A roof attachment allows a walking pole to act as a support to help keep the fabric away from your head.By using our Superlite fabrics and removing any unnecessary extras like windows and pole `sockets` we have reduced both the weight and pack size. Whats more these Superlite models will compress even smaller giving extra pack space for you other kit.
