  • What materials are used in Trekkertents?

3 Season tents -  flysheets use silicone coated 30 Denier high tenacity Ripstop Nylon 6.6 (silnylon) This material has very high tear strength and a hydrostatic head rating of 2000mm. Bathtub floors use either a 30 Denier silnylon, or a heavier 70 Denier silnylon with an HH rating of 5000mm is an option. Inner tents use a very light Noseeum mesh (midge proof).

4 season tents - double walled 4 season tents use a heavier 40 Denier high tenacity Ripstop Nylon 6.6 for the flysheets which is triple silicone coated both sides and has an HH rating of 3500mm. The single wall tents use a heavier PU coated ripstop nylon which does not stretch or sag when wet. Floors are constructed from a heavy duty PU coated ripstop nylon with a minimum HH rating of 5000mm. Inner tents use a ripstop nylon with a DWR coating.

Alloy tent poles are Easton Aluminium 7.9mm Nanolites. 11mm Easton Aluminiumpoles are used for the ridge poles of the Edge tents.

Dyneema guylines and line locs are used on all tents for guying out.



  • Do the tents come with pegs?

For lightweight shelters, choice of pegs is a very personal preference, dependent on hiking locations, expected weather and ground conditions. Pegs can vary in weight from 1 gram to over 20 grams for different uses and no one type of peg will suit all conditions. For these reasons pegs are not included with the tents.



  • Do the tents need seam sealed?

It is advisable for the silnylon tents to be seam sealed for use in UK conditions. This is an available option for each silnylon tent.



  • What do the stated weights of the shelters include?

The stated weights are for everything needed to pack and pitch the tents, excluding pegs (for reasons stated above) and hiking poles, where required. Stuff sacs, guylines, line locs and an allowance for seam sealing are included in these weights. Weights can vary slightly between fabric batches (generally no more than 30 grams per tent), so these weights are taken from an average over several fabric batches.
