The Laser Compact 1 is the smaller pack size version of the award winning one person backpacking tent the Laser Competition 1. The predecessor to the Laser Competition 1 (the Laser Lite) was released in 2004 as the first 1kg tent on the market, sparking a trend for lightweight tent development with the Laser design becoming the de-facto standard for lightweight tents. The Laser Compact 1 has poles which pack down to just 30cm.

The Laser Compact 1 is designed for backpackers, travellers and cyclists looking for tried and tested kit with a good balance of durability and very low weight. This tent is suitable for medium duration backpacking trips, mountain marathons and cycle touring and is rated for 3 season use, so perfect for spring to autumn weather conditions. Its low-profile design and shape make it ideal for both wild camping as well as campsite use. Although it is a 1-person tent for overnight stays it could also be used as snug accommodation for 2.

The compact pack size offering a pack length of only 30cm allows for optimal positioning within your backpack. This quality makes this piece of kit perfect for bike packing, cycle touring and adventure racing.

We've included a handy webbing loop at the bottom of the flysheet door to accomodate a trekking pole, enabling you to create a useful canopy.

The Laser Compact 1 is very lightweight. With 20 denier flysheet fabric, the flysheet and inner come attached, so the tent can be pitched quickly and easily ‘as one’. This tent is best suited to ground conditions where pegging out is a possibility. The low-profile design ensures a stable structure along with Dyneema reflective guylines, which are three times stronger than standard guyrope to add extra support.

Fully Compatible with Terra Nova FastPack system (FastPack weight: 0.58kg)*

The Laser Compact 1 tent uses Terra Nova Watershed groundsheet and flysheet fabrics. The silicone coated flysheet fabric cannot be seam sealed in a conventional way, due to this the tent has been technically designed to prevent water penetration into the inner. The end flysheet seams have been positioned so they are not over the inner and a removable waterproof pole cover is supplied with the tent to ensure the main seam is fully waterproof. This also adds stability in poor weather and protects the zip. The groundsheet is seam sealed for waterproof protection.

A DAC alloy pole is used for the main pole with additional alloy poles at each end. There are also reflective tapes around the pole sleeve to help its ease of pitching and location. The inner door is half mesh which is midge proof with mesh panels at each end of the flysheet and inner (with waterproof cover) to ensure effective ventilation.

Important Information

*This is a method of using a Footprint instead of the inner tent if conditions permit and is designed to trim even more weight and bulk from your rucksack. Footprints, which are available separately, cover the area under the inner and porch of the tent, they are designed to prolong the life of the tent and help keep it clean. For FASTPACK tents a Footprint must be used if the inner tent is not to provide the tension and anchor points required by the poles.

Due to the super light nature of the material used in the tents construction we are unable to factory seal the seams, in a conventional method. However they are positioned and sewn in a way that minimises water penetration and it's possible to add further protection yourself, with seam sealer, to fully waterproof the tent. A free black pole cover (tied on) is also supplied with the Laser tents to fully waterproof the main seam, add stability, protect the zip and add extra protection to the most exposed part of the tent to UV damage.

Guarantee: This Terra Nova product is guaranteed to the original owner against defects in materials and workmanship for the lifetime of the product.
