In 2019 I bought the Lofoten 1 ULW tent for my solo adventures. Since then, I’ve used it for several +7 multiday hikes, I’ve used it in the mountains of Norway and Sweden, and I’ve used it in both hot and cold climates.
The Lofoten 1 ULW tent is genuinely remarkable. It packs to the size of a water bottle and weighs just 500g (1.1 pounds). If you’re looking to purchase the lightest tent on the market, this is the tent for you.
The Lofoten 1 ULW will pack down smaller than most tarps will while still having the benefits of a tent – being protected from the wind, rain, and snow.
You’ll sacrifice comfort for weight and packability.
The Lofoten 1 ULW is a tiny tent. I’m 6’2 (190 cm), and I can barely lie down inside without my head and feet touching the ends. The tent isn’t very tall either. If the air mattress you use is too tall, your feet will touch the ceiling. Furthermore, you cannot sit up straight inside the tent, which makes it a bit awkward to change clothes or blow up your air mattress.
When that’s said, sleeping in the tent is comfortable, and you’ll have plenty of indoor floor-area to store your stuff.
There is no inner tent in the Lofoten 1 ULW, so you’ll be unable to cook while being protected from the wind. There is, however a small tarp in the entrance you can lift.
There are several factors I look at when choosing a tent like the Lofoten 1 ULW for outdoor use. Especially if I’m going to use it for several days in the mountains. Here is what you should look for:
