The Khyam Highlander is yet another one of our models benefiting from the unique Khyam Rapidex™ Quick Erect System. The Highlander is a classic that has for many years been a firm favourite within the Khyam brand. For 2018 we have introduced a brand new colourway and upgraded the specification adding panoramic front porch windows with internal privacy curtains and a porch skylight ideal for a bit of evening star gazing. The Highlander’s pitching and striking takes a matter of minutes so you know that you are free to move between sites with ease. Due to these facts, this 3-man tent is ideal for festivals, auto-touring, or any occasion when you need a reliable tent that can be ready in seconds.
The Khyam Rapidex™ Quick Erect System mean all poles remain sewn into the flysheet and can simply be clicked into place in a matter of seconds. The tried and tested Rapidex™ System uses strong, solid fibreglass poles and durable, hard wearing nylon auto joints. So, with a little practice the Highlander can be erected in within 30 seconds!! The front porch provides a nice area to store your gear or have your morning cuppa!
The detachable inner-tent is created using breathable polyester to allow for a comfortable atmosphere throughout the night, preventing condensation forming. The inner-tent has a waterproof sewn-in groundsheet for added protection against those pesky insects, with ample room for 3 adults. A brilliant feature on the inner-tent is the pockets for storage of your items. A separate SPS Groundsheet is available to purchase to cover the whole area of the Highlander. As this is an added extra it doesn’t come included with the purchase of just the tent, but it’s worth it as is ensures your belongings are kept clean and dry in the porch area.
Now for the technical element – the Highlander benefits from using the Khyam commissioned WeatherWeave Pro Flysheet with taped seams, and additional polyurethane coating ensures excellent hydrostatic performance.
