NORTENT Vern 2 is an extremely robust tent with plenty of room for 2 people along with equipment and cooking. Very suitable for the longer hikes into the wilderness far away from houses and cabins where you really need reliable protection 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 2 is designed to provide 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 3-4 minutes where you both 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.
The flysheet made of silnylon is of course waterproof. But like all quality tents with this type of fabric, the seams should be lubricated with a special mixture of silicone so that the seams are 100% water proof. However, a dense tent presents a challenge, and that is air circulation. If the air is not circulated, you will experience condensation inside walls of the outer flysheet (not inside the inner tent). Ventilation is therefore absolutely essential to avoid this. Vern 2 is in fact therefore equipped with 6 air valves. Two air valves at the bottom at each end of the tent, where fresh air can find its way in, and one above each of the four entrances where moist air finds its way out. The four air valves at the top also function as an extra overhang and protection against rain when you leave the entrance open.
Vern 2 has two very spacious awnings where there is plenty of space for a backpack, shoes and other equipment. At the same time, the awnings are well adapted for cooking and use of cooking equipment. At the awning you will find a spacious inner tent with plenty of space for two persons where the inner tent easily accommodates two 190x60 cm sleeping pad in addition to gear and clothes. For cold days you can seal the doors in the inner tent completely. For hot days you can open them, but still and at the same time, have mosquito net covering the entrances against insects.
We have equipped the inner tent with a total of 4 storage pockets so that you can keep all your small stuff and gear in order..
You can open all four entrances to bring "nature" into the tent. On wet and harsh days, the design of the tent still provides shelter from the weather and wind with the entrances open. In really stormy weather, you may prefer to close it completely. But still, there is of course the possibility of doing all your cooking in the awning.. Vern 2 is designed for flexible use where you are presented with many different options to let nature into the tent, but at the same time be protected from wind and rain.
The thick and very strong fabric sewn into the seams in realtions to the clips attached to the poles plays a crucial role in efficiently distributing the external forces across a larger area along the seam. When for example strong winds act on the tent, the thick reinforcement, serves as a robust support structure..
As the wind exerts force on the tent fabric, the thick reinforcement helps disperse this force over a broader surface. This distribution of force prevents concentrated stress points and minimizes the risk of tearing or damage to the tent material. Essentially, the reinforcement acts as a buffer, absorbing and diffusing the energy generated by external forces
The large area coverage of the thick fabric along the seam is particularly significant. By extending the reinforcement along the seam, where the fabric panels are joined together, the forces are effectively spread across the entire length of the seam. This not only enhances the overall strength of the tent but also ensures that no single point along the seam bears an excessive load.
In essence, the thick reinforcement sewn into the seam functions as a strategic component, working in tandem with the thinner nylon fabric to create a resilient and wind-resistant structure. By distributing the pull and energy from the wind over a wide area along the seam, the tent becomes better equipped to withstand varying weather conditions, providing durability and reliability in challenging environments.
Oh, absolutely! Vern 2 is designed for double poling, a feature made possible by ditching traditional tent sleeves. Imagine yourself in the thick of challenging weather relentless winds threatening to disrupt your shelter or sudden weather changes. Double poling becomes your secret weapon, providing unmatched stability and adaptability.
With the freedom to double up on poles and the elimination of restrictive sleeves, you gain a significant advantage in creating an ultra-secure shelter. It's not just about setting up a tent; it's about confidently navigating the unpredictable elements. Whether you're contending with fierce winds or embracing a surprise snowfall, double poling offers a practical solution that takes your adventures to the next level in terms of adapting to the elements.

Oh.. Yes. You may choose if you want to add an optional stove- jack for your Vern 2. In the wild expanse of outdoor adventures, the inclusion of a tent stove transforms the camping experience, turning a simple shelter into a haven of warmth, coziness, and improved indoor climate. The soft glow from the stove not only offers a welcoming ambiance but also dispels the chill of the night air, creating a cocoon of comfort. Beyond its role as a heat source, the tent stove eradicates dampness, making the indoor climate dry and pleasant. In essence, the tent stove isn't just about cooking; it's the catalyst for lasting memories, turning a camping trip into a journey filled with warmth and cherished moments.
We offer an optional footprint for Vern 2. Using a footprint can extend the lifespan of the floor and shield it from potential damage, though it isn't essential for the tent's functionality. The thick and solid 70 D floor on the inner tent is both waterproof and puncture-proof. While the tent functions effectively without a footprint, some individuals prefer using one to keep mud away or to cover the vestibule floor. Footprints may play a role in preventing moisture from the ground from condensing on the inner surface of the outer tent. Our available footprints cover the entire underside of the tent, including the vestibules
You often come home from a trip with fewer stakes than you went out with. Or you simply want to add extra stakes to your equipment. NORTENT aluminum pegs are made of an aluminum alloy that promotes the proper properties of tent pegs. A tent peg should be strong, endure a lot of stress, but at the same time be somewhat flexible so that it bends instead of breaking straight by too much stress. Our stakes are therefore made of an aluminum alloy in the 7000 series. This is perhaps the market's strongest aluminum alloy, where our alloy has a degree of 7001 aluminum.. This is a degree of aluminum that promotes what we believe are important properties of a tent peg. Strong, but at the same time somewhat flexible. With the fearherlight pegs, you are able to reduce the total weight as these are half the weight as the standard pegs. But of course. They are not as robust.
