First test: Fjällräven Akka Endurance (2013)

£495.00

There is no such thing as bad camping weather; you just need the right tent. To make its Akka tents even better for coping with 4-season conditions, Fjällräven has developed a new triple ripstop fabric. This fabric is extra-strong, yet it’s light enough that when used to make a hugely spacious tent, the resulting shelter is light enough to be ...

First test: Hilleberg Anjan 3 (2012)

£525.00

‘Considered quality’ is the phrase that perhaps best summarises Hilleberg. In its 40 years the Swedish tentmaker has produced a relatively small run of designs, but few have failed to become the most desirable examples of their kind. The Nallo and Akto models in particular have become classics –products effortlessly right, light and built to last for life. Designs over ...

Vaude Power Lizard UL 2010

£350.00

Is light always right? It’s easy to make a tent lighter after all. Just make it smaller, ditch the porch and use a single layer of material rather than an inner and an outer. But how light can a tent be if it offers two-person space, a double wall and retains a porch? According to Vaude, the Power Lizard holds ...

Lightwave T2 Ultra 2009

£450.00

Lightwave has a broad range of tents and their common theme is that they are inner-pitched-first. This has benefits and drawbacks. Another (unique) feature of Lightwave tents is that they are modular – so you can choose versions of the same basic design. This is the T2 Ultra, but there is also a T2 Ultra XT with an extended porch ...

Mountain Equipment Tundra 2 2009

£375.00

Mountain Equipment has only added tents to its product range in recent years, but models such as the Dragonfly three-pole geodesic are already competing with the best. The latest addition is the Tundra 2, a two-person, two-pole tunnel. It weighs in at a very respectable 2400g, pitches outer-first and appears to offer a very functional blend of features for mountain ...

Terra Nova Laser Large 1 2009

£370.00

The 1880g Terra Nova Laser Large 1 is the big brother of the Terra Nova Laser Competition, the former Guinness record holder for the lightest two-person tent in the world (the record is now held by the Terra Nova Photon). This pedigree has bred a superlight but large two-person tent that does all it can to shave the grams from ...

Hilleberg Nallo 2 2009

£450.00

The Hilleberg Nallo 2 has set the standard for two-pole two-person tunnel tents. Hilleberg is also known for no-compromise designs that once perfected prevail for years with few if any changes. So the Nallo sets out to offer the optimum in terms of features for the weight with every detail adding to its perfect backpacking package.   Design The Nallo ...

Lightwave t0 Ultra XT 2009

£350.00

The Lightwave t0 Ultra XT is a spacious tent, with room inside for you and some gear, and enough height for me to sit at the door and cook in the porch. The porch is its best feature as it’s massive – there is also a version without the extended porch available. I had a fellow camper sit in the ...

Lightwave T1 Ultra

£330.00

This 2-person sub-2kg tent is the high-spec version of the Lightwave T1 Trek, where the materials shave around 400g off the weight. It’s a two-pole tunnel but the poles have a precurved arched shape, known as ARCHitektur, which is said to improve stability. I also like the fact that you get a proper instruction manual. It’s pitched inner-first with colour-coded ...
