Gamme 8 EXTREME
Norwegian outdoor brand
NORTENT provides gears reliable all seasons and in every situation. The brand aims for their gears to be beautiful in shape, and to blend in with nature. Gears that are light, safe, easy to set up and to provide comfortable experience.
Gamme 8 EXTREME is a self-standing dome tent inspired by Gamme, a home for the Sami people, the aboriginals of Scandinavia. It is equipped with a chimny port so it can be used in a cold winter day with firewood stove.
It is large in size, (216cm in height, 432cm in radius,) and weighs 12kg. The weight is extremely light considering its structure and its weather resistance.
The frame consists of 5 poles crossing each other at 7 different points. This structure helps the tent to stand in bad weather and heavy snowfall. The poles and the sleeves are color coded, so with practice, it is possible to set up alone. The hooks, carabiners, and belts are used to connect the poles and the fly sheet to the tent for higher durability.
The 6 ventilation windows constantly provide fresh air to the living space, which helps prevent condensation, and keep the stove burning. The doors consist of two layers with a layer of mesh material to keep insects from entering the tent. The skirts at the bottom of the tent prevent cold air and rain from entering, and provide a cozy space for the people inside.
This is a lightweight and compact tent, that is perfect in all weather and situation.
The EXTREME series
NORTENT proposes ARCTIC series, a regular line for the brand, and EXTREME series, a higher model line. The EXTREME series provides with durability and comfort for hardcore outdoor fans such as adventurers and geologists that work in extreme situations.
Nylon and dyneema materials are Korean patented materials, and they both passed a tear strength test, a waterproof evaluation test, and a UV protection index test.
The density of the material is approximately 20% higher than the materials used in ARCTIC series. The 40D fabric, (used in Lavvo, Koie, Gamme4,) has the strength to endure 18kg, and the 70D fabric, (used in Gamme 6 and 8,) 25kg.
The fly sheet is made of ripstop nylon, with 3-layer silicon coating on both sides, to realize high water resistance and durability. The silicon coating does not dissolve in time, so the water resistance does not wear off in time. The fly sheets are produced in a factory that has sophisticated sewing skills.
