The Terra Nova Solar Photon 2 Tent has been updated with stronger poles. It still remains one of the lightest self supporting 2 man tents currently on the market.

Terra Nova says

The first lightest 2-person self-supporting tent in the world! With stable design and easy to pitch.

Featuring front and rear fly hoods for great ventilation and its stable shape has been designed for use in poor weather. the Solar Photon 2 is compatible with the Terra Nova FASTPACK system which allows those who want to trim weight further when conditions permit, to use the flysheet and the fastpack groundsheet which is available separately.

Our Verdict

Terra Nova's Solar Photon 2 Tent still remains one of the lightest self supporting 2 man tents available. However having such a low weight inevitably means a few compromises - such as space and headroom.

It's by no means the roomiest of the two man tents available but there's enough room for up to 2 people with gear kept in the porch or for 1 person with more gear. If your using it for 2 people then it's best to check the width of your sleeping mats to make sure they both fit in side by side, if not there's no harm in over lapping.

The great thing about free standing tents, is that they are quick to pitch, and if you find that you had pitched over a rocky area, it takes seconds to move. The small pack size and low weight makes the Solar Photon 2 ideal for backpacking and adventure races.
