Description

Probably the lightest two-skin tent in the world

The Lofoten 1 ULW, with a race-weight of 490g, is one of the lightest two-layer tents in the world and definitely has the smallest pack size. This is all down to the new, state of the art aluminium poles with ultra-short segment lengths, enabling an uncompressed pack size of only 11 x 22cm. The fabric is the new Nortech T-NY 7D with a weight of only 26g/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. The Lofoten can transform from a 1 to a 2 man by simply replacing the inner tent.

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 referring to the shape of the island. The neighbouring island Flakstadøya was originally named Vargfót meaning 'the foot of a wolf'.
