Laser Competition

OutDoor INDUSTRY AWARD 2006

OutDoor INDUSTRY AWARD 2006

The Laser Competition is the lightest tent in the world, weighing 930g (packed) & 860g (minimum), and the first tent with a packed weight under 1kg. In January it was awarded ‘the lightest tent commercially available’ by Guinness World Records.

New for 2006, it is part of the superlite range of tents, developed by the company's award winning design team in response to the trend for lighter gear.

Materials have been developed in partnership with Terra Nova’s suppliers after the company conducted over 1000 tests.

It is a 1+ person tent, designed for ultralight backpacking & mountain marathons, but it has proved itself suitable for trips longer than 1 or 2 nights & conditions worse than its 3 season rating. Its design allows it to shed wind coming from any direction.

It is comfortable, allowing users to sit up inside and cook in the porch.

The Laser Competition endorses the brands objective of being ‘best in class’ and has set the standard for ultra lightweight tents.
