The Celeste has been discontinued. If you're looking for something new, check out the best three-season tents for 2021.
This tent is very versatile with the ability to set up in three options (tent and fly, tent only, and fly only). Inside there is plenty of room to sleep and store away essential items while in the two large vestibules there is more than enough room for all the other stuff one tends to accumulate for a long trek.
The UV40 fabric remains taut even when carrying a wet night's load and after three years is showing no signs of wearing from abrasions or the sun.
The tent has withstood strong and blustery winds (including downward gusts) incredibly well. The poles held their shape and never threatened to bend or break.
The asymmetric design of the tent is a little confusing to look at, but it seems to fit the maximum area into the smallest amount of materials.
Great for long treks with the possibility of extended stays inside a tent. Really a very impressive tent.
Design: 3 season asymmetric dome
Ease of Setup: Very easy, occasional snags to begin with
Weight: 3.4 kg
Price Paid: $AUD 700
This tent was elected tent of the year a while ago. Now I know why: it is a tent that is very simple to pitch, it is lightweight and has lots of comfort. It is equiped with two entrances, so both campers can keep their mess on their own side.
Furthermore, it is made out of UV40 polyester, so it will be standing like rock, even when covered in morning dew.
Design: 3 season
Ease of Setup: extremely simple, almost one-handed
Weight: 3.2 kg.
Price Paid: fl. 995.00
