  • Instructions
  • Fold Out
  • Night pod inner ‘Night pod’ inner reduces light in the sleeping area to ensure a longer, more restful sleep, whatever the time of day.
  • 200 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.
  • Collapsible This product saves space by collapsing to a fraction of its size when not in use.
  • Mat Included A comfortable mat is included with this product!
  • 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.
  • 2000mm aqua rated This fabric will withstand a 2000mm (2 metre) solid column of water for more than 1 minute before a single drop might appear through the fabric. New Zealand’s highest 24-hour rainfall was 758mm - so we’ve got you covered! We also double-coat our waterproof PU coating for even better coverage and performance.
  • Aluminium poles Our Powerflex aluminium poles are the largest diameter pole possible, relative to the size of the tent. This ensures you get maximum strength at minimum weight. They are also coloured to match the coloured pole sleeves. These are teamed up with lightweight high-strength aluminium 'V' hiker pegs.
  • Storage pockets Handy storage to easily locate important items and to minimise clutter.
  • Lantern hanging points Conveniently located tabs to hang LED lanterns.
