Last week we posted the first half of our interview with Lightwave and Crux founder Carol McDermott. In the first half, Carol talks about product design in the outdoor industry, why he set up his own outdoor gear companies and his criteria for designing products. This post picks up from where we left off.

Last season saw the release of your Trail range of tents, which saw a big change in design in going from inner pitching to simultaneous pitching; your Hyper range released this year has stayed with simultaneous pitching. What was the reasoning behind this change? Are true inner pitch tents a thing of the past?

Here at CheapTents.com, we truly love lightweight tents that can take a bit of battering from the weather people face in the UK and beyond.  It’s why we have become so fond of the build-quality of the Lightwave range of tents.  We think they are certainly amongst the best tents available and don’t use the words ‘best tents’ lightly!
