Superb value for money, brilliant for wild camping / cycling / backpacking !
on 16 January 2015
I just bought this tent a second time in case it ever disappears off the market! When I bought it the first time, I was a bit hesitant because of the cheap price and I feared it might not be good quality. But I am very glad I bought it, it is excellent value for money!
I cycled once around the Irish coastline with this tent, often wild camping, but also stayed in campsites. Some of the nights were very windy and wet, but I always stayed 100% dry. I stayed very close to the sea all the time, sometimes camping right beside it, so some nights were indeed rather rough. One night at the edge of a cliff near the point of a peninsula was particularly windy. In fact, I could hardly sleep because I was afraid the wind would just blow the tent apart and I would suddenly lie there unprotected. But the tent survived even that night; it just looked a bit crooked in the morning.
After 50 days of using it every night, many of them camping in the wild, it is still in great condition.
In its green colour it blended in very well with any green fields or forests, making it perfect if I wanted to stay undiscovered when wild camping. It is quite small (really only for one person) but that also meant it was easy to find wild camping spots as you don't need much space for it. It packs up neatly and easily fitted into my pannier bag. It is lightweight making it great for a cycling or backpacking trip. Setting it up and taking it down is very quick, too.
All in all, it was an excellent choice and I would warmly recommend this tent to anyone!!
