Details

The Force 10 Erebus 3+ allows usage in more rugged, mountainous locations. The appeal of this tent focuses on both the ease of use and the extremely light but tough construction. With just two poles in a tunnel design, the Erebus 3+ can be pitched in as little as seven minutes, with the flysheet and inner pitching as one. A remarkable 3.03kg weight (2.70kg trail weight) is achieved through 20D ripstop siliconised nylon fabric, which is highly waterproof. Furthermore, the ultra lightweight Yunan Eco Alloy Poles reduce the weight of the tent further, representing an impressive combination of strength and low weight. The Erebus 3+ features extra living space compared to other models in the collection, as it has a larger front porch area for storage and living space. The Erebus 3+ is the perfect companion in remote, rugged locations.

  • Eco alloy poles - high quality poles made with acid-free processing.

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.
