The Southern Cross 2 tent is a completely freestanding lightweight tent suitable for 4 season backpacking. The Southern Cross 2 takes its design inspiration from the award winning Laser range of lightweight tents but includes an additional pole to provide extra stability and structure
Pitching is quick and easy as the flysheet and inner are erected as one and the flysheet and groundsheet are fully taped providing complete waterproof protection.
Due to its 100% freestanding nature, pegging is kept to a minimum when optimising its strength / weight ratio.There is a spacious inner and porch, the porch door can be fixed open in several ways to provide the most suitable weather protection for the current conditions.
