The t30 hyper is a bigger, or more accurately, wider and slightly taller version of the t20 hyper. Classified as a 3-person tent, it is often chosen for 2 people not wishing to have the weight or over-sized footprint of an extended-porch model. At 2.30 kg, the t30 offers a large porch with generous head-room, and acres of space inside. Performance-wise, it acquits itself well in strong winds despite its larger profile.

Its multi-pitch system is very versatile – the integral mode allows it to be pitched in 3 minutes or less. The choice of flysheet-first or inner-first pitching is determined by whether you just want the flysheet or inner pitched on their own respectively, and either method is necessary if you have to separate them for drying out.

Tents are all about fabric, and the t30 hyper is no exception. The flysheet fabric – by far the most important part of a tent’s specification – is a 30-denier, silicon-coated (both sides), nylon rip-stop fabric. This yarn thickness undoubtedly gives the best balance of tear-resistance, longevity under UV-exposure and low weight in a fabric, and remains the favoured choice for our premium lightweight tents.

The t30 hyper offers most the space per kilo in the whole Lightwave range and this is often overlooked as people focus on weight alone, and not how much room they are getting for it.
