About Tatonka Tents
Tatonka’s packs and outdoor products have become a favourite amongst New Zealand hunters and Tatonka’s tents are designed with the same focus on providing tough, high tech and high quality products at reasonable prices.
All Tatonka tents are fast pitching due to a “multi-pitch” setup, where the inner tent is attached to the fly sheet making it faster to pitch and take down, which is particuarly useful in bad weather. If required, the inner tent and flysheet can be separated and the flysheet and poles can be pitched to make a lightweight Bivvy. If the tent has been left up in the rain and you wish to break camp, its possible to remove the inner tent first (keeping it dry) before taking down the fly and poles.
We have also had great feedback that compared to many competing tents, Tatonka’s interior mesh vents means that any condensation flows away from your gear, keeping it dry.
The Expert tents are made from materials that are particularly tear-resistant, strong, extremely durable and ultra lightweight. This range is recommended for people who hunt and tramp often. Perfect for alpine conditions as the tents can handle the extreme weather conditions that may be encountered.
The tent floor is made of a tough 70 denier nylon, so it can withstand rough terrains. Flys are made of waterproof Nylon 6 with five coats of silicone. Poles are all made of scandium (20% stronger, 30% lighter than aluminium).
SPECIAL SEAM PROCESSING
All main seams on Tatonka tents are constructed as double fell seams.
FLAT POLE CHANNELS
The pole channels of Tatonka tents are flat, double-stitched and sealed. They offer less surface to the wind and allow for direct transfer of the pole tension to the outer tent.
The vents on the long sides of the outer tents are waterproof and can be set up easily even after long periods of use with the help of a stiff fabric strap.
REINFORCED SIDE ENTRANCES
The side entrances of the tents are reinforced and equipped with a distance webbing. This makes it easy to brace the entrances to the correct width.
ZIPPERS WITH COVER
The zippers of the outer tents feature an additional sewn-on cover for protection against dust and rain, the seams are sealed.
MOSQUITO NET AT THE ENTRANCES
Side entrances to the vestibules can be closed separately with a mosquito net.
REFLECTIVE TENT LINES
Reflective tent lines ensure good visibility in the dark meaning lines don’t become tripping hazards.
CLOSABLE MOSQUITO WINDOWS
Separately closable mosquito windows in the inner tent provide good ventilation in warm weather.
CLOTHESLINES IN THE INNER TENT
Practical, adjustable clotheslines in the inner tent help keep things tidy.
