    Hi to all. My wife has just picked up an old Ultimate tent, but we cannot work out which model it is.

    I wonder if any of you good people can help me.

    It is a 2 man tent, with 2 entrances, It is a ridge tent, and guessing it had a ridge pole too (not all pole bits are there).

    Its lay out is very much like the Mountain Equipment AR model, with a shallower slope on one side of the tent, and as such the ridge isnt in the middle of the floor plan, but, rather, to one side.

    It is similar in appearance to this:

    If youve got any ideas as to which model it is, would you drop me a line please? Cheers. G

    I seem to remember that Ultimate had a tent called the Horizon that sounds like the one you describe. That was back in the 1970s. The design was known as a transverse ridge and was quite popular at the time for two person tents. Another popular one was the Robert Saunders Base Camp.

    Robert Saunders still make the Base Camp/Space Camp, best part of £200 to buy. The Ultimate Horizon had a ridge pole, I'm not sure if the Base Camp/Space Camp did. Both very fine tents though, huge ground coverage for the weight.
