Description

Probably the lightest full scale tent in the world

Lofoten 1 ULW is with a race weight of 490 g one of the lightest two layer tents in the world – but when packed it is definitely the smallest. The secret is the new state of the art aluminium poles with ultra short segment lengths enabling an uncompressed pack size of only 11 x 22 cm. The fabric is the new Nortech T-NY 7D with a weight of only 26 g/m2 and a thread count of 580. The 3 layers of silicone coating on each side ensures high durability, water repellency and the new Flex-rope Suspension System adds high flexibility and strength. Lofoten can transform from a 1 to a 2 man version by simply replacing the inner tent.

Features:
  • ultra light and compact
  • adjustable cabin width
  • can be pitched in about 2 minutes
  • possible to pitch inner tent alone
  • small porch for storage
  • centered foot end pole to optimize space
  • Nordisk Flex-rope Suspension System
  • integrated packsack in detachable inner pocket
  • arches and 2 mesh ventilations to optimise airflow
  • comes with a free bonus pack incl. pegs, guy ropes etc.

The story behind the name

Lofoten is an archipelago within the Arctic Circle in the Nordland county of Norway. It experiences one of the world's largest elevated temperature anomalies relative to its high latitude. Lofoten means ”foot of a lynx” probably refering to the shape of the island. The neighbour island Flakstadøya was originally named Vargfót meaning 'the foot of a wolf'.
