Robens Green Cone Tent - A great lighter weight alternative to a Fairbanks
HydroTex® HD RS fabric is made exclusively for Robens to address our uncompromising need for a light, strong, durable flysheet material. The tough 75-denier highdensity, PU-coated ripstop polyester has a 5,000mm hydrostatic head waterproof rating, UV-inhibitors and is fire retardant forsafety. This fabric will withstand years of heavy use, no matter how harsh the conditions.
The versatile four-person Green Cone tipi has great headroom and features an offset centre pole for easy access to the large porch and inner. This pole lifts the outer from the ground to create a gap to aid air flow. Small corner poles are sewn into the inner to create a wall that adds extra useable space. To save weight, remove the inner and adjust the telescopic centre pole so the outer sits close to the ground – the perfect bivvy tent. Weight without the inner is just 2.9 kg.
- Hydrostatic Head 5000 mm: Shows the amount of water on 1 cm² before the water penetrates the coating.
- Strong, flexible and durable tape is glued and heat-sealed over flysheet seams for effective long-term waterproofing in this critical area.
- Guy Line Retainers hold folded guylines securely when packing away to avoid the nightmare of tangles and knots later.
- The Robens Low Vent airflow system allows a healthy airflow through the tent for ventilation. It can be adjusted easily to reflect changing weather conditions.
- Storage pockets for inner doors mean they can be stashed away neatly to open up the space and avoid accidental damage.
- Toggle and ring fastening.
- Light, strong, reliable and durable.
- Mesh with mosquito net for ventilation and to keep insects out.
If I could rate this Robens tent higher than 5 stars I would, Its a real quality tent, well thought out and perfect for what I do when camping, its pretty easy to pitch as long as you take your time, each time I pitch it, it gets easier. only tiny gripe and it is a tiny one, is you don't get enough pegs if you want you use all the guy lines, but apart from that if perfect.
