Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars
Price Paid: 300GBP

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.

Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars
Design: 4 pole geodistic
Sleeps: 2
Ease of Setup: colout coded poles, easy
Weight: 4.1 kg
Price Paid: 300 pounds

Extremly strong tent that holds up to all conditions I have put it through. Has a good internal space and the two porches in bad weather make having to bed down for over a day much easier. A little bit heavy but when you get it into conditions where you can't compromise then the weight no longer becomes an issue.

Have used this tent numerous times in the snow and last year we even pitched it on an exposed peak. Even after a foot of snow the tent proved it could not be budged. Certainly a tent that is very specific, but if you can't compromise with the conditions that you're going into then would give a full recommendation for this tent.

This tent is an absolute beast. I got half way up Everest and the tent was still going strong but I wasn't. This tent is amazing and has handled all sorts of conditions with me and my fellow campers (Sam and Andrew). I would never change to another tent. There are lighter tents on the market but mine is just the best of them all. I am attempting Everest again in December and I shall taking my reliable, trusty Quasar.

'The definitive two man tent', I have never met a quote more true.

Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars
Design: 4 season
Sleeps: 2
Ease of Setup: Dead simple
Weight: 4 Kg
Price Paid: around £360

This tent still loves strong winds, even after eight years service. Tested in all conditions, even gusts of around 80 mph (held up with spoons for tent pegs as I forgot to put them in!) and stayed as solid as a Bulgarian weight lifter on steroids.

One to recommend, but I may choose an Ultra Quasar with ETC next time.

Design: four season dome
Sleeps: 2
Ease of Setup: due to 4 poles it can be a bit tricky
Weight: 4.3kg
Price Paid: £365

This is "the" tent if you're into bad weather, a bit on the heavy side but the ultra quasar does shed a bit off the weight. Totally storm proof and even looks good!
