PitchPal Umbrella Tent Specification
The fabric is PU (polyurethane) coated Oxford Polyester 210D with a 1500 mm hydrostatic head. You can protect and maintain the longevity of the fabric by spraying it from time to time with a proprietary tent waterproofing spray such as Nikwax. With a coated steel frame, you’ll find PitchPal to be a very sturdy and robust 8 ribbed umbrella tent. Though actually octagonal, the ribs are deliberately spaced to create more of a “rectangular” shape. This enables wider frontage, which can be useful in many circumstances.
The large front panel has two access zips, positioned vertically, one at each side. As an option, if preferred, the entire front windowed panel can be rolled and tied up leaving the front of your umbrella tent completely open.
The 2-section centre pole is height adjustable with a solid thumb screw clamp. The pole also has a flexi-spring section, which enables the canopy to be tilted at an angle if preferred. Although the tapered end of the pole can be pushed into the sand or soft ground we recommend the use of a ground anchor or umbrella base.
The outer perimeter of the canopy has a rugged, high quality zip to which the all round wind shelter can be attached as an option. Once attached, you can adjust the height of the centre pole and peg the lower edge of the wind shelter to the ground with the pegs provided. Alternatively, if you prefer the pole can be raised higher leaving a gap at the bottom of the wind shelter (side walls). You can then attach and peg down the short guy lines provided.
