Description

The Frejus is a classic A-frame tent, solid as a rock and perfect for long camping trips in the height of summer. The GOTS-certified organic cotton canvas keeps the inside cool and airy in hot weather. And it's built to last with durable materials and construction throughout – the flysheet lasts up to 4x longer than standard tent fabrics. Spacious, light and comfortable – camping doesn't get much better.

Cool and Airy Natural Canvas

Waterproof polycotton canvas has some real technical advantages over modern tent fabrics. Organic cotton is highly breathable, preventing condensation and allowing fresh air to circulate. Cotton fibres are naturally insulating too, keeping your tent cool in the heat and warm in the cold.

Built To Last

We've used durable materials and construction techniques throughout for years of camping. The canvas flysheet and 400D Oxford PU floor are super hardwearing. We've used steel for the poles and oversized pegs. And polycotton canvas is highly UV resistant, lasting up to 4x longer than polyester or nylon flysheets.

Designed to Put Up and Stay Up

The classic A-frame structure is incredibly stable in strong winds and creates loads of internal space. And, because it's much more UV resistant, you can put it up and leave it up on summer camping holidays without worrying about the flysheet catching too much sun.

Sustainability & Care

Product Care Information

Before Use
Canvas tents always need ‘weathering in’ before their first use or after a prolonged period of storage. This process seals up any spaces in the canvas weave or the stitching and ensures that your tent is completely waterproof. All you have to do is pitch your tent outside in wet weather or give it a thorough soaking with a hose, allowing the tent to dry fully before packing it away.

Looking After Your Tent
Polycotton canvas is susceptible to mildew if it's not allowed to completely dry out. You must always ensure that your tent is completely dry before packing it away for a prolonged period of time. We use polycotton canvas in our Roundhouse which is faster drying and more resistant to mildew, but still requires the same care.

Sustainability

Organic Cotton
The Frejus uses 100% organic cotton. Organic cotton farming produces significantly less CO₂, uses less water and eliminates the use of harmful pesticides. And it feels great to camp under!

Gear You'll Love For Longer
We've chosen materials and construction techniques to increase your tent's lifespan and ensures that it will last for years. We've used UV-resistant polycotton canvas, durable 400D Oxford PU for the floor and steel poles and pegs.

FSC Wood
All wooden toggles and fitments use FSC-certified materials.

Trek & Mountain reviews Frejus

The Frejus is a strong and comfortable tent that's ideal for using as a base at campsites, and is especially 8000 in not weather.

As well as the breathability the canvas gives you, the ventilation in the is excellent, with mesh doors and a rear vent, and a raised skirt all the way round that allows air to freely circulate - ideal for hot summer nights.

Overall we really enjoyed using the Frejus, not least because it reminded us of days gone by, but also because it's just so comfortable and practical.
