Recently I had the need to purchase a second two-person tent for a trip to the Snowy Mountains. The Voyager is lightweight and has a geodetic design so that it is freestanding and comparatively rigid. It resists strong wind well, although it can pool water in the spaces between the poles. The pole which provides tension at the front of the tent is slightly long making its insertion troublesome. The seams should be resealed for additional strength. There are ample anchors, and overall the tent is solid and packs easily.

It is however obviously a three-season tent and would resist only light snow. If you are looking for a cheap light alternative tunnel tent, the Voyager is well suited to camping in easy/medium conditions. I doubt that the overall longevity of the tent would be more than a few years of use but for the cost it is a bargain if purchased in one of Kathmandu's regular sales (ie Easter, mid June or late in the year) where they are regularly discounted to $250. I would not buy one for $500, its RRP.

Design: Three season
Sleeps: 2
Ease of Setup: Simple
Weight: 2.6 Kgs
Price Paid: $500 (Australian)
