The Saitaris is the tent to use anytime overall strength and stability are the most significant priorities. It is ideal for exacting base camp use, especially in high mountains, exposed or above tree line terrain, and arctic environments.
It is also an excellent option for particularly demanding mobile journeys in exposed and/or relentlessly harsh conditions. At the same time, the Saitaris is appropriate anytime roomy comfort for up to four persons is important.
The Saitaris Kerlon 1800 outer tent fabric, 10 mm poles and dome construction unquestionably make it the exceptionally rugged tent it is, capable of handling both heavy wind and snow loads. But the Saitaris design is what truly sets it apart.
Its innovative pole system puts two lengthwise poles, in full pole sleeves, across the tents peak, and two side poles in three-quarter length pole sleeves that lay across both lengthwise poles. The lower portion of the side poles are fastened by clips, and all four poles are secured by the same adjustable pole tensioners found in our tunnel tents, imparting the proper pole tension for optimal structural strength.
This system makes for an extremely robust, extraordinarily roomy dome tent that can be set up without difficulty by one person, even in bad weather. In addition, it features the same standard and extended vestibule design from the Keron GT tunnel tent, which provides both extraordinary vestibule space and adds, via the hooded vestibule vents, lengthwise ventilation that complements that from the two roof vents.
Lastly, special attachment points on the vent cover, guy lines on both vent cover and vent hoods, as well as numerous tent guy lines many of whose attachment points are built to wrap around pole crossing points all enhance the Saitaris ability to handle the most demanding conditions.
Because of both its tremendous strength and its spaciousness, the new Saitaris has a remarkably broad range of use. Those needing the ultimate base camp tent such as mountaineers tackling remote, high altitude climbs and expedition travelers to the most demanding environments will find its strength and its excellent space to weight ratio invaluable.
Ski tourers and paddle tourers alike will value both its roomy interior and its gear-swallowing vestibules, as well as its easy-to-pitch, self-supporting structure. These same users will also find the Saitaris attributes perfect for less formidable adventures, such as leisurely family camping trips to the beach or the mountains, or for car camping.
