NIGOR adds a new all-weather tent to its range
The new Spix from NIGOR is a technical three person tunnel tent designed for extreme conditions.
Weighing in at 5.08kg, the four pole tent is, according to NIGOR, the first expedition tent in the world to feature DAC’s new 13.55 PL poles, which are supposedly 45% stiffer than typical 11mm poles, but weigh 7% less.
It also features Gorlyn 40, an ultra-lightweight ripstop 40D nylon with an extremely high tear strength. Rather than mesh, the Gorlyn is combined with, FabVue, a new transparent breathable fabric that NIGOR says allows more visibility and more ventilation as well. When packed up the tent measures 55cm x 18cm.
There are front and side doors, plus zipped vents in the fly. The floor is made of 40D ripstop nylon with a TPU laminate (hydrostatic head of 10,000mm).
The Spix retails at £950 and will be available from www.nigor.eu and selected specialist outdoor retailers from May.
