The Slingfin Crossbow 2 Mesh tent combines an ultralight construction with Slingfin's innovative WebTruss and OutRigger design that can be optimised to handle harsh weather conditions.
Unique to Slingfin, the WebTruss system lets you pitch the CrossBow easily in high winds. Unlike standard pole sleeves, which can lead to pole breakage when pitched in windy conditions, the WebTruss lets you fully set up and tension the pole structure before clipping the tent body to the poles. The WebTruss system effectively holds the pole structure in tension to deliver a greater degree of strength for weight than traditional clip-style tents.
A bow pole in the roof adds extra structural stability while the innovative OutRigger design lets you attach your trekking poles as additional uprights for further stability against harsh winds or snow loading. An internal guyline system can also be utilised with the included cord letting you tension the tent without venturing outside in poor weather.
The freestanding dome is easy to pitch with room enough for two people with sleeping pads and kit. Dual doors offer hassle-free access for both occupants with a vestibule on either side for added storage. The Crossbow's inner 15D nylon no-see-um mesh fabric is great for camping in warmer climates, aiding moisture management and protecting against bugs.
Slingfin use only the finest grade fabrics and materials in their shelters. A lightweight 15D nylon ripstop flysheet optimises pack-weight and features a silicone-PU treatment to deliver reliable and long-lasting rain protection. Floor fabric is 20D nylon ripstop with PU treatment to 1200mm HH. Poles are high-quality DAC Featherlite NSL.
Slingfin's versatile design means the poles, WebTruss, and fly are compatible with the CrossBow R/S Four-Season body (available separately). The R/S Four-Season body adapts your Crossbow for extended use during the winter months. For added protection, we recommenda Crossbow Footprint (available separately) to boost protection to your tent's floor. The tub footprint (sold separately) lets you pitch the Crossbow without an inner canopy in bug-free conditions for an even lighter 2-season shelter. When added to the Crossbow 2 Mesh, these products combine to turn your CrossBow into a one tent quiver.
The Crossbow 2 Mesh tent combines a spacious interior and low pack-weight with a highly-stable design and premium fabrics to deliver a capable tree-line tent that's perfect for a range of 3-season adventures from wild camping and trekking to and fast and light alpine climbing and more!
