MSR Zoic 2 Tent
Toby Archer enjoys the living space on offer from this summer-oriented backpacking tent, but he's not sure it's the best choice for the UK's full-on wet weather.
The Macpac Microlight is a classic 1 person backpacking tent that's been in the Macpac range for decades. It's changed a little over the years but its core features remain the same.
Using a single ridge pole, the Microlight tent is designed to minimise weight, shed snow and remain stable in high winds. We chose to make the fly out of UV30™ SI, a silicone-coated fabric known for its strength, water resistance and UV protection. Please note, this fly needs to be manually seam sealed with SilNet™ seam sealer (provided). The floor is built with our legendary Torrentwear™ XP tub, designed to be waterproof and durable. We've incorporated the Multi-Pitch™ system, allowing you to pitch the fly independent of the inner so that the inner stays dry when packing up in wet conditions.
Designed for the backpacker or climber, the single vestibule provides enough space for cooking and some gear storage. To insulate for four-season warmth, we've built the inner out of ripstop nylon and included a large double door that can provide airflow when it gets hot. We've created a unique vent system that encourages airflow, managing condensation without compromising insulation. The Microlight tent is designed to support a single person above and below the snowline through all four seasons. Warmer than the two-season Sololight tent, but also slightly heavier, the Microlight is the best choice if you value durability and wish to comfortably use a tent in full alpine conditions.
