Unfortunately, as a small company, we’re at the mercy of search engine returns and that means we have to market our products using the industry’s accepted terminology. We definitely think it’s time for a change though and we’ll be looking to become more person-able as we become better known.Is the tent suitable for motorbike touring?
If you can fit the tent onto your hog then the Cinch will give you more tour time, a good night’s sleep and a whole bunch of envious looks. It’s really important that you make sure you can fit the tent into your pack though, so take some time looking at the Size & Weight charts on our product pages and think carefully about your pack and what you can handle on the road.Is the tent suitable for back packing or bicycle touring?
This is entirely up to you and how you envisage your trip. The weight and bulk of your equipment can be paramount to your packing concerns and we recommend that you take some time to imagine how you might incorporate the Cinch into your setup, the weight you think you’re capable of carrying comfortably and whether the rewards the tent offers are worth the extra weight. Customers who have managed to fit the Cinch into their pack (or their group’s pack) say that it pays back in comfort, features and convenience, but for some people it is too bulky.Have you thought of adding…?
Our customers’ ideas have informed the design process at every stage and we love to hear yours. Send them in to us via email or catch us in the chat. We always love to talk tents.Can I see the Cinch in a shop near me?
Not at the moment! Selling directly to you, our customer, means we can keep production values really high without increasing the price to take into account a retailer’s cut. We love dealing directly with you guys & have built the tent to make it work for you. Long may it continue.Can I use the pop up extended canopy on both sides of the tent?
Our new pop up extended canopy is compatible with either entrance to the tent, which means you can choose which end to set up in. Though you’re free to add an extended canopy to both ends of the tent, we only really recommend having one because you’ll struggle to use the solar power pack and you’ll cover a few too many of the guy lines.Are the pop up accessories compatible with older models of the tent?
Unfortunately the new accessories can only be used with the latest models of the Cinch tent. Progress comes at a price! We do have some stock remaining of previous year’s accessories so please drop us an email if you’re interested in picking up older models of the extended canopy and footprintDoes the tent come with solar power?
Though we totally recommend the Solar Power Pack, some people would rather camp without it and so we sell the two separately. Our latest Solar Power Pack is more powerful than ever and integrates seamlessly with the tent – check it out here.Do you use any chemicals in your tent?
We use a polyurethane (PU) coating on our fabric to make it waterproof. An Ethylene-vinyl acetate is used to form the little windows used to house the solar power pack. We don’t use any flame retardants on our our tent after we discovered that most flame retardants are considered carcinogenic.What kind of groundsheet do you use?
Our pop up tent comes with not one groundsheet, but two. Both are fully sewn in, meaning that there is no access for bugs, mosquitoes, foxes or racoons in any part of the tent. We use an especially thick Oxford material with a HH rating of 6,000, making it six times the industry standard for waterproofing.
If you want extra protection from the ground or to keep your Cinch nice and clean, then the footprint is a great accessory.
The Hub uses a slightly different system, with a detachable PU groundsheet boasting a HH rating of 12,000. If you want to feel a bit of grass between your toes then you can take it off, or if conditions are bad then it attaches in a jiffy using velcro and toggle points.
