The Ultrapack SW is an ultralight single wall 1 person tent with a packed weight of just 630g (minimum trail weight) and 710g packed weight (everything included).
A popular seller since 2015, improved and modified, tried and tested, resulting in a simple, effective ultralight shelter. A waterproof single wall tent designed with priority on low weight and small packed size - great if mobility is key to your camping adventure. Ideal for bike packing, minimalist camping, a back up shelter when huts are full or anyone looking for a bivy tent.
Note that this is an ultralight single wall tent so may not suit everyone expecting the same functions as a 2kg tent - there is a tradeoff to achieve the low weight. Keeping the tent well ventilated is important to minimize condensation on cold still nights as any condensation will be on the inside of the tent. More suitable for use in warmer conditions with less humidity. You should also know how to prevent and/or manage condensation.
