The latest incarnation in the Luxe lightweight series of teepee style tents which offer numerous options in configuration for more than one person.

There are so many options with this shelter that the forthcoming video will hopefully explain just how flexible it is.

However out of the box, we have the shelter and the inner which will easily sleep 4 adults over 6 foot.

There are two doors and vestibules which will help with air flow and storage. Certainly big enough for rucksacks and kit storage.

The floor space is huge and there is certainly room to move about when sheltering away form the weather.

As a shelter only tarp tent, you could almost hold a party in there. Ideal for families, small groups, kayaking, bushcraft and so on.

As the photos show. You can actually fit one or two V4 Hexpeak Inners inside too. Which then would give you more variety and space of course depending on your needs.

The packed size is good too. Certainly ideal for motor cycle tourers and possibly a group of cyclists sharing.

It comes with 15 long pegs. 8 for the base of the shelter which leaves 7 for the additional adjusters in the centre of each panel. Or you could use them for the guying out points half way up the sides. However the additional 3mm cord needed is not supplied so that is something to take into account. I would suggest a 30m pack.

The only other consideration is the pole required. I have tried it with 2 walking poles linked together and this works fine, strong and stable.

All in all I think this offers users a fantastic super stable shelter for a whole variety of uses. It is supplied with seam sealer and instructions as to where to apply it, if needed.

One additional comment would be to purchase an additional storage bag to split the inner and the outer. The fit of the main back is too tight to make life easy.

For Cycle Camping
Friday, 30 June 2017  | 

I recently used this for the first time at the York Cycle Rally and found it to be ideal. With the V4 inner I could sleep and store my panniers within the inner. For security I could also fit my bike in the tent, simultaneously using a chair. Two bikes were stolen at the rally so keeping the bike in the tent is more of a deterrent than laying it on the floor at the side of a small tent. The weights are good for such a spacious option. I would recommend this set up highly for cycle camping.
