Spacious 3 season tent with decent sized vestibules for your stuff, Jaran strikes a great balance between weight, durability and space. 

If you are on an uber-light exploration or a prolonged escapade, you will be deliberating your need for lightweight with a need for versatility and durability.  Wherever you go and however you travel - by bike, boat or boots- guaranteeing a soporific night’s sleep is somewhat challenging, but we wouldn’t have it any other way! 

A diligently designed tent will certainly increase your chances of getting plenty of sleep. The colour-coded webbing on Jaran 2 assists you in setting up quickly without too much fumbling in the dark.

Balancing the benefits of weight versus stability and durability can be a tricky task. Jaran strikes a wonderful balance of total weight remaining below 2 kg yet stability and space is increased by use of a horizontal cross bar.

Jaran 2 utilises a thicker fabric than Ordos which gives it increased durability- ideal for longer trips where it is harder to ensure optimum pitching conditions. On adventurous journeys, you can never perfectly predict the weather. The geometry of Jaran 2 increases its stability in windy conditions and the bathtub floor protects from soggy pitches. Incorporated mesh sections give great ventilation whilst keeping bugs at bay.

Jaran 2 benefits from having two sizable vestibules (126 cm x 72 cm) which after a week or two of tent life, you will be undoubtedly grateful for. In such confined conditions, every inch of space is a blessing for storing mucky boots and hoards of kit- or even just to get a little breathing space from your companion! Having two entrances saves having to climb (or be climbed over) every time you or you companion want to exit/ enter the tent.

Trail Magazine - Test of the Best - Jaran 2

Trail test the best 2 person backpacking tents out on the hill, scoring highly for 2 porches and an unrivalled amount of space. Graham prefers outer pitch first tents, which shows throughout the test - with this being the only negative along with a little too much ventilation, but can you ever have too much ventilation in a tent???

Once again Alpkit has shredded the rulebook regarding good value, as the design, spec and performance outweigh the price tag. 5/5
