Weighing just 1.7 pounds (trail weight), the Terra Nova Laser Photon now holds the Guinness World Record for the lightest tent, specifically "the lightest two-skin tent commercially available." It's targeted for mountain marathons and adventure racers, but it's actually well-suited for ultralight backpacking. My review evaluates the efficacy of the Laser Photon in relation to the previously reviewed Terra Nova Laser Competition and Hilleberg Akto and the new Terra Nova Laser Elite and Tarptent Scarp 1+. How do these ultralight double wall solo tents compare in terms of livability, weight, and value?
