The first fully tarp-compatible, 2-person tunnel mesh tent .
The uniqueness of the CORE-Tent® LODGER lies in both its simplicity and the unlimited freedom to customize the product.
With a long waterproof storage space, there is more than enough room for very tall people.
You can use it simply as a mesh tent or cover the LODGER with a tarp and turn it into an ultralight tent in a few moments.
Need a two-person, super-lightweight double tent?
Piece of cake – cover the CORE-Tent® LODGER with an ULTRALIGHT 2×3 tarp.
Your setup, including the aluminium frame, weighs less than 1.5kg.
You have room for two people and luggage while being fully protected in case of bad weather.
A little extra weight is not a problem?
Try the CORE-TENT® LODGER + THERMO-Tarp 3×3 combination.
To use an automotive analogy: you’ve just moved from a sports coupe to a super-comfortable SUV.
This combination gives you an extra 2 square metres of space in the form of a vestibule. This provides extra protection from the wind and cold or (stretched out with a thermal layer on the outside) acts as air conditioning when the sun decides to show you what “hot as hell” means in practice. Your kit still remains unbeatably light – under 2kg.
Note – to enjoy the extra space, support the end of the tarp on a trekking pole, paddles or other available support.
Whatever tarp (not only from our collection) you own, the CORE-TENT® LODGER will work perfectly with it.
The CORE-TENT® LODGER is half a meter longer than other ultra-lightweight tents, allowing you to spread out your gear so it doesn’t interfere with sleeping comfortably.
Tall people especially appreciate this solution – no more snagging your head on the tent walls, no more feet sticking out of the tent.
The tent paired with a 2×3 tarp provides additionally a side luggage space with convenient access through the side entrance of over 1 sq. m.
When using a 3×3 tarp, the vestibule provides another 2 sqm under the roof.
It is not only a space for luggage, it is also a comfortable living space during rain or heat
Front and side entrances offer a wealth of choices depending on individual needs and situations.
You can go classic by using only the front entrance, while leaving the side ones as access to the tarp-covered “luggage” area.
You can also raise the half tarp, lean on trekking poles, paddles, bicycles or simply branches and enrich your bedroom with a roof covered patio.
It’s not only a comfortable wide exit but also an opportunity for evening campfire contemplation?.
The CORE-Tent® LODGER is designed to create large, lockable ventilation ducts when covered with a tarp. Thanks to them and the two-layer construction (mosquito + trap-tropic) moisture does not condense and at the same time allows to regulate the temperature inside.
This unique solution provides comfortable camping conditions regardless of the weather.
CORE-Tent® LODGER is a real must-have for cyclists, kayakers and all those travelers who appreciate lightweight, compact equipment offering many configuration possibilities.
