A heads-up for DE Maritime’s new tent. It has been designed for conditions in New Zealand and Australia. The name is ‘Magellan’.
The fly fabric is extremely waterproof 30D 280T Ripstop Nylon, coated silicone on one side, PU the other, pressure tested to 70+kPa waterproofness (the testing equipment maxed out at 70kPa with zero leakage (normally tents leak between 15 and 20kPa) and seam sealed. The Pantone colour is 15-5519TPX Turquoise. The inner is 68gsm 190T water-resistant breathable polyester, the mesh is no-see-um. The inner and fly can be erected together, or fly-only. The poles are red DAC Featherlite NSL and the guy lines are 1mm Spectra. YKK zips, gear loft, pockets, extra reinforcing, small stitching, and a light hook.
They normally ship with aluminium pegs, but they do have a very good source for a range of titanium pegs – They say there didn’t seem much point in saving a few grams of weight when the fly fabric wasn’t light, but they do have that option available. Spare patches of all fabrics included.
Bath-tub style floor, dimensions: 2300 x 1400 x 150mm with reinforced corners. Large, overhanging twin vestibules you can cook in, storm skirts on all the vents, and the vents can be closed down.
Please find attached some images of their tent (style name: ‘Magellan’). They show the tent itself, details of the storm vents (there are 4, 1 for each vent), the fly tensioners (again, 4), and one of the interior showing the gear loft and light hook.
