Robens Xtra Lite Tent Collection

Building on the success of its Mythos range, Robens® has added three more two-berth models to its Xtra Lite Collection of ultra lightweight tents – all designed for outdoor enthusiasts who want to travel light and fast, and benefit from the ease and speed of pitching a safe shelter.

Robens Tents Robens’ latest tents comprise the Typhon, Heros and Mercury. The company has also added a lightweight Tarp to provide a quick-to-pitch versatile shelter that is ideal for bivouacking or to provide protection from the sun and rain during the day. Robens has applied its traditional attention to detail to achieve lighter weight without compromising performance.

Market-leading features include the use of environmentally-friendly DAC Featherlite NSL poles, connected swiftly and positively to the outer by Twist Clip hooks (all models except Mercury), DAC Swivel Hubs and Ball Caps (Heros and Mythos).

Weather-beating stability is aided by Robens’ latest Storm Guard System (all models except Mercury), while guyline adjustment is quickly actioned through the use of Clamcleat runners. Guyline Retainers (all models except Mercury) ensure that the lines are tangle free and ready to use at a moment’s notice.


Typhon Typhon (left) delivers stability, durability and comfort for two in a lightweight quality package. Quickly pitched flysheet first or as one, the hooped main pole with reliable Twist Clip hooks and shorter twin end poles, allows plenty of room inside even in bad weather. The durable Ripstop flysheet fabric copes easily with harsh treatment in demanding conditions with the tapered shape shedding the worst that wind and rain can throw at it. Clamcleat runners on the guylines ensure easy fast adjustment of the neat Storm Guard System that provides stability whatever the weather.

The Heros’ flexible poles and tapered ridge offer great living space, stability and easy pitching; the pole is almost vertical at the rear to maintain height. Sleeping two in comfort with easy access via the wide door, Heros features Twist Clip hooks and the Storm Guard System with Clamcleat runners. Positioning of the inner tent connectors to the flysheet for maximum interior space and the tilted front pole for extra stability typify the Robens’ approach to detail. The inner door has mesh at the top for ventilation and the whole door zips down from the top and side to fold away neatly in a pocket. Lightweight fabrics and components deliver protection, durability and reliability.

The Mercury (right) is a tipi-style performance tent that has the option of using walking poles as supports for the main tent and the sheltered porch extension with side panels. With a central anodised pole (supplied; a walking pole can be used to trim weight further), four short attached corner poles to increase useable space, and reflective guylines with Clamcleat runners, pitching and adjustment is fast and easy. The zipped door can be raised to create a porch - ideal for cooking sheltered from the rain. The inner attaches to the fly at the guyline points to maximise internal space and the top of the inner door is insect mesh to aid ventilation through the apex vents. It can be pitched flysheet first or as one and the flysheet can be used as a group shelter.

The Tarp’s: HydroTex XTL fabric offers versatile light shelter that can be used with Robens telescopic poles, walking poles or in a wide variety of ways limited only by imagination – as a front or side tent extension or on its own as an ultralight shelter. Light durable guylines are attached to strong webbing loop hangers along the straight sides, reinforced to take punishment in the most trying conditions.
