Practical details:

  • Polyester fabric doesn't expand when exposed to moisture (depending on the fabric option)
  • Quick and easy pitching by one person.
  • Adjustable attachments for optimal pitch on any terrain.
  • Large awning to store equipment.
  • Large vent above the awning to evacuate moisture and efficiently manage condensation.
  • Quality zips (YKK # 5) + buckle holder

Peg attachment:

The peg attachments consist in a reinforcement and a strap loop. On this loop, several types of adjusters are available:

   
  • Normal : Adjustable 2mm polyester/dyneema cord with Lineloc :



  • Ultra-light attachment: 3 loops of 1.5mm cord. (-25g)



  • Winter attachment: stainless steel rings for adjustment and 15mm strap forming a large loop allowing to use skis or any type of snow anchor. (+ 60g)




Additional Options:

  • Without guylines: Attachments are present, but the adjustable guyline is not included. You use your own guylines: -28g
  • Seam sealing: done by default, if you check this option you will have to make it yourself with silnet. This reduces our working time and therefore the price.
  • Mix of 8 titanium pegs and 7 aluminum pegs to adapt to any type of ground. Independent bag included: + 125g
  • Adjustable aluminum pole: + 260g
