In Review: OEX Phoxx 1 v2 Tent

Updated: Jan 14

Keen to start taking on longer trails, we needed to kit ourselves out with a lightweight and fairly weather proof tent. Based on price, and our very mediocre knowledge on these things, we went for the OEX Phoxx 1 v2.

First Impressions

Before heading out up the hills, we gave them a test run in the garden; they went up no trouble, and the poles have an extremely satisfying clickety clack, almost self-assembly, way about them. Super easy to put up, in the garden at least, and also just as important, packed down into their small bag with ease. The whole thing weighs in at 1.5kg, and with some gentle persuading, fit into my 35L backpack horizontally no problem.
