For such a generous living space, the Jack Wolfskin Exolight II weighs only 1986g. The extra space all comes from a very creative use of its pole system. This tent’s poles have been shock-corded together to form the external skeleton that the flysheet attaches to. The inner is attached already to the flysheet, or it can be added later in order to keep it dry while pitching out in the rain. The Exolight II’s pole system was designed to be able to withstand winds of up to 80 km/h. However, it is very quick to pitch as well.

Each side has a porch and both can take two rucksacks easily. The outer doors have been well-designed and feature three zip pulls that allow you to vent the top part of the door when necessary. There is tons of space in the inner tent as well, since there is high headroom through instead of tapering to the bottom. There is a lot of mesh in the inner and the flysheet does not go all the way to the ground. When it comes to keeping out wind, there are better designs. However, the Jack Wolfskin Exolight II is very stables and pitches outer-first, so those small details might not be serious drawbacks.

Final Verdict

The space and weight of the Jack Wolfskin Exolight II are outstanding for two people. However, in some conditions, having a flysheet that hugged the ground and a bit less mesh on the tent’s flywheel could be helpful.
