"The definitive 2 person mountain tent is much copied, but never bettered. The exceptionally strong geodesic design is well proven having withstood some of the harshest conditions for well over two decades.

 
The Quasar is designed for mountaineers looking for an extremely strong tent and is at home in the mountains as it is at the poles.  Its strength, durability and space make it the perfect choice for longer term mountaineering trips or expeditions.  The tent is rated for 4 season mountain use and is as much at home wild camping as it is on a campsite.
 
The inner pitch first design of this this tent adds to its stability, makes it quieter than a tunnel tent in windy conditions and creates superb inner tension which prevents sagging and provides the largest usable space possible.   It’s simple and quick to pitch with colour coded poles and continuous pole sleeves. The free-standing format means this tent is ideal for camping where the ground is less firm, as it doesn't rely on guy lines and pegs to support its main structure.
 
Two entrances and porches allow sheltered access and plenty of space to store your gear. Each inner door has a full midge-proof mesh and full solid inner door, enabling a multitude of ventilation options depending on weather conditions. 
 
A combination of proven Terra Nova Watershed and Waterbloc fabrics provide excellent durability and UV resistance with superb waterproofing. The Quasar is updated for 2017 with the introduction of 30 Denier nylon ripstop Watershed fabric for the flysheet which has reduced the packed weight of the tent by 800g. The flysheet and groundsheet are taped for complete weather protection.
 
Dyneema reflective guylines add more stability in bad conditions. Dyneema guyrope is three times as strong as standard guyrope of the same weight and has very low stretch for stability in all conditions.
 
A Footprint which covers the area under the inner and porch is designed to prolong the life of the tent and help keep it clean. This can be purchased separately.
 
Features: Colour coded poles. Geodesic design. Inner pitch first. Dyneema reflective guylines. Full midge-proof mesh and full solid inner doors.  Fully taped flysheet and groundsheet. Waterproof. 2 doors and porches"
