One Planet Goondie 1-15D Ultra light Hiking Tent
The Goondie 1-15D is a practical, lightweight, one-person tent that doesn't sacrifice comfort for the sake of saving a few grams. There is plenty of room to sit upright to get changed, as well as storage for gear in both vestibules. This tent is suitable for three-season use, and the freestanding construction and sturdy floor (no footprint required) make it easy to put up. The overhanging vestibules keep the inside dry even when the fly door is open, while the mid-size YKK zips are easy to reach. All this, and it weighs no more than an apple! Well no, not quite...
The Goondie tent series has high-walled, bathtub floors made from hard-wearing, 100 denier PU-coated HT nylon – so tough that a footprint for under the tent is not needed. The vestibule can be rolled halfway up, creating fantastic flow-through ventilation even in the wet, bringing comfort in warmer conditions. When it’s cold outside, the full nylon inner adds insulation while the durable, water-repellent finish (DWR) prevents condensation dripping inside the tent. The Goondie is freestanding, needing a minimum of two pegs to hold the vestibules out. (Two ‘mega pegs’ are included, as well as four alloy pegs for the guy lines.) When not in use, the four storm guys tuck into handy little pockets built into the reinforcing tabs.
The Goondie 1-15D fly is made from ultralight, 15-denier nylon, ideally suited for three-season bushwalking for the weight conscious. It is finished with silicone and polyurethane coatings (sil/PU)and is fully factory seam-sealed. (Please note: nylon has more elasticity than polyester, saving weight but making it more susceptible to UV rays.)
Fly: 15 denier ultralight nylon with silicone/PU coating suitable for three-season bushwalking. Colour: green. Fully factory seam-sealed Guy-rope pockets built into the reinforcing.
Inner: full breathable nylon inner with DWR treatment for better insulation and protection from condensation drops.
Floor: 100 denier, 5000 millimetre nylon with bathtub construction. High side walls to prevent splash back. Footprint not required.
Vestibules: generous overhanging vestibule protects storage area and inner tent even when fly door is open. Smaller vestibule accessible from inside tent only.
