Our Review

The Robens Klondike Grande is a tent made for adventures. It's got traditional looks yet has the Robens high-tech adventure technology in its DNA.

It's part of a collection of tents from Robens that are just perfect for getting away from it all, whatever the season, such as the Robens Kiowa and the Robens Chinook Ursa.

OK, confession time. I didn't take that photo above of the Klondike Grande by a campfire. I stuck a picture of the tent onto a campfire photo. ;-) However, when I think of this tent or the others in the range, then this is exactly how I picture the perfect camp with them :-D

Like Canvas, but without the weight

The tent looks and feels like a traditional canvas tipi, but rather than a hefty canvas, the material is Robens HydroTex Polycotton, a mix of cotton and polyester. This makes it lightweight but still, have all the canvas properties, such as breathability and natural waterproofing once weathered.

Modern Tipi Pole Design

You don't have to carry a heavy wooden pole to hold the tent up. That too is modern, made from anodised alloy and has a neat design so that the central pole is only just over a foot long when transporting.

Groundsheet Options

The tent comes with a groundsheet. This is attached to the tent but can be zipped off if you wish. Or, you could partially unzip and roll back the groundsheet, providing space inside the tent for muddy boots or having a tent stove.

Using a Solid-Fuel Stove in the Klondike Grande

Tent stoves really let you continue camping in cooler weather and in places where you can't have an electric hook-up. However, to use a stove safely, you need a long flue and a safe exit point for the hot flue from the tent. Plus, the tent needs plenty of ventilation.

The Robens Klondike Grande has this built-in and ready to go. At the top of the tent is a sleeve for the flue pipe, so there's no need to get a hole cut in your tent. Plus, the tent is designed with good ventilation, both from the door and the low-level window vents and through the tent's apex. You can control how open the vent is in the apex by pulling on guylines that run inside the tent.

These vents have mesh to help you keep the insects out.

Robens Klondie Grande Ventilation

Ventilation in tents is important. Especially so when using a solid fuel stove.

I recommend you consider getting the matching Robens Kobuk Stove.

Sleeping Arrangements

Typically in this sort of adventure tent, you bed down where there's space. We typically sleep around the edges with the stove in the centre.

There are no bedrooms. Sleep where it makes sense!

No inner tent with bedrooms come with the Robens Klondike Grande, though you can purchase one if you want privacy or turn this tipi into a glamping tent.

Klondike Grande Inner Tent

No inner-tent comes with the Klondike Grande, though you can purchase one if you need it.

Using the inner reduces the tent's sleeping capacity to six. You cannot use the stove with the inner tent fitted.

This is a fantastic tent. At the time of writing this, there are some great discounts available. I even saw Blacks were selling this for just £665, which is an absolute bargain for this type of tent.
