The Solar Competition 1, updated in 2011 from the previously named Solar Competition, is a 1kg single person backpacking tent for year-round use.

The Solar Competition 1 is a truly free-standing tent with a split-pole finish at the foot end for improved stability. Using the same fabrics as our award winning Laser Competition 1, the Solar Competition 1 has a side entrance for easy access to the long porch and good ventilation thanks to mesh panels in the inner tent. A fantastic superlite tent with a small footprint, the first true solo backpackers tent for travelling fast and light. This tent is compatible with the Terra Nova FASTPACK system, allowing those who want to trim weight further when conditions permit, to use the flysheet and the fastpack groundsheet which is available separately.

Note: Due to the super light nature of the material used in the tents construction we are unable to factory seal the seams in a conventional method. However they are positioned and sewn in a way that minimises water penetration and it's possible to add further protection yourself, with seam sealer, to fully waterproof the tent.


This Terra Nova product is guaranteed to the original owner against defects in materials and workmanship for the lifetime of the product.

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.
