I am writing this review after returning from Family Camping trip in the foot hills of Himalayas. This tent is one of the best tent I have ever seen and experienced. The Size is perfect for 4 adults and as we were 2 adults and 2 kids the space was plenty for us. We have a Pet GSD dog and the entire living area was his to enjoy and indeed he was guarding us.
We were camping in a place called Jot Pass and at around mid night there was thunderstorm and wind was so powerful that my family got afraid and we decided to move to our car as we felt it not safe, as the tent was pitched in a place which had valley in both the sides. As we were shifting to car we noticed that there was one more tent (8 Pax tent) which was collapsed . So feeling that we made the right choice we stayed in the car for rest of the night leaving the tent in its place. The entire night it rained a lot and wind was even more powerful than what we felt while we were in tent. We were informed later that it common in that place to experience such an extreme weather as it was a mountain pass. In the morning I returned to the camp site thinking that I may see a collapsed tent or worst a missing tent. To my surprise the Tent was intact, It looked like nothing had happened the entire night, where as the other Tent was completely collapsed even though it was re pitched twice in the night. I regretted that I didn't stayed in it the entire night ;-). This one hell off a tent and worth every penny of it.
The only one small problem I experienced in it, that during strong wind and rain the water enters the living area. And one of the pole stem was cracked which may have caused due to the strong wind. But these drawbacks will not make me to give anything lower than 5 star.
I am purchasing Decathlon product from last 10 Year both in France and India, and will keep buying more.
Thank you Decathlon for such a great and quality products.
Bought this as a smaller tent for little dad camping trips with my boys as our family tent is too big for overnight trips. The tent is really good quality and easy to get up, the space inside is great. Used it to test in the garden overnight and we had some heavy rain and hail but were all snug inside. Easily fit for sleeping bags in the bedroom too.
Could have done with the option for a footprint as getting it down on wet grass once the inside is out means it laying on the grass and getting wet inside.
So I'd recommend getting a tarp and laying it under it will make it much easier and cleaner to take down in anything other than totally dry conditions.
So Ive ordered one off eBay :).
Very happy with my new tent :)
Decent enough tent until the rain & wind comes then the flap on the roof of the porch lets water in, woke up to a puddle of water in our seating area now we're home going to have to look into stitching the flap over a bit
I was really impressed with my purchase from start to finish. The staff were excellent and very helpful. The tent came when it was supposed to and even though I have not used the tent yet I'm sure it will be of good quality. I would definitely buy from your store again
Excellent service, quickly delivery, brilliant price, we've been looking at these tents or a while after seeing some whilst camping. They're a good height so no stooping, a lovely sized living area and nice size bedroom bit. Defo recommend .
Great tent easy to put up and a really useful living area. We had torrential rain and high winds during our weekend trip and the tent held up really well when people around us were having all sorts of problems with their tents leaking
Used this for V festival and a camping trip with our children, was a fantastic purchase and easy to set up!
A great tent that we've use for our second season now. Proved sturdy in high winds and horizontal rain. Spacious front, and at 6'2, I can stand up in. It's an ideal size for 2 people. For the price It couldn't be faulted. 2 years of use (about 8 weekends and 2 weeks) and it's only just started to leak. No doubt a little waterproofing will fix that.
I bought this tent for my 8 year old son and myself to use for the occasional break.
we came to Scarborough this week. The tent was up and readt to use in under an hour with just me putting it up.( with a little help from my son) The youtube instruction video is the best way to see how it goes, as the instructions on the storagr bag are not upto much.
we have had a lot of rain through the nights and it has stayed bone dry inside.
Today we had a good 2 hour downpour which left most of our site flooded. This tent stayed steomg and again dry inside.
There is loads of space inside for 2 but i feel it may be a bit tight as a 4 person tent.
looking forward to our next outing
I am a 61 year old woman with years of camping experience... I can erect this tent on my own and have the kettle on inside an hour. It is large enough for my 2 grandchildren and me ... I absolutely love it and would recommend it to anyone!
