The light Sawaj 2 tent from the Ultralight range is a great choice for bicycle touring and trekking enthusiasts. The weight of this model is only 2.2 kg, and has been minimized by siliconizing. Which means this double-skin freestanding tent with poles on the inside is also suitable for longer trips. It provides comfortable shelter for two people.

OUTER TENT: 20D 360T ripstop nylon
Very light and breathable synthetic fibres that are also sufficiently strong and elastic. That’s why they are very resistant to tearing. This material is also suitable for freezing cold conditions because it has good thermal insulation properties. In addition, the fabric is reinforced with a ripstop finish. Fabrics woven using this technology prevent mechanical damage, and if any such damage occurs, they stop it spreading further.
Siliconizing (double-side coating 3,000 mm/cm²)
A silicon coating is a reliable way of protecting the material against dampness as efficiently as possible, and it does so permanently. The impregnation is second to none, it’s light and extra-strong, and applied on the outer layer of the tent. Moreover, a material with this coating has a considerably higher resistance to UV radiation, as well as good thermal insulation properties. So it can be used even at very low temperatures.
The double-side silicon coating, in combination with the nylon and ripstop finish of the material constitutes currently the most advanced and lightest combination of technologies. Due to siliconizing, nylon is protected from UV radiation and is absolutely waterproof. Furthermore, this version makes it possible to use the lowest possible material weight.
GROUNDSHEET: 70D 210T nylon, polyurethane (coating 10,000 mm H2O)
70D 210T nylon
A very light and breathable material that’s also sufficiently firm and elastic. This is what makes it so resistant to tearing and other mechanical damage. It’s also suitable for freezing conditions because it has good thermal insulation properties.
Polyurethane (coating 10,000 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.
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.
