The SATURN 6 is a roomy 6-berth family tent which is quick and easy to erect and at the same time offers greatest protection, even in high winds. The 200 cm peak height allows best possible freedom of movement and the generous living area provides ample space for all your belongings, a cosy retreat for the family on cooler evenings or extra sleeping space for unexpected guests. The sewn-in groundsheet offers protection from draughts, damp and also unwanted creepy-crawlies. The breathable inner tent material helps keep the climate inside the tent comfortable and mesh on the sleeping pod and main entrances keeps out any unwelcome midges. The side entrance can be kept open using the upright poles included, creating a useful sunshade and at the main entrance the porch area offers a sheltered retreat or extra storage area. Handy extras include a hook in the roof to hang a camping lantern and a skylight window in the roof which provides extra light. The numerous doors and windows make the tent extremely bright and airy and the generous sleeping pod has a central divider which can be rolled down to make two separate sleeping areas. The SATURN 6 offers a fantastic 5,000 mm water column, giving you and your family excellent protection from even the nastiest of British weather. The water column describes the quality and strength of the waterproofing of a tent and 5,000 mm is the highest available quality for family tents; most tents offer 3,000 mm or lower. The poles are strong, yet flexible and made of shatter-proofed fibreglass. The two upright poles for the entrance are made of steel.
Your home on vacation!
Saturn is a great tent for your group or family vacation.
Offers a very large living space and complete insect protection for living and sleeping space. The sewn in tent floor offers many benefits:
Many lovely details such as the e.g. magazine holder are evidence of the outstanding functionality.
One highlight of the tent is the sky window. This skylight allows plenty of light to enter without others being able to see into the tent.
The tent has a floor space of approx. 23 m². Enough room for 6 people! And so high only the very tall will have to worry about bending or crawling. The many doors and windows allow plenty of light to enter the common area. The windows on the sides consists of air-permeable mosquito netting and the windows on the front are made of transparent PVC. This clever combination ensures the interior is always breezy and bright.
Breathable inner tent material - ideal for allowing fresh air in. And this means the tent has an ideal climate in all weathers!
Extra resilient water column. The water column describes the quality and strength of the tent coating: the higher the water column, the more water resistant the coating ( ...and the higher the price). A tent is considered waterproof at 1,200 mm (47.2"), but the difference between this and higher levels becomes obvious as soon as it rains heavily.
The Saturn model provides a 5,000 mm (196") water column thanks to innovative PU-coated polyester, which also makes the tent UV-resistant and particularly weather resistant.
The tent comes in a handy pack complete with numerous accessories such as guy lines, stakes, and assembly instructions.
Have fun camping with your friends and family!

I really LOVE this tent.
Only criticism is that there is nowhere on the sides to tie the guy ropes to the tent (that I could find) so I tied them to the poles. Take note of the weight as I find it very heavy, and it also takes up a lot of room in the car (but worth it!).
2014 Edit, it has started leaking at each end of the sunroof. Not a massive amount and it's ok if I put towels under it, but irritating.
Due to the inspiration and good tent design of my bigger Skandika tent, I decided to check out the 4 and 6 man skandika tents. There is quite a choice from the Gotland to the Cavern and many differently named tents inbetween. I have to say all of them look great and most have that unique but essential piece of British camping need a porch!!!
For short camping trips you need something lighter (the Nimbus tent bag and pole bag are large and heavy), so something smaller and easily thrown into the car and pitched within 30 minutes is a god send.
To be honest, like my Nimbus, I decided to try my luck on ebay for either a Cavern or Saturn Skandika tent. The Saturn had the bigger porch but the Cavern was a bit smaller and probably easier to assemble. Strangely the same thing happened to me when I bid for the Nimbus. I was outbid on the Saturn, and then the buyer pulled out, so the tent went back on for bidding. I won it, so it was obviously meant to be, Skandika tents are my type of tents. It has been used and there is some repairs by the previous owner, but still this tent holds its own.
As mentioned before the best feature of all the skandika tents are the porches. For British weather you need a space to put wet gear and keep the inside of the tent dry and relatively clean. Clearly delignated spaces when in the great outdoors keeps tidying and mess to a minimum - something you have to consider when camping with a dog and a bloke with OCD!!!Read more ›
I had not heard of Skandika before, as they are a German company, but it arrived from Germany within 48hrs. I would definitely recommend it to any family looking for a high-quailty, spacious tent.
I'm now trying to buy new tent poles to give it another chance, but it has made me very wary, the weather had not been that bad, the tent was correctly erected, we are experienced campers, and no other tent seemed to suffer the same fate....
Pretty devastating to be honest. I hope that Skandika are going to offer advice, but am awaiting a response to my email... further post if I get a reply.
We bought this tent last summer with a view to going on family camping trips. We decided, very wisely with hindsight, to practice in the back garden. I was confident that I would be able to put it up with no problems, after all, the youtube video made it look so easy! My son and I struggled for 2 hours and eventually had to give in and ask my husband for help. He was very smug about this as he had said the video was probably over-simplified. And I really don't like to be wrong!
Anyhow, eventually we got the tent up. The ground in our back garden is quite soft and the pegs supplied with the tent are not up to the job at all. My sons decided to sleep in it for the night but we were awoken by my 7 year old son telling us that the tent was "collasping" So all boys had to come back in to their own beds.
We put it up again the next day and it stayed up for three days. However, on the third day, my husband and I were sitting in our kitchen having a cup of tea, when we saw the tent rise up like a kite, only being held down by two of the guy ropes, again the pegs supplied did not stay in the ground.
I am informed by experienced campers that what I need are plastic pegs for the groundsheet and delta pegs for the guys.Read more ›
