The Rogen is an excellent tent for any trip in warmer and snow-free conditions where very light weight is of the highest importance. Dome construction affords stability and strength for use in more exposed situations, and makes the Rogen a great choice for tough pitching situations. It is quick and easy to set up, boasts two doors and two vestibules, and has room enough for two plus their gear - yet it is easily light enough for use as a (wonderfully roomy) solo tent. The pole system employs two long, crossing poles for the basic shape and a shorter pole in the roof, which both increases stability and provides head room in the vestibules. In keeping with its Yellow Label design, its outer tent does not go all the way to the ground, so air flow is constant, even in wet weather. And in fine weather, rolling away the vestibules exposes the near-full mesh inner tent doors for cross venting. Paddlers, summer mountain scramblers, backpackers, bicycle tourers - all will find the Rogens remarkable spaciousness, two door comfort, and self-supporting construction appealing.
- Kerlon 1000 outer tent fabric and 9 mm
poles make for a supremely lightweight
tent that is still quite strong.
- 3 season construction: outer tent walls
do not extend to the ground and mesh
areas have no backing fabric panels.
- Dome construction with two main crossing
poles is an excellent choice for tough
- The Rogen has a good amount of room
for two occupants and their gear.
- Linked but separable inner and outer
tent for simultaneous pitching.
- Self-supporting dome design requires
only the vestibules to be pegged, and
the lightweight pole system combines 9
mm poles with Lock Tip ball ends, open
ended pole sleeves, and an innovative
grommeted webbing tab with an adjustable
- Dual entrances and vestibules ensure
that one door can always be situated out
of the wind and provide flexible entry/
exit and storage options.
- An optional footprint covers only the
inner tent area and not the vestibule. It
connects directly to the tent, and can be
left attached during pitching.
- The outer and inner tents can be used
separately. Pitching the inner tent alone
requires moving the detachable pole
holders from the outer to the inner tent.
