The Terra Nova Solar Photon 2 Tent is the lightest 2-person self-supporting tent in the world! Featuring front and rear fly hoods for great ventilation and a stable shape that 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. Due to the super light nature of the material used in the tents construction Terra Nova is unable to factory seal the seams in the conventional method. However they are positioned and sewn in a way that minimizes water penetration and it is possible to add further protection yourself, with seam sealer, to fully waterproof the tent.

This tent is a must have for anyone that likes to be spontaneous with their camping. It's extremely light and packs down very small. It's extremely easy to put up and take down. In the winter this tent works great. It has a rain tarp that has multiple points of contact to the ground which gives you a stable, non-flapping shelter on those windy and cold nights. In the summer you can put up just the body of the tent (no rain tarp) and this tent breathes extremely well. The best part is the fabric of the body is yellow so you wake up to a beautiful yellow morning. The solar photon 2 also looks super cool. It's extremely photogenic with an epic mountain or dense forest behind it.
