Our Review

For us, the Robens Chinook Ursa PRS has got to be one of our favourite tents of 2022.

Why? Well, we love our Robens Kiowa and running the Robens Kobuk stove in it.

We also love the now discontinued Robens Field Station. Although you couldn't run a stove in it, the lightweight Robens Hydrotex material made a small and light pack size, making getting away camping at the weekend easier.

And, we love the Robens Chinook Ursa tent, where the front opens up, making a massive shelter.

So with the Robens Chinook Ursa PRS, takes all the best bits of the above tents and combines them into one fantastic new tent in the Robens range.

Love it, or hate it?

However, this tent is not for everyone.

For instance, there are no windows, limited standing height, or built-in porch.

This tent is not the big family camping tent you might take on holiday.

No windows but vents

The tent has no windows, but there is some light via the low-level vents in addition to the door.

But for us, it returns to more basic weekend camping with added style. Plus, the fact that you can run a stove in it means we can make it nice and toasty for camping in the colder months.

Our family tent algorithm gave the Robens Chinook Ursa PRS a score of 8.3, which is good, but I'd give the tent a much higher score. However, it reflects that this is more of an adventure tent than your typical family tent, and it doesn't have separate bedrooms - though you can purchase an inner tent for it.

Inner tent

Here's the inner tent, which is an optional extra.

If you want some comfort, you can also get a fleecy carpet.

Fleece carpet

This tent has a fleece carpet (optional extra).

Fitting a stove

The stove fits similar Robens tents, such as the Robens Kiowa or Robens Chinook Ursa.

Looking up at the ceiling

If you look up in the Robens Chinook Ursa PRS, you'll see the stove pipe sleeve and the vent. The red lines open or close the vents.

Push the stove pipe up and through the sleeve.

Ensure the heatshield is on the flue pipe where it touches the sleeve.


This tent has lots of positives, like being easy to pitch, lightweight and small pack size, and the ability to use a stove.

However, if you are after a tent with lots of bedrooms, a porch, and plenty of living space, look at other tents, such as the ones from Outwell.

For me, I'd love to have it in my tent collection. :-)
