Worlds Lightest Tent

Our Story In Lightweight Tent Development

In 2004 Terra Nova Equipment set the benchmark for lightweight tent development when it launched the world’s first sub 1kg tent. A Guinness World Record marked the achievement of creating the lightest tent in the world.

The development of new materials and use of fabrics not previously used on a commercial scale in tent production has allowed Terra Nova Equipment to slice more weight off its record breaking tents and achieve 3 further world records for the lightest tent.

In its quest to use new materials Terra Nova Equipment also pioneered the use of bonded seams in ultra-light tents through its development of the Voyager Ultra 2, a semi- geodesic, 2 person model weighing just 1kg and made using the extremely lightweight ULTRA fabric.

The lightest tent on the market is currently the Laser Pulse Ultra 1 which not only has a minimum weight of just 450g but a tiny pack size of only 30cm x 9cm, making it extremely packable for ultra events.
