4 years ago

Tent-Mark Designs one pole solo tent Panda is produced by Yuka Koishi who is one of the leading solo female campers in the outdoor scene as well as an illustrator. 

Easy to set up and compact for easy carrying, this tent is often used by campers who are travelling on public transport or attending festivals. The new “Panda Light” is a lightweight version that maintains all of the functionality of the original.

The size is the same as the regular Panda model (2,400×2,400×1,500mm) 

The regular Panda model uses a 40-denier ripstop nylon for the flysheet and a 68-denier polyester taffeta for the inner bottom sheet, while the Panda Light uses a thinner 20-denier ripstop nylon. As a result, the overall weight has been reduced from 2.26kg to 1.94kg while maintaining the same water resistance of 1500mm.

As with the regular Panda model the flexibility of its set up is a key point, the inner can be set up vertically or horizontally

The release is scheduled for the late October but as it’s a popular item is it likely to sell out fast.
