NORTENT Vern 1 Person 4 Season Backpacking Tent
NORTENT Vern 1 is an extremely light tent intended for 1 person. Optimal for the longer hikes in mountains and over isolate plains where you really need a reliable shelter against the elements. With its aerodynamic shape and many possibilities for anchoring the tent to the ground, this tent is a true friend which will keep you safe in the different elements. We believe you should not have to fight the elements but rather become one with and thrive in them.
Vern 1 is designed to provide clean and correct lines that blend in with nature. We have placed great emphasis on the tent being able to be set up quickly and easily without obstacles. With a little practice you should be able to set up the tent in 2-3 minutes where you can then crawl into a warm and safe sleeping bag.
All exposed areas on the outer fabric are reinforced with Dyneema. Dyneema is considered the world's strongest fibre. It is therefore entirely appropriate that we use this fabric fibre in these tents.

The flysheet made of silnylon is of course waterproof. But like all quality tents with this type of fabric, the seams should be lubricated with a special mixture of silicone so that the seams are 100% water proof.
However, a dense tent presents a challenge, and that is air circulation. If the air is not circulated, you will experience condensation inside walls of the outer flysheet (not inside the inner tent). Ventilation is therefore absolutely essential to avoid this. Vern 1 is therefore equipped with 4 air valves. Two air valves at the bottom at each end of the tent, where fresh air can find its way in, and one above each of the two entrances where moist air finds its way out.
The two air valves at the top also function as an extra overhang and protection against rain when you leave the entrance open.
Vern 1 has a relatively spacious awning to be a one-man tent where there is plenty of space for a backpack, shoes and other equipment. At the same time, the awning is well adapted for cooking and use of cooking equipment
At the awning you will find a spacious inner tent with plenty of space for one person where the inner tent easily accommodates a 190x60 cm sleeping pad in addition to gear and clothes.
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 net covering the entrances against insects.
We have equipped the inner tent with several opportunities for storage. For organising all the small equipment you bring on your trip that too often and mysteriously seem to vanish.
In calm days you can open the whole side of the tent to get "nature" into the tent. On wet and harsh days, you can leave the entrance partially closed, but still be sheltered from the weather and wind. On a good old rainy day, you may like to close the entrance completely. But still, there is of course the possibility to make dinner and food in the awning. Vern 1 is designed for flexible use where you are presented with many different options to let nature into the tent, but at the same time be protected from wind and rain.
Vern 1 is designed for use through four seasons. When the snow falls, or during extreme weather, we recommend the use of the crossing pole that runs over the entire long side of the tent. This pole stiffens the tent and makes it partially free-standing. The pole also makes the tent more robust against snow that often settles on the fabric itself.
