Made for the solo hiker, Goondie 1 breaks the lightweight mould by offering comfort and practicality without a massive weight penalty. There is room to sit up and read or get dressed, a single door for entry and a storage hatch for your stove or boots.
This Goondie 1 comes with winter (nylon) inner and 30D poly fly.
For super light weight options, consider adding the Goondie 1 footprint. This is an ultralight alternative to the tent inner.
There are two choices of flies for tents. Both options are finished with silicone and polyurethane coatings and fully seam sealed in the factory.
7D: spiffy green flies made from ultralight, 7-denier nylon with 1200mm of Sil/PU coating. Ideally suited to three-season bushwalking for the weight conscious.
30D: made from a slightly heavier and more durable 30-denier polyester. with at 1500mm Sil/PU waterhead, these gorgeous orange numbers are not only easier to spot, they have higher UV resistance, making them better suited to four-season use.
There are also two inner options for most tents.
Nylon: the full, breathable nylon inner has DWR treatment for better insulation and protection from condensation. Suitable for year-round use.
Mesh: this inner is made mostly from mesh, allowing fantastic breathability and air flow. It is perfect for warmer, more humid conditions. (It is also a bit lighter than the nylon alternative.)
Floors and Tub Footprints
The floor used in our tent range is tough enough to stand up to life in the bush without needing a footprint underneath. Made from 75-denier, 5000 millimetre, PU-coated HT nylon, the bathtub construction is watertight, with high side walls to prevent splash back.
The optional Tub footprint is made from the same 70D Polyester PU, designed to be used with the fly for a light-and-fast setup.
All our poles are supplied by DAC, the industry leader. DAC Featherlite NSL poles are light, strong and reliable, made using a new environmentally friendly anodising process.
Our forged alloy pegs are made using the same method as rockclimbing hardware – perhaps a little overengineered? Despite their strength, they’re easy to push in. We supply 10 although they are free standing and can be pitched with 2. What else do you want?
