A excellent 2 person backpacking tent, built for those who want lightweight performance with a touch of style.

Designed to be the perfect choice for weight concious campers, the OEX Lynx EV II 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.

A week in the Highlands

Had this tent for 2 years, used on Dartmoor and Highlands Scotland. Brilliant tent for two, light, roomy, easy to pitch, good ventilation and small pack size well recommended. Well done OEX

We have 60 of these tents for our DofE groups at silver and gold level and they are incredible. Never have any breakages since the eyelet upgrade and groups love the lightweight and quick pitching. Being siliconised the flysheet doesnt need a hydrostatic head rating but these have handles all sorts of hard hitting rain and have never failed.

Addressing a Known Problem

It has been stated that "With regards to the specific issue you have had with the eyelets; all the OEX EV range have now been changed to a much improved Clasp method, this has now resolved any issues previously encountered."

Will Go Outdoors be offering a replacement service to those who purchased a tent with dodgy eyelets before the known problem was rectified?

Tent pegs and eyelets

Tent pegs are great until the ends break off and then you can't use them. Soft ground is fine,nice touch with the strings to pull them out, but any hard ground is a real issue. Very disappointed that one eyelet completely broke after only a couple of uses and we are out for 6 weeks across Europe - the webbing ribbon needs to be twice as wide as there is no structure to support the eyelet.
On the plus side, the ring adjustment for the guy ropes is really good and in general tent construction is very easy and quick - although if this was to be done in the rain you have to do the inside first so will get wet!
Ventilation is good and adjustable, you can fit a double inflatable bed inside (approx 127 cm wide) so can be comfy! Make sure you secure the fly sheet to the cross pole with the ties prior to pegging out, and the pole end at the door would benefit from a locator. Poles are really good and cleverly permanently fixed together with a swivel, very waterproof fly sheet, and the groundsheet upturn walls are nice and deep so no low level draughts, nice large front opening and a good height for sitting, and a good sized porch area with a positive zip, nice strong loop at the top for lamp hanging and a good sized interior pocket, very sociable tent, plenty of room for two big people i,e 6'2" 21 stone (Doris won't divulge but where ever I sit in our house, I'm sitting next to her !! ) packs down very small and light, we will be returning it due to the eyelet problem but if they sort that out its a great lightweight good sized two man tent for the warmer climes.

Eyelets broke - returned

I've had to return this tent as 2 out of 3 of the eyelets broke after 6 nights of use. A couple of the pegs bent too. It's a shame as it's a really lightweight tent which packs away small fitting into my bike panniers. Will be buying a more well known brand of tent next time.

Colour coded

Not only is this a wonderful colour but it is very light and very small when packed.
