2 persons - from 1105 to 1425g
The Aston XL is a bigger version of the Aston double wall tent. It can comfortably protect two tall persons (up to 2m00) from bad weather with the innertent, and three to four persons without it.
The Aston tipi has 8 anchor points to the ground, as well as 10 guylines points, for good 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.

Due to slight differences in fabric coating, announced weights may vary around +/-5% : More information about the different fabrics.
Ultralight fabric : -120g
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.
Seam sealing :
You can do it yourself with a silicone sealant : it reduces our manufacturing time and therefore the price.

This option changes the linelocs fasteners for adjustable loops of webbing. The adjustment is very easy, ultra-durable and gives large versatility on snow or other difficult terrains.

Ultralight ground fabric -200g
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.
