The t30 trail is a wider and slightly taller version of the t20 trail. Classified as a 3-person tent, it is still used most often as a 2-person tent where extra space is sought, be it for winter sleeping bags, extra kit or greater personal comfort. The t30 has a wide and high porch with generous head-room with and a spacious inner. At 2.75 kg, it is no lightweight, but nor does it compromise on durability or performance in bad weather.

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 need to separate them for drying out.

About 60% of the cost of a tent is fabric, and the greatest part of this is invested in the flysheet. The t30 trail is made from a 40-denier, silicon-coated (both sides), nylon rip-stop fabric, and gives what we believe to be the best balance between cost, durability and strength, with only a small weight penalty.

The t30 trail probably offers the most space for your pound, euro or dollar of all the Lightwave tents. It is also a tough, resilient design that is quick to pitch.
