User Review: MEC Tarn 2
Price Paid: $187
Sorry to disagree, but the Tarn 2 is far from ultralight. When it first came out it was a step up from the old canvas tents, but technology has left it far behind. The new Camper 2 runs at 2.11 kg min. wt. and it's a lot cheaper and far easier to set up.
I bought a Tarn 2 few years ago and tried setting it up in my kitchen. It took me half an hour, and it looked a bit warped when I got done. This is truly a 1.5 person tent, not a 2 person tent. I took it back and swapped it for the Camper 2.
