X1 Assault / Tent

OutDoor INDUSTRY AWARD 2013

Fabric
The major innovation claimed by the X1 assault is the choice of fabric to combat the problem of condensation that is endemic in single-skin tents.
The polyester fabric making up the main body of the tent has, in addition to its conventional polyurethane coating, a second, activated carbon coating on the inner face (a coating we have called crux X-tex). This activated carbon coating is able to absorb water molecules in both the vapour and the liquid state, and then ‘transports’ them out of the tent through the monolithic hydrophilic PU coating.
