The opinion of Aventure Nordique
The Samaya Basecamp from French brand Samaya Equipment is a tent designed for the most committed expeditions requiring the installation of a base camp. Very spacious, it can accommodate 4 people for the night in a volume of 3.5 m3. Without the inner chamber for use as a mess tent, its volume increases to 6 m3 (floor area: 8.9 m²), which considerably increases its accommodation capacity.
It has a geodesic structure which optimises the interior volume while ensuring a robust architecture, capable of withstanding extremely violent snowfalls and winds. The arches intersect at 7 points to form a concrete structure, guaranteeing its reliability against the elements. In addition, there are 55 metres of guy wires!
The Samaya Basecamp tent is equipped with several entrances, so that you never have to face the wind. Two entrances are located on either side of the large vestibule at the front of the tent, and one at the back, which opens onto the small vestibule. These two vestibules allow the storage area to be divided from the kitchen area.
The rain fly is made of 30mm high tenacity nylon 66 ripstop, PU/silicone, with a waterproofing rating of 3000mm water column. The floor is made of 70 high tenacity nylon, with a waterproofness of 100000 millimeters. The 5 poles are 10.65mm DAC PL. The tent is supplied with unbreakable plastic pegs from SwissPiranha.
When folded, the Samaya Basecamp tent can be divided into 2 or 3 different bags to allow you to spread out the load and bulk.
