Looking back on a year with our locally made tent

Whether you’re here for a few days or a few years, camping is the best option to enjoy and experience the incredible array of diverse natural landscapes which Hong Kong has to offer.

Last year, Kaleigh and I were well-overdue in replacing our ten-year-old MSR tent. Saving for this month’s BIG trip, we decided to take a gamble in replacing it with a local, cheaper version.

After looking around the many stores, we found RC Outfitters’ unique brand of tents, the Triton, to be our best option.

Minus one small issue (which I’ll detail below) the Triton Ultra two plus has seen us well through all of Hong Kong’s wide-ranging seasons.

Bang for your buck

 1Weight: 1.8kg

Waterproofing level: 3000MM

Seasonal rating: 3 seasons

Floor size: 19x19x47cm

Access and utilities: 2 X access doors, 1 X usb light attic

Downside: Hong Kong has some hard ground to get your tent pegs into, and after a year of extreme use, all but a few are still hammer worthy. Not that this is a huge issue, as stronger replacements are available for 20-30HKD (5USD) at the store.

Snagging a bargain

RC Outfitters’ deluxe camping set for two, is a complete game changer in terms of comfort. Camping with our MSR in the past, we would rough it without mats or sleeping bags and with folded clothes as pillows.

This set comes complete with two compact blow-up mats and pillows, which is now a level of luxury I’m almost always happy sacrificing space for.

This is all you need to sleep comfortably out in Hong Kong’s designated campsites, with the addition of a blanket from home during those colder months (late December till early April).

All this available at the very reasonable price of $1899 HKD.
