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.

Flysheet FabricHydrotex Polycotton - mix of 65% cotton and 35% polyester

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.

Fabric DenierPolycotton (35% Cotton / 65% Polyester)

Denier - a measurement used to determine the thickness of the tent flysheet. It relates to the fibre thickness, or thread counts used. The thicker the fabric, generally the stronger, and more durable the fabric will be. The denier really reflects the lifetime to be expected of the tent, and how quickly, it will be affected by UV Degradation.
