Dometic Ascension FTX 601 TC (2022)
The Dometic Ascension Tent has been designed to be the best of the best, the one thing that stands this tent out from the rest is the sheer amount of features built into the model also with a new design. Dometic have included every feature in their back catalogue to make this one of the best spec’d tents on the market and it really is the fine touches and details which make this tent what it is.
The Ascension TC is available in two sizes a 601 & 401 (6 person & 4 person) It is made from a Polycotton material which is perfect for those warmer days camping as it is breathable allowing the internal temperature of the tent to be a lot more comfortable as well as having less condensation. The TC fabric also has a longer lifespan in comparison to a normal Polyester but it does tend to be about a 20% heavier. Through out the tent there is great interior height thanks to a very boxy shape and oversized beams. The tent can be pitched by one person in around 16 minutes.
The tent has four zones: a rear storage area to de-clutter the main body of the tent, a very generous sleeping area (with a master bedroom) to accommodate any air bed or camp bed, a big living area to make sure you are never short of space (especially on those rainy days) and a ample front awning section giving you a great wet/dry area before entering, which can also be used to create the perfect shelter cooking spot. An additional annexe can be zipped onto the side of the tent to give another storage space or a toilet location so that you don’t have to go far in the middle of the night.
Dometic’s Ascension has key features such as zip curtains and bedroom dividers with press stud poppers to retain the material when not needed. The poppers also allow you to hang lights and cables around the tent which is something you don’t see on any other brand. The Rear Storage area can be used to increase the depth of the bedroom or help to hide away any excess bags. It would also be a good place for a low wardrobe so you can get changed in the morning without having to go into the living area. Darkened sleep-tite bedroom help to make the whole family to sleep longer by blocking out the early morning light.
Overall we feel the Dometic Ascension TC is a stand out model for the 2022 season and is for the family looking for everything in a tent.
