The Robens Trapper Twin provides a comfortable vis-a-vis tent for four people, with off-set inner tents, each sleeping two people, either side of the tent. The frame of the tent is two A-Frame steel poles, with a fronte pole providing a stable front porch area for versatile living and storage space to the tent. A unique-look and designed tent, the Trapper Twin certainly stands out on the campsite, and essentially creates a double-tipi with a porch. Furthermore, the front mesh secondary door, acts as a deterrent to bugs on warmer days, allowing a good airflow throughout the tent. The porch area can also be turned into a wet area, by unzipping the groundsheet in the porch, adding greater flexibility to the camper.

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)||
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.

Hydrotex Polycotton Fabric (35% cotton / 65% 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.
