Summary: Tough, reasonably light (2.5kg) 3-season tent. Feels spacious inside due to the vertical side walls and unusual (V shaped) pole configuration leading to a wide and long mid section of maximum height. I used it in very wet and windy conditions alongside a Macpac Minaret. It stood up to the rain and wind almost as well, and at half the price. Overall the layout has been thoughtfully designed, producing a surprisingly spacious interior and a tent you can feel confident in.

Summary: The Nautilus is a great "situation" tent. It's small and light enough to take on a full tramp/hike, but is also comfy enough to use as a base place on static holidays. The double doors and vestibles are great for storing gear and easy access. The swift pitch feature allows you to pitch with or without the fly, and being able to pitch in the rain and keep the inner dry makes being in the rain that little bit better. (As is the totally waterproof tub floor!
