Jamet Tents are designed in France primarily for the UK and Continental market place. Jamet (pronounced Ja-may) has a long history of producing mountain tents for the expedition market and also large family tents for the conventional camping market.
Jamet enjoy a great reputation for producing lightweight mountain tents with good quality materials such as rip-stop flysheets and alloy poles that give in-built reliability at a fraction of the price of comparable mountain tents. The best seller within the mountain tent range is the Jamet Dolomite 4000 which sleeps two people and comes in at just 2 kilos in weight and has a very moderate pack size of 250x160cm - Jamet Dolomite Mountain Tent
Jamet family tents such as the Jamet Piree 4 have also maintained their reputation over a long period of time. These family tents are primarily made for the Continental market and therefore hot weather conditions. As a consequence, Jamet will largely use loose (not sewn-in) groundsheets in their tents to allow for greater air circulation. Tents with sewn-in groundsheets in a hot climate will create stifling conditions inside the tent and are to be avoided. Jamet Piree Dome Tent.
