These 2 person tents are 2 kilos or less.

There are fly only options or tents without floors or screens available for those who are looking for partial cover.

Where I come from one of the key roles of a tent is to keep critters off you – so I’ve only included sealed options.

Big Agnes Seedhouse SL2 reviews | Review | ReviewLitekamper review Seedhouse SL2 – I have one of these – it took a while to come my way though. My decision making was based on the fact that I did not want a one person tent after my experience in my Blackwolf Bivy Bag.  I needed more room.  I went to REI in Chicago in December 2010 with the intention of buying a Hubba Hubba which was on sale.  However, when I picked up the Seedhouse in comparison I immediately rejected the Hubba Hubba idea – much larger as well as heavier.  The SL2 was noticeably more compact and lighter.  It was expensive, however, so I did not proceed at that time. A little later, after I got back home to Australia I found some closeout items for sale on the Big Agnes web site – so I bought an SL2 with  footprint plus an SL3 to cover most of my options – solo walking or with one or two kids. I have used this tent once on a single night through walk. Worked a treat and kept my son and I dry with some light falls through the night. Great investment from my perspective.  It has an inner layer which is all fly screen – open weave which is perfect for my moderate climate.

Helsport Ringstind Superlite 1-2RingstindSuperLight_1“One of the lightest 1 to 2 person tents in the world. This tent is designed for those who want a lightweight tent that still provides great interior space and functional details. Ringstind Superlight 1-2 has been created on the template of our most popular lightweight tent, Ringstind Light 2. The new Ringstind Superlight has everything a 3-season tent needs. Every detail on the tent has been designed with a focus on extreme lightweight, without comprimising on smart, functional details or durability. The tent weighs only 940g complete, including poles, pegs and guy-lines.

New lightweight, technical materials, quality assured by Helsport
Two large valves that can be closed. One at the entrance and one down in the footend
Several guy-line points. Two in the front, two in the middle by the pole and three in the footend, which also has three small poles that make it possible to use very short (50-75 cm) guy-lines. This makes the tent easy to set up, and stable in strong wind.

Nordisk Telemark 2tent_telemark2The 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 2oneplanet_gunyah_2The 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
