NORTENT Vern 1 Person 4 Season Backpacking Tent

By Nortent

The NORTENT Vern 1 Person 4 Season Backpacking Tent is an extremely durable and solid tent intended for 1 person. Optimal for the longer hikes in mountains and over isolated plains where you really need a reliable shelter against the elements. With its aerodynamic shape and several possibilities for anchoring the tent to the ground, this tent is a true companion which will keep you safe in the different elements. We believe you should not have to fight the elements but rather become one with and thrive in them.

The NORTENT Vern 1 Person 4 Season Backpacking Tent is designed to provide clean and correct lines that blend in with nature. We have placed great emphasis on the tent being able to be set up quickly and easily without obstacles. With a little practice you should be able to set up the tent in a mere 2-3 minutes!

All exposed areas on the outer fabric are reinforced with Dyneema, considered the world's strongest fibre. It is therefore entirely appropriate that we use this fabric fibre in these tents.


  • Features

    The flysheet made of silnylon is of course waterproof. But like all quality tents with this type of fabric, the seams should be lubricated with a special mixture of silicone so that the seams are 100% water proof.

    However, a dense tent presents a challenge, and that is air circulation. If the air is not circulated, you will experience condensation inside walls of the outer flysheet (not inside the inner tent). Ventilation is therefore absolutely essential to avoid this. Vern 1 is therefore equipped with 4 air valves. Two air valves at the bottom at each end of the tent, where fresh air can find its way in, and one above each of the two entrances where moist air finds its way out.

    The two air valves at the top also function as an extra overhang and protection against rain when you leave the entrance open.

    Vern 1 has a relatively spacious awning to be a one-man tent where there is plenty of space for a backpack, shoes and other equipment. At the same time, the awning is well adapted for cooking and use of cooking equipment

    At the awning you will find a spacious inner tent with plenty of space for one person where the inner tent easily accommodates a 190x60 cm sleeping pad in addition to gear and clothes.

    For cold days you can seal the doors in the inner tent completely. For hot days you can open them, but still and at the same time, have mosquito net covering the entrances against insects.

    We have equipped the inner tent with several opportunities for storage. For organising all the small equipment you bring on your trip that too often and mysteriously seem to vanish.

    In calm days you can open the whole side of the tent to get "nature" into the tent. On wet and harsh days, you can leave the entrance partially closed, but still be sheltered from the weather and wind. On a good old rainy day, you may like to close the entrance completely. But still, there is of course the possibility to make dinner and food in the awning. Vern 1 is designed for flexible use where you are presented with many different options to let nature into the tent, but at the same time be protected from wind and rain.

    The thick and very strong fabric sewn into the seams in realtions to the clips attached to the poles plays a crucial role in efficiently distributing the external forces across a larger area along the seam. When for example strong winds act on the tent, the thick reinforcement, serves as a robust support structure.

    As the wind exerts force on the tent fabric, the thick reinforcement helps disperse this force over a broader surface. This distribution of force prevents concentrated stress points and minimises the risk of tearing or damage to the tent material. Essentially, the reinforcement acts as a buffer, absorbing and diffusing the energy generated by external forces

    The large area coverage of the thick fabric along the seam is particularly significant. By extending the reinforcement along the seam, where the fabric panels are joined together, the forces are effectively spread across the entire length of the seam. This not only enhances the overall strength of the tent but also ensures that no single point along the seam bears an excessive load.

    In essence, the thick reinforcement sewn into the seam functions as a strategic component, working in tandem with the thinner nylon fabric to create a resilient and wind-resistant structure. By distributing the pull and energy from the wind over a wide area along the seam, the tent becomes better equipped to withstand varying weather conditions, providing durability and reliability in challenging environments.

    Oh, absolutely! Vern 1 is designed for double poling, a feature made possible by ditching traditional tent sleeves. Imagine yourself in the thick of challenging weather – relentless winds threatening to disrupt your shelter or sudden weather changes. Double poling becomes your secret weapon, providing unmatched stability and adaptability.

    With the freedom to double up on poles and the elimination of restrictive sleeves, you gain a significant advantage in creating an ultra-secure shelter. It's not just about setting up a tent; it's about confidently navigating the unpredictable elements. Whether you're contending with fierce winds or embracing a surprise snowfall, double poling offers a practical solution that takes your adventures to the next level in terms of adapting to the elements.
