The CrossBow 2 Mesh by SlingFin is a robust 3-Season dome tent for trekking tours in temperate latitudes. It gets its name because of its lightweight mesh inner tent, which places less emphasis on wind and weather protection, but its strengths in terms of ventilation and mosquito protection come to the fore.
The special thing about the CrossBow 2 configuration is certainly its basic structure, the so-called WebTruss setup. This offers two diagonal boom channels for the lightweight DAC aluminium boom and can also be set up in windy conditions without any problems, as it offers almost no attack surface. As soon as this base is standing, the inner and outer tent can be clipped to it in no time at all. As an option, two trekking poles can be attached to the ridge pole and tensioned above it for additional stability - this is not a must, however, but ensures less fluttering and increased storm stability, especially in wind-whipped areas.
The SlingFin CrossBow 2 Mesh offers a solid overall package for trekking tours of all kinds and, depending on the weather, the ideal set-up option.
