This is a ultralight two man tent weighing only 1.15kg (including pegs and guy ropes but not including the two poles).
This tent comes in two parts, the mesh inner and the nylon outer, both of which can be used separately if desired.
You need two poles of 125cm in length.
I recommend carbon fibre poles from Bear Bones (select Universal Chinese Shelters) ⇨ Bear Bones Poles
Colour: Light Grey
Height is 125cm so it is easy to sit up in.
Width is 110cm.
Length is 210cm so lots of space for tall people.
There are two air ventilation windows above each door to minimise condensation.
The Hydrostatic Head is 5000mm.
The seams are taped so you don’t need to seal them after purchase.
The mesh on the inside is nice and dense so no midges or other nasty bugs can get in.
The inner tent has a bathtub design so that water has a harder time to get in.
You could use the outer tent on its own with a ground sheet or bivvy bag for an even lighter set up.
Or you could use the mesh inner on its own for when you are somewhere dry and hot.
Although this tent is marketed as being for two people, it is only really suitable for a couple that know each other well, an adult and a child or an adult plus dog perhaps. The floor is 110cm wide so two 55cm wide mats will fit perfectly. The foot end or the two porches can then be used to store gear like backpacks, bike bags etc. You don’t have to worry about touching the sides when rolling over or curling up as the porches mean the sides are well away from the sleeping compartment. This tent would be ideal for a single person to use on a long trip as it would offer a spacious internal area for comfort.
This is a very well-made tent with quality stitching and features. We have checked these tents over very carefully and they are really high quality.
It is compact and extremely light and with the addition of a couple of Bear Bones carbon poles would be around 1.3kg in total. Alternatively trekking poles, sticks or old fibreglass tent poles can be used instead. It comes with all the seams taped, so no need to mess around with glue.
Make: Aricxi – a relative newcomer to the market but deserving of a place alongside 3F, Flames Creed and other quality Chinese manufacturers.
Outer tent material :15D sil nylon.
