The Crux X1 Raid is the very compact and light single skin tent. It is meant for cold and high places, and is not something we would recommend as an all round solution. Although it is a conventional 2-pole, Bibler-style bivouac tent, what sets it apart from the competition is the new, and quite unique, X-tex fabric. We are hesitant to call the X-tex fabric revolutionary – it still has limitations – but it does present significant improvements and advantages over the existing PTFE-type breathable membrane fabrics that are currently used. 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.
There are subtleties in the X1 Raid’s design that are not immediately evident to the eye, however. The poles are inserted through external pole sleeves, making it quicker and easier to pitch. This also means that the guy points loop around the poles themselves, taking stress directly off the seams.
