Gin lightweight PPG bivouac tent

Monday 3 December, 2018

Gin paramotor tent

Gin have brought to the market a lightweight tent for paramotorists, which uses the paramotor cage as the main hoop.

The idea was conceived by French paramotorist Nicolas Berger and tested on a 3,900km trip across Europe from Sweden to Spain in the summer of 2018.

The tent pitches inner first – one end is attached to the motor, and it is pegged to the ground, and then the waterproof outer goes over the top.

The 1.2kg tent packs down into a 40cm x 14cm package and is very quick to put up. The inner has an inbuilt mosquito net too.
