This 2 man tent has been designed for year round backpacking trips and is also well suited for group, Duke of Edinburgh or Scout use in more exposed conditions. The Trisar range has ventilation front and back, the front vent can be adjusted from the inside of the tent while the back vent is opened or closed from the outside. The flysheet door is particularly versatile, opening from the top, bottom or fastening at the side, allowing you to cater for changes in weather and weather direction. The Trisar range uses Wild Country Superflex alloy poles and tried and tested Wild Country, high performance flysheet and groundsheet fabrics.
Groundsheet protectors (footprints) to prolong the life of the tent and help keep it clean can be purchased separately.

Questions & Answers
Have a Question?
Be the first to ask a question about this.
First, the bad things about this tent:
1. The stuff sack split the first time I used it and not even along the seam, so poor is its quality. Luckily I still have a stuff sack from my old Terra Nova Trisar, of which this tent is a downgrade. So far after two trips the other materials seem robust enough.
2. This is not suitable for leaving pitched for days at high altitude, as the tent has warnings that UV light will damage the waterproofing of the outer.
Now the good:
1. Many features are an improvement on my much loved Terra Nova Trisar. The poles and where they go are colour coded, a closable ventilation opening is at the top of the tent, there is a closable window in the porch.
2. I can sit up in this tent.
3. It has good stability in the wind.
4. It can be pitched quickly and easily in the rain. (It gets criticised in many reviews for the design which requires you to pitch the inner first in the rain; the trick is to pitch the inner upside down and have the flysheet half attached when you turn the inner and outer the right way up; yes, it picks up a small amount of moisture from wet grass and side-slanting rain, but it doesn't drip and it dries out from your body heat)
