“A touring tent used from the desert to the North Pole.”
“Built to go to the ends of the world at a down to earth price.”
In many respects, the Khyam Igloo is a revolutionary tent within the Khyam Range. Khyam have introduced a brand new colourway and upgraded the specification adding panoramic front porch windows with internal privacy curtains and a porch skylight ideal for a bit of evening star gazing. The Igloo has always been one of our most popular tents that utilises the Khyam Rapidex™ Quick Erect System, whereby all poles remain sewn into the flysheet and can simply be clicked into place in a matter of seconds. The Igloo’s pitching and striking take a matter of minutes so you know that you are free to move between sites with ease. The tried and tested Rapidex™ System uses strong, solid fibreglass poles and durable, hard wearing nylon auto joints. Due to these facts, this 3-man tent is ideal for festivals, auto-touring, or any occasion when you need a reliable tent that can be erected within 30 seconds!
Key Selling Points
The front and back porch provides a nice area to store your gear or have your morning cuppa! The inner-tent is created using breathable polyester to allow for a comfortable atmosphere throughout the night, preventing condensation forming. The inner-tent has a waterproof sewn-in groundsheet for added protection against those pesky insects, with ample room for 3 adults. A helpful feature on the inner-tent is the pockets for storage of your items. There’s extra storage space to the rear of the inner-tent too due to the Igloo’s hexagonal shape. A separate SPS Groundsheet is available to purchase to cover the whole area of the Igloo. As this is an added extra it doesn’t come included with the purchase of just the tent, but it’s worth it as is ensures your belongings are kept clean and dry in the porch area.
Now for the technical jargon – the Igloo benefits from using the Khyam commissioned WeatherWeave Pro Flysheet with taped seams, and additional polyurethane coating ensures excellent hydrostatic performance.
