Why We Chose The Nordisk Telemark 2.2 LW: Very light and packable, excellent materials, an improved design
Those familiar with Nordisk’s popular Telemark 2 LW tent model will know that despite the 2 in its name, it’s not really been that much of a realistic option for comfortable two-person camping.
It should therefore be good news to many that Nordisk have now released a new adapted version of it, one that’s much, much more accommodating for that second person.
Who Is The Nordisk Telemark 2.2 For?
Despite being made for two people, at just 1010g, the Nordisk Telemark 2.2 LW, like the previous model, will still really appeal to any solo hikers. It offers bucket loads of space and all at a very light weight that’s almost as good as they get for a solo hiker.
For two people? Well, split in half that leaves each person with a meagre weight to carry and, now, a tolerable space to live and sleep in. That’s thanks to the addition of an extra door on this new model.
Lightweight backpackers and bikepackers are definitely the target market here. We can certainly see this coming in handy for any fast packers, orienteers or adventure racers as well.
Materials And Construction
We already mentioned that extra door. Well that’s pretty much the only big change that we can really see here. But it makes a massive difference in terms of two-person liveability. They haven’t added a second medium-sized porch however – just a space to stash a pair of walking boots.
