Great tent

Ive just used this for a 2 night trip and couldnt be happier. Bought to replace a cheap tent that I bought out of Decathalon a few years ago and has seen better days. This is so much better and really handy to have the inner attached when pitching (with footprint). I like the option to enter/exit either side and excited to get out wild camping again.


Excellent tent, comfortably accommodating two people. It features porch areas on each side for storing packs and boots. Weighing around 5 lbs, it boasts sturdy aluminum poles and is quick and easy to set upeither as an all-in-one or fly-first, ideal for dividing the tent between two packs. The tent includes reliable pegs, exhibiting strength in windy conditions. While I haven't tested it in snow, the low-flying fly and raised tub suggest it should fare well in minimal drifting.

I recommend investing in the footprint, ensuring that items in the porches remain elevated. Personally, I fit one large and one standard Topo Neo-air inside. Addressing potential condensation on the outer, a quick wipe with a small sponge before packing proves effective. Ensuring a separation between the inner and fly eliminates damp issues.

The groundsheet handles dampness decently, showing minimal effects on very wet groundespecially with the footprint. Zips function well, with the fly opening from both the bottom and top. Care must be taken to avoid trapping the outer, though there's a Velcro-fastened fly over the outer zips.

The tent is semi-free standing, and while I rarely peg out the guys, stabilizing the outer requires pegging. Inside, there's enough room to sit up, thanks to steep walls, and a loop is available for securing your torch. Two internal pockets are positioned at either end.

Setup and takedown each take a few minutes, facilitated by the bag's compression straps and wide opening. Would purchase again!

Incredible value

Well worth it for the price! So much better quality than cheaper brands out there. Plenty of space and easy to pitch. Can't recommend highly enough

Waterproof tent!

We had this tent out in torrential rain and it never leaked once. After heavy downpour it lasted a full day of light rain and kept us dry. So absolutely love this tent for that. Not the lightest tent available but more room and storage of gear and general comfort is worth the extra weight for a more liveable space (especially if you get caught in the rain and stuck inside it for hours!). Easy to pitch and take down, packs away conveniently into the storage bag unlike some I’ve had, which have been a real struggle to get back in. Overall, this tent is excellent and we’re very happy with :)

Top quality tent for wild camping

I did a lot of research before finally deciding on this tent for a wild camping trip in the Lake District. And now that I’m back I’m happy to say that I wasn’t disappointed. There’s a reason this tent wins awards and used on DofE… highly recommend!
