The ultra-light incarnation of THE definitive mountain tent.

This legendary design, seen in some of the most remote and extreme locations on the planet, uses DAC Featherlite poles, as used on adventure racing tents where weight is critical, but in a geodesic framework which braces the poles against each other to shake off extremes of weather from any angle. Inner-first pitching means the flysheet lashes the whole of the tent down and presents a sleek, wind-shedding profile.

While the outer is still unmistakably Quasar, the inner has been given an overhaul for improved ventilation, reduced weight and a light, airy feel. The guyline system has also been improved, for even faster and more secure anchoring.

World-class backpacking accommodation with a minimum weight well below 3 kilos, the Ultra Quasar is a stellar four season mountain shelter.

You won't need another..
Reviewed By Alexander, 07 Apr 2014

I purchased this tent from the Windsor store after advice given to me by a fellow D of E leader.
I was after a "Do it all" tent, which nearly turned out to be impossible. My criteria were: #1 not over 4kg
#2 expedition grade tent,
#4 spacious inside,
#5 Shedding high wind without flapping
#6 Strong and stable !

The ultra Quasar ticks all the boxes. I've used it on an exposed site in the Peak district since I purchased it, with winds up to 50mph in the night recorded by the campsite.
The "dads" in the family tents clearly were awake all night re-pegging and hammering pegs owing to the vacant red eyed look the next morning. - I slept through the entire thing.
Even waking up in the morning I could hear some wind noise, but not till I opened the door did i realize how strong the winds were, causing most people to retreat to the car, and quite some snapped poles. - To say this is a strong and well built tent doesn't quite do it justice.

The only criticism I can make was that there were a few dog-ends from the sewing process in one of the vestibules.

Yes it is expensive, yes it takes a little bit longer to pitch, but oh my it is worth it !

 

 

 
false economy to buy cheaper
Reviewed By Peter, 25 Sep 2013

Used this tent in the southern alps for 6 months in New Zealand, and 2 months in the Pyrenees in mixed conditions. a world respected tent keeping me safe and dry. when lesser tents are torn to shreds. worth the money.

 

 

 
Still going strong
Reviewed By Chris, 18 May 2013

There's a good reason the quasar tent is still going strong and has been around for as long as I can remember.
Every geodesic tent I have seen seems to be a copy of this tent and not as good. Each part of the tent seems very well thought out making this tent a home from home where ever I go with it.
It has been on many expedition since I got it 6 years ago been wild camping in Norway, canoe expedition in Canada, strong gales in Scotland and still looks new with no signs of wear and tear.
The pegs are best I have ever used never bent how much abuse I give them. Always go into the ground.
This tent may be expensive but I look at as an investment. Most people I know have been through at least three tents in the time I have had mine and needed more than one tent.

This tent works well as a base camp tent and light enough for expeditions good in all camping situations I can't fault it in any way.

 

 

 
Terra Nova Ultra Quasar
Reviewed By John, 02 Nov 2011

Used the Quasar as a base tent in the Alps for 2 weeks during some pretty severe weather this Summer. Absolutely no worries about stability in high winds or waterproofing despite being on the fringe of an area of flooding. Although sole occupant, plenty of room for plethora of ice and rock kit, food etc in the 2 eaves and the internal net pockets are a useful touch. Looking forward to putting it in my pack for a walking tour at Easter.

 

 

 
Practically indestructable!
Reviewed By M, 15 May 2011

I've had one of these for nearly 10 years now and it lives up to its incredible reputation. Mine has been up numerous mountains in dry, wet, hot and very cold weather and it always provides an outstanding level of protection from the elements. It has even been blown off the side of a mountain in the Highlands and survived a 1000ft fall with practically no damage. I even packed it back up and went back up the mountain where it looked after me for a further 3 days without a problem. And if you're wondering how it came to lift off from a mountain, that was entirely my fault for trying to pitch it solo in a gale. This is quite honestly the best piece of kit I have ever owned!
