2 Reviews of the Voyager Superlite

Straight out of the bag you can tell the voyager is of great build quality and you wouldn't believe its a 2 man tent from the weight. It is a little snug for 2 but we only take it for if the weather is looking bad and it has always performed well ! Its so light Ive used it as a 1 man before its really spacious when used as a 1 person. Ive used this a few times now and im really impressed with what you get for your money if you search around, I managed to get mine for 220 online, ive set it up on really wet boggy ground and I was a little nervous about the super thin sheeting used on the bottom but it was still bone dry in the morning. Ive also used it in heavy snow which did gather on the top of the tent but a quick shove shed the weight and it didn't break, bend or allow any water in so it held strong there too!
Ive yet to see it in high winds above 30 but with its low swooping profile and from my experience so far im really happy with my purchase :-)

I bought my Superlite in December 2014 and I have used it for 12 nights now (over four trips - all backpacking). I had my doubts at first but the more I use this tent the more I like it. Inside there is plenty of room for one person and a manageable amount of room for two. The inner pitches first which makes the material taut and maximises space. Pitching in rain is a small issue, and with practise the tent goes up in a couple of minutes. Materials are light but strong. I've weathered torrential rain without any problems. My concern at the moment is heavy wind. I bought this tent exclusively because it was the lightest semi-geodesic design available. It is strong, but not infallible. To improve efficiency I have added a guy rope to the front hoop to stop it flipping backwards (never happened to me but a few report it as an issue) and shock-cord ties to fix the poles together where they intersect. The titanium pegs are next to useless - and you'll need to change them for something decent (MSR Mini Groundhogs). Two of the elastic pegging loops came apart on the last trip so the flysheet is presently with TN for repairs. I also recommend a footprint to protect the very thin groundsheet.

Updated for 2009 the already popular Superlite Voyager has now stepped out of the shadow of it's older sibling the classic Voyager to have a re-designed back end and roof - improving it's already impressive weather-shedding ability.
Fans of all things lightweight will also be pleased to hear that despite being longer and with a taller porch, the Superlite Voyager is now over 300g lighter than previous models and is one third lighter than the classic Voyager. The semi-geodesic design has proved itself time and again, and the new Superlite Voyager carries on that tradition for anybody travelling in all but the harshest conditions.
Note: Due to the nature of the silcon fabrics used in this tent, the seams are not factory sealed.
