The SKAVT tent was developed in cooperation with ZSKSS (Slovenian Catholic Girl Guides and Boy Scouts Association) and is based on the “JAMBOREE” and “BROWNSEA” tent models.
This is a traditional scout tent for 8 people. It is equipped with strong pegs, a frame with pins, and has a bottom made of durable PE fabric. The inner tent is made of lightweight breathable PES fabric, making the inside of the tent airy and bright. The outer roof is made of 100% TenCate cotton. Cotton fabric has excellent ventilation and humidity regulation properties, which ensure a pleasant climate in the tent, while the material is resistant to all weather conditions. Due to the double roof, the construction itself represents an additional climatic advantage. The space between the outer roof and the roof of the inner tent offers additional thermal insulation, which makes staying in a tent extremely pleasant. The outer roof increases the usable floor plan of the tent by more than 10 m2. On one side there is a small canopy in front of the tent, which protects the inner tent from the weather (sun, rain…), while on the other the outer roof covers the surface of a larger semicircle, which can be closed completely if necessary. An added benefit of the canopy is that they help cool the inside of the tent. The front door can be completely open, and yet the effects of the sun do not reach the inside of the tent.
Due to cooperation with world-renowned suppliers, many years of experience and tradition, we acknowledge a 5-year warranty.
Instructions for setting up a tent
- Unfold the inner tent and secure the bottom.
- Use Velcro to place the inner tent on the ridge pole of the tent.
- Lift the ridge pole with the inner tent onto the standing poles and tighten the inner tent with ropes with rope tighteners.
- Insert the corner poles with the hooks into the corner pockets and tighten the sides with (180 cm long) ropes.
- Place the outer roof on the frame and tighten it with the enclosed (40 cm long) ropes.
- Use a (350 cm long) rope to tighten the front canopy. Due to the size of the outer roof, we recommend checking the rope tightness every two to three days and tightening them, if necessary.
Dismantling the tent
Disassemble the tent in the reverse order of installation. Remove all the pegs and store them in the accessory packaging.
Tent packing and storage
Pack exclusively completely dry canvas parts. If this is not possible, dry them as soon as you arrive at the storage place.
Tent maintenance and cleaning
Brush the canvas parts and, if necessary, wash them with a jet of water. Use only a softer brush. Spread out the tent and let it dry. Washed the frame and let it dry. Canvas, frame parts, and all accessories should be packed and stored exclusively completely dry. Machine washing, dry-cleaning, or bleaching of canvas parts is not allowed. Ironing or tumble drying them is also not allowed.
Tears and other damage to the outer canvas should be repaired by the manufacturer.
Use of insect repellents
The canvas of the tent is factory impregnated. Impregnation prevents water from passing through the canvas. Spraying insect repellent over the surface of the canvas will damage the impregnation, therefore you can expect water seepage in the area where the agent was applied. Subsequent impregnation of the canvas with impregnating agents will not be deep. Consequently, the impregnation will not be permanent. It will be necessary to replace the canvas or sew a new canvas. We suggest you apply insect repellents to yourself outside the tent to prevent damaging the canvas.
