  • I don't sell any of these nor do I receive any remuneration if you buy them, and I have not personally reviewed all of them, they are listed here to give you perspective
  • any prices mentioned are subject to change, and any Aliexpress prices do not include GST
  • trekking pole tents are NOT recommended for some trails such as the Larapinta Trail in Australia where finding secure peg options can be difficult - freestanding wind resistant tents are preferred on this trail

Introduction

  • these are one or two person ultralight hiking tents designed to be used with trekking pole(s) and are thus not freestanding
  • some of these require trekking pole(s) with adjustments from 110 to 135cm!
    • some trekking poles only extend to 125cm
    • the medium-large poles generally extend 110-140cm but often have larger grips than the small-medium poles which only extend to 125cm
    • some larger tents such as the Liteway Scout Tent 3P require 165cm centre pole and this can be achieved by binding your two trekking poles together
  • when used with a fly these have poor cross ventilation as they do not have a rear door or a window so not good for warm weather!
    • you may be able to remove the fly on some designs but then this will not help if it is hot humid and raining
  • these require secure pegs into each of the four corners for stability - this can be problematic in rocky areas or sand

Ultralight single side door styles

Plowpoint tapered wind-resistant styles

  • the inner tent needs to be pegged out on all 4 corners then the head end attached to elevated guy line to a trek pole(s) or tree to lift it up and keep it taut
  • door is at the head end, hopefully opposite to the wind!
  • the fly or tarp is generally pegged down at the foot end which minimises wind resistance and attaches to trek pole(s) or guy line to a tree with options of pegging down the sides or leaving one side open for visibility

      • 540g; floor: 5000mm 40D Sil/PeU Nylon Ripstop; white noseeum mesh;
