The Goondie 1 is a practical, lightweight, one-person tent that doesn't sacrifice comfort for the sake of saving a few grams. There is plenty of room to sit upright to get changed, as well as storage for gear in both vestibules. This tent is suitable for three-season (15D) or four season (30D) use, and the freestanding construction and sturdy floor (no footprint required) make it easy to put up. The overhanging vestibules keep the inside dry even when the fly door is open, while the mid-size YKK zips are easy to reach. All this, and it weighs no more than an apple! Well no, not quispan>
The Goondie 1 is available with either a 30D Poly Fly (orange) or a lightweight 15D Nylon Fly (green) and with the choice of a summer (mesh) or winter (nylon) inner.
For super light weight options, consider adding the Goondie 1 footprint. This is an ultralight alternative to the tent inner.
|Extra Product Info|
The Goondie tent series has high-walled, bathtub floors made from hard-wearing, 100 denier PU-coated HT nylon – so tough that a footprint for under the tent is not needed. The vestibule can be rolled halfway up, creating fantastic flow-through ventilation even in the wet, bringing comfort in warmer conditions. When it’s cold outside, the full nylon inner adds insulation while the durable, water-repellent finish (DWR) prevents condensation dripping inside the tent. The Goondie is freestanding, needing a minimum of two pegs to hold the vestibules out. (Two ‘mega pegs’ are included, as well as four alloy pegs for the guy lines.) When not in use, the four storm guys tuck into handy little pockets built into the reinforcing tabs.
Floor: 100 denier, 5000 millimetre nylon with bathtub construction. High side walls to prevent splash back. Footprint not required.
Vestibules: generous overhanging vestibule protects storage area and inner tent even when fly door is open. Smaller vestibule accessible from inside tent only.
Freestanding: minimum of two pegs required for vestibules.
Poles: 9.1 millimetre Air Hercules Scandium pole with floating inserts. The floating inserts allow the force to equalise over the whole arch, making for a stronger, lighter and more stable pole system.
Pegs: six alloy pegs, including two heavy-duty 'mega pegs'.
Zips: YKK mid-size zips for dependability.
Guy points: four reinforced storm guys with built-in rope pockets.
Venting: tropical venting tabs allow the vestibule to be rolled halfway up for flow-through ventilation.
Stuff sack: sturdy 100-denier nylon that will last the life of the tent.
Dimensions of floor: 2300 x 800 millimetres
