  • Specifications
  • Instructions
  • Easy-Grip Zip-Pulls Our Easy-Grip Zip-Pulls have a handy finger loop. The rubber and cord zip pulls make less noise as the pulls don’t rattle in the wind.
  • 5000mm aqua rated The waterproofness of polyester is rated in mm which refers to water column height in millimetres. This fabric will withstand a 5000mm column of water for more than one minute before a single drop might appear through the fabric. The thicker the coating the longer the aqua rating lasts so Kiwi Camping double-coat our polyester, meaning our aqua rating is the minimum waterproofness, rather than the maximum.
  • Peg mallet included For your convenience, we’ve included a peg mallet with this tent! This is designed with a rubber head that won’t damage your pegs. We’ve got you covered!
  • 150 denier fabric We use a high density/high thread count (Denier) PU coated polyester fabric for the fly, which we have developed over many years. This fabric has superior tensile strength and is 8 times more durable than nylon. It doesn't stretch or sag when wet like nylon does and is a heavier quality than comparable fabrics.
  • UV protection For added safety and comfort the fabric has UPF 50+UV protection.
  • Hybrid frame A hybrid frame combines the flexibility of fibreglass with the strength of steel. It provides superior wind stability without compromising the height or volume inside the tent. This system holds the walls out more vertically and makes them easier to erect.
  • Tri-tensioners We use triangle-shaped guy rope tensioners rather than in-line tensioners to ensure the ropes do not slip.
  • Accessory pockets Accessory pockets provide handy storage for smaller items and valuables.
  • Lantern hanging points Conveniently located tabs to hang LED lanterns.
  • Power cord entry Power cord entry makes it easy to plug in appliances or charge your phone when on a powered tent site.
  • Blackout Coating A light-diffusing fly for longer sleep in's while camping!
