The definitive 2-man tent for 4 season use

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 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 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, UV resistance with superb waterproofing and the flysheet and groundsheet are taped for complete weather protection
► 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 
► 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 here

Just to say I've had my quasar since 1986 and its still going strong, never broken a pole and never torn the flyn or inner. Quite simply the best tent I've ever had

We bought our first Quasar in 1992. It has travelled extensively, and been used for the whole range of backpacking activities, including winter snow expeditions. We've got a few other tents, but the Quasar is always our preference for bomb-proof reliability. Loads of room for two with gear, and we've managed to squeeze three when our first son was a wee bit smaller!

Terra Nova's guarantee has proved excellent. No-quibble repairs and replacements mean our tent is as serviceable now as when we bought it nearly 28 years ago. That's why we are now looking to buy one for our son.
