Probably the lightest tent in the world
– but definetely the smallest when packed

With a packsize of 11x22 cm Lofoten is the
smallest tent in the world when packed – and
with its 490 grams (race weight) probably the
lightest double wall one-man tent too...

Honouring the Danish design virtues of
functionality and simplicity Lofoten is a
revolutionary new innovative piece of gear
offering maximum performance at a very low
weight and size. Through the use of ultimate
components the bar is raised and new
standards set.

The foundation is the ultra light yet very
strong latest generation aluminium poles
designed with ultra short segments reducing
the packsize to a minimum.

The new 7D nylon created by Nordisk weighs
only 26 g/m2 with an extreme threadcount of
580 on which there is added a 3 layer
silicone coating on both sides, ensuring high
flexibility. The hydrostatic head is 1600 mm,
which is enough to keep you dry and ensure a
high ventilation inside. The new patented
Nordisk Flex Line system ensures both high
flexibility, durability and strength at the
same time.

By changing to the two-man inner cabin
Lofoten can transform from a one-man to a
two-man tent – or the opposite.
