The Pathfinder is designed and built to cope with camping in a wide range of environments in seriously challenging conditions. A solid tent that is durable and practical to use wherever you decide to go.

Wechsel says:

The Pathfinder has become one of our classic tents and is an integral part of the Wechsel collection of tents. It is unparalleled in both design and function, and the stability of this one-man tent is without comparison! One does not have to give up comfort, as the extra long inner tent is a spatial wonder. The self-supporting tent construction, which also includes the vestibule, is of great importance, especially when the ground is too hard for tent pegs. The Pathfinder is thus a universal and reliable tent for adventures from the deserts to the Alps.

The fabrics of the Unlimited Line are processed with high stitch density. All tents of the line have YKK zippers specially developed for tents as well as closable ventilation flaps, which can also be operated from the inside. The storage package contains a compression pack and reflective guy lines with guy line pockets and strong tent pegs.

Wechsel Unlimited Line |Unlimited Line - Are you searching for a tent to take on expeditions through snow and ice or across deserts? Do you have to pay considerable attention to the quality and stability of the fabric? Do you value excellent craftsmanship, functional details and high standards of comfort? Then look no further than the tents in our Unlimited Line. All the tents in this series are suitable for use on expeditions and under extreme weather conditions.

Wechsel's Pathfinder 1 Person Tent is a solid solo tent that will be able to cope almost anywhere. The use of three poles, all crossing over at three points, creates a strong and stable frame with a low sleek profile that can certainly withstand 4 season conditions. This pole design also means that the tent is totally freestanding, including the vestibule which is great for when you don't know what the ground is going to be like. The use of thicker, heavier fabrics give you confidence that the tent will keep performing through the wind and rain whilst also providing durability to keep it going for years. This does add some serious weight compared to other modern solo 4 season/expedition tents but you might be happy with the trade off for durability and performance.

The inner first pitching needs practice for you to do it quickly in poor weather but little features such as the colour coded poles to sleeves and clips to attach the outer makes things easier. The shape of the tent is perfect for standing up to some of the worst weather conditions you are likely to encounter but it does mean that there isn't a great amount of height for sitting inside the tent if you are trapped by the weather for an extended period. The vestibule is big enough to store your pack in easily enough and the door opens in a way that makes getting in and out easy.

Wechsel Pathfinder

This is an incredibly stable little tent. I bought it as one up from a bivvy bag. Its low profile and geodesic design make it the most stable tent I have ever come across in high winds. Its main disadvantage is the low height which takes a little getting used to and the fairly small vestibule. However the inner is quite roomy and quite long. If you can accept these limitations it is a brilliant little tent. It's not that light but as a result you do gain stability and robustness. There is no need for a footprint with this tent. Definitely a niche tent. 9/10
