Adjustable Tarp Pole 163XAdjustable Tarp Pole 163X

The very popular Hex Peak range which was introduced into the UK in 2014 has now been increased to include this larger double shelter, the F6.

(There are currently two models in the range the V4 solo Hex Peak which has an optional double F4 nest)

This model the F6 is a much larger version of the same shape and is supplied with a larger double nest as standard. Therefore making it more comfortable for couples or a small family. It is shipped with the double nest as standard.

It is another 23cm taller than the V4 Hex Peak and the floor space is considerably larger with a maximum width of 260cm by 195cm. This still leaves a vestibule area almost 100cm in depth.

Can can safely say that it is a large roomy shelter suitable for users up to 6'3" with comfort. You may find it worth adding some extra pegs to those provided, as it will give you more pitching options, as the inner can loop 'over' the pegs set for the outer, or they can be adjusted to suit ground conditions.

The V4 solo inner nest can be purchased as an optional extra which results in a much larger vestibule area for the solo hiker or cyclist. There is enough space in the vestibule to store a bike. (See photos)

All in all we expect this tent to be another massive seller this year. A full review video will follow as soon as we can.

Pole Option

Your have a choice of 2 poles which will support the F6 model. The 163X or the 197X. The only difference between the two is the 197 will extend to a much greater height and is made up of an extra section which makes it heavier.

Seam sealing the tent

As the silicone tents are designed without seam taping, we recommend user to apply seam sealing on inside seam of flysheet and certain points on inner tent corner in order to obtain better rain proofing if the tent will be subjected to prolonged rainfall or a persistently wet environment. Please click here for the seam sealing guide.

Great advice and excellent service.
At 6'5" at last a backpacking tent I don't have to fold myself into. Stacks of space for kit too.

Impressive, and spacious
Saturday, 16 July 2016  | 

Firstly, great service from BPL, the advice prior to purchase was first class; as Iím a shade over 6'2" I went for this over the V4 as recommended by Rose.
I've not used this tent in anger as yet as it only arrived earlier in the week, however my initial impression is very good.
I've erected it as supplied, inner first which (as described in Bob's Youtube video) doesn't work with 6 pegs and I found a little tricky to get even. That said, once I did get the pitch to my satisfaction (no more than about 15 minutes all in, including undoing the knots I created in the guy lines) it is absolutely huge; easily enough room for 2 adults and kit. The only downside to such a large inner is it does eat up a fair chunk of vestibule space. The inner itself is well made and the little plastic upstands in the groundsheet corners are an excellent addition; Iím not so keen on erecting the inner first though but thatís the price you pay for having a 2 person inner in what is still a relatively compact tent.
Iíve since popped it up as a fly only and it was literally minutes between opening the bag and having a usable shelter to get out of our great British weather. As a bikebacking ďtarpĒ this would be superb; Iím reasonably confident I could get my bike in behind the pole then sleep in a bivvy nearer the door with no problems.
The only improvement to this I could possibly suggest to Luxe would be to offer the regular V6 fly with a 1 man inner which would be usable for those 6í2Ē and over without ending up with mesh in your face.

Very pleased

This was my first order with backpackinglight and the whole process was easy and went smoothly as you would expect, now on to the tent. Being rather tall at 6'5" I opted for the larger F6 model of the Hexpeak and this tent seems perfect for me, plenty of room. I have only pitched it once in the garden so not really a valid test of its capabilities, but I am impressed by the quality and I like this 'lavvu' sort of design. I give it a big thumbs up!

Ideal compromise???
Wednesday, 17 June 2015  | 

I have other hex and 'mid tents and tarps for solo summer trips, winter even with sleeping bag of suitable rating. It all starts to get a little silly though when trying to go super-lightweight - other kit to prevent unnecessary suffering knocks the weight back up again! But lightweight is a great concept and it works, mostly. What all the experimenting has taught me is this - that if we can get the weight down to near ultralight spec, then perhaps a 'backward' step would be to raise the weight to something like 'old-new' standards for luxurious space-for-weight. This Hex 6 (why this number?) could sleep 2 adults and 2 children, or a third adult, dog or whatever. The fact is that this is a fabulously spacious abode for 2 for the same weight as, say, a Nallo 2. When you take other things into consideration like a pole (I wouldn't use 2 trekking poles as I feel you really need something a bit butch-er, but that's only my take), and perhaps a season's rating upward for your sleeping bag (the midgie netting upper to the inner and bigger volume will never be as cozy come winter) and you will be carrying 20lbs base weight summer, 23 or 24 in winter, and have amazing accomodation, worth the extra weight in my - increasingly arthritic and crumbly - opinion. There's no 'awning' as such and water-free entry and exit needs some care (an ultralight tarp and your walking poles would work a treat, but there goes the weight upward again) but I LOVE this tentT You'll need a few extra pegs and some guys to make it bomb-proof, and short lengths of cord for the tie-down points mid-way along the edges, and the pegs supplied are a good length and weight if a little fragile, one bent already which will snap if I try to straighten it, cheap alloy, but this is what you get for this little money, plus you get to customise your tent to your heart's delight. If you want a Nallo-weight tent that will probably stand the weather just as well but with tons of space - you can kneel up, even stand if you're not a 6-footer, and really spread out - buy this beauty. No doubt wear and weather-proof-ness over time could be an issue; only time will tell, and I intend to give this tent a good time! Yogabob.

Great lightweight family shelter
Monday, 20 April 2015  | 

Pitched easily and taut with the 6 pegs supplied. Bit flappy on a blustery night so would probably benefit from using the 6 additional peg out points, but still secure without.
Snug but comfortable fit for the whole family for lightweight overnight adventures. Fitted 1x6ft, 1x5ft3, 5yo & 3yo. Will probably be ok till the kids are 10 & 8.
Not tried in the rain yet but seam sealer supplied so no reson to expect drips if used correctly.
