The Robens Klondike Tent is a roomy bell tent that provides excellent levels of comfort for up to six people. The vertical door makes for easy access, especially in bad weather, while protective eaves run around the tent to shelter door and walls from rain run off. The groundsheet also features a zip to the centre alloy pole, enabling it to be rolled away at the door to create a safe area in which to use the optional stove and a place for muddy boots. The neat internal apex air control can be easily opened and closed from the inside and works with low-level mesh vents to control ventilation. The construction is also a mix of cotton and polyester, providing both an optimum combination of durability and breathability.
Robens Wind Test
The determination of the performance of a Robens tent in wind is based on the knowledge and technique available to Robens at the time of testing. During the test they register the maximum (MAX) speed impact a tent was subjected and the average (AVG) wind speed at which structural instability occurred. This may appear as a broken/deformed pole, or the collapse of the tent and subsequent return to shape when the wind drops. At no point was any form of catastrophic failure experienced up to the maximum wind speed. The MAX speed for this tent is 168 km/h, and AVG 153 km/h.
