I purchased this tent for tenting out on a motorbike. It's a brilliant tent that can be used free standing albeit with the loss of the two vestibule/entrance areas. Pegged out, even without the guys attached, this is a very solid structure with some useful room under the vestibules which housed my backpack, motorcycle boots, jacket and trousers away from my sleeping area. There's just enough room to run jet boil in the vestibule but you have to be very careful near the outer skin not to burn it.
I had it pitched in variable weather with some intermittent heavy rain for short periods of less than an hour. The tent was absolutely watertight throughout. I slept through a 1-2 degree Celsius night and I was dry in the morning as all seemed condensate free in the sleeping area.
I've been looking at buying another slightly larger tent, I can't find anything as well rounded in features for even double the price. It looks like I'm going to have to spend over £300 to do better.
Only negative is I can see people struggling getting the second pole in to finish the main errection of the frame, I'm strong and I had to give it some welly. Anyone thats not nails like me will struggle as some reviewers have mentioned.
I bought this tent for camping in Scotland. I've used it for 9 days, mostly car-camping with the occasional wild camp and it was ideal. We took it down and moved to a new location every day and it was so quick to put up and take down that this wasn't a chore - a couple of minutes at most even with just one person. The only difficult bit is putting the second end of the two poles into their rubber cap which is a really tight fit - it's easy with two people but really hard with just one. It packs away really quickly and is just about light enough to hike and wild camp with. It kept us dry in very heavy rain and the porch areas were great for keeping our boots dry as well. It's also very wind resistant, and midge proof. It also has handy pouches storing little things in overnight and hooks for hanging a light etc. It is a really well thought out tent and absolutely the best value tent in that price range.
bought this 3 man to replace an old 2 man tent and that little bit extra room makes all the difference.As the title suggests quick to erect after watching the video carefully & folds down quite small.Only niggle is that it can drip very slighty when the door is opened after raining but otherwise a clever & well thought out product.
