Force Ten's Helium 1 Solo Tent is a two skin tent designed with maximised headroom, good internal storage and a reasonable porch area.

Description  Features

The Helium 1's hybrid tunnel design, ease of pitching and fully taped seams make this lightweight tent a welcome and reliable shelter. TBS® Pro and pre-bend poles offer exceptional stability, and vents allow for a through flow of air reducing any condensation build up.

Extremely light weight and a compact pack size make the Helium ideal for short trips without compromising function or performance.

 
  • Hybrid tunnel tent - Maximising inner space to weight ratio
  • TBS® PRO - Internal Guying System using an ultra-lightweight dyneema cord
  • Pre-angled poles - Achieve greater internal space than with a standard curve. Provides effective bracing against side winds
  • Breathable ripstop inner fabric - Allows condensation to pass through, for a comfortable night's sleep. Ripstop weave for extended durability.

  • Dyneema core guylines - Excellent strength to weight ratio
  • Mini Line-Lok guyline runners - Lock securely, simple to release and high performance in all conditions
  • Dyneema pegging points - Can be modified for use with skis or snow anchors
  • Multiple reflective points - On pegging points for visibility in low light

Vango's F10 Helium 1 UL Tent offers comprehensive protection and solid durability at a pretty low weight given that its a two skin tent with its own poleset.

This year Force Ten's Helium tents are made from 15D fabric for the flysheet and 70D fabric for the floor. This knocks off some of the weight from previous heavier designs.

This design of tent can seem cramped, but the design usually has a circular hoop; the Helium has a shaped hoop which maximises head height over the inner tent getting the best out of the hoop. The inner tent is not massively long at 210cm (6ft 10in), but there's additional storage space at the back of the inner tent.

The Helium is a good design in a lightweight package, with the internal storage area and reasonable porch size its a good tent for solo backpacking.

In this updated model more seam tape has been added to the design to increase the weather protection.

UK Orders

We aim to ship all orders placed before 3pm Monday to Friday, on the same day. Free shipping is offered for UK Orders over £15 order value. The form of shipping will be at our discretion and will be at the most cost effective service. For most parcels this will be Royal Mail Second Class Post, the timescale for delivery is not guaranteed but Royal Mail aim to deliver second class post in 3-4 working days. Some parcels may require a signature.

Faster Tracked Services

Faster shipping options can be purchased at the checkout - see the drop down menu, First Class post is available, as is Next Working Day Delivery. We can arrange Next Day Delivery for a Saturday (when the order is placed on Friday) - call us for charges on an individual basis (01740 661467).

EU Orders

We aim to ship all orders placed before 3pm the same day. The default shipping is 'Standard Delivery'. This is an airmail service which does not offer tracking but is very reliable. We have learned from experience that transit times for non-UK orders can be very unpredictable. To geographically close countries in Europe the times are generally up to 4-5 days but can sometimes take a lot longer - we don't know why.

So, for EU Orders over £15 in value we offer FREE delivery, but the service time is unpredictable. If you need your order by a specific date you can opt for a faster service at the checkout.

Faster Tracked Services

Faster tracked shipping options can be purchased at the checkout - see the drop down menu on the checkout page for options. Typically the service we can offer is 2,3 or 4 working days, if you require a faster delivery than is showing on the drop down menu please contact us at info@worldbackpacker.co.uk as we may be able to help.

Rest of World Orders

We aim to ship all orders placed before 3pm the same day. The default shipping charge is 'Standard Delivery'. This is an airmail service which does not offer tracking but is very reliable. We have learned from experience that transit times for non-UK orders can be very unpredictable. To geographically close countries in the times are generally up to 4-5 days but can take a lot longer - we don't know why. Countries farther afield generally take longer but the spread of transit times is amazing, we have been notified of parcels arriving in Australia after 3 days and others taking a month and (rarely) longer than this.

So, while the shipping options for ROW are quite cheap the service time is unpredictable.
