Peg attachment:

The peg attachments consist in a reinforcement and a strap loop. On this loop, several types of adjusters are available:
  • Normal : 2mm cord adjustable with Lineloc3 (+13g).

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

Additional Options:

  • Without guylines: Attachments are present, but the adjustable guyline is not included. You use your own guylines: -12g
  • We seal seams after manufacturing. However, you can choose to make it yourself (you will need a silicone sealant, like silnet). This reduces our working time and therefore the price.
  • Set of 10 titanium pegs : +65g
  • Aluminium pole : +202g
  • Inner tent : Please contact us
