Terra Nova Camp & Hike Laser Competition 1P Tent - 1 Person 3 Season 43LC. The tent is designed for travellers and backpackers looking for weight saving kit and is suitabe for medium duration backpacking trips and 3 season conditions. The forerunner to the Laser Competition 1 (the Laser Lite) was first launched in 2004 and was the first 1kg tent in the market. It sparked a trend for lightweight tent development and the Laser design became the defacto standard for lightweight tents. Although the silicone flysheet cannot be seam sealed the Laser Competition has been cleverly designed to minimise the number of seams over the inner. There is one main seam which incorporates the pole sleeve over the inner and the tent is supplied with a removable waterproof hood to cover this seam and add extra stability. The remaining seams at each end of the tent are positioned away from the inner so the inner is fully protected from the wet. To keep weight and pack size down folding carbon rods are used at each end of the tent. The main pole is high quality DAC alloy. The Laser Competition 1 tent is compatible with the Terra Nova FASTPACK system allowing those who want to trim weight further when conditions permit to use the flysheet and the fastpack groundsheet (which is available separately) without the inner.

Previous holder of the Guinness World Record for the lightest tent in the world, now held by the Terra Nova Laser Photon, the Laser Competition Tent is still one of the lightest tents available.

When used with the included waterproof hood the Laser Competition is guaranteed waterproof and has withstood extremely rough weather, including Scottish winters. Exceptional comfort for 1 person (space for 2 adventure racers). The Laser Competition pitches flysheet first and the inner can be left connected, so it is exceptional quick to erect.

Dac ultralight pole is both lightweight and strong. Includes 2g titanium stakes and reflective guy line ropes. Reflective trim on poles sleeve aids in easy identification.
