WINNER - Win a Macpac Microlight Tent Competition


WINNER: RussellM73

The Macpac Microlight is a classic 1 person backpacking tent that's been in the Macpac range for decades. It's changed a little over the years but its core features remain the same.

The Microlight is a durable, spacious and weather resistant 1 person tent for backpacking. It has a single DAC Featherlite NSL pole design which maximises space vs weight, remains stable in high winds and sheds snow easily. The fly fabric is Macpac's own UV30 SI silicone coated nylon that provides good tear strength and water proofing.

The Microlight uses Macpac's legendary Torrentwear XP bathtub groundsheet. It's a little heavier than some groundsheets out there but it's very waterproof and exceptionally durable.

The Macpac Microlight is a great tent for serious backpacking in the UK and abroad in all but the very worst winter conditions.
