By Martin NordesjöIn 2015 Terra Nova will expand their cuben fiber "Ultra" series with a couple of two-person tents: the freestanding Solar Ultra 2 and the two-person version of the Laser Ultra. They are both allegedly "the lightest tents in the world" in their respective segment. Personally I don't give a further thought to claims like that, but lightweight multiperson tents always make me happy. The price tag will probably make me less happy.
|Terra Nova Solar Ultra 2: weight unknown|
"The lightest 2 person free-standing tent currently available". I have no data on the weight, but my guess is that it's below 1 kg.
|Terra Nova Laser Ultra 2: 695 g|
This is "The lightest 2 person tent currently available" according to Terra Nova. It weighs 695 g. Since it's a double walled construction, the inner can be removed when it's not needed.
|Vaude Invenio UL 3p|
Vaude seem to have three different lightweight designations: UL, SUL and GUL. This is an "UL" tent, but I don't know what that actually means in Vaude's world (in my limited world, there can be nothing beyond "ultra"). My guess is that the weight is just below a conventional tent of the same design. Somewhere around 2-3 kg maybe?
