NORTENT Vern 1 PC (polycotton) is a very spacious tent intended for 1 (1,5)person. With its 3,5 kilograms it is not the lightest solo tent. But keep in mind that the breathable polycotton fabric makes an inner tent redundant. Thus creating more space inside Vern 1 PC compared to a lighter nylon tent with same outside measurements, wchich has a necessary inner tent that narrows down the inside area. Optimal for the longer hikes in mountains and over open plains where you really need a reliable shelter against the elements. With its aerodynamic shape and many possibilities for anchoring the tent to the ground, this tent is a true friend which will keep you safe in the different elements. We believe you should not have to fight the elements but rather become one with and thrive in them.
Vern 1 PC is designed with clean and correct lines that blend in with nature. We have placed great emphasis on the tent being able to be set up quickly and easily without obstacles. With a little practice you should be able to set up the tent in 2-3 minutes where you can then crawl into a warm and safe sleeping bag.
All exposed areas on the outer fabric are reinforced with Dyneema. Dyneema is considered the world's strongest fiber. It is therefore entirely appropriate that we use this fabric fiber in our tents.
We have used a fabric that takes the best from two worlds, with the good properties of synthetic fabric and the good properties of cotton. With the Hybrid fabric consisting of polyester and cotton, we present a strong, breathable and relatively light fabric, compared to a 100% cotton canvas. This means that you can still pack the tent into the backpack, with the breathable and insulating properties of a cotton tent. To prevent the polycotton fabric from absorbing dirt and moisture from the ground, we have installed a very robust nylon section at the very bottom of the tent. This is able to withstand a rougher treatment where you may load it with snow and stones to make the tent even more stable in inclement weather.
Vern 1 PC has a total of 3 poles that crosses at different points. In addition to the fact that this tent is free-standing with three aluminum poles, Vern 1 PC provides a hugely strong construction that can withstand severe weather and heavy snow-load
Vern 1 PC has a relatively spacious awning to be a one-man tent where there is plenty of space for a backpack, shoes and other equipment. At the same time, the awning is well adapted for cooking and use of cooking equipment. At the awning you will find a spacious living area with plenty of space for one person where this space easily accommodates a 190x60 cm sleeping pad in addition to gear and clothes. For cold days you can seal the doors in the tent completely. For hot days you can open them, but at the same time, have mosquito net covering the entrances against insects.
We have equipped the tent with several opportunities for storage. For organising all the small equipment you bring on your trip that often and mysteriously seem to vanish.
On calm days you can open the whole side of the tent to get "nature" into the tent. On wet and harsh days, you can leave the entrance partially closed, but still be sheltered from the weather and wind. On a good old rainy day, you may like to close the entrance completely. But still, there is of course the possibility to make dinner and food in the awning. Vern 1 PC presents many different options to let nature into the tent, but at the same time protected from wind and rain.
Vern 1 PC is designed for use through four seasons. The three poles make the tent extremely firm, tight and robust no matter if the snow falls, or during extreme weather.The three poles also make the tent 100% free-standing.
The flysheet for Vern 1 PC is a hybrid fabric where two different worlds come together. The polycotton fabric consists of a mixture of synthetic polyester and natural cotton. (PC polyester, cotton). Polyester reduces weight and at the same time helps to strengthen the fabric with its rip-stop properties compared to a 100% cotton fabric which would perform weaker in that regard. The cotton in the fabric makes the polycotton breathable in such a way that humid air passes through the fabric (does not hit the wall and create condensation), but at the same time protects against rain and precipitation from the outside. With the breathable fabric condensation is close to zero inside the tent. This means that you don't require an inner tent to protect from water dripping from the inside of the walls. The inner tent is more a necessity on synthetic, non-breathable fabrics, where condensation builds up more easily. The breathable fabric provides a minimum of condensation and the indoor climate is experienced as much drier and warmer compared to pure synthetic tents. Vern 1 PC is also equipped with two air-valves. This contributes to further ventilation in the tent. The PC fabric regulates the temperature inside if it gets too hot. On particularly hot days where there is an extra need for ventilation in the tent, you can also open the two doors to regulate the air flow further. In addition, it has sewn in mosquito nets in both entrances that keep the insects out when you want to keep the door open on the hot summer days.
