Why we made this
A lightweight, three-season tent, the Duolight is perfect for hiking in the bush and in warmer climates — comfortably supporting two people and their gear.
  • Product Description
    Engineered for minimal weight, optimal space and weather protection in New Zealand conditions, the three-season Duolight balances comfort with practicality. Designed with a waterproof, factory seam sealed UV20™ PE fly and 40D nylon ripstop floor, this tent keeps you dry in the wet season and comfortable in warmer climates with internal mesh maximising airflow. The Multi-Pitch™ system offers ultimate versatility when it comes to uncertain weather conditions, allowing you to pitch the both the fly and inner independently of each other. This way, you can choose to reduce weight and fly camp in the summer months or take the full set up for extra warmth in the shoulder seasons. We're also pleased to supply DAC Featherlite NSL™ poles with the Duolight tent — these poles are developed through DAC's 'green anodising' process which helps to minimise toxic chemicals in the production process, which is better for workers and the environment.

Great tent for hiking
I have had this tent for nearly a year now and have had no problems with it. When I first got it, it took me a while to work out how to use the multi-pitch design however after pitching a few times at home a mate and I took it up into the Kaweka ranges for a weekend. It rained all night However tent stayed bone dry all night and even with two of us very little condensation formed on the roof with the vents open.

As for the size of the tent, it is larger than any other 2 person tent I have seen on the market while still packing down to a compact size. I find that when it’s packed I can Comfortably carry it on my own in my sleeping bag compartment alongside my summer sleeping bag.

Overall it is a great tent and the build quality is excellent. The one complaint I have about the tent is that not all of the poles are attached however I believe they have fixed this in the latest model of the tent

We have had this tent for over a year now for its weight it is very spacious we can fit two people and both packs inside the tent with room to spare.
We took this on a week long rafting trip with not Issues or breakages preforms will in windy conditions.
However, it is a light weight tramping tent and therefore has light weight plastic clips that I worry about losing

Light, roomy, Fiddly
Very Light and Roomy, but decided to return because the pole connections were fiddly and to easy to lose a specialised connector. The tent is not a real 'multi pitch'.

Love it. Great tent. Held up in lovely in -8C. Have used in 45C.
Good for double tent or going solo

Ultra light, ultra spacious - but will it last?
The good: it’s lightweight, spacious, easy to assemble and the double pitch option is amazing!
The bad: it feels cheaply made and I’m not sure if it will last. Nearly all components seem very flimsy. Especially the points of attachment of the tent poles / fly seem not fit for purpose: they’re plastic press-until-it-clicks connectors, which are bound to wear out / break. Only time will tell though!

Is this tent free standing? Or does it need to be pegged on all points to stand strong? Just thinking for setting it up on rocks/loose ground etc?

The Minaret will need to be pegged down to stand strong, but the Duolight can be free standing due to having the dome shape.

Can you pitch the inner and outer simultaneously keeping the inner dry when it is raining?
SMatt on May 9, 2020
The Multi-Pitch™ system offers ultimate versatility, allowing you to pitch the both the fly and inner independently of each other. You can view pitch methods here:
