The new, significantly lighter, 30d sil/sil Second Arrow tent is now available!

Nothing has been lost in this scaling-down of the acclaimed First Arrow design. The Second Arrow is a high-tech, compact, 3-person, double-skinned expedition tent for ultra-lightweight travel in snow, across the exposed country and in severe weather. It’s excellent flow-through ventilation also makes it perfect for summer and tropical use. It is also a perfect solution for solo travellers looking for a roomier tent with 4-season performance. This tent is now only available with our high-tech outer tent skin fabric: 30 denier, high-tenacity ripstop nylon with silicone elastomer face treatment. Taller users will appreciate the increase given to the height of the front pole arc.

Story of the Second Arrow X – Compact 3-Person Expedition Tent for Ultra-Lightweight Travel

The SECOND ARROW design follows the classic tapered-tunnel, 3-arch First Arrow model. None of the functional advantages or design details of the First Arrow have been lost in scaling down to the SECOND ARROW model. The design objective was to minimise weight without compromising the tent’s 3-person status.

The choice of high-tenacity, 30d Nylon 66 with 3000mm HH sil/sil coating gives the outer tent the best possible performance and durability, all at a reduced weight. Water repellency, snow shedding and UV resistance are all improved with this fabric. Contrary to what might be expected, this light-weight fabric option presents no compromise to the life expectancy of a properly cared for and maintained tent.

The SECOND ARROW inner tent has good shoulder width for two people and can now accommodate two 183cm people stretched out full length. We have increased the length and the width of the floor, greatly improving the internal volume and usable space. The vestibule on the Second Arrow has adequate room for storing footwear, miscellaneous equipment and cooking gear. We generally stow empty packs outside this tent, tied to skis or a tree in high winds.
