For ultimate light weight soloists and racing competitions the Lofoten 2 sets a new standard. The Nordisk Lofoten 2 person tent weighs in at a mere 500 grams.
Nordisk have created their own new 7 denier fabric which is triple layer silicon treated for a 1.6 meter hydrostatic head. This, in combination with a handful of innovative design features brings the weight of the Lofoten down below the half kilo mark, but the added advantage of such a thin material is the pack size is drastically reduced. If you are keen to shed grams then a reduced pack size means you can move toward a smaller rucksack or racepack and save even more precious grams.
The Lofoten is supplied with two accessory packs. The ‘Race’ accessory pack contains spares and titanium needle pegs weighing just one gram each, and the ‘Treck’ accessory pack has the heavier but more practical aluminium pegs and an additional pole for holding the door flap open to form a canopy.
Bonus Pack included
One innovative feature of the Lofoten 2 is the Fly sheet and pole are the same for both the one person and two person tents. If you choose the one person option you gain a useful vestibule for pack, but if you choose the two person option then the porch area is sacrificed to accommodate the larger inner, but you still have enough vestibule for two pairs of boots or running shoes.
Nordisk also make the one person or two person inner available separately as an aftermarket extra. That means if you have bought the one person tent, but then find yourself entered in a two person completion, you can just get an additional inner instead of a whole new tent. Visa versa, if you have bought the two person version and you decide you want to shave off a few grams and gain some porch space then you can do that too.
In addition, if you have the two person version but you are using it solo, the inner floor can be retracted to increase the vestibule area.
Here's what Nordisk say about the Lofoten:
"The Lofoten is a revolutionary new invention by its design and simplicity.
A high level of performance is achieved by use of the ultimate latest generation development of components and materials.
Weight and pack size in a league of its own with new targets and standards reached."
