From UK-based Terra Nova, a company long renowned for its ultralight gear, the Solar Photon 2 is one of the lightest free-standing two-person double-wall tents in the world. It weighs just 34 ounces packed—that’s with the fly, poles, stakes, stuff sacks, and repair kit—and is supported by a single Y-shaped hubbed pole, with clips that make for quick and easy setup. Front and rear fly hoods provide ample ventilation, while two interior pockets give you a place to store the essentials.
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.
We recommend using more substantial stakes than are provided with this tent, at least for the critical guy-out point. You can add on either of our two most popular titanium stakes from Vargo - the Ascent "V" (+$15) or the Nail peg (+$18), available at check-out.
