The opinion of Aventure Nordique
The CrossBow 2 Four-Season 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 the entire frame to be set up before the chamber is attached. This system offers more strength than traditional tents.
The chamber can be reinforced for extra stability with an internal guy rope system. By simply stretching guy ropes (not supplied) between the various attachment points, this allows the chamber to be reinforced at a cost of 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 PL 10.65 mm hoops. The structure can be reinforced to support the weight of the snow by attaching hiking poles to the ends of the roof pole with the OutRigger attachment system. The seams of the attachment points are reinforced.
The CrossBow 2 Four-Season tent can accommodate two people and has a volume of 1.66 m3. It has eight storage pockets and two large doors for easy entry and exit. The tent is made of extremely light fabrics, with a 20-layer Ripstop nylon fabric, siliconized on both sides. The chamber is made of a solid fabric to offer more protection against wind and cold. For ventilation, in addition to the mesh areas on the doors, there is a circular opening in the flysheet and the chamber.
