Robens Viper 2 Tent

The Robens Viper 2 Tent sleeps as the name suggests 2 people.  The inner sleeping compartment has a floor space of 220cm by 130cm at the widest points.  The porch of the tent is another 90cm long giving ample space for gear storage.  The Viper is semi Geodesic with three poles all crisscrossing.  Semi Geodesic means that the tent holds its shape without the need of guy ropes.  This means a much more stable tent (though not as much as a fully Geodesic) but obviously pegging it down and using guy ropes will help in wind and other adverse conditions.

The peak of the inner tent is 95cm high, this gives you much more comfort than many other tents, whether you just want to sit up and play Monopoly while it’s raining outside or whether you are just trying to change clothes.

The maximum weight of the tent is 2.9kg making this a well balanced tent between Weight x Size x Price - Its not super lightweight but with a recommended retail of £179 you get a lot of tent for your money!
