Robens HydroTex® Polycotton

Most tents are made from 100% polyester.  This material is highly waterproof, which helps keep your tent dry.

Unfortunately, a tight-weave 100% polyester material isn’t breathable.

That’s the differents with a tent made from Robens HydroTex® Polycotton, a modern twist on the traditional canvas tent material.

It’s made with a tight-weave fabric that’s treated with a water repellant and UV-inhibitor.

Unlike polyester, the weave isn’t 100% waterproof.  Wait! Doesn’t that mean my tent will leak!?!  Well, no – not after weathering at least.

As the fibres get wet, they naturally expand to fill the holes and then dry back into their new shape.  When you get a new tent with Robens HydroTex® Polycotton, it’s important to spray the hose on it or leave it out in the rain and let it dry.

You will then have a tent that feels traditional (but not as heavy as traditional canvas), that helps keep the tent cooler in the summer months and warmer in the winter months compared to a 100% polyester tent.

Although we struggled to get the Robens Prospector up, once it was pitched, it was a great tent to create a home in, especially when the wood burning stove was fitted.

PROS:
  • A fast-to-pitch large tent that you can use a wood burning stove in :-)
CONS:
  • A strong gust of wind took the tent down before I had finished pitching it and we lost a few groundsheet anchors in the process, but otherwise, the quality of this tent has been very good.
