How many seasons is this tent rated for? Can I use this tent year round?

  • The Hopper 2 Pro is a 3-season tent. It is not a 4-season alpine tent. These tents are versatile and prioritize breathability, ventilation, and protection from New Zealand’s challenging weather conditions. Note that while these tents are great for the majority of camping situations, they are not recommended for winter alpine camping or extreme weather conditions when specialized alpine tents designed for winter or 4-season are more appropriate.

What is silnylon? How is it different to polyester?

  • Silicone-coated nylon (silnylon) often with a polyurethane PU coating in the underside and polyester with a polyurethane (PU) coating are two different types of materials used in the construction of camping tents. A thinner, lighter silnylon fabric than more traditional thicker polyester makes for a lighter & more compact packed tent. The silicone coating adds to tear strength and a waterproof PU coating means seams can be taped. For more info on tent fabrics read here.

What is the difference between the Hopper 2 Pro and the Hopper 2 tents?

  • The tent design is the same tried & tested design used in previous models but the fabric and some of the componentry has been upgraded. The Hopper 2 Pro is made using a lighter silnylon fabric making it around 300g lighter with a smaller packed size. It also has YKK zips, hi-viz zipper pulls and tensioners, and comes in a green fly and grey floor. The Hopper 2 Polyester tent is made using a thicker, heavier polyester fabric meaning it is a little heavier at 2.5kg and is a little less compact than the 2 Pro. It also uses standard zips and zipper pulls. The Hopper 2 Polyseter is available in Olive green and Orang colours.

Is this suitable for 2 people?

  • The Hopper 2 Pro is a great 2 person tent with near vertical inner walls which maximise the internal space. Double entrances make for easy entry and exit and it features 2 vestibule storage areas.

Is this tent waterproof?

  • Yes, the Tracker has a PU3000mm coating on the fly and PU5000mm on the floor. These ratings will handle most weather conditions in NZ. For more info on waterproofing see here

Do I need a groundsheet?

  • A groundsheet is optional – you can use this tent in full confidence without a groundsheet. The groundsheet is designed specifically for this tent and sits a few cm inside the inner floor to ensure that water does not get trapped in between. There are aluminium eyelets at the corners that can be used to hold it in place. The groundsheet offers:
    • greater protection of the tent floor extending its life
    • keeps the floor clean
    • boosts floor waterproofing in wet conditions
    • provides an extra layer of insulation
    • reduces moisture rising up and causing condensation
    • ability to set up the tent fly first or fly without the inner
