Features

The Naturehike Mongar 2 is a two-man three-season tent. It’s made using 20D nylon and is silicone coated. It’s a dome shaped tent and is freestanding so it can be put up without the use of pegs. You also have the option of erecting it with just the mesh inner and leaving the fly cover off for hot nights. It’s a well packed tent and also comes with a foot print.

You can also purchase an additional vestibule extension, which looks ideal for those who camp on long term motorcycle trips.

What’s good?

This two-man lightweight tent cost £165 from Amazon, so we’re already talking a budget price tent. It has been called an ‘MSR Hubba Hubba rip-off’ by YouTube reviewers. But after personally testing it, all I can say is it’s a damn good tent.

The quality is very good. Trail weight is 2kg with poles, mat and pegs. It has a nice feel to the flysheet and the zips move freely. I opted for the tent in blue colour, which has a lighter weight 15d ripstop flysheet too. So overall the weight is pretty good. And the small pack size in a waterproof sack is a plus too.

It’s an ideal tent for summer motorcycle campers as the inner has a lot of mesh for ventilation and the fly sheet does not fully reach the ground.

I would consider this tent for a long-haul tour in warm climates as the inner is free standing with the poles forming an outer skeletal frame.

This tent can be pitched outer or inner first so you could just use the fly for a quick shelter as the poles peg into the mat provided, and then just attach the inner and outer to it. And the entire tent can be setup in under 10 minutes and is easy enough for a solo rider.

Round up

I used a Quechua Fresh large camping tarp with the tent to give added shelter from the rain. Although the tent did get wet, no water penetrated the fly and I couldn’t see any condensation so I’m happy with its waterproofing capabilities.

If you’re looking at an MSR, then definitely give this a look as well – especially considering the price difference.
