The opinion of Aventure Nordique

The HotBox 2 from SlingFin is an ultra-lightweight 4-season tent. Reinforced, based on expedition tent techniques, it is designed to withstand harsh conditions. The WebTruss ceiling system keeps the structure in tension, ensuring the stability of the poles. It also makes it easier to pitch the tent in high winds. The WebTruss allows you to pitch the fly and the inner at the same time in poor weather conditions. For this setup, the WebTruss can also be replaced with DAC Twist clips (included) for additional weight savings.

The chamber can be reinforced for extra stability with an internal guy system. By simply stretching guy wires between the various attachment points, this allows the chamber structure to be strengthened for only a few grams. Also, loops on the inside of the awning allow the fabric to be quickly attached to the poles. The structure is made up of two DAC NFL 9.3mm hoops. The seams of the attachment points are reinforced. The zips have additional safety sliders in case of failure or breakage.

The HotBox 2 can accommodate two people. It has a large door without an apse, making it easy to enter and exit the tent. There is a rotting tarpaulin on each side of the tent to store equipment underneath. These areas are accessible from inside the tent via circular openings. Made from extremely lightweight fabrics, it is made from 20D Ripstop nylon fabric, siliconised on both sides. The chamber is made of a solid fabric to offer more protection against wind and cold and is also water-repellent. For ventilation, in addition to the mesh areas on the doors, there is a circular opening through the flysheet and the chamber. Eight storage pockets are located in the inner.
