Robens Green Cone 4 Tipi Tent (2020)
The Robens Green Cone features exceptional versatility to make a brilliant, spacious 4 man tipi tent. This low-weight tent features heavyweight protection against rain (5000mm), but also deals with heat well, with good air circulation, due to the outer tent sitting off the floor. What really makes the tent eye-catching is the ability to remove the inner tent and adjust the central pole, to take the overall weight down to 2.1 kg, transforming it into an ideal bivvy tent. A superb addition to the Robens range, the Green Cone is bound to be a success with campers needing a lightweight, small-pack size but highly technical tent.

|Berth||4 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)||5000 |
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||Hydrotex HD 75D polyester 185T |
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.
