New for 2019 and voted as Best Glamping Tent in Camping magazines Editors Choice awards 2019.
There has been a big demand in recent years towards Glamping style tents like Bell tents, Tipis and Yurts, both as ready pitched holidays and camping. Robens have always made good quality Polycotton Tents in these style as Poled tents, with the exception of a Yurt and for 2019 they have used the modern Air frame technology to introduce a Yurt into their range
A Polycotton Air frame Yurt. Using Robens proven Hydro Tex Ripstop Polycotton for the flysheet. We are big big fans of Canvas or Polycotton as a material for tents.
If you have camped recently you have more than likely camped in a Polyester tent. You will therefore have experienced some of the following. On a hot day the temperature inside your tent would have been unbearable hot. Even quite early in the morning when you are trying too sleep, its to hot to stay in bed. On a Cold day or in the evenings as soon as the sun goes down, your tent would get cold very quickly. On a windy day, it sounds like you are sleeping inside a crisp packet. But by far the biggest issue with a Polyester tent is the Condensation. As Polyester is a man made material and completely waterproof, it does not breath so the condensation has nowhere to go. It just settles on the inside roof and walls of your tent and drips down onto the groundsheet or onto you. Result is you feel damp, your clothing and equipment are wet or damp and you spend ages mopping up the water from the walls and groundsheet. The vast majority of complaints about leaking Polyester tents are traced to Condensation.
Camping in a Canvas or Polycotton tent the vast majority of the highlighted problems do not occur. Canvas or Polycotton tents breath, therefore the air inside can escape through the fabric. This helps to regulate the temperature inside. They stay much cooler in the day when the sun is out and much warmer at night or on colder days. The Crisp Packet noise is also greatly reduced as the fabric is quieter when dry and when wet has a unique trick. Cotton fibres as individual threads swell up when wet, but the sheet of fabric shrinks. This has the affect that any imperfections in the Canvas seal themselves, and stitch holes seal themselves but the whole fabric of the tent will tighten itself up and stop flapping about. This make the performance of Canvas or Polycotton tents much better and stronger in wet and windy conditions. Just the weather we get in the UK.
Now hopefully we have given you food for thought as to why you should look at investing in a Poly-cotton tent like the Aero Yurt.
Now combine this with the Easy pitching advantages of an Air frame. No poles to assemble, you simply position the tent on the ground, peg down the groundsheet and inflate the Air Tubes, before finishing your pegging out.
The Aero Yurt offers large single space with no poles obstructing the space as you would find in a Bell tent or Tipi. Being a dome structure gives increased strength in windier conditions. There is a fully sewn in groundsheet to prevent bugs and draughts. Large windows with privacy blinds and lots of mesh windows to again stop bugs and add ventilation.
With all the advantages of a Polycotton Flysheet, and easy pitching Air frame the Robens Aero Yurt will ensure a comfortable holiday experience. Your Children will especially enjoy the camping experience of not camping in a tent but in a Yurt.
What the manufacturer says:-
The Aero Yurt inflates quickly and easily from a single valve. It stands out on the camp ground where this versatile tent provides multiple applications, including eight-person bedroom/living area, meeting room, play area, hang-out and more. Internal curtains at the windows enhance the impression that this has traditional-style solid HydroTex® Polycotton RS walls yet can be rolled up for views out. The front door has a mesh panel behind and low vents aid air flow.
Robens Wind Test: The determination of the performance of a Robens tent in wind is based on the knowledge and technique available to Robens at the time of testing. During the test we register the maximum (MAX) speed impact a tent was subjected and the average (AVG) wind speed at which structural instability occurred. This may appear as a broken/deformed pole, or the collapse of the tent and subsequent return to shape when the wind drops. At no point was any form of catastrophic failure experienced up to the maximum wind speed.
HydroTex® Polycotton RS fabric has been developed for our Airventure range and for the rigours of family camping. It maintains a stable internal micro-climate and allows water vapour to freely pass through while keeping out water. This tough, fast drying fabric is a 35/65 ripstop cotton/polyester mix with UV-inhibitors and a DWR coating finish to add longevity to the fabric.;
