Why We Chose The Vaude Space Seamless 2-3P: Great ventilation, useful features, quality build
After 46 years of designing and developing tents, you could forgive a brand for sticking with their tried and tested tent designs and materials. But this is exactly the opposite of what German based tent manufacturer Vaude have done with their all new Space Seamless 2-3P – a tent with an innovative flysheet design that helps to keep the weight down to an impressive figure.
Who Is The Space Seamless 2-3P For?
The Space Seamless 2-3P is, as the name suggests, a two to three person tent that’s ideally suited towards backpacking, bikepacking, lower level mountaineering and any other activity where the weight of your pack needs to be as low as possible.
Once pitched, the tent offers enough space for three people, with a bathtub groundsheet that reaches up high enough to provide enough protection from even the most driving rain that could be sneaking under the fly.
There are two storage pockets either side of the inner and another two stretchy pockets are found at the roof, giving ample stash points. If you need to air out any smelly walking socks or worn out base layers then there’s a bit of cord stretching the length of the tent that’ll let you do so.
Once in the tent, ventilation has been addressed by extensive use of thin mesh for the entire midsection of the inner walls. A slightly heavier weight mesh has been used around the roof and lower walls (before you reach the raised groundsheet), giving decent airflow throughout the tent. Two rainproof vents have been built into the top of both entrances of the fly to further enable airflow.
