Sustainability & Care

Environmental impact

Gear you'll love for longer

Ordos is built to last with Ripstop nylon used throughout and alloy poles. It'll keep going trip after trip.

Care Instructions

Clean and dry your tent thoroughly after each use. Spot clean with warm water, mild (non-detergent) soap and a soft sponge. Air dry only.

Never use a washing machine, tumble dryer or jet wash to clean your tent. Never use bleach, fabric softeners or other household cleaning products.

Additional care advice:

To make your tent last longer, avoid prolonged UV exposure and repair damage immediately. If you are unlucky enough to rip your tent on a trip, use duct tape or StormSure Tough Tape until you have a chance to repair it properly. Find out more in our Tent Care and Repair Spotlight.
