Aqua 60" Brolly

Availability: Out of stock


Quick Overview

After the success of the original 60 brolly and with the birth of the heritage range it gave us the perfect opportunity to re-release this classic design, utilising modern fabrics and the tried and tested bomb proof design.
• Performance grade Aquatexx®
• Large 60" powder coated hi tensile steel frame
• All 4 rear spars touch the ground
• Mini storm sides for additional protection from the elements
• Solid machined bell cap
• Optional mozzi infill available
• Optional Aquatexx® infill available
• Optional ground sheet available
• Multi directional machined brass storm caps
• Comes complete with pegs and a light weight storage sleeve
• 4.6kg


The Heritage 60 is further enhanced by the fact that the brolly can be transformed quickly into a full fronted shelter with the use of the Aquatexx Infill's (available separately) whilst offering a new full mozzi panel to protect you from biting bugs. All infill's use the original method of attaching via Velcro and are sold separately so you can tailor your system to your needs.

Other accessories, available separately include storm rods and a ground sheet. The 60" brolly offers comfortable living space even by today's standard and the size of most modern bed chairs, while maintaining the easy quick erection times and the ability to add extra cover in quick time if the weather turns against you.

Please note this product requires 2 x 32" storm rods

Technical Info:
The Aquatexx used for this product has reached a hydrostatic head of over 14000mm/H20 (mbar) in tests by an independent testing laboratory.
What does Hydrostatic Head mean?
In simple terms it is an accurate measurement of the water repellency of a material.
Rain resistance is measured as a hydrostatic head in millimetres (mm). This indicates the pressure of water needed to penetrate a fabric. This is simulated, in a simple way by placing a tube onto a piece of the fabric to be rated. Water is steadily added until it forces its way through the material. Just before it penetrates the material is the hydrostatic head measurement.
There are lots of factors that affect the Hydrostatic Head, heavy or wind-driven rain has a higher pressure than light rain, standing on a groundsheet increases the pressure on any water underneath, the pressure of rucksack straps on a jacket increases the pressure on the shoulders and so on...
Fabric with a hydrostatic head of 1000 mm or less is best regarded as shower resistant, with 1500 mm being usually suitable for summer camping. Tents for year-round use generally have at least 2000 mm; expedition tents intended for extreme conditions are often rated at 3000 mm.
