A superb single person backpacking tent, built for those who want lightweight performance with a touch of style.

Designed to be the perfect choice for the weight concious camper, the OEX Lynx EV I Backpacking Tent is ideal for expeditions, wild camping and cycling/kayak trips.

New for 2017, the eyelets on all of the OEX EV range of tents have been changed to a much improved Clasp method, which has now resolved a slight issue that was previously encountered in the original versions.

It's made from a tough, lightweight Nylon 30D / 270T fabric core which has been coated inside with PU (Polyurethane) to aid strength, waterproofing and seam sealing. On the outside there is a SI (Silicone) membrane which provides a flexible but highly water resistant coating that beads and repels water, whilst flexing in heavy windy conditions.

The Yunan T6 tent poles are used by many high end manufacturers and, with their Japanese grade Aluminium and bespoke Korean engineering, are made to perform in all conditions whilst maintaining their integrity over many years of use*.

A new guy line tensioning system utilises an Aluminium OEX ‘O’ Ring, which is an extremely lightweight but resilient component that lets you easily make adjustments, even when wearing gloves.

It comes with strong aluminium stake pegs that won't weigh you down and, due to the lightweight nature of the OEX EV series, everything packs down into just a single waterproof dry bag.

Eyelets problem

Are the improved eyelets available to those of us purchased the early tents? Other than that issue, which makes my tent unusable, it's not a bad attempt.

The tent is lightweight, waterproof, expensive and fragile. What could go wrong?

great weight for backpacking

I bought this tent as a replacement for a very old Vango, to be used on a cycle tour across Europe summer 2016. I was lucky enough to test it out in many different weather conditions in various countries. The pegs are a good design and easy to pull out the ground after use. The tent is very well vented but i did have some condensation on colder nights. The poles are strong and light and very easy to put together. where this tent fails though is the weak eyelets the poles sit into. 2 out 3 broke withing the first week. NOT impressed for the cost of the tent!
