Cross-Pole Design

The Polestar’s cross-pole design provides a really stable structure to the tent, and the tent has been engineered to ensure that the poles won’t flex, even in strong winds. We’ve designed it to be compatible with any brand of adjustable trekking poles or fixed length 120cm poles.

Sub 1KG, 3 Season Shelter

There are only 8 pegs to accommodate and a short collapsible pole which props up the footbox to maximise space and minimise weight. The tough 20D rip-stop fly sheet fabric allows Polestar to last longer and survive in worse conditions.

Spacious Living

Polestar's 2-layer design is far more comfortable for sleeping in than a simple tarp tent. It's great for condensation management, and provides a comfortable internal living space, separate from your dirty kit, that feels like you’re sleeping in an actual shelter – as well as having a sealed groundsheet that keeps you away from wet ground.
