I bought this tent recently and have just used it for a 2 night camping weekend. I have to say it oozes quality at a fantastic price. It rained a lot and the inner tent stayed completely dry. There was no condensation inside thanks to impressive vents. The blackout facility worked a treat on a site lit with floodlighting. It was totally dark for a great sleep. I would highly recommend 2 things. The first is buy it. The second is buy a 2 man for one person and for two people get the 3 man. The two man was just right for me and my bags. Very good, well constructed tent that is easy to erect.
used this tent for a two day slalom kayak comp. and found it ideal , enough room for myself and my kit ( boat outside but paddles etc inside ) , kept me warm and sunge inside . I have used single skin tents for the same compo a year previous and froze but with the double skin of this tent iwas warm refreshed for the next day which helped my performance , looking forward to next season using this tent every time
Informed after a week of waiting order cancelled as out of stock ...so disappointed!!!!
I bought this to replace a pop up type tent that leaked badly when I used it last. I decided to go for this version as I liked the idea of blackout fabric and that it was meant to be cooler.
Just used it for 4 days in extreme sun/heat and thunderstorms! It was easy to set up. The tent stayed up when others were blown away! It stayed dry inside and I loved the fact I wasn’t woken up too early by sunlight coming in. Great idea!
My only criticism would be that you can’t avoid rainwater getting in when you open the tent as there’s no porch type cover and there’s no way to fasten the ‘doors’ open but for the price it’s a great tent!
Bought two of these for our kids who’ve grown out of sleeping in the Campervan with us. Used them last weekend when it was 27c with constant sunshine and they stayed cool and dark. Also pretty easy to put up and a lot easier to put down than pop ups we originally got elsewhere. Can’t comment (yet) on how they bear up in cold and wet weather.
Can you carry this tent and the equipment to assemble it in a cabin bag on a plane?
Do the airlines allow such equipment on a cabin bag in a plane?
Will I need to have a camping mallet to assemble this tent?
Looking forwards to your response.
Fantastic little tent overall! Spacious for one but a bit cosy for two with kit. Quick and easy to pitch. We use 3 of them inside a large tent for our 3 kids so they each have their own pod/zone. The blackout was the main feature we bought them for and it is totally dark which helps sleep immensely and fun to use torches for bedtime stories even at 8pm in mid summer. Best addition to our camping experience since our gas fridge!
I took this tent with me to Tanzania for 11 days of camping in various national parks and conservation areas (Serengeti, NgoroNgoro crater). It took it all well even when hyena and wild pigs came sniffing the tent at night, it is easy and quick to put up and take down which was useful, the black out I didn't think worked as good as it was decribed, it was dark to the point of needing a torch to see things clearly during the day, but you could manage with what natural light did actually get in. The tent also felt cooler than other tents during the day, but only slightly.
I purchased this tent before i did a trek in Snowdonia. i previously owed a 1 man coffin tent but found it unpractical when trying to change in the rain! This tent isnt the lightest on the market but by far the best value for money. They have a black out liner which even the boys expensive dont have.
FOR TWO PERSION THIS TENT IS PERFEST.
