Edge uses 2 alloy tent poles in combination with 2 hiking poles. A short ridge pole is attached to the tent and can be left in place when packing the tent away. In strong winds, the 2 front corners should be pegged out first.



1 - Slacken off the front pole sleeve straps and insert the 2 alloy tent poles (insert the lower pole first) into the pole sleeves at one end and push the other end into the pole pockets at the ridge pole . Tighten the front pole sleeve straps by pulling the flysheet down and the straps up on the ladder buckle

2 - Insert the short ridge pole into the eyelets in the pole sleeve pockets

3- The hiking pole handles are attached to the ridge pole by either tying the straps or by wrapping the straps around the ridge pole and back over the handles until they go tight. Pacer Pole handles simply tuck in under the ridge pole and are lengthened (to maximum length) until the back panel of the tent goes taut. The handle straps should be tied to the top poles in strong winds for security.

4 - The hiking pole tips are inserted into the rings at the base of the rear panel. Peg the front end of the tent then stretch the hiking poles as far back and as far out as they go, until the ground straps go tight. The hiking poles should be pegged out at the tie-outs at these rings. Pull out the door panels and peg. If the door panels are too tight and tend to bell out at the bottom then the pitch length is too long.

5 - Peg out guylines as required

6 - The internal guylines can be adjusted to tension the tent and are useful for a quick, accurate pitch. They should be used internally when pitching the low end of the tent into the wind, to maintain the arc of the poles. If the low end of the tent is secured by the front guylines then the internal guylines can be unclipped and used externally, on the pole handles or ridge pole, for shifting wind directions

* The quick release buckles at the bottom of the doors should be used to pull the doors together whenever opening or closing the zip as they prevent excess strain being placed on the zip

7 - The inner tent has elastic toggles that attach to 'O' rings suspended from the underside of the flysheet. 4 quick release clips secure the bathtub floor to the flysheet corners. The inner tent can be left attached for pitching all as one and the bathtub floor can be adjusted to act as a length guide for accurate pitching.
