Supremely strong self-supporting tent that can handle any situation in any kind of weather. The Saivo has always been a superb three person tent for adventures where absolute static strength is the highest priority. Redesigned for 2011, the latest Saivo is even better. As before, its Kerlon 1800 outer tent fabric and 10 mm poles afford exceptional sturdiness, and its dome design provides great static strength for handling heavy snow loading. But the new Saivo also shares many of the features found in our new four person Saitaris, including our new pole system, a combination of full pole sleeves, sleeves and clips, and integrated adjustable pole tensioners like those in our tunnel tents. The system was designed specifically both for impressive solidity and to make setting up a large, three or four person dome tent straightforward for one person, even in bad weather. Also like the Saitaris, the new Saivo has Keron tunnel tent-inspired vestibules, which are much roomier than those on the old version, and whose vestibules’ hooded vents add another dimension of air flow to the Saivo’s already impressive roof venting.
Indeed, the Saivo has the same usage profile as the Saitaris, but for three people rather than four: It is the optimum choice anytime strength and stability are of primary importance, so it makes an ideal base camp tent in the most demanding conditions, especially in high mountains, exposed or above tree line terrain, and arctic environments. The Saivo is also an excellent option for particularly demanding mobile journeys in exposed and/or relentlessly harsh conditions, or in any season where roomy comfort is important.
Like the Saitaris, the Saivo is well-suited to a wide array of adventures. It is the quintessential tent for those, such as climbers and ski mountaineers in isolated, high-mountain terrain, who will leave their base camp unattended for extended periods of time. At the same time, its strength and space to weight ratio also make it a superb choice for expedition use in demanding conditions (the Saivo is often used by teams going to the South Pole). Ski and paddle tourers, as well as desert travelers, have long appreciated the Saivo’s spacious interior and roomy vestibules, as well as its self-supporting structure and easy-to-pitch design. Of course, all these attributes also make the Saivo a great choice for less demanding trips, as well, whether that’s a weekend of car camping or a leisurely, week-long, base camp-oriented hiking vacation in the mountains.
|Two years in a row the Saivo was selected as Gear of the Year by the readers of the premier German outdoor magazine Outdoor.|
|Villmarksliv, The Norwegian outdoor magazine, rated the Saivo 5.5 out of 6. “One of the best tents we have ever tested – a tent for life.”|
|The German magazine Outdoor compared European and American geodesic tents for winter use and named the Saivo the clear winner: “Better is hardly possible!”|
