What more needs to be said? The Force Ten Classics have been used by expeditions, adventurers and youth groups for over 40 years. These traditional ‘A-frame’ tents are tough, durable and easy to erect and perform exceptionally well in all kinds of weather conditions (just as well if you're camping in the UK).
The frame is made with strong but lightweight Power Lite 7001-T6 alloy poles. The flysheet is a Protex DWR coated cotton with a cotton inner tent. Cotton has greater breathability than polyester or nylon and reduces the chances of condensation plus it keeps the tent cool on hot days and warmer on cold days.
The Classic Mk5 sleeps four people in the amply proportioned 200 x 270cm inner tent and there's a small but useful 80cm deep front porch area that is ideal for making that early morning brew. As you'd expect with a tent of this calibre it's packed with top technical features such as Line-Lok runners, Duraflex buckles and zip pulls plus high strength guylines.
