An incredibly spacious tent, we consider the t30 trail xt as more of a base-camp style of tent than a backpacking one, although, when shared across three people at 1.1 kg each, it is still perfectly portable. Like all the trail models, the t30 xt is a robust, durable and reliable shelter for whenever the barometer drops and a welcome sanctuary from the storm.

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 xt 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 size of the t30 trail xt means it is mostly used for camping over longer durations where its spaciousness and durability become key factors.
