Much is said about the compromises made in many sub-kilo tents, space, strength, features, we just have to keep hoping that materials technology and design keep developing and improving the kit at the current pace.
These ForceTen Heliums are billed at just under and just over a kilo (exact weights later), but come with the TBS Pro – Tension Band System for wild weather security, properly waterproof fabrics, and no lack of features for use and livability, reflective detailing, inner pockets, repair kit and it pitches as one.
So what are we missing? Nothing is coming to mind right now I have to say.
The 100 will be the next tent I take out, so I’ll have more info shortly.
