The best one man tent should be big enough for you to sleep comfortably in, with enough room to sit up and store your supplies. It should also be compact enough to carry around without causing you any hassle while you’re moving between camps, or heading up the trail.
Look out for Thermo-taped seams, mosquito nets and little porches, to help make your camping trips safer and more enjoyable. We’ve tried to pick tents which are suitable for taller people, too, since nobody likes to feel all cramped up after a long day hiking and exploring.
Terra Nova Southern Cross 1 Tent
‘Sturdy free-standing tent with a porch.’
You can’t really expect too many fancy add-ons when it comes to lightweight one-person tents, but the Nova Southern Cross does come with a handy porch area, for when you need place to get ready, keep your shoes to dry, or whatever, without having them battered by wind and rain.
Size and weight
With a packed weight of 1.6kg, it’s really not too heavy at all, and at 2.2m by 1m, the Terra Nova Southern Cross 1 Tent is roomy enough to sleep comfortably with your belongings, with enough room to sit up during the night, when you’re woken up by the sound of Bigfoot.
The Terra Nova Southern Cross 1 Tent features an extra sturdy top pole, which helps keep the tent grounded and secure. It’s free-standing, so you can pitch it pretty much anywhere there’s ground to get purchase on, and the little front porch is something we love, for comfort and practical reasons.
Polyester, inner and outer layers pitch together.
More challenging camping trips, boot camps and weekends away.
