Designed on the basis of the Pioulou tent, the Caroux is a very light single-wall tent for one person. Ideal for summer and mid-season, it will provide perfect protection from the rain in moderate winds.

It can be pitched high, offering a large sleeping space. Ventilation is ensured by a 5cm strip of mosquito netting around the entire perimeter of the tent. It is set up with one pole or hiking pole inside the tent, passing through a reinforcement.

In case of very bad weather (high wind), it is possible to pitch it very low to the ground. In this configuration wind resistance is high, but inside space is very reduced and the sleeper will touch the rainfly with head and feet : low pitch is not meant to be used on a regular basis.


Details:

  • Durable fabrics (30D silpoly for rainfly + 70D nylon PU for ground)
  • Seams are factory sealed
  • With a high pitch, a 200cm sleeper is still far from the walls !
  • Closure by superposition of two pieces of fabric + adjustable buckles for easy access
  • Zipper option available
  • Can be fully opened for warm nights
  • The door can be kept open without wetting the sleeping area in case of rain
  • Low pitch possible for very bad weather (very reduced space !)

Since october 2023, the zip is 5cm higher to avoid any contact with the ground.

Rainfly options

Ultralight fabric : -80g
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.
