Reviewing the NatureHike 2 Man Ultralight Silicone Tent - 10th & 11th December 2016

Hi Guys,

We were happy to receive a pretty satisfied review from one of our customers, Doc Nurse, the other day (see Doc's tent review here) and his one reservation was the fact that he didn't get the chance to see how the tent handled in rainy weather.

Now anyone who lives in or around Devon knows that last Saturday afternoon and evening was more than a little damp! So, to address Doc's reservations, we decided, "what the heck, let's go camping!"

Testing the Naturehike 2 Man Ultralight Silicone Tent

Grabbing the pooch, a sleeping bag and a few bits and bobs, we set off for Postbridge - Dartmoor NP, arriving around 3:30. After traipsing down river a little ways, we pulled off the path and pitched up.

First things first, one of Doc's reservations was the fact that you have to pitch this tent inner fly first and he's right, it does allow a little bit of rain in while you're pitching, having said that, the large pole attachment clips and logical layout allow for really quick assembly and the tent goes up very quickly even with a bit of rain and a rather excitable pooch in tow.

Once the tent is up however, it's bullet proof. Even with a fairly reasonable wind blowing and rain belting down, it keeps the weather out nicely. As with most tents, leaning against the exterior will let moisture in through capillary action which can be a pain when camping with animals but as far as the structural waterproofing of the tent, A+.

As far as being a compact and lightweight tent, this little beast really is phenomenal. It weighs in at 1.8kgs and when packed away has dimensions of 400mm x 150mm x 150mm. If you're chasing a lightweight, quick to assemble, waterproof tent, for the money, you can't go passed the NatureHike 2 Man Ultralight Silicone Tent.

Apologies that this weeks blog is so short but I'm afraid beyond Wendy deciding winter was a good time to go for a swim in the lovely River Dart, we didn't get up to too much of interest!

If anyone has any questions, please post them in the comments section and I'll send you an email directly. I'm afraid we haven't setup the ability to respond directly on the blog but will come back to you as soon as we're able!

Thanks for reading!

    Hi Marco,

    It is a snug fit but I think a 200cm would fit. You will have to keep your pack and gear on top of the mattress with you or pushed to the side. The tent doesn’t have a large vestibule by any means (enough room to keep your boots dry) but I suppose it’s a case of horses for courses. If you want a lightweight compact, there’s always going to be some trade off.

    Hope this helps!
