THE ROGEN IS AN EXCELLENT CHOICE for any trip during the snow-free months of the year where very light weight is of the highest importance. Especially well-suited to those who prefer dome construction, its self-supporting design is a good option for tougher pitching conditions.
Two equal length crossing poles create the basic shape, and a shorter pole in the roof provides vestibule head room and adds to overall stability. Single opening pole sleeves make for quick pitching, and catenary patterning in the bottom of the outer tent walls offers constant venting. The inner tent doors are all mesh for full time air flow, and both vestibules can be rolled away for added cross venting.
The Rogen’s spaciousness and self-supporting construction, along with its remarkably low weight and the comfort of its two vestibules, will appeal to paddlers, summer mountain scramblers, backpackers, bicycle tourers, and hunters, among others. These same traits also make the Rogen a compelling choice for solo travelers who value roominess and maximum comfort.
