1 person - from 600 to 1355g


Pioulou is a 1 person shelter for hikers and travelers looking for a light, simple and comfortable tent. Designed for people up to 1m85 (6'1") , it allows to sleep, sit and easily change clothes inside the shelter. Its pyramidal form is great for shedding bad weather, and the vestibule is large enough to protect a good amount of gear.

One of the main feature of this tent is the absence of zipper on the doors : these close by superposition, and are easily opened by two buckles. The tent is therefore lighter, but also more durable as zipper are known to be a weak point on long-term use.


  • Silpoly rainfly doesn't stretch when wet
  • Uses a single walking pole ( or the optional aluminium pole)
  • Offers 360° protection
  • 6 guylines ensure excellent wind resistance
  • No zipper, increased durability
  • Closure by superposition of two pieces of fabric + 2 adjustable buckles for easy access
  • Can be fully opened for warm nights
  • The door can be kept open without wetting inner in case rain
  • All seams are sealed
  • Rainfly pitches first
  • Rainfly and inner can be pitched independantly
