Get the Laser Compact 1 Tent with the Footprint included in this great bundle deal. 

Footprints can help extend the tents life, providing increased protection against sharp objects.

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.

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.

  • Now with factory silicone sealed main seam.
  • Updated for 2023 with a PFC-free breathable inner tent
  • 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.
  • Supplied with Terra Firma Mini Pegs.

    David Burned his tent

    This 5 star reviewers to counteract David's four star review. He took a star off because he burned a hole in his tent with his own stove and then marked it down for not being robust enough.

    Tiny pack size! great for bikepacking

    A small pack size is far more important to me than weight but the two typically go together. This tent fulfills the pack size 100%. Overall it measures 30cm including the poles so gives me many carrying options on the bike. It is light but came with the minimum number of pegs, possibly as a weight saving measure?, and not enough guys for all the tie-out points.
    Its a single-hoop tunnel-style tent, and I have had poor results before with cheaper tunnel tents, mostly pitching difficulty and condensation. I’ve only used to one night so far but no problem pitching. Slight dampness in the morning, I had forgotten to open the vent flaps at the ends of the tent. Next time I’ll also unzip the top few cm of the of the door to let more warm wet air out.
    The tent is perfectly sized for me as a 159cm person. For a small tent I think it has generous storage space in the porch and under the fly at the ends.
    I don’t care for the way the tent inner attaches to the fly, which is mostly by way of small elastic loops and toggles. I think they are fiddly and frustrating, and there are lots of them. This means that the inner is reasonably well suspended under the fly, but if removing the inner tent to pack separately from the fly you should leave a little extra time for re-assembly.
    The door has a toggle to tie it open which is barely adequate. I packed a couple of clothespegs to do the job which works well but ruins the look.
    The storage bag doesn’t waste any space or weight on extra material so its a bit of a squeeze to get the tent back inside through the end opening.
    No repair kit came with this tent. Possibly another weight saving measure?
    This is supposed to be a small, light, highly packable tent and as such some compromises will be made in the features list. Overall, I think that it will do the job nicely.

    Great service

    Terra Nova Laser

    Just had my first outing using the laser. It's certainly light and packs up very small. It easily dealt with light winds and rain. A quick shake while packing got rid of most of the moisture.
    It's roomy for me, the porch is a reasonable size. It is not a tent for two (which is suggested).
    The biggest problem was me. I failed to appreciate how easily it was to damage the materials. (The edge of my stove caught the inner creating a small hole.) I realise the lightness of the tent means there are comprises, however I can't give it 5 stars because the materials are not robust.

    Good service

    Great price fast and efficient service
