Polestar is a sub-1kg, tiny pack size, twin-skin 1-person tent that uses trekking or running poles so you can pack smaller and lighter and do away with a separate main pole.

Perfect for ultra-lightweight multi-day hiking such as the South West Coast Path or the Cape Wrath Trail, Polestar has a stable crossed pole design with a durable ripstop flysheet for use in 3 seasons.

Polestar is side-entry, quick to pitch and is compatible with all adjustable or fixed length trekking or running poles between 120-130cm (optimised for 125cm). The groundsheet waterproofing is strong at 3,000mmHH. It has a good-sized porch and an effective vent for improved ventilation.

It can also be pitched outer only for an even simpler lighter weight shelter.

Awarded Best Value by Runners World they say: '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.'
