On my recent trips to Babuyan Islands and Mindanao I tried out the NatureHike Cycling Ultralight Silicone One Man Tent that my good friend Koi Grey gave me. So far, I like it: it is light enough (1300g) to satisfy my self-contained system, and it is also quite easy to setup with a single-structure frame made of aluminum poles. What’s more, it comes with a footprint that likewise packs seamlessly and matches the size of the tent perfectly.
It was able to withstand the evening dew and light rains during the three nights I used it over the past month. Tents, however, must pass the test of time and I have yet to experience rough conditions with it so I’ll try to come up with a more comprehensive review in the future. Meanwhile, I’ll be happy to stick with it for my hikes for the rest of this season.
