Dimensions : (centimetres)


Versions :

You can choose between three versions of this tent, UL, N et R. All three have the same dimensions, but use different fabrics and  zipper.

  • Pioulou UL is the ultralight version. The inner tent walls are made with mosquito netting. Due to the lightness of fabrics, this version needs to be treated carefully.
  • Pioulou N is the normal version, the best choice for most hikers and travellers. Fabrics are light yet strong, and inner tent walls are made with windbreak fabric + mosquito netting.
  • Pioulou R is the reinforced version, for long-distance trips and rough terrain. Fabrics have been chosen with emphasis on resistance and durability, inner tent walls are made with windbreak fabric + mosquito netting and zippers are stronger.

See Specifications tab for more informations.


Pegs : 155g

A set of 13 pegs is available : we chose high quality aluminium pegs made in the Netherlands :
  • 7 Rockpin pegs to anchor your tipi on the hardest grounds
  • 6 UL duraluminium pegs for guylines when the weather turns bad.



Central pole : 150g

Pioulou has been designed to be used with a trekking pole of 130cm in order to minimize weight.

If you do not use trekking poles, a light and strong pole is available.


Seam sealing :
Seams sealing is included by default, but you can also do it yourself with a silicone sealant : it reduces our manufacturing time and therefore the price.


Custom color :

Following colours are currently in stock :

  • Version UL : Grey
  • Version N : Grey
  • Version R : Olive green

If you wish an other colour, please tick the "custom colour" option.


Door with zipper :

This option changes the opening system for a YKK #5 zipper with 2 sliders. It will add +25g to the final weight.



Ground attachments by webbing + stainless rings : 55g

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

Pioulou is a 1 person shelter for hikers and travelers looking for a light, simple and comfortable tent. Designed for people up to 1m85 (6'1") , it allows to sleep, sit and easily change clothes inside the shelter. Its pyramidal form is great for shedding bad weather, and the vestibule is large enough to protect a good amount of gear.

One of the main feature of this tent is the absence of zipper on the rainfly doors : these close by superposition, and are easily opened by two buckles. The tent is therefore lighter, but also more durable as zippers are known to be a weak point on long-term use.

A version with zipper is also available.

Details:

  • Silpoly rainfly doesn't stretch when wet
  • Uses a single walking pole ( or the optional aluminium pole)
  • Offers 360° protection
  • 6 guylines ensure excellent wind resistance
  • No zipper, increased durability
  • Closure by superposition of two pieces of fabric + 2 adjustable buckles for easy access
  • Can be fully opened for warm nights
  • The door can be kept open without wetting inner in case rain
  • All seams are sealed
  • Rainfly pitches first
  • Rainfly and inner can be pitched independantly
