An ultralight, spacious shelter in a quick setup design, featuring Exped’s innovative Zipfree Door.
Large vestibule, easily accessed from inside Vela I, is large enough for all your gear. The door is easily raised to offer a view but still protects from the elements.
Large floor plan is especially long and wide, making it possible to bring gear inside or to help out a stranded, second person.
Ventilation is maximized in this storm proof design. The rainfly can be rolled up from either end, and both ends of the canopy have mesh windows. A hood protected vent enhances the chimney effect for venting. The foot end is aerodynamically shaped and can be completely tied down to face high winds. The head end features a mesh window.
Tie down loops attach directly to the pole sleeves for maximum stability in wind.
Ingenious, flat pole sleeve improves aerodynamics in wind and rain. Double seams and stitching offer extreme strength.
Setup requires just 2 stakes. Additional tie down loops make Vela I absolutely storm proof!
