The X1 Raid SL is our superlight version of the standard X1 Raid. The SL models represent our new signature “expedition” range – available only in gold with a big logo printed on the side. The SL uses a lighter 20 denier nylon face fabric that is laminated with our X-tex membrane, making it our lightest single-wall, condensation-beating tent. We only recommend the SL if weight is of absolute importance – for a saving of 250 g, you get a tent that will only last half as long as the standard model.
Like all X1 models (the Quark excepted), the key characteristic of the Raid SL is its ground-breaking X-tex fabric. This utilizes a coating technology incorporating activated carbon which introduces a new and quite revolutionary means of managing condensation and is greatly superior to conventional breathable membranes.

The following accessories are available for the X1 Raid SL:
Always ensure your tent is completely dry after a trip before packing it away for any length of time. Tents can get stains and mildew if stored in a damp condition – and once these occur, they are almost impossible to remove.
The best way to clean your X1 Raid SL is simply to pitch the tent and wipe down with a cloth using a warm water and detergent mix. Never machine wash.
Wipe down with a cloth using a warm water and detergent mix. Never machine wash – this will cause the PU coating to delaminate.
Over time, the elastic cord inside the poles may lose its stretch. In this case, unscrew the pole foot at one end, untie the elastic and pull it through until there is sufficient tension. Retie it to the pole foot, cut off the excess elastic and screw the pole foot back in. Don't let go of the elastic or you will find yourself re-threading all the sections!
