The two person Kite is part of the new Scandinavia Range from Robens. Designed with the serious backpacker in mind. the range features a variety of extremely high quality, lightweight tents all capable of withstanding extreme conditions. All Robens tents are rigorously tested in extreme wind and rain and designed meticulously to ensure optimum performance and style.
The fast pitching design and small, light pack size will appeal to adventurers, trekkers, kayakers and cyclists.
The Kite features a precision manufactured alloy DAC main pole and two lower end hoops to increase the usable head and foot space in the tent whilst maintaining the Kite's wind resistance and stability. A large cowl-protected mesh vent at each end can be adjusted from inside the tent to control air flow.
The attention to detail continues outside the tent with the cleverly designed guyline cleats and lightweight fully adjustable pegging points with ally buckle adjustment on the corners and double cord friction adjustment for the other guylines. These features ensure quick and easy pitching even in challenging conditions.
A large inner door allows easy access and the entrance vestibule provides useful storage space separate from the main living space.
The flysheet is made from Hydrotex SP fabric which is 30D polyester, treated on both sides with silicone and boasts an impressive Hydrostatic Head of 3000mm. Just have a look at the video of Hydrotex SP fabric being pitched against Nylon in Robens testing area during a vigorous rain test to see for yourself the benefits of this fabric.
