The Challenger uses the tried and tested side-entry sloping tunnel design to provide stable and comfortable sleeping space with enhanced headroom for two people while minimising pack size and weight. Storage is maximised by offsetting of the inner tent to give extra porch space, and there is also zip access from the inner to an additional storage area at the foot of the tent. Mesh pockets and a gear rope add to storage options.
The fabric does not burn, but melts when in direct contact with flames.
HydroTex HD fabric is made exclusively for Robens to address our uncompromising need for a light, strong, durable flysheet material. The tough 75 denier high density polyester has a polyurethane (PU) coating with a 5000 mm hydrostratic head waterproof rating, UV-inhibitors and is fire retardent for safety. This fabric will withstand years of heavy use, no matter how harsh the conditions.
Flat sleeves allow easy pole threading, low profile and wind resistance.
Strong, flexible and durable tape is glued and heat-sealed over flysheet seams for effective long-term waterproofing in this critical area.
Guyline retainers hold folded guylines securely when packing away to avoid the nightmare of tangles and knots later.
The Robens Low Vent airflow system allows a healthy airflow through the tent for ventilation. It can be adjusted easily to reflect changing weather conditions.
