For the adventurous couple on the move, the Spartan from Explore Planet Earth is a hiking and backpacking tent that manages to balance size with performance. This single room tent has a vestibule, and is compact enough to compress down to fit into a backpack.
The colour coded frame means set up is going to be easy as, and the UV 50+ fire retardant fly will protect you from the elements. With a 4000mm rating, this tent has some serious water protection for a tent of its category. The Doors have No-see-um mesh, so you will get plenty of ventilation inside your space,
The last thing you need is to roll over in the middle of the night and crush your glasses, have your PLB stick into your side, or lose track of your keys inside your tent. This tent comes with a gear loft you can keep all your essential off your sleeping area and safely above your head. The Spartan 2P is perfect for the solo hiker or couple on a budget.
Not a bad tent at all for trekking around. May not be as light as some, but great $$$ for the quality. Just making a custom footprint to put the fly up as a standalone...
Great feedback thanks, Mark, these tents seem to be a quiet achiever, and we reckon they are great quality for the price too. ~ Ben.
Dont know what to say here :)
The Spartan tents are very new to us, but from looking at the specs it seems this tent has a 4000mm waterhead rating for the fly and 5000mm rated floor plus the seams are sealed - so unless it's extreme weather you should be nice and dry inside this tent.
Hi, does this tent have an internal no-see-um mesh that is stand alone without the fly? I would be using it in a hot environment mostly and want something that is pretty much pure mesh on the top with a reliable fly. Obviously without spending a heap of money too.
The Explore Planet Earth Spartan 2 Tent has a solid inner with mesh doors which attaches to the poles/frame so it will stand on its own – but it’s not made entirely of mesh. If you have a watch of this video at 00:25 you can see the Spartan without its fly which will give you an idea of the inner.
There isn’t a 2 person hiking tent with an entirely mesh inner in that price range, but for a little bit extra you may want to consider the Zempire Atom Hiking tent. The Atom has a full mesh inner, and a quality fly with a water head rating of 5000mm, plus it is an extremely well-made tent so that's a model to keep in mind.
