What Makes these Tents so Good?
The Divide was tested out on New Zealand’s Routeburn Track. Because of this you can be assured these tents are fit for use for New Zealand conditions. The Divide was used as a two person tent at the Lake Mackenzie campsite. It was a little snug keeping both hikers more than warm on a cold and rainy night. Using the Divide as a two person tent there was no room inside for the backpacks. These were kept outside using the pack liners to keep them dry.
Two layer tent with mesh inner tent to keep out the sandflies and other unwelcome insects. Unlike some light weight hiking tents the Divide hiking tent has an inner mesh tent which not only helps keep out insects it also helps the tents breathe reducing condensation build up. This inner mesh tent can be used on it’s own during the warmer nights so you can fall asleep looking at the stars.
The outer tent is made from ultralight weight 20D siliconized waterproof nylon. This fabric can handle 2000mm of rain which couples with the shape of the tent will shed off water quickly keep you dry during wet weather. The bottom of the tent uses heavier 40D siliconized tear proof Nylon which can handle up to 5000mm of water keeping the floor of the tent dry.
Taped seams prevent water leaking through the seams. All seams which are exposed to rain has been taped to stop the rain leaking through. This maximizes the waterproofness of the tent by sealing the holes made from stitched tent fabric together.
Weighs less than 900 grams making it one of the lightest hiking tents available. Because of tents ultralight weight you will have a lighter pack which means you can either take more gear with you or have a lighter pack. Either way it will result in a more enjoyable hiking experience.

Tips For Using These Tents
Use with a groundsheet. A groundsheet may add some weight o your pack however it is likely to not weigh as much extra as you think. This is because a groundsheet will keep the bottom of your tent dry and is a lot easier to dry than a whole tent. Wet fabric can double in weight. You can easily dry your ground sheet during the day as you hike by attaching it to the outside of your backpack.
Another benefit of using a groundsheet is it will protect the bottom of your tent and add an extra layer of insulation from the cold ground. These lightweight tents are tough but not as tough as a regular standard weight tent.
