Highlander Blackthorn 1 Solo Backpacking Tent

The Highlander Blackthorn 1 is your gateway to freedom on the trail. This ultralight tent allows you to shave precious grams off your pack weight, so you can cover more miles easily.

This solo camping tent weighs a mere 1.5kg (including the stuff sack) and packs down to 35*12*15cm, so you can easily fit it into your pack without sacrificing valuable space.

But don’t let its small size fool you – this tent still packs a punch when it comes to protection from the elements. The durable ripstop PU-coated fabric is waterproof to 2,000mm, and the taped seams are wind-resistant, keeping you dry and protected.

The Blackthorn 1 promises a fast pitch in just 5 minutes with its pre-attached guylines and straightforward design. This feature allows you to pitch the tent quickly after long hikes or in adverse weather.

Even in windy conditions, this tent stands firm. Its ultra-low profile design minimises wind resistance, making it ideal for exposed campsites, protecting you from strong gusts and harsh weather.

For those warm summer trips, the built-in bug net keeps pesky insects at bay, ensuring bug-free bliss and proper ventilation for a sound sleep.

The inner tent is 245 cm long – 10cm shorter than the Blackthorn 1 XL Tent – but still provides ample space for solo campers to spread out during the night.
