Duolight Hiking Tent — Two Person
Why we made this
A lightweight, three-season tent, the Duolight is perfect for hiking in the bush and in warmer climates — comfortably supporting two people and their gear.
Engineered for minimal weight, optimal space and weather protection in New Zealand conditions, the three-season Duolight balances comfort with practicality. Designed with a waterproof, factory seam sealed UV20™ PE fly and 40D nylon ripstop floor, this tent keeps you dry in the wet season and comfortable in warmer climates with internal mesh maximising airflow. The Multi-Pitch™ system offers ultimate versatility when it comes to uncertain weather conditions, allowing you to pitch the both the fly and inner independently of each other. This way, you can choose to reduce weight and fly camp in the summer months or take the full set up for extra warmth in the shoulder seasons. We're also pleased to supply DAC Featherlite® NSL™ poles with the Duolight tent — these poles are developed through DAC's 'green anodising' process which helps to minimise toxic chemicals in the production process, which is better for workers and the environment.

Is the tent freestanding without the use of pegs?
BEST ANSWER: Yes the Duolite tent is freestanding without pegs. We have used it on the deck of a hut and you can even pick it up fully erected and move it to a new location. We have had no issues with it and like the design
does this tent need a separate footprint?
BEST ANSWER: No. The floor fabric is thicker & more durable than most other tents. Obviously still clear site of sticks & rocks before erecting tent.
