Manufacturer's Description

The g1 ion is a lightweight two-person, three-pole semi-geodesic tent that is ideal for camping and travels around the world. Having a high-cut fly and large mesh panels on the inner, it is optimised for warmer climates. (You might find it cool in more wintry conditions). Although the flysheet is sufficiently water-resistant for four-season use, its high-cut baseline means the inner is more vulnerable to splashing in hard rainfall. The g1 ion is very light and easy to pitch, but being the smallest two-person tent in the Lightwave range, some people may prefer the larger g2 ion. It nevertheless retains a generous porch area and excellent headroom.
