Our gear has withstood some of the most extreme weather on the planet, which is why we have a long heritage of producing some of the world’s best outdoor gear. Our products are designed in the UK, with the most specialist expedition and lightweight tents made in our Derbyshire factory.

The Terra Nova Equipment Heritage

The world's lightest tent

Revolutionising Lightweight Gear

In 2004 Terra Nova Equipment set the benchmark for lightweight tent development when it launched the world’s first sub 1kg tent. This led to a Guinness World Record to mark the achievement of creating the Lightest Tent in the World.

We’ve developed new materials and fabrics that have never been used in tent production before. Therefore, Terra Nova has been able to slice even more weight off its record-breaking tents, to achieve a further three World Records for the lightest tents.
