NORTENT Koie 7 Person 4 Season Tent
NORTENT Koie 7 is a very stable and solid tent. A large "home" for as many as 7 people and contains 3 entrances. When using an inner tent 4 people with room for all the gear. Koie 7 is designed to accommodate a "large" number of people, but still withstand a lot of weather. We have equipped Koie 7 with as many as 11 guylines in addition to 22 fasteners for stakes that encloses the tent. This gives a very solid and "fixed" tent that does not care that much when the wind increases.
You simply avoid a lot of the flickering in the tent fabric you often experience with other tents as the 33 attachment stabilizes the fabric in such a way that the fabric itself is somewhat steady, stable and fixed. The word "Koie" comes from an old Norwegian housing that was set up to provide shelter and protection for workers in the forest throughout the winter season.
The flysheet is of course 100% waterproof. But like every other quality tent with this type of fabric, the seams have to be lubricated with a special mix of silicon to become fully waterproof. But a sealed tent isn’t a perfect tent. It has to have good ventilation as well. The circulation of air inside the tent is essential. Without circulation, you will experience condensation on the inside of the outer tent. Ventilation is a key factor to avoid condensation. This is why Koie 76 is equipped with 3 vents. 2 in the top of the tent where moist air is able to escape out of the tent, and 1 large air vents further down the tent for suction of air into the tent while providing plenty of oxygen if using a stove. All exposed areas on the outer fabric are reinforced with Dyneema fabric. Dyneema is considered the worlds strongest fabric. It is therefore perfectly appropriate that we have added this fabric to our tents.
We have equiipped Koie 7 with 3 entrances. 1 on each side and a main, big entrance. The main entrance can also be used as a tarp over the entrance area leading into the tent in such a way that that the "residential area" is expanded outside the tent. By setting the main door as a tarp, you will also invite nature into the "living room" where you are able to stay inside the tent, but at the same time enjoy the outside. Together with an optional stove, you may achieve some very exiting configurations with the tent.
Koie 7 is designed with a stove in mind. Being able to feel warm, pleasant and comfortable in a tent is something we believe lifts the whole outdoor experience to new levels. While the weather rages outside with icy winds and rain, you could enjoy a comfort inside the tent with 20-30 degrees Celcius. The location of the stove in Koie 7 is placed in the center of the tent where you may easily enjoy heat from both sides of the tent. If you choose to use an inner tent in Koie 7 (optional), the stove can easily be operated from both inner tents.
Koie 7 enables 2 optional inner tents on each half of the tent. This makes Koie 7 a very flexible tent where you can choose to use one, two, or no inner tent. Depending on your needs and adventure. When using 2 inner tents, you actually have two tents inside where you have the opportunity to divide the tent into two bedrooms. Two persons making camp could choose to use one inner tent, and have a large common space for eating and storing gear, or 2 inner tents where each person sleep in their own "bedroom". The stove can be used with all configurations. For cold days you can seal the doors in the inner tent completely (If you have an inner tent) For hot days you can open them, but still and at the same time have mosquito nets that protect against insects.. In addition, there are mosquito nets in all three entrances of the outer tent.

Koie 7 enables two inner tents on each half of the tent. This makes Koie 7 a very flexible tent where you can choose to use one, two, or no inner tent. Depending on needs. When using two inner tents, you actually have two tents inside the Koie where you have the opportunity to divide the tent into two bedrooms. If, for example, you are two persons on a trip, you may choose to use only one inner tent, and have a large "living room", or two inner tents where you can sleep in peace in your own "bedroom". An optional stove can be used with all configurations. For cold days, you can seal the doors in the inner tent completely. For hot days you can open them, but still and at the same time have mosquito nets that protect against insects. The indoor tent also makes it possible to regulate the indoor climate in such a way that it becomes more pleasant.
We love the outdoors and appreciate to be able to bring all our gear on our trips. We have designed the inner tent to present a large storage space for backpacks, clothes, shoes, etc. where there is room to dry wet clothes from the heat of the wood stove. In addition there is a small storage room for wet shoes, etc. on the back of the inner tent, but still protected from the weather outside. With its v-shape, the inner tent almost embraces a warm stove.
The inner tent has two entances. One In front where the whole side of the inner tent can be rolled to the side. And a smaller opening at the back.The inner tent is made of Ripstop Nylon which is both breathable, super light and strong.
