2 Reviews of the Starlight 1

By: Rappo984  Reason: I own(ed) one  Made in: 2013   Rating:   Date: 17/04/2020

I am a wild camper and solo backpacker who wanted a tent which could handle all weathers and was strong enough to withstand all the rigours our hobby throws at it.

The Robens Starlight 1 tent does all that! I love this tent, I have owned it for a number of years now and it has been tested to the full in all weathers. It is exceptionally waterproof and withstands the wind very well, I love the ease of setup and the comfort it provides when erected.

The only downsides if any, are firstly the weight, it is a little heavy, but I match my kit to compensate. The weather protection alone is one of the main reasons for buying this excellent tent, so not that much of a worry to be honest.

The only other gripe I would say, is the size of the vestibule, which is a little small and can be tight if you want to cook and or store your pack, but not bad.

All in all a great 1 person backpacking tent, that really works hard when the weather is against you.

This is a really good quality backpacking tent with many outstanding features that you will not even find on more expensive tents such as low venting system & vents that can be fully adjusted from the inside, genius!

All in one, single pole erection & extremely waterproof and stable in strong wind, with a very low profile.

For a tiny tent there is a reasonable size porch to store your gear & pack.

I particularly like the cheerfully yellow interior, a real bonus when the weather is foul! The gear rope is useful for drying & hanging damp clothes.

The only thing I can mark it down on, & this is being ultra picky is the pack size could be slightly smaller & maybe the weight a little lighter. Still its not bad, & it is good to see Robens have concentrated on using very good quality materials, well thought out design & very good build quality, for which they have a great reputation for.

All in all a great tent for a really good price.

If your looking for a small lightweight backpacking tent that's waterproof & very stable in wind & very quick &easy to erect/pack this would be a great option.

PS you can just about sit up in this tent which is unusual for such a tiny tent. Well done Robens.

Manufacturer's Description

Solo trekkers and cyclists will appreciate the low weight and ease of use of the Starlight 1. It pitches easily, stands up to the elements and offers exceptional value for money. Four attached short alloy poles on the corners add to the space at head and feet, while the main external alloy pole maximizes useable living space and comfort. Ventilation is good, with low zipped vent panels at each end, adjustable from inside, as well as a rainproof vent at the apex of the tent and an insect proof mesh door which quickly covers with a zipped inner door for a cosy night.
