66°North and Heimplanet launch durable The Cave XL 4-Season tent

Icelandic heritage outerwear brand 66°North and German camping gear innovator Heimplanet have collaborated to debut a state-of-the-art, four-season inflatable tent, The Cave XL 4-Season. It combines the outerwear brand’s reputation for design and durability with the outdoor travel company’s technical prowess. The limited-edition tent is now available globally on the websites of 66°North and Heimplanet.

66°North was originally founded to provide protective outerwear for fishermen and search and rescue teams in the North Atlantic nearly a century ago. The brand has since become a leader in developing products that are essential to the outdoors and last a lifetime. Based in Hamburg, Heimplanet is known for its clean designs and versatile products for exploring the world.

Tested in Iceland

Developed and tested to handle all seasons in Iceland – a country known for its dramatic weather and temperatures – the tent’s superlative strength comes from its geodesic dome construction with ten crossing points and high quality weatherproof, durable materials that hold up against wind, snow and rain. Its bright orange colour is inspired by safety shelters in the Icelandic highlands and designed to stand out against Iceland’s terrain.

With just a pump, the easy-to-inflate tent can be pitched in less than a minute and sleeps 3-4 people. Based on the original Heimplanet The Cave tent, this new iteration created with 66°North – The Cave XL 4- Season – is larger in size with 4-season capabilities.

66°North and Heimplanet ambassador, extreme weather adventurer and renowned landscape photographer, Benjamin Hardman, worked closely with both teams to develop the tent and was instrumental in testing in Icelandic conditions. “I’ve long used Heimplanet tents during my Icelandic expeditions, so I was able to share my first-hand experience of what elements are crucial to incorporate in a four-season tent designed for unpredictable settings,” said Hardman.

This is the first time that 66°North has launched a product of this kind and it’s exciting to partner with Heimplanet – a respected leader in camping gear technology – to offer a tent that meets the needs of many types of explorers, whether you’re a hardcore camper or just looking to spend more time in nature.”

“Since the beginning, Iceland has always been our reference for heavy tent conditions,” said Heimplanet Co-Founder Stefan Clauss. “Many people have told us that Iceland is the ultimate proving ground for the stability of a tent. Therefore, Iceland and its harsh conditions have always been our benchmark. To now take all our experience to build a tent to match the demands of Iceland is a dream coming true.”

The Cave XL 4-Season Tent will be available from today on 66°North.com and Heimplanet.com and costs € 990,- (£ 825).
