Terra Nova Laser Compact 1 Tent (2022)

Taking inspiration from the multi-award-winning Laser Competition 1, the Laser Compact 1 is a more compact version of the tent, with a pack size of just 30cm long.

Laser Compact 1

The Laser Compact 1 is designed for backpackers, travellers and cyclists looking for tried and tested kit. When the Laser design was released in 2004 it sparked a remarkable trend for lightweight tent development and the Laser design became the de-facto standard for lightweight tents. With a good balance of durability and very low weight, this tent is suitable for medium-duration backpacking trips, perfect for spring to autumn weather conditions.

  • New for SS22 – now with factory silicone sealed main seam.
  • New for SS22 – now supplied with Terra Firma Mini Pegs.
  • The compact pack size of only 30cm allows for optimal positioning within your backpack.
  • We’ve included a handy webbing loop at the bottom of the flysheet door to accommodate a trekking pole, enabling you to create a useful canopy.
  • With 20 denier flysheet fabric, the flysheet and inner come attached, so the tent can be pitched quickly and easily as one.
  • Best suited to ground conditions where pegging out is a possibility, the low-profile design ensures a stable structure along.
  • Included are Dyneema reflective guylines that are three times stronger than standard guyropes, adding extra support.
  • Two vents, one at each end of the tent to help with ventilation.
  • FastPack option – use with the flysheet and groundsheet protector for an even lighter shelter.
  • Although it is a 1-person tent for overnight stays it could also be used as snug accommodation for 2.
