Customizable 7:R / 6:R / 5:R Shelter

From:  250.00 incl. VAT


The 7:R Shelter has seven sides, and sleeps up to six people. Lightweight and robust, it is designed to be pitched with two trekking poles (not included) joined with the optional Pole Union™. Alternatively, a telescoping tarp pole can be used.

These components can also be used to make a 5:R or 6:R shelter. The 5:R shelter has five sides and sleeps up to two people, the 6:R sleeps up to four.

The Elements form the sides of a Modular Shelter. Each Element has a zip along each edge of the roof, to attach other Elements. The zips also can be used as doors, to enter or exit the shelter. The Elements can be separately used as lightweight wind shelters, or extra Elements can be inserted to increase the size of the shelter.

The shelters also feature sidewalls, which can attach to adjacent sidewalls using hook and loop tape. Removable sidewall poles are included. By using the sidewalls in different configurations, a Modular Shelter can be pitched in four different ways, to suit the local conditions.

Each Element includes an adjustable rainproof side vent with insect mesh. The aluminium props can be removed if desired to save weight. At the top, the Rain Ceiling™ seals rain out and provides high level ventilation.
