SoulPad 5000-hybrid-G™

Cotton canvas fly with zipped-in groundsheet (ZIG), 5m diameter, 1.75m entrance, 3m at centre, weight 29kg. This SoulPad® combines some of the luxury and practicality of the SoulPad-ease™ tents with all of the fun and drama of the SoulPad-lites™

The zip is protected and concealed by a canvas storm flap that runs its length to ensure zero penetration of water.

Luxurious, extra thick (540g/m2) groundsheet which is 100% waterproof.

This groundsheet is 'bath tub' style, so if you find yourself at a festival camping in a field-turned-lake, you know it's not going to let the water in.

If you're lucky enough to be at a sunny festival and in need of some cool, breezy shade, simply unzip the groundsheet and roll the walls up. Perfect if you need to catch some Zzz's on a hot day.

There are four zipped windows on this SoulPad® and four vents at the top of the bell, all with mosquito mesh fitted.

This SoulPad® has The Genie™ pre-fitted, for use with the Blaze-flue™ and Blaze™ stove (available separately).

To give an idea of the internal space available in this SoulPad® (when the SoulPad Blaze™ stove is not in use): it can easily accommodate 3 standard sized double air-mattresses, and still allow plenty of space for the entrance and equipment/luggage.

The 5000-hybrid-G™ will comfortably accommodate up to four users.
