The X2 Bomb has the same asymmetric four-pole geodesic configuration of the X2 Storm, but features an extended porch supported by a fifth pole. Like the Storm, it is phenomenally strong and, with its spacious porch, is the perfect tent to sit out the most ferocious storms.
Although a low pack weight is important – and for its size the X2 Bomb is relatively light – our most important design criteria was to ensure strength and durability. To achieve this, the Bomb is made from the strongest fabrics available.
The X2 Bomb’s large porch has two doors, one on each side. The inner tent extends all the way back, making it longer than that of the X2 Storm. All the components – inner, flysheet and poles – of the X2 Storm and X2 Bomb are completely compatible with one another.

Always ensure the tent is completely dry after a trip before packing it away for any length of time.
The best way to do this is simply to pitch the tent and wipe down with a cloth using a warm water and detergent mix. Flysheets can get stains and mildew (from being stored in a damp condition) – once these occur, they are almost impossible to remove. Never machine wash.
As with the flysheet, wipe down with a cloth using a warm water and detergent mix. Never machine wash – this will cause the PU coating to delaminate.
After time, the elastic in the poles may lose its stretch, and the poles not fold away. It is possible to remove a pole foot at one end (these screw out), untie the elastic and pull it through until there is sufficient tension. Retie it to the pole foot, cut off the elastic and screw the pole foot back in. Do not let go of the elastic or you will find yourself re-threading all the sections!
Although the integrity of the seams is in most cases very good, occasionally there is insufficient tension in the stitching, which means some water can seep in. This can be rectified by applying seam-sealant. The area most susceptible to this is around the vent panels (as sewing three panels together is more difficult that a straight seam joining just two panels). (This does not apply to the X1 single-skin tents).
