I’m looking to get a new one-man tent – the £40 one I lived in for a year as I cycled across Asia is due a graceful retirement.
Last year I asked what was the best expedition backpack. The feedback on that piece was so helpful. So I would really appreciate any suggestions you may have. Pop them in the comments section below…
The collective wisdom of Twitter came up with some good suggestions for me:
SarahOuten Sarah Outen: Hubba XP by MSR is pretty good. Has vertical walls so you can sit up.
touchtherock: Another vote for the Terra Nova superlight Voyager, good stability/weight ratio with plenty of room for 1, or friendly 2.
monkeyboyraw: Check out the new Terra Nova Solar 1, updated and super lite but not true self support.
webbpete Pete Webb: Got one of these, not for the extreme though. http://www.rab.uk.com/equipment/bivvis/summit_mountain_bivi—140/
Revolution_Ferg: This was diamond, really light, and free standing. http://cascadedesigns.com/msr/tents/experience-series/hubba-hubba/product
hrXXLight: BD firstlight
nksheridan : I’m for Hilleberg Akto!
tookiebunten: for the top of a Scottish mountain in the full clutches of winter?
alistairpearson: By 1-person tents, I assume you mean 2 person tents. The former being always too small. I swear by my Vaude Taurus Ultralite.
snoweider: I have macpac microlight- tough, but not the lightest, plus probs with condensation compared to my old wild country zephyr.
Do you have any other suggestions for me?
