Luxe Outdoor Hex Peak V4A Footprint

£49.99

This product is unavailable

This is the V4a bucket footprint/groundsheet.

Designed to fit the V4, F6 and Octapeak this will give you the option to not use the full mesh inner if you wish.

It is designed to be used independently of the inner, rather than 'as well' as either inner.

Each corner point has a long reflective cord to allow you to hook the cord over the exterior pegs on the shelter. Once you decide which cord length you require, simply cut the cord to length and seal the end over a hot flame. (Maybe use the removed reflective cord on the V4 mid-panel slider)

Each upstand uses a stiff rod of 9cm depth to keep the sides erect.

Top Tip: When used in conjunction with any of the Hexpeak shelters we suggest you use the half tennis ball or pole mushroom at either end of the pole to (a) protect the floor and (b) protect the peak from abrasion.

215cm long x 185cm at the widest point by 9cm deep.

Weight: 450gm

HH: 4000mm

  • Top tips for a stable shelter in all weathers

    If the supporting pole sinks at any stage the material will lose all the tension and the tent can become unstable in high winds, with the possibility of the pole moving. The common tip here is to cut a tennis ball in half and use each half at either end of the pole. It prevents the pole from sinking and also reduces the pressure on the peak. Once this is in place, applying tension on all the surrounding guys will maintain tension throughout the night. Some use Marmite caps or Rebar Mushrooms.

    In excessive wet weather we have had occasional reports of the supplied guys slipping in the cleats. A simple overhand knot will stop this.

  • Seam sealing the tent

    As the silicone tents are designed without seam taping, we recommend user to apply seam sealing on the outside seam of flysheet where necessary (Mainly around the crown area). Along the horizontal stitching around the vent. Down the zip and 'inside' the guy loops and top loop. (Pull apart with your fingers) Anywhere water can gather is a potential point of issue if the tent will be subjected to prolonged rainfall or a persistently wet environment.
