Defies wind and weather! VAUDE´s extremely lightweight 3-season tent with an inner-first construction for weight-watching trekkers and mountaineers is extremely wind resistant and durable. In addition, both sides are siliconized for even better weather protection at a low weight. The tent is easy and fast to set up. Spaciousness enough for 2 people who don't need a lot of space. Ideal for 1 person with a lot of gear. The high percentage of mesh in the inner tent and a fully adjustable ventilation opening create a pleasant microclimate. If you're on the road in warm and dry regions, you can use just the inner tent - it doesn't get any more comfortable and lightweight than this. To protect the environment, the textile primary materials feature resource conserving and eco-friendly manufacturing in accordance with the strict bluesign standard.
VAUDE products with Eco Finish are environmentally friendly and water-repellent without fluorocarbons (PFC). PFC belong to a group of chemical compounds that are used in many outdoor products to impregnate the outer fabric. They have been criticised for not being degradable, accumulating in the body and being suspected of being harmful to health. VAUDE has a clear commitment not to use PFC at all.
The VAUDE label "PVC-free" means that this product is manufactured 100% free of PVC (polyvinyl choride). It looks like tarpaulin canvas, is just as durable and waterproof, but is made from PU (polyurethane) coated fabric rather than PVC. PVC largely contains plasticizers (phthalates) that are considered to be harmful to your health.
Bluesign is the world's strictest standard for environmental protection, consumer protection and occupational safety. All environmentally relevant production aspects are critically examined and permanently optimized: Material use, energy, water, waste water, exhaust air, noise, waste, handling of hazardous substances. A bluesign product may only bear this mark if at least 95 % of all product components have been certified by bluesign.
