Probably the best value entry level tent on the market for hikers and backpackers, the Companion Pro Hiker 1 has all the features and benefits of a high end hiking tent only at a portion of the price.
Don’t let the low price tag put you off though, the Pro Hiker 1 is well constructed, functional and provides superior weather protection for one adult. Two entrances and vestibules provide easy access through mesh doors, while adequate ventilated is provided through two vents in the rain fly.
Also featuring numerous interior organiser pockets, a gear loft and a compression storage bag the Companion Pro Hiker 1 is the perfect tent for occasional trekkers, backpackers or motorcycle tourers.
Pretty lightweight, trekked 90km with it in Tassie. Poles and pegs are nice lightweight and durable aluminium. Lots of room for one inside including a pack. Far better than a Kmart tent and more comfortable than a bivvy. Only drawback is that this is a 3 season tent, wind can get up under the outer shell and make for a chilly night. If you're not hiking in snow or high winds this is a very comfortable tent.
Been out with this a few times now and its worked well each time.
The only drawback for is the amount of pegs you use for a full setup. So you'll need a half decent spot to pitch the tent.
The double doors work great and plenty of room for the bag to sit out of the elements.
Had mine now for 5 years and its been a great tent, a fraction low in height if you are sitting up inside , (I'm 5'11"), and one pole has just broke, i do use it a lot on our motorcycle trips, around 10 - 15 nights per year...thumbs up on this tent.
Fantastic photo Paul, thanks for sharing!
Is the length inside this tent suitable for a person at 6'5"?
I've just had a look at the Companion Pro Hiker 1 Tent we've got set up on our shop floor. I reckon you'll have no issue sleeping in this tent. The only small concerns I did have were that if you had super broad shoulders, then it might reduce the length available to you for sleeping because the tent does taper off a little towards the head end. Also, you most likely won't be able to sit up in this tent too easily but if you're only using it for sleep then it won't be an issue.
