rated 5 of 5 stars I wholeheartedly recommend this tent for 3-4 season backpacking use, particularly in foul or unpredictable weather. This tent is bombproof — excellent wind and rain resistance, and well ventilated to prevent condensation. Not an ultralight tent by any means, but an acceptable weight for backpacking when you take into consideration the stregths of this tent for rough weather camping. When my old LL Bean dome tent bit the dust (more due to being stored in a damp basement, than from overuse, unfortunately),… Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars Had my Quasar a long time, one of two TN tents I own (Solar 2). I've used this wildcamping in the Lakes in some pretty breezy weather, and this thing hardly moves if guyed out properly. It's not great when it warms up as there isn't much ventilation, but that's not what this tent is for. I completely trust this tent, and if the weather is going to be bad, this is the tent I'll take.

rated 5 of 5 stars We have owned a Hyperspace tent since 1996, it has been used many times every season and we have always found it to be reliable and comfortable to use.

rated 5 of 5 stars Have owned one (Terra Nova Explorer) for six years now and use it a number of times a year. Been to France, Germany and England including Derbyshire, where the tent was made, also a few times to Scotland. The tent is still in great condition. I always make sure it's clean and dry and re proofed) before stored. It has never let me down even through winter camps. As the bloke above said, Expensive but BOMB PROOF Tent! Full review


rated 2 of 5 stars Terra Nova market themselves as makers of 'the best tents in the world' and this is an expensive tent, costing 500 quid. Personally, I don't feel that either the quality of the tent, or the customer service, live up to the hype. It is certainly a solid, roomy tent. Unfortunately, these tents have a major problem with poor quality zips on the inner doors. Especially in dry, dusty conditions the zips rapidly wear out and refuse to work. Having returned from a trip last year with the doors held up… Full review
