I had bought a different tent from another store that was $60 down from $80 and it was big, heavy and very hard to set up :(
I took it back and got a refund, I then saw this tent for $25 on sale and I fell in love. When packed away it was small, compact and light. Set up was a piece of cake and it's big to fit in. Fits me, my gear and some extra room!
If it wasn't on sale I would've still been amazed with the $50 dollar price. Heck, I would of been amazed with it being $70!!
Absolutely recommend it for beginners or quick get-awayers!
This is a great little tent, easy to set up, compact and light but quite spacious inside! It's also cheap which makes it even better! Already buying 3 more for a Scout unit!
Top little tent for a quick getaway.
- 2 min to pitch once we cleared away the branches
- 'T' door access easy to zip up with confidence of no insects
- Sturdy in the wind and rain.
- Plenty of room for 2 adults (one 6'/180cm)
- Designed to spend most time outdoors. Always bring a pack of cards in case of rain.
We setup in a local National Park and took a few days to traverse a well known track. At one point we were half running to get to the campsite as the first signs of rain were falling. One of us cleared away the branches from the ground and the other got the tent out. Easy to setup with 2 poles. Fly up next, open door, packs in, we're in, zip up, and the heavens opened. That's a real measure of how good a tent is... simple and quick!
We did some day trekking and walked out a couple of days later. Great fun!
