2 persons - from 870 to 1095g 

                                           

The Aston is a double wall tent conceived to protect two person from bad weather while keeping weight to a minimum. It accommodates two people with the innertent, and three people without it. For people taller than 1m85 (6'1"), it is recommended to use the bigger model Aston XL.

The Aston tipi has 8 anchor points to the ground, as well as 7 guylines points, for excellent wind resistance. Unlike most tipis, the central pole is shifted forward, outside of the inner tent. This allows for a pleasant living space between sleepers.

Rainfly options

Ultralight fabric : -95g
Changes the standard fabric (silpoly 30D) for an ultralight fabric with high resistance/weight ratio (silnylon 20D sil/sil 2.500mm). Wind and weather resistance remains similar. In wet weather, the silnylon may stretch slightly. This remains insensitive if the rainfly was well tensed from the start. If necessary, increasing the height of the pole by a few cm allows the rainfly to be tightened. Durable, but will require a little more care than 30D silpoly.

Reinforced : +120g

Fasteners, buckles and webbing are changed for 15mm version (standard 10mm). Zipper YKK #8 (very strong). For the innertent, standard 15D mosquito netting is changed for 30D mosquito netting.

Storage bag fabric changed for 70D PU.


Options for the innertent Mosquito netting only: -15g

Changes the windproof yellow fabric for mosquito netting. Recommended for use in warm countries.


Ultralight ground fabric -115g

Changes the ground fabric (Nylon 70D PU 10.000mm) for ultralight silpoly 20D PU 4000mm fabric. It saves weight, but you will need to be gentle and/or use it with an extra groundsheet.


Accessories

Stakes : 180g

A set of 15 stakes is available : we chose high quality aluminium stakes made in the Netherlands :
  • 8 Rockpin stakes to anchor your tipi on the hardest grounds
  • 7 UL duraluminium stakes for guylines when the weather turns bad.

Extension tube : 38g

The required length of the central pole is 155cm. We advise to use both of your trekking poles strapped together with the included webbing. This solution is the lightest and very resistant : instuctions here (pdf).

If you use a single trekking pole, you can use the tube extension : this aluminium tube allows you to gain about 25cm of height on your trekking pole.


Mostert central pole : 330g

If you do not use trekking poles, an ultra-strong aluminium  mostert pole is available. Folded length: 45cm

Carbon central pole : 150g

An ultra-light and strong carbon pole is also available. Folded length: 37cm


2 separate carrying bags : +15g

This option allows you to get 2 separate bags instead of a single one:  one for the rainfly and one for the innertent.
