The Mini Peak proved to be a very poplar tent with solo hikers, however numerous people wanted the same style of shelter for two people and hence the Trail Peak was created.

Firstly the material used is PU Coated Nylon and sealed accordingly. However it is also supplied with a tube of seam sealant should it be required at any time.

When it first arrived I pitched one in the garden and left it out for 2 days in heavy rain. No leaks were found and so you might find sealing the seams may be a belt and braces approach.

Secondly, it is supplied WITH a pole, which is another saving of additional cost. However those hikers who use walking poles, are able to save 322gm weight by leaving this at home and use one of our linking systems instead, to provide a solid reliable support.

There are 2 entrances into the shelter and each vestibule is big enough for boots and few items. Due to the pitch of the shelter the entrance is mostly covered and not too exposed to falling rain saving your sleeping gear from a shower.

The internal space is a good 2m x 2.4m and I found being a taller person at 6'2" there was plenty of space for two people and all their gear. Even on the deeper sleeping mats the inner was some distance away from my face.

The floor has a central hole with a gutter and draw cord which allows the pole to be placed against the earth (rather than against the material for the inner floor) and then sealed by pulling the cord.

The inner and outer shelter can be pitched independently of each other depending on demands. However it should be noted that it would be awkward and not very practical to pitch the outer first and then try to insert the inner due to the single pole needed to be removed in the process.

Conclusion so far, is that it is a much roomier 2 person version of the original Mini Peak. Something which many customers were seeking and I can see this being popular with Backpackers and Bushcrafters alike. For two people taking just over a kilo each you have a great spacious tent for most activities and offering maximum ventilation.

Luxe Trail Peak
Monday, 3 November 2014  | 

At 2.5Kg you get a 2.4m by 2m sleeping area thatís 1.6m high: luxury for one person, spacious for two, and could sleep three at a pinch. Iím 6í3" and have no problem with my head or feet touching the inner when sleeping. Thereís plenty of room inside to get changed or have four people sat playing cards, and itís handy having a door at either side so you don't have to climb across someone when getting in our out.

Iíve used pyramid tents before which were lighter than the Trail Peak as they were made of SilNylon, but they stretch and sag in the wet and need repeated re-tensioning, and Iíll gladly carry the extra weight to avoid that. I've used the Trail Peak in the rain and it stays taut without the two layers touching, and I had no problems with condensation.

For bikepacking the two-man inner can be swapped out for the Sil-Minipeak one-man inner (not sure if itís available separately) and it's big enough to store your bike inside as well as yourself. This keeps your bike safe, saves 622g over the stock inner, and means you donít have to carry a rain cover or a heavy lock. You have to climb across the bike to get out, though, as the Minipeak one-man inner doesnít have the second door that the Trail Peak inner has.

Iím not a fan of the central pole hole in the inner - itís a little more faffing around when setting up and it leaves a tiny gap that ants/etc could crawl in through. Also youíll sometimes want to move the pole to the side anyway depending on sleeping configuration. I sealed up the hole and use a small plastic dish under the pole to protect the groundsheet. The pole provided is the adjustable-walking-stick style that clicks securely in to each position - far better than the slip-ring poles that collapse in the damp.

Overall itís a well designed, versatile, big, tough tent that's quick to set up and take down. My current favourite tent.
