The tents is made from ripstop polyester with Dermizax™. A breathing single wall avoids condensation build up yielding a dry indoor climate. Achieved water-column pressure is 20,000 mm. A mesh fabric is laminated to the inside of the Dermizax™ membrane. This make the tents especially suited for winter use because moisture (e.g. your breath) will freeze to the mesh and not fall as snow. When the stove is lit and generates heat, the white frost will evaporate through the Dermizax™ layer leaving a dry inside. It is designed for mountaineering and expedition use. * Single wall tent in Dermizax™ * Ventilation openings high and low at both ends * Entrances at both ends with a storage room at one end * Velcro flap in floor for placing the stove directly on the ground, helps avoid interior spillage * Storm flaps and large stake loops * Exterior stay channels with individual tensioners * Compression storage bag in superlight fabric Persons: 3 - 4 Men Sleeping area: WxLxH 220 x 235 x 110 cm / (87 x 93 x 43”) Sleeping area: 4,5 m² (49 sq. ft.)
