F10 Xenon UL 2+ Tent (2018)
The Force Ten Xenon UL 2+ tent provides a little extra space whilst retaining its core function as a high performance, extremely lightweight and compact tent. The tent is easy to pitch and put away, alongside small details to increase functionality. This is a fantastic tent for trips where light carry weight is essential.
The F10 Xenon UL 2 Tent adds extra living space and headroom to the F10 Alpine LT range of extremely lightweight, compact tents. Gothic Arch Poles see the headroom raised to 105cm, with a porch area for storage and living space. Yunan alloy poles, a micromesh inner and siliconised nylon flysheet ensure this added space does not severely impact the weight and space the tent takes up. Importantly, the tent is stable and weatherproof, with tough materials and a stable structure.

|Berth||2 Man |
Berth – This shows the number of people that the tent can sleep within the inner tents of a model of tent, in line with the industry standard. Normal procedure is to look for a slightly larger tent, for example, a family of four usually purchase a five or six berth tent, to give added room and comfort.
|Hydrostatic Head (mm)||3000 |
Hydrostatic Head (Tents) – a waterproof rating for technical fabrics measured in mm. The higher the rating the more waterproof the fabric is. A rating of 1500mm is deemed waterproof, but on a tent, look for a rating of 3000 or higher. Measured by the height of water column a fabric weave can take before it begins to “sweat”. “Polycotton” tents will not have a Hydrostatic Head level, as they are not treated for waterproofing.
|Flysheet Fabric||Protex 15D Siliconised & PU Coated Nylon 3000mm |
Polyester – a synthetic fibre, made from polymer units to create a textile fabric. Polyester is the most popular fabric for tent manufacturing, as it is durable, reliable and lighter in weight. Polyester does not breathe though, which creates more condensation.
Polycotton - a blend of polyester and cotton, primarily cotton (usually around 65% cotton / 35% polyester split). Polycotton is a more natural fabric for camping, as it is breathable, far more durable material, reducing the effects of condensation. Offers greater versatility in hot and cold climates.
Ripstop Nylon – a durable material used in tents which is strong and repairable due to its Ripstop properties.
|Groundsheet Fabric||70D lightweight polyester 6000mm|
|Inner Fabric||Water-resistant micro-mesh/breathable polyester|
|Fire Retardant||No |
Fire Retardant – all modern tent fabrics are fire-retardant under EN5912 European Safety Laws. Caution with fire must always be used, as flame retardant fabrics, will still catch fire given the right circumstances.
|Pack Size (cm)||46 x 16|
Double Skin Tent – A tent with an inner bedroom and a flysheet, most family tents are designed as a “Double Skin tent”, as it makes the tent more comfortable, and lessens the effects of condensation.
