With the weather breaking, hardened outdoor enthusiasts can continue backpacking confidently though out the autumn and winter, with Laser Compact All Season models introduced by Terra Nova earlier this year. Continuing their ethos of innovation Terra Nova has produced an all-season version of the iconic Laser Compact tent – the ideal combination of the popular Laser and Quasar models.
This is the perfect marriage of the award-winning Laser design combined with the fabrics from the mountain proven Quasar, resulting in a high quality, lightweight and robust 4 season backpacking tent which will enable the intrepid adventurer to get out in all seasons.
Thoughtfully designed in Derbyshire, the Laser Compact All Season models use the same tried and tested fabric combination as the legendary Quasar and proven Southern Cross that include a flysheet made of Watershed 5,000mm HH rip stop Nylon and a groundsheet made of Waterbloc 10,000mm HH Nylon. Both are factory tape seam sealed to keep the water out.
Terra Nova Equipment has also added other features to ensure the tents robustness in more demanding weather conditions; it’s possible to double pole the Laser Compact All Season and additional Dyneema reflective guy lines for more secure pegging provide added peace of mind.
A vent hood over the flysheet door and close-able end vents on the inner and flysheet help keep condensation to a minimum. The inner tent main door is half mesh with a zip close-able panel behind to allow for bug free venting or for keeping the draughts out when the temperature drops and the wind gets up. Once inside a new automatic magnetic zip flap closure system ensures that the flysheet zip flap remains sealed against the elements in all weathers.
The 8.7mm DAC NFL pole with 30cm pole sections for a shorter packed length, is the same as the Laser Compact and at just 1.48kg for the one person and 1.8kg for the two person version, the Laser Compact All Season tents won’t weigh you down on your year round adventures.
Dave Housley, Product Development Manager at Terra Nova, said “Dave Housely, Product Development Manager at Terra Nova Equipment said “The Laser Compact All Season is a backpacking tent thoughtfully designed to keep the weight of rucksacks down and have something that adventurers can truly trust and rely on.”
