There is one mesh panel for added breathability and ventilation on the rear side door, this will help to alleviate the effects of condensation.

  • Airbeam structure for easy pitching
  • Sewn-in Groundsheet with drop down door (tent not fully 100% sealed due to drop down doorway)
  • Drop down doors allow easier access for wheelchairs, and less tripping hazard
  • King pole doors allow a canopy to be made (King poles sold separately)
  • Pre-angled tent beams add greater height and a stronger structure
  • Airspeed valve for quick inflation / deflation

Berth 8 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) 3000

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 Sentinel Active 70 Denier Fabric, Polyester, treated to 3000mm

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.
