Sigma S22 Tent

Colour: Wilderness Green
Wilderness Green

Sturdy and spacious two-person lightweight backpacking tent with twin porches

Compared to traditional double-skinned tents, single-wall tents are lighter, quicker and easier to pitch, and provide more internal space for the same footprint. So why are they still such a rarity in the world of ultralight backpacking and wild camping? The age-old problem is condensation – which is basically a dealbreaker, because nobody wants to wake up with water dripping on to their face. Lightwave’s Sigma range of single-skin tents solves that problem thanks to the use of a breathable but highly waterproof X-tex fabric. It results in a flysheet that always feels dry to the touch. The overall design is similarly optimised for lightweight backpacking, with a large porch for storage and easy access. Inside, generous headroom makes for comfortable living. The tents are also virtually free-standing and require minimal pegging, saving valuable time and effort when pitching up. The tents in the Sigma range are the most weatherproof all-season ultralight tents out there, anywhere.

    • Groundsheet - 75 g/m² 50d nylon taffeta, PU-coated with 5000 mm hydrostatic head

    • Poles - DAC 9.35 mm Featherlite (aluminium alloy)
    • X-tex fabric is heavier than most flysheets due to its coating, but the result is a hydrostatic head (i.e. waterproofness) that is far higher than the standard 3000-5000 mm found in nearly all tents.
    • The Sigma groundsheet is made from a durable 50-denier taffeta (plain weave). The 50-denier fabric is a reasonable balance between the need to save weight and provide adequate protection from abrasion and moisture.
    • Sigma tents use Lightning pegs – similar in weight to most standard pegs, but substantially stronger and capable of living with some serious abuse.
  • When New Zealander Carol McDermott first began designing outdoor gear, his main concern was creating lightweight, high-performing kit that would give him an edge in the mountains - you know, the kind of gear without bells and whistles that serious climbers and trekkers crave. So when he founded Lightwave, McDermott didn’t change a thing - and that’s why we love it.
