4 years ago

Starting off with tough and lightweight chairs, cots and backpacks, Helinox continues to deliver excellent products. First reported back at the end of 2019 their long awaited new dome shelter is finally on sale in Japan.


A high spec and comfortable shelter that is easy to set up.

Helinox   Tac.V  Tarp 4.0   ¥149040

The Tac.V Tarp 4.0 is their new flagship, spacious self-supporting dome shelter that can be used in all seasons. 

The structure has strong wind resistance while maintaining breathability due to the front and rear mesh panels. In addition there is plenty of living space for both couples and families (W400cm×D400cm×H240cm).

The lower part of the sides can be rolled up to allow plenty of air flow but while still blocking out sunlight. You can also prop up the front panel with an extension pole to create a canopy. It can be used to both protect against harsh sunlight while also providing shelter from rainy weather.

The black section of the panel is coated with black pigment PU which has high sunlight resistance, which helps to suppress the temperature in the shelter while also maintaining a wide shaded area.

It is free standing and very easy to set up just by passing the pole through the sleeve. This is easily achieved even if setting up alone.

The shelter, pole and pegs all fit in a single duffel bag, making it easy to carry with a total weight of 8.7kg. An optional inner tent and set up utilizing a ground sheet are also available.

It is available for purchase on Helinox’s official website as well as A&F’s online store. It is likely to sell out fast so make sure not to miss out.
