The tent is double-skinned and consists of an inner tent and an outer skin – a tropic. The inner tent has a rectangular floor plan with two entrances on its longer sides. The outer tent is an octagon, it also has two entrances with two halls, suitable for storing luggage or cooking in case of bad weather.
It is based on the principle that the bar structure is strung in tunnels outside the tropics. The tropic and the inner tent (which is hung under the tropic) are built at the same time after the rods are threaded through the tunnels. The advantage of this method is that the inner tent can be detached from the tropics and the tropics can then be set up separately. We get a single-layer tent without a floor.
It is located at the top of the dome of the tropics. The roofs of the ventilation windows are shaped so that they are not tilted by the wind, if necessary they can be closed with Velcro. This prevents leakage even in rain with strong winds.
Insert the bars of the structure through the tunnels outside the tropics and insert the ends of the bars into the brass eyelets on the loops of the lower edge of the tropics. Then we fasten the buckles on the straps at the ground inside the tent and thus the tropico will stand up. We turn the inner tent into loops on the inner side of the tropics. We anchor the erected tent with pegs and cords and complete it with plastic clips.
