Ultralight Hiking Tent RockTrail

.

.

Presentation:

I’ve got this tent from one of the owner of Atypik’s: Mylène.
Indeed I had only a big tent before, my Quechua T4 ultralight Pro but it was too heavy and too big for only one person.

I would like her tent because it was really light  and it doesn’t use too much space in a backpack.

.

Using time: 1 month

.

Advantages:

.

Price
Weight (1.5 kg)

Space inside the tent
Compact once time is folded
Fast to put up

.

.

Weaknesses:

.

.

Bad air circulate (air vents always closed)
Single roof (condensation)

.

.

About the air vents:

I think I’ve condensation inside the tent because the air vents at the back were always closed. But I found a solution to resolve this problem. I made spacer with a rigid plastic bottle and Velcro on each side (like on my Quechua T4 Ultrlight Pro) to keep them open. Now the air can circulate better.

To limit the condensation, I put up your tent under the shade and I sleep only with the mosquito net closed. Indeed the temperature between the night and the day doesn’t change a lot under the shade and now I don’t have any problem.

.

Now the only bad thing is about the zip. Sometimes it gets stuck with a thread which holds in place the carbon fibre inside the tent.

.

Instructions:

  • Cut 2 pieces of 40×120 mm in a rigid plastic bottle (control what you need for your air vent)
  • Sew a different Velcro on each side between the 2 plastic parts and stick all together
