Ultralight and Ultraportable tents are in great demand all across the globe. The market for Ultralight tents is really competitive and when a company like Geertop comes around singing praises for its new product, we have to take notice. So let’s see if Geertop Backpacking Tent – Ultralight 1 Person 3-Season is everything its hyped up to be. This tent is in the 100.00 range and offers a lot of value.
Features of the Geertop Ultralight Hiking Tent
Claimed by Geertop to be the lightest tent of its kind on the market weighing only 1.98 lbs. This lightweight tent also has it advantages since it is relatively quick and easy to set up. One person can set the tent up in less than 10 minutes.
One of the biggest problems tent owners face is condensation. So a proper and effective ventilation solution is a must for any outdoor tent. Fortunately, Geertop thought of this and it included a total of 2 adjustable vents for improved ventilation. This system of ventilation works surprisingly well.
Aside from a well thought out ventilation system, a spacious vestibule makes sure that you have all the room you need to store your gear. This tent checks an important box with the well designed vestibule.
The tent itself is very well made. The materials used for the tent, 15D PU-3000 mm waterproof double Silicon coated Nylon fabric for the outer tent and 210D PU -2500 mm waterproof double Silicon coated Oxford fabric for the inner tent, both materials are quite durable.
As the name suggests, Geertop Backpacking Tent – Ultralight 1 Person 3-Season, is perfectly usable for 3 seasons. While the tent can withstand heavy snow and wind if pegged strong enough, Geertop advises against it, we assume the harshness of winter and weight of snow. It is strictly a 3 season tent.
Any outdoor needs to be visible in the dark. Geertop includes reflective ropes (very smart idea) and strips in their ultralight tent to make it safe for outdoor use. This tent is perfectly visible outdoors even in pitch black condition.
To make the setting up process even easier there is a purpose built buckle to tie the rope. This buckle significantly reduces the time it takes to set up the tent and in emergency situations can prove quite handy.
