Easy to put up, I have managed it on my own with no problem in about 15 mins. Make sure the outer is stretched out properly and pegs in on an angle and that should avoid any contact between the inner/outer which is what causes leaks most of the time.
Very spacious will easily accommodate 3 people with backpacks, etc.
Very lightweight/compact for a 4 man tent.
Most importantly, extemely weather resistant - I have just come back from 5 days/4 nights at Kendal Calling - a festival in the Lake District, we had Thunderstorms and 3 days of torrential rain and a few strong gusts of wind over the weekend. Admittedly I had waterproof sprayed it as I was expecting poor weather (£5 spray so not too much of an additional cost). Not one leak, which few of my friends could say about their own tents and the tent poles held up well against the wind.
I've bought several tents over the years, this is without a doubt the best I've bought for the price.
It is indeed a fabulous little tent. Easy to pick out in the sea of other tents I was surrounded by at Reading Festival.
However, it did not withstand the rain. After a rainy Sunday of watching amazing bands I returned to my tent. Knelt down in the middle and water pooled towards me. I had taken great pains to ensure I had set it up properly too. Using all the guy lines etc.
I will still use this tent again. I have purchased a tent waterproofing product that I know works. If you intend to get this tent it will need some waterproofing first.
Update: this tent has now survived Download 2019. After spraying with waterproof spray on arrival. My tent stayed dry inside the whole weekend. Even though it rained pretty much all the time. And it survives gain for another festival. Yay
Had it for three years now - it's been battered by the kids, and survived the worst wind and rain at a recent festival. (It was one of the few tents left standing after 50mph wind and rain!). Buy this tent, but replace the crap elastic peg tensioners with decent rubber ones, and replace the cheap black guy ropes with decent luminous ones (especially for drunken festival usage) - job done.
So correct instructions are:
The green and grey is the top section, put it to one side. The section with the base and mesh panels is the main tent section and is supplied with a series of plastic hooks. These are the correct form of attachment and not tubes. So assemble the two longest poles and put the third shorter pole down for use later. Use the two poles in a crossing over diagonally to each other orientation and place all the plastic clips along each pole in that diagonal crossed pole formation. There is a central tie to hold the poles to, at the ceiling point of the tent so tie that up.
At the far end of tent (not door end) there will be attached to tent corner only one metal hook and the door end has 2 metal hooks. Insert the left far tent corners metal hook into one pole and the far right hand tent corner into the other pole. Now insert the first poles other end into one of the right front end of tent (door) metal hook and the pole will now be forming an arch which will be wonky at this point. Now do the other pole, where it crosses over the first and is inserted into the front left of the door of the tent using one of the metal hooks. You now have a tent shape. Now get the green and grey top layer, and starting at the far end, drape it over but only up to the point of the first set of ties. Tie them to the poles, then drape a bit further till next set of ties and so on.
Now insert the door pole into the sole tube the tent comes with, forming an archway.
Finally secure the tent to the ground by means of the metal prongs at each point at the ground level, and using the black string tethers tie the top of each to a loop on the tent sides, with more metal prongs. The black string ties have a special sliding mechanism part way along them to tighten them once this is done by moving the plastic bar upward towards the tent, but if you find it is not tightening you chose the wrong loop of the string to insert on the tip of the metal prong so just swap with another of the loops and trial and error will solve this.
The actual tent is ok but I'm not sure the instructions relate to it at all given the wide references to things not present, and they said it's not designed for very wet weather, so at this point I'm not sure if it's ok for rain or not. I bought it thinking from description it was, as has double skin, but the instructions said otherwise, so I'm saying not, at this point until proven otherwise in use that it's usable in wet weather.
It was large enough for a large double air mattress, with plenty of room on the sides for luggage or a third person or child.
There are vents at the top which can be secured down or left open to allow ventilation. The doorway has side flanges to allow further use for things like chairs and cooking or washing areas, and to form a bit of a garden territory and wind shelter when entering and exiting.
I do hope they improve the instructions to refer to the actual tent sent.
