Product description
The southern cross is known to be one of the most distinctive constellation of sky from the southern hemisphere. The Southern Cross 1-person tent though owes its name probably to the pole systems characteristically lying outside over the cross. This gives stability to the tents and enables a completely free-standing construction. This means that the inner and outer tent are connected and set up at the same breath. The big advantage: if it storms or rains, the penetration of water is avoided even before the tent is set up.

Rain is the keyword anyway - all of the outside materials are completely waterproof. The outer tent consists of a robust nylon ripstop with a thread-strength of 30 denier. For additional shelter and higher durability it is silicone and PU-coated. The tent base resists even a water column of 10,000 without any problems. Therefore the Southern Cross 1 is appropriate even for demanding touring in winter and general bad weather condition - which of course you would wish to nobody. But at least with this you can be sure that you own a stormproof shelter. All in all the Southern Cross is, despite of its high protection function, still a lightweight dome tent for backpacking and a high number of other outdoor activities - no matter if the weather isn’t playing along or if you want to do your next tour in the winter.
