Red Label tents are built for both short and longer trips in generally less demanding conditions in all seasons, such as less exposed mountain terrain, forests in both winter and summer, and the like, but where you still may encounter severe situations. Their emphasis on lighter weight makes them less than ideal for harsh environments and extended adventures in demanding conditions. They are, however, quite capable of withstanding heavy storm conditions. Experienced users sometimes choose these tents for more demanding adventures because they knowingly accept the trade-off of strength for lighter weight.
Red Label tents' materials favour lighter weight over absolute strength:
- Our Kerlon 1200 outer tent fabric, which has a 12 kg/26.5 lb tear strength
- 9 mm poles
- 3 mm Vectran & polyester guy lines
- Lighter weight inner tent and floor fabrics
- Lighter weight zippers
- V-Pegs, our lighter, but still very strong, pegs
Red Label tents are designed to maximize light weight while still retaining appropriate strength, ease of use and comfort in all conditions:
- Outer tent goes all the way to the ground for all season protection
- Different length poles in some models reduce weight
- At least one vent high up for ventilation even if the tent is dug down into the snow
- The interior is designed to offer roominess at the lightest weight
Red Label tents are ideal for trips in any season where lighter weight is the priority and are quite capable of standing up to challenging terrain and conditions.
