The Wild Country Duolite provides an ideal backpacking tent for two people, with a max weight of only 1.2kg per person! The unique pole design means that the inner sits well back from the porch to provide greater protection from wet weather, making this tent more suitable for 3-4 season backpacking use.

Lightweight DAC poles and a semi-geodesic structure add to stability whilst meticulous design of the inner has led to as much functional space as possible being created. This is an incredibly easy tent to erect and perfect for first time campers. The fly sheet first design means you can set up in the rain without getting the inner tent wet.

At Outdoorhire we favour the Exped Synmat 7 Pump insulated sleeping mat which offers warmth, comfort, low weight and compact packed size.

We have used these mats on trips to Kilimanjaro, Toubkal and Greenland and found them to be easy to use and pack, but more importantly really comfortable, helping to get a good nights sleep, an important factor when your at altitude.

Here is a short video from EXPED which shows you how to inflate and deflate the mats using their built in pump and also how to pack them away.
