Adjustable Tarp Pole 163XAdjustable Tarp Pole 163X


The V4A is now available in Green or Desert.

You can now buy the Hex Peak V4a fly only and V4a inner only as two individual items. A bucket footprint is now available as an optional extra.

Michael the designer and owner is always keen to hear feedback and wants to keep developing his products to offer the best value he can. As such he took on board our comments and desire for it to be slightly bigger to suit taller and so the dimensions have been increased as follows;

  • Total shelter height 2cm taller
  • The inner is 8cm longer, 5cm deeper at the widest point and 3cm deeper at the narrowest point
  • The weight penalty is minor as the previous outer was 620g and the inner 495g

The whole tent has been given a review and any areas of potential weakness have been reinforced and made more durable for the wide ranging weather conditions Europe can throw at it.

All in all we expect this tent to be another massive seller this year. A full review video will follow as soon as the first shipment has arrived.

Optional extra: For those people who love this shelter and would like more space inside for two people. There is a double V4 inner which will fit this shelter and allows for a small vestibule.

Initial pitch thoughts: The first difference I notice is that the guys are much longer than before, allowing for much greater height and ventilation for different conditions. The inner guys are also very long, which mean they too can be hooked over the pegs used on the outer. To prevent the 'upstands' on the inner from slipping to fall in line with the nest, it is best to tie a small overhand loop to lock it in place, which means when the guy is pulled the 'upstand' will stay erect and create maximum space in the inner. Every panel has a slider sewn in halfway across the base, so that additional guys can be  added very easily, which is nice touch. The pegs supplied are the extra long versions. It certainly makes the whole internal space much more roomy for users around 6 foot tall. The double ended J-Zip is excellent for ventilation and the top vent has good additional rain protection coverage, to prevent the weather being driven up the door and through the mesh.
  • Flysheet 40D/230T Nylon ripstop fabric with one side PU and one side siliconized
  • Inner tent: High density nylon mesh
  • Inner floor: 68D nylon taffeta PU.  4000mm water column
  • Pole: Not included
  • Guy ropes: 11 lines included
  • Stake: 18cm Alloy Y-Stake x6 (For minimum setting)
  • Silicone seam glue included
  • Hydrostatic Head: 2500mm
  • Weight:               
    • V4 Out fly: Approx 660g
    • V4 Inner: Approx 600g
    • 6x Stakes: 84g

Please note that the ideal pole for this shelter is the Luxe 163X pole.

Seam sealing the tent

As the silicone tents are designed without seam taping, we recommend user to apply seam sealing on the outside seam of flysheet where necessary (Mainly around the crown area). Along the horizontal stitching around the vent. Down the zip and 'inside' the guy loops and top loop. (Pull apart with your fingers) Anywhere water can gather is a potential point of issue if the tent will be subjected to prolonged rainfall or a persistently wet environment.

Further updates: The Hex Peak series has been expanded as follows and the V4 inner supplied with this shelter will also fit the larger F6 model and the much larger Octapeak model. In fact 2 x F4 inners will sit inside the Octapeak and still leave room for cooking.

Unfinished Business
Monday, 19 February 2018  | 

I am more than pleased with the outer, it pitches in minutes and is very stable but the inner feels unfinished. I assume the inner is designed to fit other shelters as there is a lot of adjustment required to get it to fit and it seems necessary to carry out mods yourself to get it to pitch properly. I would have thought with all the feedback online Luxe could amend the design to suit themselves.

From your comments my gut feeling is that you haven't pitched the tent high enough to allow the inner to be pulled taught. Thus it might be sagging and not looking neat. With a 6 inch air gap around the perimeter you should find the inner either clips onto the 'O' rings, or the guys loop over the pegs. Some people peg the inner independently which allows for maximum tension. The inner is designed to fit the shelter specifically, however as you mention, it will also fit a variety of other products on the market.

Good size to weight ratio

I haven't had chance to use this shelter on the trail yet but I've had it up at home and it seems like a great product. Lots of space considering its weight and pack size.

Hex peak v4a.
Thursday, 28 December 2017  | 

First off I ordered the tent late Sunday night and it arrived Tuesday, exelent service from Bob and staff at back packing light .
I have only set up and tested the tent in the garden as yet, I had read and watched vids on YouTube , I've been looking at this tent for 12 months but bought a cheaper tent instead.
Save your money and if you are looking at this tent buy it , the tent is everything I was looking for, lightweight, plenty of room for a 5-6 person with ample space for gear or a dog or even 2 people at a squeeze with the bigger inner nest inserted.
Will give an update when I've properly tested out in the field .
First impressions love it .
Ps I bought the pole as well that goes with it and that is also a great piece of kit to match the tent, i put a 2 marks on the pole measured out to the recommended height to set the pole night .

Good versatile tent that can withstand punishment
Wednesday, 6 December 2017  | 

I have owned this tent for around a year now, and it has mostly been used at height in the lake district.

When first getting the tent, it can be a bit of a faff to get a gap between the nest and fly. But with a bit of practice it goes up relatively quickly.

I have recently used this tent camping at red tarn near helvellyn. The winds reached up to 50 mph gusts and battered our tents ALL NIGHT!!!
The other 2 people I went with tents were completely trashed by morning, and ready for the bin. Both were complaining of an awful night.

The hexpeak stood strong and became a place for shelter for the other two, between trying to bodge their tents.

Although not a criticism, but something to be aware of.
When pinning the stakes down with rocks, dyneema although super strong does not have good abrasion resistance. so the constant rubbing caused a couple of guys to fray, and one to completely snap 10 mins before packing up.
But I already have plenty spare and know better for next time.

Seam sealing the tent is also very time consuming, and can look like a dogs dinner if not used sparingly. I have only done the very top section above the door as a precaution, but have have no problems with leaks.

Very happy with this tent and have no problems recommending it.

Hexpeak V4A
Friday, 15 September 2017  | 

Not a review so disregard the starrating, but some feedback as requested. It's probably a lovely tent (haven't had the chance to use it yet). It also turned out 150 grams heavier than advertised. I guess for well under 200 pounds one can't complain too much about the lack of qualitycontroll in this regard, but for a weightconcious backpacker those 12% extra are a bit of a bummer. Imagine your entire gear selection being 12% heavier, who would like that after shaving it off?

Other than that the materials feel like they will stand a lot of punishment on open windy fields, which is why I chose this tent over the ultralight tents that weigh half as much.

In all fairness every time an item is manufacturered there can be slight differences in the final product and so the original measurements sometimes change slightly as improvements are made over time (more attachment points, better fittings etc) Sometime manufacturers let us know, other times they don't.

Also do be aware that domestic non-calibrated scales can also vary by 10% too which can often confuse the issue.

Sealing this tent took a while but is well worth the effort. I thought it might look a bit shabby as I am no pro with a paint brush although it looks very good once applied. The tarp itself is brilliant. Low weight, low pack size, good waterproofing and easy to pitch. It obviously takes a little practice at first but once mastered you will never need another shelter for any use within the UK/Alps/Boreal Forest or similar. Love it and would recommend over a trailstar any day. Service and delivery, excellent.

Great Tent
Tuesday, 18 July 2017  | 

I bought this two years ago but haven't reviewed it until now because I wanted to use it properly first. I can now say with confidence that this tent represents the best performance/price value I've ever had in a tent. My respect for it grows with each period of use.

A few caveats:

If, like me, your previous experience is limited to 'ordinary' tents, then I respectfully suggest you practice setup several times in friendly conditions before taking it into the wild, because a certain level of camp craft is called for (I learned this the hard way). Tarp enthusiasts will, I suspect, have no such difficulties.

It is important to utilise the relevant extra guying points in strong winds. Take enough pegs and cordage!

Adapt the tent to your personal requirements, using Bob's suggestions and other ideas to suit you, as the basic design is one which lends itself to modification.

When insect conditions permit, drop the inner (just one hook) and revel in the acres of weatherproof space, which at this price point, and 1.4kg total carried weight (assuming you're a trekking pole user) is as unbeatable as it gets in my book.
