Terra Nova Laser Photon 1 Tent

The Laser Photon 1 is perfect for travellers looking for the lightest kit with a small pack size or for mountain marathon and adventure racers. 

For medium duration backpacking trips this superlight tent is a good choice where the users key requirement is to minimise the weight of their kit (and prepared to compromise a little on space). The tent is rated for 3 season use and its low profile shape and design make it ideal for wild camping as well as campsite use.     The inner and flysheet come attached, so the tent pitches quickly and easily ‘as one’, a key benefit after a days racing. This style of tent is best suited to ground conditions where pegging out is possible. The low profile design creates a stable structure and Dyneema reflective guylines add extra support. 

The Laser Photon 1 is compatible with the Terra Nova FASTPACK system, this is a method of using a Footprint instead of the inner tent if conditions permit and is designed to trim even more weight and bulk from your rucksack. Footprints, which are available separately, cover the area under the inner and porch and are designed to prolong the life of the tent and help keep it clean. 
  • Extremely lightweight
  • Strong DAC NFL pole used over the centre of the tent
  • Door and end ventilation - there is a half midge proof mesh door and a mesh panel at each of the inner and flysheet (with waterproof cover) for good ventilation.

Note: Due to the super light nature of the material used in the tents construction Terra Nova are unable to factory seal the seams, in a conventional method. However they are positioned and sewn in a way that minimises water penetration and it's possible to add further protection yourself, with seam sealer, to fully waterproof the tent. A free black pole cover (tied on) is also supplied with the Laser tents to fully waterproof the main seam, add stability, protect the zip and add extra protection to the most exposed part of the tent to UV damage.
