Keri Wallace's 10 of the best one-person tents review for Runner's World makes it clear that the Polestar tent stands out as a fantastic value option for those seeking an affordable, lightweight, yet sturdy twin-skin hiking pole tent.
The Polestar is an affordable twin-skin hiking pole tent. This is a lightweight but durable model for a very reasonable price, I found it to be ideal for running adventures where I already had my poles with me.
With only one short tent pole included, the Polestar takes advantage of existing running or hiking poles for setup, dramatically reducing its weight and making it a practical choice for camping on running adventures when you're already equipped with poles. The initial setup process might require some learning, but it's straightforward once mastered.
The Polestar manages to impressively combine compact design with a generous porch area, providing ample space despite its petite size. Furthermore, the tent excels in ventilation thanks to its effective vent, enhancing comfort during use.
With a commendable 5000mm hydrostatic head, the Polestar's groundsheet proves highly waterproof. Moreover, the tent's durability does not compromise its lightweight nature, making it a truly efficient camping companion for outdoor adventurers.
In essence, the Polestar comes highly recommended as a lightweight, durable, and cost-effective choice ideal for running or hiking expeditions where carrying your own poles isn't an issue.
