Combining an ultralight design with an exceptional strength-to-weight ratio, the Slingfin Windsaber tent redefines what's possible for a lightweight mountaineering shelter.
Featuring Slingfin's patented WebTruss and OutRigger attachment, the Windsaber is optimised to handle extreme weather. Unique to Slingfin, the WebTruss lets you pitch 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 effectively gives you the ease of a clip system with the strength of a sleeve system to hold the pole structure in tension for a greater strength-for-weight than traditional clip-style tents. WebTruss Technology includes the new clip system which allows the tent to be set up with or without the WebTruss depending on your preference.
A brow pole in the roof adds extra stability and steepens the wall angle for optimum internal space. The innovative OutRigger design also lets you attach trekking poles as additional uprights for further stability against harsh winds or snow-loading.
The freestanding semi-geodesic design is quick to pitch with room enough for two people with sleeping pads and kit. The interior is shaped to maximize usable space with multiple pockets for storage. O-rings provide internal guyline compatibility, letting you tension the tent without venturing outside in poor weather.
The WindSaber’s tunnel entrance provides egress should your zippers freeze and doubles as a storage area. It provides quick access to your gear without compromising floor space or having to open your tent to the elements. A traditional zip mesh/ripstop double door on the other side provides quick access and won’t get caked with spindrift.
A drawstring vent at the foot of the tent features a mesh layer that lets in airflow while keeping out bugs. Crack open the top of the door to create a cross breeze that keeps condensation to a minimum.
Slingfin uses only the finest grade fabrics and materials in their shelters. A lightweight 30D nylon 66 ripstop flysheet and floor optimises pack-weight without compromising on strength. A silicone treatment - front and back - delivers reliable and long-lasting moisture protection. A 15D nylon ripstop for the inner canopy features additional DWR. Poles are high-quality DAC Featherlite NSL.
The Windsaber tent from Slingfin combines a spacious interior and low pack-weight with structural integrity and premium fabrics to deliver a capable alpine tent that's perfect for 2 person backcountry ski tours, high-altitude expeditions and mountaineering trips.
