1.0 out of 5 stars Not for sleeping in!, 4 July 2011
This review is from: Gelert Quick Pitch Elite 2 Man Tent (Sports)
I took this tent to a festival over the weekend. Easy to pitch and put away, but didn't keep me warm or dry....

I was able to put all my stuff in the tent after pitching it in a mere 5 minutes. My luggage included a medium sized trolly case, sleeping bag, backpack and hand bag. After a scorching hot day at the festival I returned to find the inside completely soaked with condensations despite leaving the ventilation flaps open. The condensation was inside AND outside the surface of the tent and all over my luggage and sleeping bag.

Considering it was so hot during the day, by night time it was freezing cold. Despite a sleeping bag, sleeping in fleece pjs and wrapping myself in a towel, this tent did little to keep me warm and I felt ill with the cold. By morning I was completely soaked with the condensation and was completely fed up with it. I dumped my tent and was glad to see the back of it.

I would strongly suggest getting a more expensive tent with an inner sheet for festival goers. Well worth it and you will get a half decent night's sleep - which is more than I did!
