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 even snow.
Positively stoked by the epic adventures of our friends in the remote Suru Valley in Ladakh, we went to the drawing boards to create a pad that would be honouring their grit and valour, and help them send their highball projects.
Suru is designed to absorb and dissipate the force smoothly from the most notorious highball falls. The foam is superior, and the materials have been thoughtfully chosen and are more durable and lighter than our Yosemite/ Badami versions, which are the current gold standard!
The kicker is the interconnecting Flap and Strap system that allows for two Suru pads to be carried as a single pad, and function as one single large pad. This feature makes highballing outdoors feel as safe as an indoor gym session. The flaps on each pad could be used to connect two pads by securing to the extendable shoulder straps of the opposite pad, to form a tight and secure joint.
The creative design of the interconnecting flaps forms a Marsupial pouch when the crash pad is folded up, which can also be used to carry shoes and gear. The system also allows you to carry an additional crashpad strapped inside the flap!
