The Nordisk Svalbard 1 PU is an updated version of the original SI tent. The PU coating adds a little weight but sees a significant reduction in price while maintaining the functional and spacious design. 

Nordisk says:

The Svalbard 1 PU is a handy, functional, spacious and extremely stable tent. It surpasses the magic 32.7m/s in the wind tunnel test which means that it can even withstand a hurricane. The construction also allows plenty of room for gear inside the sleeping compartment with some extra space for footwear and cooking in the small porch. The Svalbard 1 is easy to pitch and quick to pack down plus, as it is inner pitched first, it allows you to pitch the inner tent as a stand-alone in fine weather. The small pack size makes Svalbard the perfect trekking companion.

Nordisk's Svalbard 1 PU Tent is a tough and sturdy solo tent that's perfectly suited to backpacking expeditions. This version simply uses a PU coating to reduce the cost without too much of a weight penalty. It still has a cleverly thought out shape for the sleeping compartment that allows enough space for you and your kit, as well as a porch for extra storage and cooking. It's sit up height which is nice as not many lightweight one person tents are, which makes getting changed inside a little easier.

The Svalbard can endure winds of up to 40.0m/sec without breaking and has a hydrostatic head of 3000mm for the flysheet and 8000mm for the groundsheet. Its easy to pitch as it's pitched inner first with colour-coded alloy poles to thread through the sleeves. The outer is then clipped to the pegging points and ladder lock adjustment provided. The result is a very stable design.
