2 man tent reduced to £6.00 in store at morrisons

Reduced again now down to £6. Reviews on Amazon say it's not really big enough for 2 people. Still fine as a 1man or as a storage tent (that's what I'm thinking of anyways for our next trip!)

Probably useful if you wanted to camp in Morrisons but I wouldn't be taking that outside.

As i was saying to my 20 year old as he failed to return from a festival with his tent claiming it got wet.
I had the same tent for 10 years of glastonbury, reading and phoenix festivals. I used to bring it home, wash it, dry it and put it away for the next one.

Kids today....

It's not worth it?

Is that all that matters to you? As long as YOU benefit you'll do it, if not then sod the rest of us, someone else will clean it up? If you honestly think packing a tent up is "stupid" then I hope for the rest of us you never breed.

I'd take that bet. Why, unless you're a clumsy pillock, would it not last more than one trip?

I bought one of these on Saturday. VERY small for two people and had to leave our bags outside, but fine for an overnight stay in good weather...

Do you think they'l accept my Hilleberg as a trade-in? ;)

Personally, I'd not even bother with this for a storage tent - you're much better off getting a pop-up for that type of thing.
If you're putting a storage tent together, why would you want to muck about with a single skin tent that you actually have to put together?

On the flip side, probably good for the kids to have a sleep-over in the garden on a warm summer night.

I would pay for one of these. Paper thin and they tear easily.

Bought one for the kids last year. They love playing in it in the garden. Certainly wouldn't use it for a camping trip

My 22 y/o has gone to a music festival for the past 6 years and has never brought a tent back yet! Or a sleeping bag....or camping mat. We just buy tents at this price after the festivals are over, and keep until next year. Previous good sources have been Asda and B&Q. A great source for sleeping bags was Tesco Direct who, at around this time, have had sleeping bags at knockdown prices. I bought 4 at £1.75 each! Also got camping mats last year from B&Q for £1. Just checked and none at good prices right now but worth keeping an eye on.

I remember my old man nagging me to wash and dry my tents so they didn't go mouldy when put away. Shameful how people don't value their stuff anymore really. Everything is disposable now. Apparently they collect hundreds of tents and sleeping bags after festivals now. http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2014/06/30/glastonbury-clean-up_n_5543331.html
A lot of the tents left are mint as well. The irony, especially with Glastonbury, supposed to be about the environment etc and being green, yet they leave 50000 sheets of coated nylon laying about to be buried.

Does my nut when I come away from festivals and see people ditching their tents / sleeping bags / chairs etc :(

You carried it there; how hard is it to pack it up again and take it home??

Anyway rant over...
#22
Well when you're hungover and a bit miserable the day after a festival, you don't want to be packing a tent up and lugging it all the way home. With tents so cheap nowadays, some people prefer to just leave them. Not that I encourage it.

Also, make sure to remember the difference between water-resistant and water-proof.

with the pop up tents the problem I have is the pack size. we've got them in but its a 2 foot circle, plus its £10. for £6 I'd go for this. also got a 2 litre kettle for £2.98 ☺

We used to have two sheets on the washing line to make a tent when I was little - loved playing tents! Picnics in the garden etc fantastic :)

http://www.southwestbusiness.co.uk/news/23072013095652-abandoned-glastonbury-tents-sold-to-raise-thousands-for-charity/
Tents left behind at Glastonbury Festival have been sold for charity. Around 120 tents which were abandoned at the event were sold during a fire safety day in Hayle, Cornwall on Saturday.
The tents, as well as 50 chairs, gazebos and inflatable mattresses, were cleaned by the firefighters before being sold at the town’s rugby club. Firefighters from Penzance, Camborne and Bodmin made a 320-mile round trip to Somerset last week when they collected the items.
A hire firm donated a van for the equipment to be transported back to the Duchy in time for the charity day.
Organiser Mike Glanville said almost £2,500 had been raised for the Fire Fighters Charity, through the sale. almost three times the amount of money they expected to raise.

It's not worth bringing these tents back from festivals, you really think that packing up a muddy wet cheap tent and carrying it miles to the car when you're nursing the mother of all hangovers to save £6 is worth it? have a word.

My son is far too lazy to actually clean and dry a tent - if he would bother to do so then he could have a far nicer tent but as things stand he would rather put up with a small, leaking tent then ditch it. His choice...(_;) If you look at the view over the campsite as T in The Park is finishing it's just a sea of abandoned tents, the scale is quite mind-boggling.

You'll be complaining in 10 years that you can't afford the deposit on a house. Yes 6 quid is worth it absolutely :) I could tell you about real hangovers being a festival veteran, and we managed it. :) I'll have 2 words cheers; man up :)

I have my own house, managed to save the deposit even by throwing out crap tents after one use, the mind boggles

Not really sure how national service will help? Does it make you stupid enough to spend an extra 15 mins packing up a crap tent and carrying it back as opposed to doing a tiny amount of overtime to cover the cost and binning the thing?

£6 x maybe 3 festivals a year x 10 years = £180...

That's one cheap ass house

+ sleeping bags, tent rolls, that's assuming each tent costs only £6. Most people would probably spend 20 on a tent. Plus I did say towards a deposit on a house. All adds up. What an awful wasteful attitude some folk have now. Shameful.
