Wild Country by Terra Nova Helm Compact 1 Person Backpacking Tent


The Helm Compact 1 is a well proportioned, free-standing dome tent designed for the outdoor enthusiast looking for a lightweight tent that packs down to a compact pack size.

The Helm Compact 1 is a remarkably spacious 1 person tent that packs down to just 30cm x 17cm. The 3 season, 1 person tent is lightweight and compact that is easy to pitch and simple to pack away, making it perfect for backpacking trips and youth expeditions.

  • A good choice for medium-duration backpacking trips where more space may be needed.

  • The inner has plenty of headroom and there’s a good-sized porch for kit storage.

  • There’s extra storage space under the rear flysheet which can be accessed from a small door in the inner.

  • The dome design provides more stability than a single-pole tent.

  • Quick and easy to erect, the flysheet and inner pitch together.

  • Great ventilation with a mesh panel on the inner door, plus a smaller mesh door with a cover at the rear of the inner.

  • Easy access to the rear porch is accessible through the small door on the inner.

  • Comes with a side-opening, tarp-style tent bag which makes it easier to pack away when it’s time to move on.

  • A good choice for backpackers and campers looking for a roomy 1 person tent.

We recommend using a footprint that sits under the groundsheet and porch area to help prolong the life of your tent.
