Illumina X Hiking Tent - Amber (Improved)


Out of Stock

The Illumina X hiking tent in Amber boasts an extreme lightweight construction. Total pack, including poles, is only approximately 1.58kg. This 4 season, 1-2 person hiking tent features a freestanding design – easy to pitch and easy to pack.

The Improved version includes Guy ropes at the side of tents for stronger reinforcements and better airflow.

This 2 person hiking tent has proved to be one of the more exciting lightweight hiking tents in Australia to be introduced, having sold out at lightning speed time and time again. Which is why we brought them back! It's not hard to see why - with all the great features that you'll read about below, it boasts a feather-lightweight construction, & to top it all off, it is being offered at a super affordable price, in line with Novapro Sports commitment to providing excellent value for money for you.

Adding more comfort for your wilderness adventures, the Illumina Amber X lightweight hiking tent maximises floor space and headroom with steep walls and a vertical door. Dry-entry vestibule keeps rain and snow out of the hiking tent as you enter and exit, even when the vestibule of this hiking tent is open. 

Given its ultralight construction, it is great as an ultralight backpacking tent, or hiking, activities where weight is of utmost importance.

Special Features of the Illumina X Hiking Tent

Feature 1: High sides

To block chilly wind out especially when temperatures fall. The hiking tent also blocks out snow fall and rain splatters. 

Feature 2: Self Standing

Ability to stand the hiking tent just by its pole without requiring to peg. This is an amazing feature for high end quality hiking tents especially when time is critical during tent erection (raining or snowing) or when terrains are not suitable for pegging.

Feature 3: Suitable for Snow Conditions

This four season hiking tent is suitable for less severe snow conditions. Perfect for skiers, snowboarders, splitboarders, snowshoers, cyclists and other snow seeking adventurers. The frame of this hiking tent can withstand overnight snow loading although you should avoid using this under harsh snow conditions / snow storms.

Waterproof & Windproof: Silicone-coated ripstop nylon fly and floor feature seams that are fully sealed, giving this hiking tent a high waterproof rating of 8000MM (Fabric PU5000MM + Coating PU3000MM). Storm flap on the vestibule zipper.

UV Protection: This hiking tent offers essential UV protection from the harmful rays of sun. It is constructed of high quality rip stop lightweight fabric coupled with UV sun protection. 

Ultra-Lightweight: The Illumina Amber X hiking tent weighs only approx 1.58kg including the poles. You can save even more weight and create a minimalist shelter by using just the tent fly, footprint, pole, and stakes and only bringing the minimum amount of pegs you need. 

Pest Control Ventilation: The ultralight, breathable ripstop nylon tent body with B3 mesh provides excellent ventilation, while still keeping unwanted bugs and small spiders out of your hiking tent.

Bonus footprint:  A free custom sized footprint is included in your purchase! This is not the average industry standard. If you do your research, most expensive brand tents out there do not offer you footprint with your ultralight tent purchase, and you would have to buy them separately for a price. After receiving feedback from listening to our customers and followers, we have decided to include footprints into every of our tent. And guess what, the footprint's size is custom made to fit your tent! (Do note that they have to be slightly smaller than your tent's base to avoid rain pooling under your tent)

A footprint is highly recommended to make your precious lightweight hiking tent last longer - Among a variety of uses, it protects your lightweight hiking tent from damage by sticks & stones on the ground where you are pitching your tent. The footprint we offer is high quality & is custom made to go with this hiking tent. However, (important note) - our tents itself are actually made to go and be used without footprints for your lightest hikes!!
