Terra Nova Laser Competition 2 tent £390

Compact and cosy touring shelter

BikeRadar score 3/5

Small, compact and very cosy, this two-person 1.3kg (2.87lb) tunnel tent packs down to about the size of a loaf of bread – and not much heavier – if you pack the Featherlite poles separately. The poles themselves fit easily in a pannier. 

We were impressed with how quickly this went up, forming a cosy shelter in minutes. But it felt less substantial than others we've tried, and the light titanium pegs were too flimsy, bending easily even in softer ground. 

Swap in tougher pegs and this tent will be worth considering if low weight is important.
