We offer a broad range of accessories for our tents, all of which are designed to improve performance, weather resistance and longevity. Tent footprints, for example, are designed to protect the base of your tent from rugged terrain and excess moisture, while a well-placed gear loft in the inside of a tent can add valuable storage space. Titanium pegs are an excellent was to save even more weight without affecting the overall strength of the tent.
If you’re driving to and from your chosen campsite, then you don’t need to worry about finding the lightest tent available. A lighter tent will generally have less room, particularly in terms of vestibules, so don’t buy the lightest tent if you don’t really need it, as having more space for gear and kit is such a help, especially if you’re planning long stays in your tent. However, for fast and light trips, which involve a lot of carrying, a lightweight tent is essential. Single skin tents offer a saving in weight but supply less breathability. They function best in cold/dry environments and are best suited to trips where weight saving is the highest priority. For the more adventurous, take a bivi, tarp or hammock when you haven’t got the pack size of available weight to carry a tent.
