The Terra Nova Solar Photon 1 is at the forefront of superlight tent design and at a mere 865 g it has the lightest packed weight of any self-supporting tent currently available. Made from the same cutting-edge fabrics as the Terra Nova Laser Photon 1 tent, the Solar Photon 1 is designed especially for superlight solo backpacking. The clever design of the Solar Photon 1 tent allows room to sit up and access the porch, while the single pole finish at the foot end keeps the space required to pitch it to a minimum. For superlight backpackers who want a tent they can use in all but the worst conditions, the Solar Photon 1 is the ultimate balance of space, features and weight. This tent is compatible with the Terra Nova FASTPACK system, allowing those who want to trim weight further when conditions permit, to use the flysheet and the fastpack groundsheet which is available separately.

I have had this tent now for 3 years and it has been through high winds, serious rain, even snow. I have use it on ten thousand plus feet summits and it has never failed me. Strong and solid but light as a bivy sac with all the benefits of a tent. I recently have come to own the two man version as well and will highly recommend these tents to anyone who backpacks.
