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.
With that said. Even though cotton fabrics and tents are breathable, condensation can still occur, especially in damp and cold surroundings with little air movement. This is due to a combination of factors such as air circulation, temperature differences, and humidity:
Tents are typically equipped with vents to allow air circulation. This helps remove humid air from inside the tent and brings in cooler, fresh air from the outside. However, when the warmer, humid air encounters cooler surfaces, like the tent fabric at night, it can lead to condensation. Air circulation and breathable fabric helps to mitigate, but not always eliminate, this issue. Nevertheless, cotton tents reduce condensation significantly.
Nighttime temperatures can be significantly lower than daytime temperatures, especially in mountainous areas or under cold weather conditions. This temperature difference can cause the humidity inside the tent to condense on the inner surface of the tent fabric. This is especially true in particularly humid environments, such as near water or a marsh. Again. Breathable fabric helps to reduce the condensation.
If the tent is placed in a sheltered or quiet environment, it may have less air circulation, increasing the chances of condensation. Stagnant air makes it harder to remove the accumulated moisture inside the tent. This physical principle applies to all materials, breathable or non-breathable.
There will be situations where condensation occur, especially in environments where the air is stagnant (resulting in poor air circulation), damp, and cold. In such cases, condensation is unavoidable, driven by physical principles that are impossible to avoid. This holds true whether you are in a tent with breathable properties or a non-breathable one. Similarly, in a cold cabin with inadequate air circulation, these physical principles will lead to damp walls inside the cabin unless you ventilate or provide some form of heating.
Breathable polycotton helps to reduce condensation considerably. But it is no magical wand that can bend the laws of nature. End users may however help further to avoid condensation by picking appropriate camping-grounds. Pitching the tent close to the water, stagnate airflow and low temperature. You will experience condensation as condensation is bound to physical principles mentioned above. So. Condensation is always a symbiosis between the design of the tent, the fabric, climate, surroundings and the knowledge from end-user.
