The family tent Boston 5 Dural comes in handy for longer camps with family or friends, or for paddling trips and bicycle tours. Inside you can find a comfortable and spacious vestibule with two entrances, where you can also spend time in adverse weather. The tent also has a large detachable bedroom for five people with a separate entrance.

GROUNDSHEET: Layered polyethylene
This is a very strong material used as a groundsheet especially under large tents. Groundsheets made of this material are abrasion-resistant, so they’re a very popular choice for family tents. And as you’d expect, they’re waterproof, which is absolutely essential.
INNER TENT: Nylon 190T, mosquito net
Very fine, light, and breathable synthetic fibres with sufficient strength and elasticity. That’s why they are very resistant to tearing or other mechanical damage. This material is also suitable for low temperatures because of its good thermal insulation properties.
The fine, breathable, and yet durable material of which the inner mosquito net is made makes it possible for air to better circulate around the tent. This ensures great ventilation.
OUTER TENT: 185T polyester, polyurethane (coating 3,000 mm H2O)
This is a very light material that’s tear-resistant. Synthetic polyester fibres improve the product’s ability to resist adverse weather, stop colours from fading, and deal with getting soaked – since they dry really fast.
Polyurethane (coating 3,000 mm H2O)
The polyurethane coating provides permanent impregnation and is applied directly onto the material in various layers. This special treatment of the material prevents water penetration. The coating parameter is given by the height of the water column (stated in mm H2O), in other words the ability of the material to withstand water pressure.
Thanks to its advantageous properties, this material is widely used for outer tent structures, especially for expedition tents where every gram counts. Dural is an alloy combining aluminum with other elements to give it a low weight and the ability to withstand a large loads.
