My search for the perfect motorcycling tent continues.
The Navik 2 person may not be perfect but it represents top value in a very good tent. Perfect may not exisit at a reasonable price.
Over the years I've found that I need to buy a tent that I am prepared to kiss goodbye at a moments notice. A peg packed in the wrong place, will grind a hole, a crash may trowel it completely. These days they don't fall off at least.
The Navik is a very quick tent to pitch. Simply slip in the poles, peg out the rear and pull the tent forward by the vestibule. The tent stands up as you pull, then peg out the front, then the sides and the guy ropes.
Here's what Tatonka reckon.
Super stable and resistant tunnel tent. The Narvik model is our most waterproof tent with an amazing 8,000mm water column rating on flysheet and 10,000 on the base! Despite the tents bombproof shell it remains remarkeably lightweight.
The inner tent is already suspended in the outer tent so it can pitched as one, but can be quickly detached if required for flysheet first pitching - One feature that you will certainly appreciate in the rain, as the inner tent stays dry.
An another plus point is the smaller rear rod, which makes the tent lighter and smaller to pack up - without having to accept any losses in sleeping comfort and area usage. Thanks to the many tension points and robust workmanship, Narvik is a reliable form of accommodation, whatever the weather.
Base is 210T NYLON TAFFETA: This is a tightly and finely woven material for light tent floor. Quadruple PU-coated, with a 10,000 mm water column rating. (Nylon is much stronger than Polyester that many other tents are made of, Andy)
Flysheet is 185T POLYESTER PU: The material of the Basic Line is provided on the inside with a quadruple PU coating (water column 8000 mm). This light-weight polyester material has proven its UV-resistant and color-fast properties. Because this weave cannot absorb water, it does not expand in wet conditions. The fabric is mainly used with outer tents.
