- Lightwave T2 Ultra (experiences and PSA)
Not got one but never heard anything bad about them I doubt they are Hilleberg good but for £225 sounds a good deal. I doubt it will be as sturdy in high winds as the quasar though as that is a geo tent though tunnel tents really do perform well the just flex. Not totaly sure it will be complete 4 season if you are going to camp on top of the cairngorms in winter with 80mph winds .
If you want to go pimp then what about one of these 😀Posted 4 years ago
Yeah, my main issue was that I didn’t want to look at getting another TN or Hilleberg, since I don’t want two expensive/bombproof tents that do essentially the same job.
I do quite a lot of high camps in winter, but would always take the Quasar for that (easier to pitch on snow/rock and tough as old boots), so this would be for everything other than mental weather.
From what i’ve heard, build quality on Lightwave tents is supposed to be excellent, at least rivalling TN, so seems like it could be a winner.Posted 4 years ago
Just spotted this on SportPursuit
Down from £450 to £225.
Been looking for a sub 2kg, 4 season tent for ages now, but my third requirement, reasonable price, was hard to satisfy!
Has anyone used this tent?
I’ve just bought a Wild Country Zephyros 2 yesterday to use when wild camping as an alternative to lugging around my Super Quasar (4.5kg) in summer, but it’s tiny in comparison, plus I wouldn’t want to/be able to use it in winter.
The T2 Ultra is the same size internally as my Super Quasar, which is a MAJOR plus.
A 4 season, roomy, 2kg tent with excellent quality build quality for £225 seems like a no brainer…any reasons why I should avoid?Posted 4 years agoSandwichSubscriber
Nice and lightweight tent. I have the extended flysheet on mine. Can be fiddley to put up as the flysheet on mine goes on after the inner, Hillebergs go up in one with no chance of getting the inner wet.Posted 4 years ago
The material on the Lightwaves can be fragile, I holed mine rolling it up on the patio, it now gets rolled on grass.
aye, it’s crazy. I put it up in the house and it’s even worse than on paper – the head and foot areas come down quite significantly, which means that my face would almost be touching the roof when lying on an exped mat. 2 expeds don’t even fit in. It’s going back today.Posted 4 years ago
