The Cave XL inflatable tent from Heimplanet will withstand the most severe storm
The German company of tourist equipment Heimplanet has introduced a new model in a series of inflatable tents with special characteristics. The new Cave XL 4-Season has become larger in size, has more stability and is distinguished by a bright color. The model is suitable for living in windy wastelands with a high risk of storm gusts. Cave XL 4-Season was developed in collaboration with the Icelandic clothing brand 66°North to withstand harsh and unstable weather conditions.
The Cave XL case has a double design with an inner shell made of breathable nylon 40D and an outer shell made of waterproof polyester ripstop 100D. The fabric of the outer tent is stretched to the ground to protect from snow and moisture applied from below. The bright orange color not only pays homage to the storm shelters of the Icelandic Highlands, but also makes it easier to find a tent in all weather and light conditions.
Unlike tents with rigid supports, where installation takes a lot of time, Cave XL is laid out quickly and simply. You just need to roll it out on the ground and pump air into a two-layer exo-frame, which can be done in less than a minute. Anchors and guy ropes fasten the tent to the ground. The cross inflatable beams create a solid structure that keeps the tent fabric stretched. The multi-chamber beam system inflates as a whole, but allows you to overlap individual sections in case of a puncture or leak.
Inside the Cave XL there are wall pockets for equipment. The Cave XL weighs 6.2 kg and folds down to the size of a 30-liter container.
The limited edition tent is on sale for 990 euros, but now it is listed as sold out on the Heimplanet website. It can be ordered from the manufacturer for $1199.
