Found 6th Mar
Great price for a 4 man tent in my humble opinion. Plenty in Exeter which is where I bought mine. Sorry I have no idea how to do this but if someone gets a bargain then it's worth a post

Is there a 1 man, 3 women version?

If yes, any deals on blue pills?

Good price for a decent-sized tent - thanks for sharing

"A tent made from 3000mm HH (Hydrostatic Head) can keep you perfectly dry for most camping in the UK."


Was just about to post the same, play tent for kids.
If you spend £50 on camping accessories (sleeping bags etc) you get any Halfords or Urban Escape tent half price.

I’ve recently purchased a tent with 2000HH. Is this adequate for use in spring and summer in the UK? Obviously weather/rain dependant but generally speaking just about good enough?
When its a 4 man tent, very very sexist... Also how big are they cause if you have two fellas who are 6ft 11 then its game over and lights out cause your not going to get anyone else in there unless you fancy a big toe in your mouth or ear when your asleep....and let's hope no one has eggy guffs when out camping....Nasty

It's a good starter tent and twin skinned too. Best to keep as a dry summer tent tho

Yeah, 2000HH is ample except in really bad weather from my experience. Should be seen as a minimum rating for leisure camping.

When yer tall you usually have to sleep diagonally anyways, might be 200-220 on the floor of many tents, but walls come in at angle obviously, so realistic sizing is a foot less than groundsheet size.
Thanks OP, ordered for a festival this year.
Was considering this for a UK festival (4days long) not sure whether to risk it with the low hydrostatic head though!

Should do the trick but to be safe I’d take a tarp and if it rains put that over the roof. Cheap way of keeping dry

Is there a tarp you'd recommend?
Edited by: "Eden0032" 6th Mar
Tarps aren't waterproof really, and would need suspended so as not to touch tent.

Iv used a tarp on an old tent of mine when it was raining bad and it worked fine. That was some years ago now tho
Edited by: "happyfeet0" 6th Mar
2-skin so it's probably not too bad despite the 1500mm HH. Probably takes the standard British camping weather (some rain) just not great in a torrential downpour. Probably inadvisable to keep anything that needs to stay completely dry (electronics etc) in the middle bit though.

You can always spray the tent with waterproofer. It works pretty well, I find. Nikwax or Fabsil.

How is it sexist ? It's a measure of size not of usage. Do you have an issue with manhole covers too ?
Tents!? Woohoo... Summer begins...!
These tents are really good for the price and can withstand a UK festival or two.

I've gone through 2 of these in about 5 years, taking them to quite a few wet festivals (about 7-8 in total).
4 man tent? Sounds like a gay ol' time.
Depends if you're into that sort of thing I guess brs98

Am off to download with one of these, in you're experience how well do these hold up?
I saw his and waited. Sold out now in most places. Gutted
