OutDoor INDUSTRY AWARD 2013

OutDoor INDUSTRY AWARD 2013

SlingFin has invented a new way tents are pitched with the WebTruss system which allows the user to set the tent poles up first and then add the tent or flysheet. The WebTruss locks the tent poles in place and allows the tent to be easily set-up in high winds. The HardShell tent has a capacity of 3 – 4 people and comes with a HiWind Kit, which consists of 2 optional tent poles, that can be added to the WebTruss to further strengthen the geodesic structure. The HardShell is being used on expeditions worldwide with some expeditions using the HardShell as a wind block for tents that would normally be entrenched behind a snow wall.
