Boreas Unveils Futuristic Tent Designs

Relative new-comer Boreas has already caught our eye with their sleek, futuristic backpack designs, and this spring, they’ll expanding into making tents. Take the Trava Single-Pole ($350), a double-wall two-person tent with two vestibule doors. A single aluminum pole creates the tent’s rigidity, arching lengthwise before branching out at either end to attach to the tent’s corners. The set-up looks pretty simple: clip the tent to the pole, then stake out the corners, and, if needed, toss on the rain fly. The 31-square-foot footprint is roomy enough, but poly mesh canopy rises only 41 inches off the ground—a downfall of that solitary pole. No doubt the tent’s aesthetic is sleek. With the rain fly on, it looks as if it was meant to be pitched on Hoth. But at three pounds and ten ounces, it’s a bit heavy for a tent with only one pole.—Nathan Borchelt
