Series Small Tents: One of the goals of the FuiAcampar for the year 2013 is to make a series of reviews about small tents, for one or two people. The goal is to assist adventurers in choosing equipment according to your profile, informing about the features and functionality of each. Differentiating more tents tents more general techniques, or indicating best options for treks, Wild camping or structured.
Update! This model now has 2 versions: withrods and fiberglass (original), weighing about 3, 3 kg and with value in the range is $5,000 and the new version, with aluminum rods, weighing 2.6 kg and with value in the range of R$670.
Tent 2 Quota, Trails & Directions, is included in this group of tents. In addition to using and testing by the FuiAcampar Team, for the preparation of this review we have the partner contribution Marcos Martinez, of the MundoCruxsite, which has this model of tent for over 5 years.
Our overall impression about the product is that the tent is a great option for single or double use, with great features and being tough.
Grants below our views on several aspects:
Structure: The quota 2 is an igloo sleeping bag, which differs from the other tents for having a structure with the rods crossing in two distinct points (mostly the igloos, the two main rods intersect just in Centre). With this format a little different, the first Assembly ends up being a little more complicated, but just follow the colors indicated on the rods and no mistake. This characteristic, of rods crossed twice, also ensures that it is highly resistant against strong winds.
The tent is also freestanding, that is, she is standing (mounted) even without the espeques, allowing you to move the tent already armed for choosing the best place.
Size: The tent room has 2.10 x 1.32 m, which accommodates two people with a certain comfort. If people are not very high, it is worth including some equipment at the toes. If you are the type of person that exceeds the amount of junk, you can still count on the avancê space. The bedroom walls if narrow enough toward the ceiling, that is, if you use an inflatable mattress to sleep you already lose a little of the width of the room.
The your time allows you to sit comfortably and change clothes in the room.
Weight: The Dimensional weight is 3.3 kg 2, which can be relatively heavy for those who want to carry her in a backpack or over long distances. But not to be a problem for anyone who is traveling with the comfort of a car.
Volume: The fact that the packaging of it be bulky (your width is 64 cm) makes it harder to transport your bike rack, or attached to the top or bottom of a cargo bag. Therefore, if you need to walk with her for long distances, it is advisable to dismantle the parts of it to be loaded inside the backpack.
Resistance: Its structure, with Rails crossed twice, giving the tent a good resistance to high winds. The seams are sealed and the sobreteto (when new) resists 2000 mm of water columnwhich gives tranquility to heavy rains during the weekend. It must withstand the storms, but for this it is necessary that your mount is perfect to prevent infiltrations below, through Windows or by room with sobreteto counted.
Avancê: The avancê space is one of the facilities. In this part, which has about 78 cm in length, it is possible to accommodate some equipment and even a cargo bag.
Pockets: There are four pockets on the sides of the room and one below the door, facilitating storage of equipment that need to be at hand. Another very interesting accessory is a door-gadgets that can be fitted on the ceiling of the tent, like a little net. Can be useful, but this decreases somewhat the inner height of the center of the tent.
By ta: The tent has a door whose latch opens in full 360°. A different feature of the majority of the tents and quite handy! In addition, a portion of the door has a window with mosquito net, to aid ventilation and prevent the entry of insects.
Window: On the sides of the tent, there are two Windows with mosquito net that facilitate air exchange with the external environment, especially at night, to avoid the condensation of breath to wet the inside of the tent. There are also a few props that help keep these Windows open or closed (as shown in the detail below).
Evaluation and Information
Positive points: The tent has a good resistance to wind and rain. Has an adequate space to be used by two people and your advance offers extra comfort.
Negative points: It’s pretty heavy when compared to similar sized tents.
Recommendation of use: Tent 2 Quota, of trails and Paths, is recommended for use of a with a lot of comfort or two people.Good for camping out in a few days, both in Wild camping, as structured. Despite being a small tent, she is heavy and bulky, features that don’t make it the best option for trekking or some other adventure in which is necessary to carry a tent for long distances. Unless load weight is not a problem, or that you have as separate parts of the tent and share it with someone.
