Nothing brings people together like a shared adventure, days on the trail swapping stories, living the highs and the lows. Still, you don’t want anyone’s feet in your face when you’re tucked up in your sleeping bag – no matter how close you are!

Viso's three pole tunnel structure creates maximal living space and head room without the weight gain for a more comfortable backpacking adventure.

Pitching is simple – ideal after a hard day’s hiking. The triangualised configuration helps to spread the load along the poles, and guy ropes stabilise the tent against the wind. Viso is outer pitch first, but the outer and inner can also be pitched together and you can use the outer on its own as a bivvy shelter on faster, lighter adventures.

Suspended from the outer, the breathable polyester inner with mesh panelling and a mosquito net door provides a comfortable and airy interior living space, gives plenty of ventilation and keeps the bugs out.

A spacious porch with groundsheet provides ample storage space for your boots and rucksack, whilst stash pockets in the inner and hanging loops give you plenty of options for organising your gear, storing valuables and hanging up your torch.

Weekend in Dartmoor

Recently completed two days in Dartmoor with my girlfriend, needless to say that the Viso 2 was the only companion I needed for the trip.

Pros: Easy to put up, light weight, lot's of room.

Cons: I found the tarp for the porch area a little small, when securing the tarps elastic points to the tent there were some prominent stress lines in the fabric.

I would strongly recommend this tent for weekend warriors and their somewhat demanding girlfriends.

If Carlsberg did tents...

An incredible tent that far surpassed all of my needs.
I bikepacked around Wales for 750 miles in 16 days. It went up every night and down every morning. I carried everything I needed on my bike, and it all fitted inside the tent with room too spare. My bike, a hardtail MTB fitted perfectly in the porch and still I had room to egress for a late night wee!
The tub floor inner was water tight. I will say that I did get a fair bit of condensation build up in the inner with the big zipped vent closed. I thought it would be enough ventilation with the other end open but it wasn't. It was too chilly with fully open but halfway was spot on. I did have s lot of gear in there and some was probably wet or damp. I haven't knocked any points off for this as conditions vary and I may just be a sweaty Betty.
Incidentally, the putter, inner and porch footprint all fit inside the 13l seat pack! I carried the poles on my bars, on top of the rollbag.
I endured some very heavy downpours and I stayed dry. If the tent had to be put away wet, then the following evening it dried in no time.

Affordable Backpacking Magic

Great bit of kit, we chose this after looking at lots of tents under the 200quid mark that met our requirements. The best features are the substantial porch combined with the outer-first pitching; you can pitch in the rain and get out of the weather to change without destroying your sleeping space with wet and muddy clothes/boots. Weight is manageable and the build appears to be good. Very happy once again with Alpkit.

A Review of the Versatile Viso 2

This is a tent that you could comfortably live in for an extended period of days - it's more than just a minimalist, small-as-possible roof over your head for the night.
