The Robens Challenger 2 is updated for the 2014 season and is now the smallest and lightest tent in the Robens Sierra Range. The Challenger is a lightweight, 2-berth, 3-season backpacking tent for demanding trekkers.
The compact tunnel design has a sloped aerodynamic profiling for enhanced wind shedding capabilities. The tunnel shape is kept stable with the help of the four square webbing straps that run under the tent that also ensure distortion free pitching.
The Challenger 2 has a simple 2-pole construction with long pole sleeves and is lightening fast to pitch. The clever off-set flysheet design creates a gear storage area adjacent to the entrance of the tent and there's a second zipped storage area to the rear.
The breathable polyester inner is an amply sized 2-berth and features mesh storage pockets and gear rope to help with kit storage. There's a single side door with a mesh double door to keep the bugs out and enough space for the storage of a couple of rucksacks.
