The Technical Cotton tents from Nordisk offer a luxurious camping experience and awesome aesthetic appeal.
Asgard 7.1 is a classic bell tent in size small – but with full scale atmosphere. A great tent for 2-3 persons sleeping as it is very easy to pitch due to the center pole construction.
The framed door keeps the large opening in place – and the vertical sides offer full utililisation of the ground area which has an integrated groundsheet. In spite of its relative small size it also offers ground level windows equipped with mosquito net which can be opened for better view and ventilation. Also the front door has a built in mosquito net. Asgard 7.1 can be upgraded with a tailored cabin. A tent that really stands out.
Nordisk's Cotton range has traditional styling with modern, technical elements. The ‘Technical Cotton’ fabric used in the tents that we stock is actually 65% Polyester and 35% cotton, this makes the fabric have a lower weight and more durability than if it were 100% cotton, due to the strength of man-made polyester yarn.
The fabric doesn’t have a coating on it like modern tent fabrics, but it is still water repellent. When cotton gets wet it expands, sealing itself and becoming rainproof. The hydrostatic head result for these fabrics is quoted at 350mm, this is fairly low in comparison to nylon tent fabrics, but the properties of the cotton still make these tents able to withstand heavy and persistent rain.
These are really impressive structures when set-up and you can really make them homely for long family holidays.
