Seems like a bargain – I was looking for a tent which isn't going to leak in normal use (which for me means festivals, mostly) and is big enough for 2/3 people, with a built-in groundsheet and preferably big enough to stand up in. This fulfils those criteria, and has a sizeable living space as well as the sleeping area. From the reviews I've read it also seems like it's easy to put up and take down.

I saw this tent posted on HUKD through an ebay seller at £70.98 including delivery, and was tempted. But I checked Amazon and discovered that it's a tenner cheaper there, so I ordered one last night. Note: Amazon have dropped their price by a couple of quid since I posted this, so I updated the price.

Thanks simplyjimbo. The 3rd party price is a couple of pounds cheaper once you add on postage of £4.99, but I decided that I'd prefer to buy from Amazon. Still it's a good way to save even more.

Thanks wagamamaluva. Now I wish I'd waited till this morning (although maybe the price wouldn't have dropped without alive, and possibly others, buying it?)

I've edited the price. Hope that's the done thing.

No worries. Amazon yo yo prices every minute. Doubt it will get any cheaper, but you never know. ;)

The page of reviews which I linked to includes a floor plan which might help.

Not the same model but I've got a Gelert Horizon 6 (cost £200 a couple of years ago, so slightly higher budget) and it's dealt with some absolute downpours admirably, has some nice features and is easy to put up. If I needed a 2 person (or 2 adults 1 child) tent I wouldn't dismiss this one - some of the Gelert gear is very good VFM.

Went for this for Glasto :) Bought a good pop up one last time but it broke when we were putting it away! This seems brilliant though! Still selling for £120 or more in other shops!
zackkilmer#19
it says built in groudsheet but also selling a groudsheet you can buy separately ? confused

Amazon price back up to £128.40 so plumped for third party seller. Not sure why as I have no need for it! Darn you HotUkDeals for another impulse purchase!
