Super Quasar

rated 5 of 5 stars Bought my first (Wild Country) Quasar in 1990 and still have it. It survived a ferocious (force 10+) New Year's night on An Teallach. Although I've still got it, I've since bought another which I'm sure will last another 25 years. A truly remarkable tent which I would highly recommend. Easy to set up even in poor conditions. Extremely stable even in the most extreme weather. The trip to An Teallach on a New Years day 1992 was no doubt foolhardy. Having pitched in the snow as the light was going… Full review

Super Quasar

rated 4 of 5 stars Wrote my original review (above) in 2003 and just saw a user write a hard critique. My son now owns my original Super Quasar as I bought a Hilleberg Nammtj 3GT to replace it. However, I was very disappointed with that tent and sold it after one season. I then bought another Super Quasar and remain delighted with it. Still love it. Full review

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Beware! These tents are rubbish and customer service with lifetime warranty to original owner! Ha! Doesn't exist! The red poles especially will fail without warning, even when new! AVOID TERRA NOVA! You have been warned! Full review

Adventure Tarp 2

rated 4 of 5 stars Definitely a quality product with great stitching and fine materials. Sized just right for my needs.

Packed mine with 50ft of guy line and 6 stakes to do just about anything I want to with it. Used mine as a lean-to using motorcycle as high point. Works just great.  Full review

Solar Photon 2

rated 3.5 of 5 stars This is a great tent for people who require reliable protection from the elements and are willing to trade interior space for weight. It's been amazing in all weather conditions we've put it in. Don't be fooled by the amazingly light fabric; the seams are well sewn and the fabric is tougher than it feels. On hot buggy nights, the tent (without fly) provides skeeter protection while still allowing a silhouetted view of the sky. This tent performs well in Pacific Northwest weather: we've used it on… Full review
