Trapper Chief

The Trapper Chief sleeps ten or 6 with the optional inner. It features an arch main door comprising a flat door panel with large mesh window backed by a curtain. This provides unrestricted access and its shape ensures the excellent head room created by the aluminium alloy centre pole continues into the entrance. The tipi also has a flue port and a door-to-pole zip that allows the groundsheet to fold back if using a tent stove. Low vents assist airflow and the neat Internal Apex Vent Control is simple to adjust from inside.

Robens Tests
Robens Wind Test: The determination of the performance of a Robens tent in wind is based on the knowledge and technique available to Robens at the time of testing. During the test we register the maximum (MAX) speed impact a tent was subjected and the average (AVG) wind speed at which structural instability occurred. This may appear as a broken/deformed pole, or the collapse of the tent and subsequent return to shape when the wind drops. At no point was any form of catastrophic failure experienced up to the maximum wind speed.
