8 in stock
The Terra Nova Laser Competition 1 has become the classic, one-person backpacking tent and has received multiple industry ‘Best In Test’ awards.
Updated in 2017 with new end pole design for easier pitching and ventilating.
The forerunner to the Laser Competition 1 (the Laser Lite) was first launched in 2004 and was the first 1kg tent in the market. It sparked a trend for lightweight tent development and the Laser design became the de-facto standard for lightweight tents. The tent is designed for travellers and backpackers looking for tried and tested weight saving kit with a good balance of low weight and durability. It is suitable for medium duration backpacking trips and mountain marathons and is rated for 3 season use, so spring to autumn weather conditions.
Its low profile shape and design make it ideal for wild camping as well as campsite use. Although it is a 1 person tent for overnight stays it can be used to sleep 2.Very lightweight. 20 denier flysheet fabrict,the inner and flysheet come attached, so the tent pitches quickly and easily ‘as one’. This style of tent is best suited to ground conditions where pegging out is possible. The low profile design creates a stable structure and Dyneema reflective guylines, which are three times as strong as standard guyrope, add extra support. A DAC NFL alloy pole is used for the main pole with additional alloy poles at each end of the tent. There are handy reflective tapes around the pole sleeve to help its location and ease of pitching. The inner door is half mesh which is midge proof and there are mesh panels at each end of the inner and flysheet (with waterproof cover) to ensure good ventilation.
The Laser Competition 1 tent uses Terra Nova Watershed flysheet and groundsheet fabrics. As the silicone coated flysheet fabric cannot be seam sealed in a conventional way, the tent has been cleverly designed to prevent water penetration into the inner. The end flysheet seams have been positioned so they are not directly over the inner and a removable waterproof pole cover is supplied with the tent to fully waterproof the main seam. This also protects the zip and adds stability in poor weather. The groundsheet however is seam sealed for waterproof protection.
