Versatile Bushmen Lodger Core Tent

The Bushmen Lodger Core Tent is the ultimate shelter for a whole host of outdoor trips. Whether you’re an ultralight solo camper, bike-packing, or even festival camping, it’s got you covered.

The ultrafine bug mesh material effectively protects against annoying bugs, providing a sanctuary during the day or next to the fire in the evening.

It’s compatible with any camping tarp and is the first fully tarp-compatible tunnel mesh tent from Bushmen! When used with the tarp, it creates an instant waterproof, stormproof, and bugproof shelter for protection in all conditions.

With its folding aluminium frames, this tent is quick and easy to erect in almost any terrain.

The combined pack weight, including frames, weighs less than 1.5kg* to keep your total kit weight to a minimum. Plus, it packs down to a size of 38*14*14cm, so you can conveniently store it in your rucksack and carry it without any added bulk.
