Just been in store and picked up a first time tesco direct voucher code. So you can use this to take the price down by a further £10:

Very good price, not sure I'd want to stay in there with 5 other people though. We have a 6 person Sunncamp that it quite a bit bigger than this & wouldn't want more than 4 at once in mine. Would be perfect for a small family wanting to try camping, heat added.

I've actually bought it for just me and my other half. We have a Gelert Horizon 8 which we used for family camping trips, but now it's just us so we don't need such a big tent. I think it's perfect for small families - I wouldn't put 6 people in it. Then again, I wouldn't put 6 people in most 6 person tents! lol

Hmmm I'm looking for a large tent for some festivals and this price is very good. Very tempting

I think the best things are the living space and the fact that you can stand up in it! 2000 HHR isn't bad, either (it will keep the rain out). Also, Gelert is a reputable make.

bought this tent last month using the £10 off voucher for my teenage kids in the garden, it is ample big enough for six in the sleeping area, probably wouldn't want to do a whole week in there with more than 4 as apart from the living area there is no other storage
#7
Picked one of these up a few weeks back with the £10 off voucher. For sub £50 its a great buy. Going to use it for festivals for 4 people (2 per room) - standing room and the living area is a great bonus, especially if it rains...

Wow seems like a really good buy to me, shame I've brought a tent all ready
#9
Already posted a few weeks ago, ceebs finding the link
#10
Like others here, I bought it for £50 last week via syzable's(?) Tesco camping thread using the £10 off for new accounts.
Planned to put it up today but rain put paid to that. I'll need to get a dummy run in before Cambridge weekend.

My only slight worry is the colour. I was hoping that the colour in the pics online were lighter than the real thing but when I opened the outer carton the tent bag is representative of those online pics and the tent bags nowadays are usually the same colour as the tent itself.
I was hoping for something more like a darker Olive finish. I can live with it though at the price paid. :)

Should also be a wee bit quicker to put up than my existing Vis a Vis which has 4 poles compared to 3 on this one.

Just been in store and found a new Tesco Direct first time customers code, so added it to my original post. Means you can still get this for £49.98 (and less if you get cashback through TCB or Quidco too). Code is also now on the vouchers board, as it can be used for any spend over £50 in TD.

That 6 pic link is brill Prufrock as more images can be found if you scroll down to the 2nd pic on that page which has a rotating scroll bar underneath with loads more pics that give a great impression of what you get.
You can also translate the page to get more specific info than on the Tesco site.

One difference that I spotted; Tesco state a 2000 Hydrostatic Head, while the German site states 3000. They could be manufactured differently but I doubt it, so we may actually have a plus on the HH as Tesco often get their specs wrong. :)

3 weeks and 6 hours ago to be precise, so all good. ;)


Maybe an idea to spend a little less time counting when other peoples deals are posted and post some of your own - member for 5 years not one single solitary deal that's pretty lazy.................

Hey Showoffman, did someone ruffle your feathers today?
I was actually backing up Prufrocks opinion that her(?) deal was entitled to be posted as she started by saying "As far as as I am aware", which implied uncertainty. Didn't you notice the wink icon in my reply.

Some people post deals, others don't but contribute in other ways such as trying to help inform others in as polite a manner as possible (mostly). :)
It's not a prerequisite of site membership to post deals. Please point me to the rule that says otherwise.
Showman indeed!

Jock - This site thrives on people posting deals.As far as I'm concerned if you don't post deals your not a great help to the community,there are far too many members(and I'm not including you in this) who seem to take a perverse pleasure in shooting down deals which have been posted with good intentions these people are great at commenting and criticising other people deals but never contribute anything apart from their rapier like wit (or more usually lack of it.)

I'm not a prolific poster of deals but I've done my bit and if I see something I do take the time to post it here.As I said in my earlier post if you can take the time to look up the exact time it's been since a deal was last posted surely you could take the time to post the odd deal in five years.

While I've been a member I've seen this site grow hugely but unfortunately due to this the amount of people on here who can hardly string a whole sentence together has grown as well.

Of course these are only my personal opinions and are only as valid as the next members are.

I ordered this to store at £59.95 and thought I'd got a bargain. I then read about the £10 voucher on here, called Tesco and they credited it back.
It's a lot of tent for £50....I set it up today as a practice run and it's sweet! I'm 6'3" and can stand up in the living area fine. Good bargain hunting dudes and dudettes!!

Snowman, go and melt into the background, I simply don't care what concerns you and as far as I'm concerned, helping people out in various threads whenever I can is my way of contributing to the site.

What gives you the right to criticise me when I was simply backing up what a fellow member posted in the thread with solid figures re timings of the other deal posted previously for the same item. This was done purely to back up what that person stated, nothing more, nothing less. Just because I don't post deals doesn't mean that I don't have the right to comment on them.

1) I posted something informative.
2) It was not insulting in any way whatsoever.
3) There was no logic to your intervention whatsoever.
4) You perceived criticism of the OP when there was none.

I just noticed that the post from me that offended you so much has conveniently disappeared from this thread. Was that down to you Noman? Here it is pasted in for the benefit of any onlookers; "3 weeks and 6 hours ago to be precise, so all good.";) < In reply to post number 13.
I don't think anybody else would see much wrong with that post, especially with the wink icon.

Thanks for the real life info re the head height. :)
I still haven't managed to put mine up yet because of the rain.
Hopefully at the weekend.

Raining again today so couldn't put the tent up but decided to have a look at it instead.

I have a slight suspicion that I may be in possession of a returned tent, or it may have just been packaged poorly from the start but I don't want to return it if my fears are unfounded.

Can someone who has erected it compare their findings to the following points?

The first thing I noticed is that the two ribbon ties around the rolled up body of the tent in the bag both have a frayed edge along their full length and are different colours. One grey and one fawn. Very unusual.

The second, is that the tent was fairly crudely rolled up and not the way I've been presented with new tents in the past. Almost the same as the condition you would find it in after the last time you used it and put it back in the bag.

Thirdly; Although the tent specs state, it all goes up in one go, my bedroom was packaged separately. (not attached to the flysheet)

Fourth; The poles had slight scuff marks at the joins as if they had been assembled though this may have been caused by a test assembly before packing.

Fifth; There was no tent repair kit, though this wasn't stated in the specs anyway.

On the plus side;
I unrolled it indoors to its full length, then as space permitted, opened a fold to the left & right and it looked clean, no bits of grass etc,.
The end of the poles had no soil marks inside and the ring pins were clean.
Everything that was stated as 'contents' was there.

Thanks for any info provided. :)

No repair kit with these. Sounds normal, not the easiest to get back in bag after being up.

HOT. Ordered last Wednesday. Picked up Friday 4.30pm. Put up at 7pm in light rain. Excellent tent for money. Make sure grey coded pole is use for the back of the tent as it is the smallest out of the 3. Instructions not as clear as they could be. The only major problem is inserting and removing the poles. Hastily, pushing /pushing the poles into position could damage the tent.

Brilliant for 2 people. Good for 4. Doable for 6.

Good to read your happy with the tent Steve.
If you have a spare 5 minutes, could I ask you to comment on my first 3 points in my post above? Thanks :)

I can only put my tent up on a dry day as I'll have to take it down again and re-bag it straight away. I want to surprise the missus when we first use it at Cambridge in 2 weeks.

Hopefully someone else will provide a bit more info to numbers 1 & 2 pasted below, in bold.
Thanks for answering number 3 anyway and previously number 5. :)

Hi, I've tried to order this but the price is 119 pounds does anyone. Know why?
#31
Now £119.96 - Not such a bargain!
#32
I bought one at the discounted price. Gelert had forgotten to sew any of the elastic loops in to the left hand side of the tent that you peg down. Had to take it back after a week as we nearly tool off :(
