The Jannu is that rarest of combinations – tremendously strong and exceptionally light. The Jannu is our strongest, ultra-lightweight dome tent model, and is in some respects the ultralight version of the Tarra, but with only one entrance. At the same time, it is very much its own creature. For while it is an Ultralight tent, it is nonetheless ideal for harsh, high altitude use, and both exposed and/or above tree line terrain and protected conditions in all seasons and all weathers. Its compact footprint shines in limited-space sites, such as knife-edge ridges and small ledges, and it is very stable, even in high winds. Yet it is also easily light enough for use on long distance trips where low weight is a high priority. The Jannu’s single entrance and vestibule favor lighter weight over absolute comfort, and its dome design gives it exceptional static strength for handling snow loading. As a result, it is a fine choice both for base camp situations, and for mobile adventures, where you pitch your tent every day.
The Jannu was designed to be the ultimate, high-altitude mountaineering assault tent. Yet it is still easily light enough for weekend hikes in the hills. Thus, while the Jannu’s strength and light weight has made it the tent of choice for alpine mountaineers, its excellent snow-loading resistance have made it extremely popular with winter campers, hunters, and high altitude trekkers. Its light weight and self-supporting structure have also attracted many long distance backpackers and paddle tourers. And, since it is quite strong and spacious yet also very light, solo adventurers expecting the harshest conditions favor the Jannu, as well.
|USA’s Backpacker magazine named the Jannu Best All-Around Mountaineering Tent in their 2010 April Gear Guide. “If you want the best winter shelter…get this mountain fortress.”|
|USA’s Climbing Magazine writes “[For Denali] you’ve got to have the proper gear,” which includes the Jannu: “it’s the perfect barrier against the harshest conditions.”|
When Dutch outdoor magazine Op Pad reviewed the Jannu, they concluded, “All in all, a tent that could become as popular as the acclaimed Nallo series.”
Outdoor Gear Lab had this to say about Jannu when the rewarded it with editors choice:
"Very strong, lightweight, spacious, easy to setup, versatile, great ventilation, two color options, Spectra guy lines and camming adjusters."
