So, what exactly is the Robens Aero Yurt 8 Tent?
This high-quality product is a freestanding tent with air beams instead of traditional poles. This octagonal building has eight thick air beams that all meet at the summit. I’ve included it in my list of the finest inflatable tents, and the attributes listed below will convince you that it deserves to be there.
An intriguing feature of this design is that all beams can be inflated with a single valve. This implies that one person can readily set this tent up. The beams in the upper part are depicted in the image below:
The version sold in the United States has four valves, and I don’t know if they sell the tent with a single valve. However, as demonstrated in the video below, the tent with four valves can only be inflated through one of them.
The tent is also quite tall, with a height of 106.3 inches (270 cm) in the centre and 73 inches (185 cm) near the side walls (see image). So, in almost every way, this is a stand-up design. This is why it’s on my list of tall tents for family camping.
The tent has just a single door, as seen in the picture. So it’s almost as big as a house door. The tent’s shape is referred to as a yurt, as the title implies, due to its basic shape. However, this is a modern tent with all the characteristics required for complete protection from weather conditions and insects. So the floor is there and adequately sewed in, and the door has a mesh and a panel.
Because of its steep and straightened walls, I would classify this tent as cabin-style. It’s worth noting that the tent lacks borders, implying that it’s a one-room structure; it’s a shame they didn’t include something for privacy. Check out how it looks with multiple beds inside:
Who is it for
Capacity: The declared capacity is 8 persons, and the image below depicts how they believe you can use the room for sleeping on the ground. The area is now 181 ft2 (16.8 m2), giving each individual 22.6 ft2 (2.1 m2). As a result, this is a generous space for 8 people. This can operate well no matter where you use this tent. However, this is also a glamping tent that can accommodate fewer people.
Weight-wise, be prepared for the weight – the tent weighs no less than 69.2 lbs (31.4 kg). So far, so good; however, remember that this is a poly-cotton tent. The comparison table below shows how it compares to other tents made of the same or similar fabric. As a result, it could be classified as lightweight for a product of this type.
Climate-wise & seasons-wise, Tents made of the material you have here are the closest to what is commonly referred to as a four-season tent in terms of climate and seasons. This topic is covered in my separate text. So, in the case of summer camping in hot weather, this framework generates a relaxed atmosphere because it is breathable and well-ventilated.
However, it is enclosed with solid windows and all apertures that can be closed. Because polycotton fabric provides somewhat more excellent insulation than synthetic materials, it is one of the attributes that distinguishes it as a four-season tent.
However, remember there are better solutions than air beams if snow is on the tent because it can collapse under strain. It is best to choose one of the winter tents given in my separate text for accurate winter use. This tent is included in my list of cold-weather camping tents.
Wind testing: They claim it has been tested for winds of up to 95 km/h and that you would be safe in the tent in such conditions. Also, no poles may be destroyed or damaged with such air beams. The tent may collapse or deform due to wind pressure, but it will revert to its original shape once reduced.
The packed dimension (L x D) of 42.5 x 18.1 inches (108 x 46 cm) indicates that this tent is certainly for camping near a car.
The windows and doors
There are two solid windows made of what looks to be PVC and a zippered curtain for privacy. The single door has a mesh construction as well as a zippered panel.
So the finest part about this is its wall and roof, which are made of 35% cotton and 65% polyester. It should be noted that this is a ripstop fabric. This is the HydroTex Polycotton, which is both breathable and waterproof. It maintains a constant internal microclimate while allowing water vapor to escape. The material contains UV inhibitors and has a DWR finish.
Because cotton alone is substantially heavier, the blend with polyester reduces weight, which is why it is lighter than pure cotton tents, as seen in the comparative table below. Polyester adds strength and durability as well.
Cotton threads, on the other hand, swell when wet and expand as a result. This makes such tents waterproof even without a coating; the coating adds weight and has a limited lifespan.
The floor is also made of high-quality, long-lasting 210T Oxford polyester with a waterproof specification of 10000 mm. You’ll be pleased to learn that this is a bathtub design. All of this is impressive.
As one would expect from a tent of this size, the construction is single-layer. Condensation should be reduced to a bare minimum when using breathable fabrics. However, condensation can still occur even in such a tent. This tent is also on my list of the finest canvas camping tents.
This is a breathable textile with three mesh apertures. However, the tent has three relatively long floor vents. So, there is nothing to disagree with here. Because I said almost, they did not build roof vents. It’s because it’s so tall, and it’d be tough to get to them when the tent is up and close when/if necessary. However, with such a porous material, they are unnecessary.
Boosting the air beams
- To raise the tent, insert the pump nozzle (included in the package) into the valve and twist it to secure it.
- Pump until the pressure reaches 9 psi (0.6 bar).
- Close the valve cover and remove the hose.
Temperature changes may impact the air pressure in the tube; therefore, check the pressure regularly. Although the framework is self-supporting, it is recommended that you stake the tent firmly before pumping the beams.
