I'm not a big reviewer but it seemed only fair to give this tent its due. It's first use was at Glastonbury 2011, and this was my experience:
1) Packed / Pitching
Bag is an excellent size and weight, fine for carrying by hand or shoving in your backpack.
The pitching instructions are attached as a waterproof sheet inside the bag, which is handy. However, they could be slightly more friendly! Common sense helps a lot of the way but indeed is not immediately quick to follow first time round.
It took 2 of us (I would be impressed if spmebody managed alone) about 20 minutes to get it sorted. The confusion comes with the varying hoops and hooks on both the outer and inner tent, the annoying guide ropes (the only poor quality aspect of the parts in my opinion), and of course in ensuring the outer has the right amount of tension to accommodate the inner without it flopping inside.
A few adjustments were needed post-pitch but once we worked it out it was fairly solid in shape and definitely holding itself up without concern.
Door is a tiny bit small but this is easily overcome when you have muddy wellies by pulling off clever entrance/exit moves. The great thing about the doors is that there are actually three. One on the flysheet, one on the inner tent, and a mosquito net. This allows you to have a tiny bit more control of climate which is good for varying times of day/night.Read more ›
I wouldnt use this tent in serious weather, or in winter in the mountains - it's one pole construction would not take it (I'll keep my Vango force 10 for that), but for lowland and summer backpacking it's great. I can't see it lasting for years on end, if you were a serious long distance backpacker you would probably be going geodesic anyway, but for the odd night here and there I can't see how it can be beat (maybe the Gelert Monsoon?).
Are you are toying between the Gelert Solo and this like I was? I bought both, both are great, but as I am tall this is far better - more room, I can sit up in the middle and lie full length, no problem. For the thirty quid I paid - it's great, couldn't be happier.
Recommended - just travel very light!
It's a fly first pitch. It's really easy to put up - it doesn't take a whole lot of time, effort and skill to master this tent. Perfect for my lil Brother! :D It's lightweight and doesn't take up a lot of space once packed down. Feels fairly sturdy, but I don't know how it'd fair in bad weather. There is a bit of gap between the fly sheet and inner tent so it has a good amount of ventilation. The tent is also just as easy to take down. Plenty of pockets and a place to hang your light.The sleeping space ideally is for one person. Two people on roll mats may just fit at a squeeze, perhaps some room for the kit too. I doubt an air mattress or a couple of camp beds would though. I'm about 5ft 3 and could lay in the tent without my head and feet touching either side from laying central. So, it's recommended for one average sized adult or two children with belongings. Keep in mind that there is no porch space for storage either, so may want that extra space inside the tent. Though there is a small gap between the fly and inner bit to fit wellies. The door is an o.k. size but if returning to camp while slightly more than tipsy it may become an issue when climbing in. Or if you're clumsy.
For the price, it is a good little tent and if no one else has one at the campsite, it's easy to recognize too.

Bought this for wild camping. Very light to carry, easy to put up and doesn't need a lot of space to pitch. Enough room for me, a large rucksack and still room to move. Read morePublished on 8 Oct. 2012 by J. K. Tuaim
