Sub 1 kilo tents in a range of sizes and specs now available at Up and Under!

We are proud to inform you that we now stock Nordisk!

The Nordisk Telemark 1 ULW heads up the range of must have tents when weight matters. As a spaceous one person tent at 770g this tent is a serious consideration for two person mountain marathon and elite adventure race teams and seriously weight concious solo backpackers everywhere.
The single pole design is proven as the best balance of low weight for space as proven over the years by Saunders and Terra Nova, however, Nordisk have taken up the design and moved forward with an easier to pitch well priced design that has won us over good and proper. The Nordisk Telemark 1 LW is the same tent but using alloy poles rather than carbon ones which only adds an extra 60g but gives a bit more reliability / life.
For weight concious backpackers that share their accomdation we recommend looking at theNordisk Telemark 2 LW, again with alloy poles but with an extra 35cm of width in the inner tent for a tent that is still sub 1kg, this is awesome!

To compliment our fantastic Nordisk range we have a broad selection of tents from Lightwave that whilst usually slightly heavier are often more stable for mountain backpacking. Check out their range of 2 pole tunnel tents starting with the Lightwave T10 trek which is designed for solo backpacking and could be used a a two person event tent, and the Lightwave T20 trail which can be pitched all in one or inner or outer first and makes for a great roomy 2 person backpacking tent that is ideal for UK use. If you require more resilience to strong winds in open mountainous areas then a 3 pole geodesic is where it's at and we recommend the Lightwave g20 trek and g20 ultra the latter using even lighter and more robust fabrics.

Returning to the lightest type of tent architecture - the single pole design, we also stock the Wild Country Tents Zephyros 1 Lite and Zephyros 2 Lite which offer a slightly less expensive but heavier weight alternative to the Nordisk Telemark range.

We also have a few Nemo lightweight tents, bivibags and sleeping mats with 50% OFF RRP.
