Voyager is only BARELY a 4-season tent
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
The Voyager is a decently constructed tent, however it is not strictly speaking a 4 season tent. In others, the tenant has the option of closing all vents and sealing themselves from the elements. In Voyager, there is a large gaping (mesh-covered) open back end. No option to zip a section of nylon to cover this exists in the tent. I'll make the modification myself, but I spent a very cold night the first time I used this tent in snow at 10,000 feet in NM two days ago (Nov. 28).
15years and still going.......
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've had a Terra Nova Voyager for 15years and used it camping everywhere from the West Australian Desert to the high alpine in Canada during. In all that time I've never once gotten wet! Early on (14years ago) the tent developed a tear in the inner, just beneath the hoop over the door. Terra Nova repaired it no questions asked and i've never had a stitch of bother since. The tent is getting a little tired now with the flysheet seam tapes drying up and cracking. Hopefully I can get it repaired for another 15years of happy camping!
haven from the mosquitoes...
high class Mongolian living
Mongolian fieldwork with the TN Voyager
a storm coming in...
Terra Nova may be slightly obscure but..
Out of the box weight in sack (total): 4 lbs 9 oz (even lighter than listed!!!) Just the tent without poles or pegs: 3 lbs; Pegs: 7-9oz; Poles 1 lb
This tent comes with sturdy aluminum pegs which is different from Terra Nova's lightweight titanium "toothpick" skewers which I have heard mixed reviews about, but that could cut even more weight if needed.
Setup took me about 10-15 minutes the first time and was very quick afterwards, the poles are seem sturdy and are sleeved and color-coded so there is little confusion. The cross brace design is a little tight when clipping into the corners which is my only qualm, but is probably better that it is tight anyway. Summer use the tent vents pretty well with the door and foot vent, so it stays pretty cool. With the fly on I haven't slept over night in hot weather yet so I will keep you posted as to how it turns out...
Cons: It is slightly tight for 2 (which I tried with my girlfriend so it wasn't all bad ;) so it is great as a solo tent and is freestanding so it is easy to move if needed. The headroom is a little low, so sitting up is about all you can get...
Foot room isn't that amazing (I am 6'1'') and with sleeping bag I am touching the foot vent which is a little annoying. So the listed length of 206 cm (81 inches) may be a little off.The vestibule could be a bit bigger and is good for one person but 2 would be a squeeze.
UPDATE: So after using this tent for 2 months straight in Mongolia it is safe to say that it lives up to the price. Great tent in high winds because of low profile stability and rain...what rain? Withstood drizzles and downpours with no problem. Using it in the summer was no problem either. It has a handy vent to prevent condensation...even though I occasionally got some on damp mornings, it was only on the vestibule inner fly (no big deal). If you are in it and it starts to get hot in the morning Get Out! This thing will cook you. That said it is a 4 season tent, but is pretty versatile
