An comfortable and easy-to-pitch tent with loads of great features: the Vaude Arco 1-2P is a solid 1-man tent that could work as a cosy 2-man tent as well! In terms of its overall quality and features, the tunnel tent is pretty impressive. It can not only be used for your first hill walking adventure of the spring but also for a cycling trip in the summer as well as a nice and relaxing evening to bring autumn to a close.
Vaude equipped both the outer tent as well as the floor with a durable PU coating. This not only makes the fabric robust but also gives the fly a hydrostatic head of 3,000mm and the floor 5,000mm. This along with cleverly placed guy lines will give you the protection you need on rainy days. All you need for pitching the Arco 1-2P is three guyout points. In bad weather and strong winds, you should use all nine pegs. Thanks to the two vents in the roof, youll always have a supply of fresh air.
Another nice feature: the 1-man tent has two entrances with vestibules. These will allow you to leave your gear and dirty shoes at the door. Plus, you and a travel buddy can have separate entrances as well as a place to cook. Whats more, one of the entrances will always be protected from wind and rain. The sturdy, yet lightweight aluminium poles are from Yunan, so no need to worry about unnecessary extra weight. This results in a tent that weighs less than 2 1/2 kilograms. Not bad at this price!
With the Vaude Arco 1-2P, solo explorers and/or groups of two with minimal gear will have a quality, lightweight and easy-to-pitch tunnel tent with loads of great features.
