A blind devotion to absolute light-weight in solo tents often results in disappointing field performancewhen it really matters. A fresh breeze will show up worrying instability. Real foul weather can jeopardise the trip. The Dart is true, free-standing solo tent combining excellent storm strength and stability with great ventilation, generous floor area and useful vestibule space. With the waterproof outer skin removed, the insect-proof, mesh-walled inner remains as a perfect dry-season enclosure for those warm, starry nights. For higher latitudes where wet and cold combine the Winter version, due in 2011, is a great alternative.
