Special forces issue one-man tunnel tent comprising:

Tent made from an upper waterprooof, breathable, camo gortex fabric while the the groundsheet is made from tough waterproof PU nylon which is rubberised on the interior.

6 fibre glass flexible poles which feed through sewn-in channels on the outside of the bag and locate in foot pockets to form the hooped section. The set included are better than the originals (the replacement set have screwed in connectors, making certain not to slip out of position). These alone cost us £30 and are included within this sale.

Height of the bag at the apex of the hoops is 14/15 ins (37-38cm), the width at the front opening is approx. 35 ins (89/90cm). Overall length is approx 8 ft 9ins (2.67m) which includes the very useful storage area in front of the main zipped opening.

Webbing loops are available at various points on the groundsheet to peg down if required and also some guy ropes for the same function.

This is a brilliant piece of lightweight special forces kit weighing 1300g. No pegs nor compression sack are included within this sale.
