Sirius

+ Sirius Extreme: Fast! Light! Sturdy!

> Sirius Extreme was barely a reality by the time it had received 2 major awards:

Backpacker (USA) bestowed its coveted “Editors‘ Choice 2003“ (first time ever

to a non-US tent company); and Outdoor Magazin (Germany) where it garnered

highest ranking in its in depth, tunnel tent test!

“The air is definitely

thinner in the ranks for

top of the line tents,

but Exped, the ingenious

team from Switzerland,

proves with its Sirius

Extreme that other

brands must take them

seriously!“

Outdoor Magazin, January 2003

“... the first tent we’ve

seen that lets us rave

about its low weight

without including

qualifying comments

about its tiny living space

or high price. At less than

6 pounds, it belongs in

the bantam weight class

person shelters - but it’s

so spacious it feels like a

three-person tent.”

> Flat pole sleeve

reduces resistance to

wind, snow and driving

rain.

a > Fast and easy setup: Exped’s innovative flat sleeves are accessed

from outside the fly and end with adjustable tension pole

pockets. And with the canopy already attached, setup goes

quickly: slide poles into the sleeves; seat ends into the pockets;

tension. With just 4 stakes to set, sleep is not far off!

b > Storm proof: Flat pole sleeve technology makes Sirius more

aerodynamic and strengthens the pole sleeve seams. For bad

weather conditions, ample loops and pre-mounted guy lines are

included (stored in Cord Stuffsacks). Double guy line loops grip

the pole sleeves to keep the fly from flapping in bad weather.

c > Large, adjustable door: tucks away into a side pocket; opens

to a variety of positions for ventilation; or, use poles and guy

lines for covered protection. A side wing can also be used as an

entrance.

d > Venting and viewing: windows open completely from inside

Sirius and are reinforced with mosquito netting to block the

bugs. Windows help to reduce condensation in rain, and simple

supports of pole repair tube keep the vents open at all times.

e > Easy handling all the time: zippers have color coded, reflective,

glow-in-the-dark pulls and are easily operated with one hand.

f > Multi-Use: Canopy is easily unhooked and pushed back for some

extra floor space, or it separates easily for use as a lightweight,

bug shelter. Rainfly offers basic shelter when reduced weight

is needed. And of course used complete... the award winning

design of the Sirius Extreme!
