Macpac Duolight Hiking Tent
Why we made this
Our lightest two-person tent, the Duolight is perfect for the weight-conscious hiker wanting a highly livable, three-season tent.
Engineered for minimal weight, optimal space and weather protection in New Zealand' conditions, the three-season Duolight is as good as it gets. The tent weighs in at just 2.17 kg and with two main poles and small ridge pole between the dual entrances, the Duolight tent maximises liveable volume. Our factory seam-sealed fly is constructed with UV20™ PE fabric, a quality material that strikes the balance between weight and performance. Coated with silicone on the outside to repel moisture and PE on the inside for waterproofness, UV20™ PE offers the weather protection you need during the summer. The Duolight utilises mesh extensively throughout the inner, allowing greater airflow for comfort in warmer climates. Two generous vestibules provide space for cooking and gear. We've incorporated the Multi-Pitch™ system, allowing you to pitch the fly independent of the inner so that the inner stays dry when packing up in wet conditions. The Duolight’s DAC Featherlite NSL™ poles are green anodised, minimising the use of toxic chemicals during the production process, while also providing strength and stability.

After having read all these reviews pre-purchase, I have to say I was a bit disappointed in the duolight. It is indeed light and spacious for a 2 person tent, and I really like the double entrances and vestibules. The issue I have is that the floor is not as water resistant as the other reviews suggest. We had no rain on our night out, but there was a heavy dew. The dew came through the floor of the tent and the underneaths of our sleeping mats were soaked. There was also a ton of condensation on the inside of the fly (even though we had slept with both of the vents open). Overall the experience was of waking up decidedly damp. Next time I will pitch it with a footprint, I think that will help.

Wet flor... Not good tent
Very desapointed with the tent. I bought a sleeping bag and a matress from them and Im happy with them, so i got the tent but this Doesnt seems to be the same quality. The flor of my tent is wet every morning. I put a litle mat under the tent and where the mat cover the inside is fine but all arround where is uncoverded is wet. So my bags are wet every morning and the matress too. For the price of the tent it should come with a custom mat insted the straps. The room of the tent is perfect and is nice the pitching sistem.
