I love my solar competition tent because.... I can sit up in it, which is useful for dressing and reading. As it has a vaulted interior you don't feel cramped or claustrophobic. Because it is very lightweight.... as a woman it was my only option to go as lightweight as possible for endurance sake. Because it is freestanding..... I can pitch it anywhere, sand, cement on a ledge. Because it's made in the country I love to roam and somehow it blends in. Thankyou terra nova for making me a perfect tent.
