Spacious and stable dome tent with two generous vestibules. A lightweight and comfortable trekking tent for four, season use, in all conditions except the most exposed. Two entrances simplify tent life, you can organise one side each inside the tent and use the lee, side entrance in windy weather. There is also plenty of space for equipment, cooking and activities when the weather is bad. The inner tent and flysheet are raised together. The three, pole construction makes the tent self supporting and easy to pitch anywhere , use the guylines to anchor it in place and make it totally stable in the wind. The pole sleeves are colour coded for simplicity and dimensioned so you can use double poles (an accessory) in exposed conditions. The tent has a comfortable sitting height and a good area for socialising. There is a detachable mesh shelf in the inner tent and several mesh pockets for storing gear. Large entrances with extra, fine mosquito netting allow you to admire the view from your sleeping bag without the intrusion of insects. Closable ventilation openings at different heights give the best possible airflow. This, together with the possibility of fastening the outer door in a half, open position, makes the tent an excellent choice in tropical climates. The flysheet is made from Fjallraven\x92s new high, performance TripleRip nylon and an innovative construction that combines two different fabric weights , 20 denier in the top part and 40 denier at the bottom where abrasion is most intensive , giving excellent strength despite low weight. Just like all of Fjallraven\x92s tents, Abisko Dome 2 is made entirely without PVC plastic and toxic flame retardants, and its impregnation is fluorocarbon free.
In the 1950’s, 14 year, old Ake Nordin from Ornskoldsvik in Northern Sweden spent more time outdoors than indoors. After many long treks in the mountains, Ake decided the backpacks at the time were unsatisfactory and took matters into his own hands by building a wooden frame. This evenly distributed weight across his back so the pack did not end up uneven, pear, shaped, and uncomfortable. It also meant he could carry more weight with ease. Ake’s innovation quickly caught on and in 1960 Fjallraven became the first to commercially make and distribute framed backpacks.
Fjallraven means Arctic Fox in Swedish, honoring the small and highly adaptable predator that lives in the Swedish mountains under the harshest conditions. From the small town of Ornskoldsvik, Fjallraven has now expanded to every corner in the world. The fundamental ideas remain the same; provide functional, durable, and timeless equipment to make the outdoors more enjoyable for all. We continue to find smart, innovative solutions to make every adventure an unforgettable one.
Ake built his first framed backpack in his basement with his mother’s sewing machine. Using strong cotton fabric for the pack, he attached the wooden frame using leather straps and used calfskin for the support straps. Not only was the pack more comfortable and distributed weight evenly, it also increased ventilation between his back and the pack. Soon after, during a trip up North, Ake’s invention caught the attention of the indigenous Sami people who spent weeks at a time high up in the mountains. They asked Ake to build them a backpack and after that a tent. Fjallraven had found its beginning.
