The Ultra 1 delivers what it promises. It is extremely light and packs down 1.5 x 4 x 6 inches including 6 pegs and some cord to pitch it with. When first unpacked, it looks unbelievably flimsy and likely to tear easily, but it is tough. I have just used it for 7 consecutive nights on Offa’s Dyke North, in fairly high wind, rain and also some sunshine. It stood up well in the wind (pitched with 1 or 2 walking poles depending on configuration) and I never got wet under it. The negatives are; (1) Price. It is really expensive and leaves you wondering if you should not have bought a ultra light tent instead. (2) it is fairly transparent, which means it does not block light and if you were thinking of some privacy – well forget about it. It worked for me though and I don’t regret the purchase.
