Description

Everest base camp, Scottish Winter, and Icelandic exploration… Whatever your adventure, a strong, spacious, and confidence-inspiring home away from home never goes amiss.

Made with the mountains in mind, Heksa is designed to be rock solid in extreme environments.

Heksa is inner pitch first, with a hexagonal geodesic construction to withstand fierce weather conditions. Colour-coded poles make pitching simple; the three vestibule porches can be pegged out and tensioned or docked onto a Kangri. Snow valances offer reinforcement and extra protection when the weather really sets in... Read more

Heksa offers ample room for storing gear comfortably. In addition to three spacious vestibules, internal hanging tabs and mesh stash pockets help to organise your wares and hang torches or gloves. Multiway zips doors give various zip configurations for ventilation, whilst a snow port lets you collect snow to melt without enduring the elements.

A light and breathable inner creates an airy living space, with mesh/nylon doors giving you the option for added ventilation if you need it. The hardwearing nylon ripstop outer is bartacked at stress points to increase durability, all seams are factory taped.

Why choose DAC poles?

DAC is a South Korean tent pole manufacturer and the world-leader in producing lightweight aluminium alloy tent poles. DAC’s own alloy blend produces a lighter tent pole for the same level of strength as other alloy blends, saving on pack weight without compromising on pole strength or flexibility.

The internal shock cords used by DAC also have a longer life-span and greater resistance to cold weather. DAC is increasing the amounts of recycled materials it uses and has successfully refined a more environmentally process for anodising aluminium.
