The fiberglass rods are made with a new technology that achieves lower segment weight with increased resistance to breakage.
Lightweight and solid polyester flysheet fabric has high resistance to UV, does not age and retains its properties during prolonged exposure to sunlight and heat
It is a thin waterproof polyurethane layer applied several times on the inside of the tropic.Depending on the number of layers of coating, the tropic is resistant to water pressure up to 4000mm (Extreme and Hiking series), 3000mm (Trekking and Family series) and 2500mm (Outdoor series). The coating retains its elasticity even at very low temperatures well below freezing.
A family tent with two inner tents and the option of an awning by king poling the entrance. The dome-shaped construction, made of four poles crossing at five points, is extremely rigid and, despite its size, has excellent wind resistance. The flysheet is made of Polyester with a polyurethane coating, giving a water column of 4,000 mm. Seams are fully taped to protect against leakage. The groundsheet is made of nylon with a polyurethane coating giving it a water column of 10,000 mm. The poles are made up of laminate segments with a diameter of 11 mm (main diagonal poles) and 9.5 mm (cross poles).

The tent is double-skinned consisting of two inner tents and a flysheet. The inner tents have a trapezoidal floor plan with the entrance on the longest side. The outer tent is roughly rectangular. It has two entrances that can be king poled to form an awning over the entrance.
This is based on the principle of a pole structure threaded through sleeves made of perforated material in the outside of the flysheet. The flysheet and inner tents (which are suspended under the flysheet) are erected at the same time after threading the poles through the sleeves. The advantage of this method is that the inner tents can be detached from the flysheet and the flysheet can then be erected separately to create a single-skin tent.
There is a vent at the top of the flysheet dome. Vent covers are designed so they are not affected by the wind. This prevents leaks during rain with strong winds.
Pitching the tent
Thread the tent poles through the perforated sleeves on the outside of the flysheet and insert the steel pegs attached to the groundsheet into the tubes at the end of the poles. The inner tent is attached to the loops on the inside of the flysheet. Anchor the erected tent with pegs and guy ropes and tighten with the plastic buckles.
