So 2022 is looking like a great year for kit innovation and provided the country(ies) stays open, it will be a full year of adventures. Personally my plan is to pack up the van with camping gear and head to Europe on a year long overland trip, doing the ‘Schengen Shuffle’ along the way (3 months in Schengen countries, followed by 3 months out – new Brexit rules, ‘sigh’).
So in light of the fun and all round festivities, I wanted to take a sneak peak at some of the new gear that Robens is bringing out and one of my favourite items that I can’t wait to try out is the new Klondike PRS tent. It is 11.2kg which is lighter than the canvas version (16.7kg) and it also has a chimney channel through the roof which I am looking forward to testing out with the Denali Tent Stove.
The front entrance panel on the floor is flat, so potentially it is a tent that is accessible for wheelchair users and being able to comfortably house six people it can easily have less people with more space for gear like wheelchairs or extra food (so you don’t have to skimp on the chocolate)!
I feel this tent will be most at home nestled in the woodlands on the edge of the mountain range overlooking the surrounding, white dusted peaks with a hot brew (Yorkshire of course) and the warmth of the stove filling the air. This vision is crystal clear in my imagination and now we just need it to come to life… (fingers crossed no restrictions) I will update you on how I get on when I am living this picture perfect scene.
