The Crux X1 Strike like all of the X1 range uses X-tex which means that unlike other single-skinned tents when climatic conditions cause condensation to form on the inner wall of the tent, the X-Tex fabric actually absorbs the moisture which prevents dripping (a serious problem with single skinned tents). The fabric stays dry to the touch whilst absorbing this moisture and continues to breathe at a significant rate, as it doesn't rely on water molecules remaining as vapour to pass through it.
So what does this type of tent offer over other tents?
Single skinned tents are lighter than double skinned traditional tents, therefore you can get a tent that weighs little but you haven't had to pare the strength of the fabrics and poles down to achieve that low weight as you do with a double walled tent. So single skinned tents can be light and strong at the same time.
Until now single skinned tents could only be used comfortably at high altitudes where the air holds little moisture so that the climate that you build up in the tent by breathing is able to be passed through the walls of the tent as easily as possible. Down in the valley in the U.K. for example where the air is generally moisture laden, your traditional single-skinned would be dripping all over you with condensation.
But no longer, you can get the best of all worlds with a Crux X1 tent.
In terms of features the Strike has a central roof vent and a mesh panel in the door for extra ventilation with no fear of mozzy attack.
