Here is my review of the Naturehike VIK 1 tent. We’re now kitted out with summer backpacking tents ready to go backpacking and wild camping in the UK. This Naturehike vik 1 person tent costs £94 and weighs approx 1.3kg. It’s a single skin wild camping tent perfect for hot and dry weather.
A single wall one person tent is much nicer in summer as they allow more air to vent through the tent. They also have more mesh too meaning air travels freely through.
This particular version has the snow skirt meaning this naturehike tent can be used outside of summer too. The snow skirt stops chilly air coming entering the tent from the bottom.
You can make this an ultralight tent by leaving the ground sheet at home. To be honest, you can probably get away with doing this in summer if the forecast is good.
This is another tent from Camperlists who specialise is 3F UL Gear and Naturehike. Really cheap prices and they deliver in approx 7 days.
