Ultra Quasar

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Bomb proof, 20 years old, all poles replaced, outer replaced twice, inner feeling a little sorry for itself, but after 20 years is still intact and in fairly good nick. At the time, a shade under 500 quids seemed one hell of a lump of cash to lay out on a tent. I have been on 3 x 6 month solo bike rides with this fabulous tent. The inner survives to this day since 1998, the outer has been replaced twice due to UV damage. It's also been to a few festivals too and has been bombproof and such a well… Full review

Voyager

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Wonderful four-season backpacking tent with many strengths and few weak points. Excellent balance of size, weight, portability, strength, and weatherproofing. While noting one negative review here about damage in strong wind, I have found the tent to be very stable provided it is pitched with the rear end into the wind (and as it is self-supporting it can be turned into the wind easily if conditions change). Stability can be increased still further by adding two extra guys to the optional attachment… Full review

Titanium 1g Skewer Pegs

rated 2 of 5 stars An over-specialized bit of gear that works for limited applications or hard-core ultralighters under certain conditions, but overall probably not worth the money. This is a review of the Terra Nova 1g Titanium Skewers. I am not connected to Terra Nova in any way, and I purchased the product retail. These titanium skewers come in a pack of six. They are essentially “micro stakes”—very small, thin, and ultralight titanium stakes. And while they might be good for a few specialized uses, overall… Full review

Ultra Quasar

rated 4.5 of 5 stars At the time, a shade under 500 quids seemed one hell of a lump of cash to lay out on a tent. I have been on 3 x 6 month solo bike rides with this fabulous tent. The inner survives to this day since 1998, the outer has been replaced twice due to UV damage... It's also been to a few festivals too and has been bombproof and such a well designed tent. It's hard to know if there are better value tents around 20 years on, probably but I feel safe getting another if need be. Full review

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
