Size and Living Space
Bedroom length 225 cm Room width 125 cm at the head and 105 cm at the feet. Room height 100 cm 2 aluminum stakes (composed of 2 sections each) located at the feet to increase the usable space. Two 60cm-deep side porches (storage space between the bedroom and flysheet) can each accommodate a backpack of about 50 to 70 liters, mountain equipment and a pair of hiking shoes. 2 pockets in bedroom.
Architecture, Tent poles and Tent pegs
To use this tarp tent, you need two hiking poles (ideal height 110cm; max 120 cm) for the supporting structure. The stakes, made of 7075 T6 aluminum, have a head shape (called “anvil”) which makes them very strong. They are non-anodized for a limited environmental impact. This architecture makes the tent very lightweight but it needs to be fixed to the ground because it is not free-standing.
Assembly Tips
Start by adjusting your poles to 110 cm in length. Then drive the tent pegs into the ground at the four corners of the tarp tent. Given that the flysheet and bedroom are pre-assembled, each of the poles must be slid under the flysheet, directly above each of the doors. That’s how you pitch your tarp tent! Then put the 2 aluminum stakes in the spaces provided at the foot of the tent. Now you just have to attach the guy lines and tighten them (the height of the poles can be adjusted).
Disassemble Tips
This job is very simple. All you have to do is remove the two poles used to support the tent. Then, once the guy lines are undone and the tent pegs removed from the ground, fold up the tent, including the width of the cover. Tip: Leave the two stakes in position to save time when you assemble it next time!
Forclaz tents are laboratory-tested: pitched tent, 200 L/m²/h (3 hours, equivalent to a tropical storm). The 20D polyester (PES) flysheet (2,000 mm rating) and 40D polyamide groundsheet (3,000 mm rating) have a polyurethane coating (inside) and silicone coating (outside). Seams taped with heat-sealed strips.
Wind Resistance
We test all our tents in a wind tunnel on a turntable where we can expose each side of the tent to the wind. To test its wind resistance, the tent must be properly pitched, taut but not stretched, with all the guy ropes in position around the tent. It should remain habitable at wind speeds of 60km/h, measured near ground level. Our tents are certified by the CSTB independent laboratory in Nantes.
Ventilation and Condensation Prevention
Top ventilation on each side near the doors. Upper part of the bedroom in mosquito net mesh to facilitate air flow. Water repellent fabric around the outside of the bedroom to protect against condensation and draughts. To reduce condensation inside your tent, it must be properly pitched, with the fabric kept taut without being over-stretched, and the air vents open.
3-season tent: your tent will protect you from the harsh weather conditions you can encounter in the spring, summer or autumn. It will withstand light snowfall but is not designed to withstand heavy loads that would weigh on the structure. In case of snow, remember to shake your tent regularly in order to bring down any snow that has accumulated to avoid putting too much weight on the structure of your tent.
