Alpkit Heksa 6 Person Mountain Tent

© Alpkit
A large 4-6 person geodesic mountain tent, 'accommodating' sums up the Heksa in one word! Whether you are monitoring school expeditions across the moors of Yorkshire or waiting for your weather window high in the mountains the Heksa makes an ideal partner.


Blurring the boundaries of base camp and family camping, with the inherent strength of a base camp tent and the size of a family tent the Heksa will find favour with a multitude of users. It has room for 3-4 people to live comfortably inside for extended periods and it can accommodate up to 6, but you may be a little squished. It's small pack size and low weight will find it friends on expeditions all over the world. So whether you are taking the kids to Wales or planning an expedition to one of the world's biggest peaks, the Heksa has the space and the strength to accommodate your ambitions.

If you are on expedition, or even a weekend trip with the kids you know how important it is to have space that is practical and usable. Three doors with large vestibule porches and an inner adorned with pockets, the Heksa absorbs equipment as well as people.
