Lightwave is a small, specialist brand dedicated to making high-quality, functional and honest gear designed for genuine outdoor enthusiasts – people who prefer to think for themselves about the sort of equipment they want, rather than accept the features-driven designs that so many brands insist they need. Lightwave's functional approach means that all Lightwave products are uncluttered by unnecessary extras that add weight and complexity.
Lightwave's Trail tunnel tents combine the design qualities of the top-of-the-range Hyper models with the fabric and pole specifications of our established and highly regarded trek range. The result is outstanding all-round performance at a reasonable price.
The Trail tents offer the same multi-pitch options as the Hyper range. This means they can be erected flysheet-first, inner-tent first, or integrally. The fabrics used in the trail tents strike an excellent balance of strength and weight, with a slight bias towards strength in order to cope with robust handling and to maintain long-term durability. The poles are not the lightest available but possess tremendous resilience when it comes to absorbing stress. Each trail tent comes with two types of peg to cover different ground conditions – from hard-packed earth to loose sandy soil.
