KYRA 2

ULTRALIGHT TENT

DESIGNED FOR ALPINISTS

TESTED IN HIMALAYAS

  • Four Seasons, three person, Tunnel type tent with extra large vestibule and generous ventilation.

    Norra Plus series is designed for 4 seasons use. The Plus series of Norra features very large vestibule (almost as big as the inner tent) keeping but at the same time using ultra light materials to achieve the lightest weight possible. The textiles, accessories and poles were chosen keeping weight in mind.

    The interiors of this tent are expansive and airy. The tent is built to withstand heavy downpours of rain and even snow.  This Norra tents are perfect for use in base camps and by alpinists who need extra large vestibules.

     

     

  • Fira series of tents are designed for 3-season usage. If you are looking for a high-quality light-weight tent with self-contained stability and 3-season weather-proofness, this is your tent.

    The LITE version builds on the proven design of the Fira series, and offers lighter materials to ensure savings in weight for backpacking trips. It also provides a fully breathable Nylon inner tent as opposed to the inner of regular Fira tent with a lot of mesh.

    The trail weight of tent is 2.05 kg. We understand that this is not the lightest tent for the given floor area but this is largely because we prefer to use 70D Rip Stop Nylon for the tent’s ground sheet. We could also choose to use 20D Nylon for ground sheet and lose another 300 grams but that would require the buyer to always buy and carry a Footprint with the tent to avoid abrasion and we feel it is not always ideal. With Gipfel Fira tent you never have to buy a footprint. Just our ground sheet is enough!

    The interiors of this tent are ample for two persons. The tent is built to withstand heavy downpours of rain and even snow. It features patented Jake’s foot attachments and our ring tensioners.

     

     

  • Four Seasons, Four-person, Tunnel type tent with double vestibules, including one extra large vestibule and a generous ventilation.

    Norra Plus series is designed for all seasons use. The Plus series of Norra features very large vestibule (almost as big as the inner tent) keeping but at the same time using ultra light materials to achieve the lightest weight possible. The textiles, accessories and poles were chosen keeping weight in mind.

    The interiors of this tent are expansive and airy. The tent is built to withstand rain and snow.  This Norra tents are perfect for use in base camps and by alpinists who need extra large vestibules.

     

     

  • Four-season, Three-person, Tunnel type hybrid tents.

    Tethys Tents are our very uniquely designed Hybrid shaped tents. It combines the comfort and lighter weight of a tunnel tent with the stability of a geodesic dome shaped tents.

    Generally, simple Dome tents are easy to setup because they are free standing and do not need guy lines to pitch them but they are not so stable in the wind and the head room is rather limited. Geodesic domes are far more stable than simple domes but they are complex to setup and are heavier. Tunnel tents are lighter in weight, easier to setup and have generous head room but they are not free standing.  If you do not have enough space to extend guy lines, then it can be tricky to pitch them tightly. Additionally, rain water and snow can accumulate on the top of the outer tent between the poles.

    Tethys tent combines the best of both worlds. It is roomy like a tunnel tent but has the free standing nature of a dome tent combined with structural stability of a geodesic dome. The aerodynamic shape and the sloping roofs easily sheds the water, snow and wind.

    The interiors of this tent are expansive and airy. The tent is built to withstand heavy downpours of rain and snow.

TREKS AND ETHICS

OUTDOOR ETHICS

Let’s face it, our urge to get outdoors has ethical dilemma associated with it.   Outdoor recreation has many benefits at a micro level and macro level.  Urban communities when engage with the outdoors and the nature, become more empathetic and become engaged with conservation efforts.  Aside from accruing personal benefits of getting outdoors. 

But as more of us get outdoors, we have begun to create an impact negatively, in fact at a catastrophically macro level.  While we expect peace and tranquillity, the most popular locations have begun to feel like downtown malls with crowds, and the amount of garbage piling up is incredible.  The pollution is not just environmental, but at a cultural level as well.  

We spoke to the conscientious of the folks we look up to, and compiled a list of dos and don’ts for the outdoors to help maintain a balance.  Some of these may sound moralistic.  But gone are the days of saying it softly. 

Be honourable outdoors.
