Top critical review
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 3 July 2019
I bought this based on all the glowing reviews and have just had a weekend away camping in it...
Well, the best I can say is that it 'did the job' but that's about it.
It came with no instructions whatsoever so it took me a bit of head-scratching and YouTube video searching to realise that upon popping it up, you have to disconnect the four poles from each other to allow it to open, which had me baffled for a while!
It was very difficult to peg down as the breeze where I was kept blowing it about but I eventually did it, although one of the poles broke its fabric tether to the tent, which meant I had to actually drive a tent peg through the corner fabric of the tent itself, and that corner of the tent was collapsing inwards. I had to use a large container of water inside that corner of the tent to weight it down there and keep it supported.
The tent pegs are very flimsy and all bent.
The zips on the mesh doors kept sticking and catching which required quite a lot of fiddly untangling from the surrounding fabric.
Fortunately, the weather was warm and sunny as, judging by daylight I could see through the seams in the tent, I think the rain would have come in very easily.
The pros of this tent are that it does have 2 doors, both with mesh as well, so you can ventilate without the bugs getting in, as well as a meshed roof-vent, and a hook to hang a light. Also, it pops up easily and folds down into a very compact bag.
As for the size, it's do-able for one person, would be 'cosy' for 2 very well-acquainted people, but I don't know how it can be sold as a 3-man, let alone 4-man tent!
Also, it is not 150cm high at all! It's more like 100-110cm.
As I say, I survived in it but it's only fit for the bin now really.....
