SoulPad very kindly offered to auction one of their very own design, top selling bell tents for charity on Ebay auctions

The SouPad 5000-tribe 

Cotton canvas fly with sewn-in groundsheet (SIG), 5m diameter, 1.85m entrance, 3.5m at centre, weight 31.2kg. This SoulPad® really stands out from the crowd. You will never lose your tent amongst the endless domes again!

The luxurious, extra thick (540g/m2), waterproof groundsheet is sewn-in to the canvas material of the tent.

This groundsheet is ‘bath tub’ style, so if you find yourself at a festival camping in a field-turned-lake, you know it’s not going to let the water in.

There is a large vent at the top of the bell. This can be used to exit the SoulPad Blaze-tribeflue, or simply to vent the tent.

Taking its roots from both the northern Scandinavian Lavvu (for structural design) and the Native American tipi (for aesthetics), the 5000-tribe™ is conical in shape and has a large footprint. A significant area is in contact and anchored to the ground by three series’ of ground pegs, making it a real ground hugger.
