.
Each of these tents is compatible with the Terra Nova FASTPACK system. For anyone looking to trim weight further when conditions permit, this allows you to use the flysheet (and no inner) with the FASTPACK ground sheet (not included).
Founded in Derbyshire, England in 1993, Terra Nova started out making mountaineering tents, and has since expanded its product line to include ultralight tents, tarps, backpacks, trekking poles, apparel, sleeping bags, and cookware. Along the way, the company launched the first tent under 1 kilogram, and even has a Guinness World Record to show for the achievement.
