The Terra Nova Super Quasar is an exceptionally strong expedition tent designed to withstand the harshest mountain conditions. The unique pole geometry creates greater internal space and a sleek profile, shedding wind and snow with ease.
Terra Nova says:
3 people can sleep in the Super Quasar and the pole geometry prevents the inner sagging and creates an extremely aerodynamic profile, which sheds wind and snow with ease. Two porches allow gear to be stored out of the way and still allow easy access. Excellent durability, waterproofing and UV resistance are provided by the Watershed Endurance and Waterbloc fabrics.
Used extensively as both a basecamp tent and mobile expedition tents, you can be confident the Super Quasar will withstand the harshest mountain conditions.
Terra Nova's Super Quasar is a fabulous tent, the Quasar design was one of those that registered Terra Nova as a leading lightweight tent manufacturer back in the day. It achieved this because of the classic geodesic pole arrangement that provides strength and stability second to none. Unlike the other Quasar tents, the poles of the Super Quasar tent crosses at the side for added durability.
It's quick and easy to pitch, with colour coded poles that allow you to set up camp with the minimum of fuss. Add to the above, a flysheet that's cut close to the ground, good inner tent separation and two entrances/porches and you have a very practical tent as well as a strong one. A great choice for base camps and exposed pitches.
