Ideal for those requiring a traditional style tipi that still has the Robens technical features. The Robens Fairbanks has protective eaves, which extend out at the front of the tent, creating a large porch area. There is a single front door with an arched shaped two-way zip. The Fairbanks can sleep up to four people, and has a fully sewn in groundsheet, and mesh vents to ensure the creepy crawlies cannot access the sleeping area.

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) No
Details

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.

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.
