40 denier polyester (PE) flysheet, coated polyurethane (inside) and silicone (outside), 75D PE groundsheet.
Seams taped with thermo-bonded tape.
Breathable and water repellent 40D PE inner tent with a mosquito net section that prevents contact with drops of condensation.
We test all our tents in a wind tunnel on a turntable to expose each side of the tent to the wind.
To guarantee its resistance to the wind, the tent must be well mounted, taut but not excessively so, with all the guy ropes properly deployed around the tent. As such, it will remain habitable with a wind speed measured at 70 km/h near the ground.
Ventilation and limitation of condensation
Room with mosquito net sections for ventilation and parts in water repellent fabric to protect against condensation and drafts. There is good ventilation at the front of the tent and ventilation at the feet.
To limit condensation inside the tent, it must be correctly assembled, canvas taut, but not excessively so. The use of ventilation and good air circulation limits the humidity inside.
Whole tent made of 20% recycled materials, reducing its environmental impact.
Flysheet made of 50% recycled materials.
The bedroom is made in a "self-dyed" component that reduces the amount of water used.
The hoops are coloured using an innovative anodising process which eliminates the use of nitric and phosphoric acids.

3 month review. Tent has been used and tested in lake district and Scotland highlands multiple times now. Used in heavy rain and hottest days. This is a fantastic tent for 2 people, not so much room but enough to have a good rest. Waterproofing work's well, had pitched this tent on a very wet areas and never had water coming into tent either. Super easy to pitch - max 10mins 1 person. Downsides - poor instructions, took extra time to pitch first time (this might be just me), built low so unable to sit inside (my height 6ft), storage area only on 1 side only so 2 hikers has to share same space. Also some of the poles got bent after first use, it stayed this way for 4 months now, doesn't affect tents performance just harder to push into each other. In anyway 5 stars, highly recommend.
Perfect tent for one! (scout promise!)
Used for More than 2 years
I am a scout leader and have used this tent over and over again... Perfect bagged size and pitched size for one (i am rather big).
I usually put my bag and stuff inside the chamber, imstead of a second bed, and leave my boots under the porch.
Not much headroom (given the size and weight) but good enough when sitting down, no problem here for me...
I love all the features such as the unique pole attached to the tent, reflective cord (great with kids running around), ventilation and nets, etc
Super easy to set up. Outer pitch first, i leave the chamber attached. Pitch in a couple of minutes, a few pegs in the ground, put the pole in, adjust cords, and done!
On fixed camp (not hiking) i sometime add a tarp (decathlon again) on top of the open side as the side opening door can leave you exposed to rain when open.
A great tent, my go to for many years... Highly recommended, this tent should be recommended for scout and DoE.
Used for More than 2 years
I have had this tent for over 7 year and it has been amazing, for trip to Kenya, China, Wild Camping in the Uk. I was away last weekend with this tent in really high winds and out of our party 3 tents broke all MSR Tents and this little thing was still standing strong. I have just had to buy some new elastic for the pole which is to be expected considering the use and how long I have had it.
