Even lighter, super strong, ethically made with the highest environmental standards... and you can look at the stars!

Spacious tent for ultralight trekking and weight-optimizing mountain and overland tours

  • wide opening entrances
  • excellent headroom and space distribution
  • eco-friendly manufacturing

It's hard to find high-quality tents that meet our demanding ethical standings, so much of the super high-end camping gear out there uses materials or production methods that harm the beautiful natural environments we want to be adventuring in - it's the ugly irony of the outdoors industry.

 So after years of fruitless searching we're happy to now be stocking Vaude tents - the top of the range Invenio Super Ultra Light is manufactured to their very exacting Green shape manufacturing standards and from materials that are designed to have an extra long lifespan.

 And even better, the Invenio SUL has all the well thought out little features we've come to look for in a tent - dual entrances so you don't have to climb over your companion to get in and out at night, a natty construction that means it takes 5 minutes to put up first time and less the second, and high head space so you don't feel like your trapped in cave on rainy nights where being outside is impossible. And this one you can pitch inner-only to keep you safe from wee beasties, but still gaze up at the stars through the mesh.

This is the three-man version of the gorgeous Invenio 3P SUL, so a bit more space (3 mats worth), a bit more headroom and only a few extra grams.

A real do everything tent, that means you don't have to sacrifice comfort for weight.

4-Way Zip

4-way entrance zip

Both Sides Siliconized

Both Sides Siliconized

  • 20 % longer lifespan - double-sided 3-ply coating for excellent UV reflection.
  • 8 times more tear resistant - 8-11 kg tear strength compared to 1.3 kg for PU coated fabrics.
  • Superior water beading properties, water simply pearls up.
  • Taping - silicon coated fabrics cannot be seam sealed (exception: VAUDE Silicone Seam Seal!).
  • Hand sealing with Silicone Seam Sealer is recommended for use in wet conditions.
Innertent Mapping

Three different materials ensure an excellent tent microclimate. Mosquito mesh ventilation can be closed or opened as needed; fine mesh allows water vapor to pass through, preventing condensation; 30D ripstop transfers fabric tension and provides excellent space utilization.

Stormcord Collector

Stormcord collector for guylines

Ventilation Hood

By an intake rain-protected ventilation. Adjustable via the 4-way entry zipper.

Dome Tent

Tent design for all-round use. Simple and quick setup, high wind stability and a healthy ratio of space to floor area mean that usage of these dome tents is highly flexible.

Control Air

Window vent is fully adjustable from the inside.

Swelling Yarn

Water-repellent swellable yarn: The cotton wrap swells as the humidity level increases, sealing the seam holes in the process. A water-repellent, fluorocarbon-free finish prevents the yarn from becoming wet and avoids mould stains. The yarn’s polyester core makes it highly tear resistant.
