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

The Tracker 2 Pro is a 3-season tent. While not a 4-season alpine tent it has specs that can handle year-round use and handles winds well. These tents are versatile and prioritize breathability, ventilation, and protection from rain and wind to handle New Zealand’s challenging weather conditions. Note that while these tents are excellent 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 fabric? 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. Read here for more on tent fabrics and coatings   

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

The tent design is the same tried and tested design used since 2012 but the fabric and some of the componentry has been upgraded. The Tracker 2 Pro is made using a lighter silnylon fabric making it around 250g lighter with a smaller packed size. It also features YKK zips, hi-viz zipper pulls and tensioners, and comes in a green fly and grey floor. The Tracker 2 Polyester tent is made using a thicker, heavier polyester fabric meaning it is a little heavier at 1.95kg and packs down a little heavier that the Pro version, with standard zips and zipper pulls available in Olive green and Orange colours.

Is this tent suitable for 2 people?

The Tracker 2 is a great option for people looking for a tent with plenty of room for 1 person but also has the option of accommodating 2 people if needed. It’s a roomy 1 person tent and cosy 2 person. The Tracker 2 floor has a 130cm wide inner at the entrance and tapers off to 100cm at the foot end.

Is this tent waterproof?

Yes, the Tracker has a PU3000mm PU coating on the fly and PU5000mm on the floor. These ratings will handle most weather conditions in NZ. Read our intro on tent waterproofing 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 and extra layer of insulation
  • reduces moisture rising up and causing condensation
  • ability to set up the tent fly first or fly without the inner
