Roll-up side walls with 360° Mesh for ventilation

Retractable side walls make the tent very versatile and multifunctional. During the day you use it as a shade area, play-, lounge area, ... and at night as your trusted camping tent.

The Apex series is equipped with a 360° screen wall. So even when the tent is used as an open structure, or maximally ventilated, it can be completely sealed from insects.

The door with an integrated mosquito net ensures an insect-free environment, which can be easily operated with quick release fasteners.

Groundsheet with zippers

The ground sheet is made of durable 100% waterproof PVC (650 gr/m²) for maximum comfort. The bathtub-shaped groundsheet is virtually indestructible and allows camping on any surface. It can stand in 5 cm of water for months without a drop penetrating. Moreover, it is completely detachable so you can set up the tent without the groundsheet, or for easy cleaning.

Trustworthy zippers: SBS zippers - ISO 17025.

Guy ropes & tensioners

UV-treated polyester guy ropes equipped with aluminum tensioners and carabiners for easy tensioning. The guy ropes consist of an inner core and an outer sheath. Both inner core and outer sheath are composed of high-quality polyester, which is capable of withstanding some of the harmful effects of UV radiation. The inner core provides the primary strength and load-bearing capacity of the rope, while the outer sheath serves as a protective layer for increased durability.

Spring-loaded tent poles and ground pegs

The central tent pole and A-frame for the door are made of galvanized steel, and are spring-loaded for easy assembly. An intelligently designed central pole protects the tent and has an eye at the top for attaching lamps or other objects.

Tent pegs made of forged steel, also suitable for hard surfaces.

Compatibility with stoves

All of our tents can be equipped with a stove. No tent comes with a pre-installed stove opening or Exit as this limits your options. Our Exits allow you to install any type of stove, anywhere. They are also easy to install in about ten minutes.
