Vaude's Invenio tents are large backpacking tents with features that make them very easy to live with. Higher denier materials and thicker poles distinguish the Invenio tents from the absolute lightest options, the higher denier fabrics used add durability and lifespan to the tent when compared to lighter models.
Panorama included! Extremely lightweight and wind-stable 3-season tent for weight-watching trekkers, very quick and easy set up thanks to the inner-first construction. The pole arrangement in this 3-person tent creates a cubical interior with a variety of places with comfortable sitting height.
A panoramic entrance on each side can be opened wide, allowing for an unobstructed view of your surroundings. Other benefits include the opportunity to sleep cross-wise and easy access to your gear. Both vestibules offer enough space for gear and are well-suited for cooking. Two fully adjustable vents ensure a pleasant microclimate when the entrances are closed. In warm, dry regions the inner tent can be used on its own – starry sky included!
Vaude's Invenio SUL 3P Tent is a nice big tent with near vertical walls and a strong pole structure to withstand gusty conditions. Its a bit heavier than some but easily carried by two or three people and the extra weight comes from the higher 'denier' fabrics that have been used throughout the tent and thicker, stronger poles. Higher 'denier' fabrics will last longer than lower ones so this tent is likely to outlast the very lightest models.
The inner tent has large mesh panels which are on the upper surfaces of the inner tent - this will allow plenty of ventilation in hot environments but the fabric panels also provide good protection from wind and a degree of warmth when it gets colder - its a good mix of mesh and fabric.
At 230cm the inner tent length is good and the inner height is among the best in this category, access into and out of the tent is also easy.
