Nordisk Telemark 2 Nordisk world's lightest 2 man tent

The world's lightest 2 man tent. 950g Telemark 2 has won several awards for its technical and extreme lightweight construction, and despite striving for the lowest weight possible, there are no compromises on function nor comfort. Inner pocket, ventilation through mechanical construction as well as mesh window, easy adjustable guy ropes, magnet closing and corner poles, which can convert the door into a tarp.

One Planet Gunyah 2

The Gunyah 2 is designed for two people. It's got a little porch area for boots and gear and enough head and foot room for the lanky, even when sitting upright. A large, high-opening door helps the poor old back when entering and leaving the tent, as well as giving great ventilation on balmy summer nights. The tent weighs approx 1.2 kilograms with a stuff sack.

The pitching options:

Full tent (inner, fly, pole, pegs and stuff sacks): approx 1.2 kilograms
Full tent with footprint floor protection: approx 1.44 kilograms
For hot and mozzie-infested areas use the mesh inner (inner tent, pole, pegs): approximately 0.73 kilograms
For fly only (fly, poles, pegs, footprint): approximately 0.85 kilograms

Footprint that prolongs the life of the floor and doubles as a lunch tarp: approximately 0.23 kilograms

Gunyah 2 Review

Outer Limits Backpacker 2 Outer Limits Backpacker 2 Single pole design for ease of set up which gives also a great weight at <2.0kg. Extra benefit of providing a vestibule for wet and grubby gear.

Inner is mesh.
