Patagonia is developed in close cooperation between Helsport and Børge Ousland, and is based on Børges experiences from 30 years of expeditions in the Arctic and Antarctic regions. Security is always critical on such trips, and this tent has all the necessary details for safe and easy handling during the worst conditions.
The aerodynamic construction is especially important in wind. The tent will not be pushed down in strong winds, but instead the wind will flow over the tent roof. In addition to increased stability, the construction also saves weight, because the tent uses shorter poles and less fabric. The positioning of the poles, as well as their angle also makes the tent extra suitable in extreme wind. Enough height ensures comfort when you get weather-bound.
Patagonia withstands extreme strains, particularly wind, and the strength of the tent can increase even more by using double poles. There is room in all pole-channels, and a double pole-cup is standard. This tent really is optimal for winter-use; every single detail is developed to make sure things works as easily and functionally as possible, and is manageable with mittens. The storm flaps with integrated peg loops is in one piece around the tent. This reduces the pitching time especially during windy conditions. The peg loops are wide and not too long, perfect for pitching the tent with skis. The flysheet has a tear strength of 18 kg, making it one of the most durable in the market.
Ventilation is an important aspect on all tents. Patagonia has two angled vents on both sides that are placed high enough so they do not pack up with snow, despite windy conditions. In addition there are two centered vents placed high in the front and rear. Together these four vents create a safe and flexible venting system.
The weight given in the specifications is the total weight of the tent.
