The Technical Cotton tents from Nordisk offer a luxurious camping experience and awesome aesthetic appeal.
Asgard 19.6 is the largest of the Asgard models with a ground area close to 20 sqm. Still it is very easy to pitch due to the single center pole construction – and it offers plenty of room for up to 10 persons sleeping.
The highly pleasant cotton fabric combined with the various ventilation possibilities makes staying inside this tent a nice and pleasant experience – not least due to the mosquito net in both front door and the many ground level windows. Asgard can be even more luxurious by adding a tailored zip-in groundsheet, tailored cabins and a high wall offering plenty of headroom. A great tent when you want to stand 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.
