KEY FEATURES OF THE ROBENS CHINOOK URSA
Stressed out city-folk heading off to the backcountry for weekends of chopping wood, cooking hearty meals over a real fire and hanging out with their best mates
More and more people want to release their inner Bear Grylls and reconnect with the great outdoors, without worrying too much about glamour. But at the same time, they don’t want to rough it. It’s all about having a laugh and enjoying the simple pleasures in life, ready to return to work on Monday morning feeling recharged. Robens have tapped into this back-to-basics feeling with their Outback range of camping gear that is aimed squarely at those who want to get closer to nature, safe in the knowledge that they are going to stay warm and comfortable. Inspired by sepia-tinged images of the early American pioneers, the range captures the mood of a bygone era but with all the benefits of modern technology. It looks great, but it works just as well. The Chinook Ursa tipi is the latest model to really catch the eye. The retro design combines with technical performance and modern manufacturing expertise to create something really special. It’s essentially a tipi that comfortably sleeps four or five campers in one large room. What makes it different is that it is fitted with zipped panels each side of the main door which allow the whole front of the tent to be poled out Bedouin-style in a matter of minutes.
