The Laser, from Terra Nova Equipment, is the company's lightest two-person tent. In fact, it is one of the lightest two-person double-wall tents in the world. Updated in 2009 to include some "comfort" improvements, the Laser makes use of lightweight materials like its 1.34 oz/yd2 (35 g/m2) silnylon fly to achieve a BPL measured trail weight* of 2.72 pounds (1.23 kg). How does the Laser do as a three-season backpacking tent? Let me shine a light on it...
*Note: Terra Nova's trail weight is stated at a lower weight of 2.47 pounds (1.12 kg). As their trail weight does not include stakes, and my testing indicated that at least six are required for set-up, the BPL trail weight is higher.
