3 Reviews of the Duolite

I bought a Duolite in 2012 to replace my broken Roadrunner II. This tent is quite unique because you put the poles up as a frame over the outer and clip the outer on to the poles. It's an ideal system for bad weather because you can toss all your stuff under the outer to keep it dry while you put the tent up. I'm impressed with the weather resistance of the Duolite. I've used mine in gale force winds and it stayed stable. There is enough room for two at a push if you don't have much gear. It's heavy and very bulky when packed, making it poor for backpacking, and there are insufficient points securing the inner to the outer so the inner tends to sag and restrict space. You can leave the front door partly open to improve ventilation and reduce condensation.

I have used the duolite 2 man tent now on more than one occasion in several weather conditions, it is a very good backpacking tent with a small porch area, it is light weight.
My only criticism is that the porch area does not have a ground sheet.
The tent has good ventilation in hot weather, is water tight in bad weather, but does suffer from condensation.
Taking all into consideration it is a very good tent for the backpacker, and I would recommend it for any trip.
I use it as a Duke Of Edinburgh instructor and have seen many different makes and models of tent, and so far have not found a tent to match this one. It has some very nice little additives that make it very good, like the internal pockets for storage, and the reflective guy lines and tape around the doors that make it stand out at night from a distance.

I own the Duolight tourer, bought for cycling the coast to coast where we need a lightweight but reasonably sized tent. We have used/tested it 2 times now and it is a great tent. It is the easiest tent to set up and take down, packs away well and easily goes back in its bag like its supposed to do. It feels really well made and has little things that make it so good to use, for example the doors roll back and instead of little fiddly ties it has small clips that easily clip and unclip.
It has been used in torrential downpours with no leaks, and it doesn't seem to suffer with condensation thanks to its good venting system. Its meant to be able to accommodate a bike within the porch but I just cant see that being easily done. However, the large porch does give you loads of room for all of your gear to be stored, whilst still having a decent sized area you can sit in - very handy in the rain. I would recommend this tent to anyone who wants a tent they plan to keep and use lots. Although relatively expensive it is good value for money in that it is both lightweight but not so small you cant use it comfortably in bad weather. It also feels so well made that it will last you for many years - unlike some cheaper tents we looked at before buying this one.

The Wild Country Duolite provides an ideal backpacking tent for two people, with a max weight of only 1.2kg per person! The unique pole design means that the inner sits well back from the porch to provide greater protection from wet weather, making this tent more suitable for 3-4 season backpacking use.
Lightweight DAC poles and a semi-geodesic structure add to stability whilst meticulous design of the inner has led to as much functional space as possible being created.
You can also "upgrade" to a Duolite Tourer with the purchase of a Duolite Tourer Flysheet.
