Not voted but it’s the same price in Millets / Blacks / ultimate outdoors


I’ve only had a quick browse but seems good price for an 8 man tent.

Are Millet/Blacks/ultimate outdoors the camping equivalent of Very/littlewoods all part of the same group?

Sorry I don’t know diddly squat about camping But festival season is upon us

Local army surplus has large mess tents for £20. I bought some in March and used the material as ground sheets on the allotment. They've been great at keeping the weeds down and the moisture locked in during the dry Summer.

Yes their all part of the same company. Also this tent is only good for light showers. Wouldn’t go for a tent with only 2000hh. Has to be 3000hh
We have the elite version of this, it is an excellent tent with loads of room.

Might drop later in the season then, could be worth waiting if your not in a rush for one I guess

But if you’ve missed it this isn’t a bad price as far as I can see.

People might now flood the thread now with cheaper one’s they’ve found which would be great as I’ve said campings not my field

No worries
id recommend paying the extra for the elite as it has a sewn in groundsheet. I had the classic but leaked on first use so I exchanged it for the elite, never had a issue with it. elite is easier to put up too

Seemed more of a passive aggressive response from yourself ovverbruv.

What happyfeet said was perfectly correct. Most people start with a cheap tent, this is a big tent for the price and is great for starting out. However ovverbruv, there clearly is a difference in quality between vango/outwell and this tent. The HH is only 2000 on this, 4000 is average on vango/outwell tents and most of vango/outwell tents are 5000-6000HH. Furthermore this will be very thin material, whereas Vango/Outwell tents tend to be made of 150/420D fabric which will make the tent last significantly longer.

This is a good tent for the price, but you get what you pay for with quality, this would be fine for someone starting out, but if you use it regularly don't expect it to last more than a couple of seasons.
So many tent experts in this thread. Loving the read.
This year I spent £1400 on a 6 person Vango Serenity inflatable beam tent. Total waste of money but hopefully it’ll last a good few years - and the bedrooms are much bigger.
Rather opt for 2xHalfords 4 men tent for £10 each posted last week.

Sold out online but some stores may have stock left
Bought this tent a few years back. Really flimsy, not worth it even at this price. Would definitely not recommend.
I have the classic 6 as new for sale in stockport area

Why I was it a waste of money ? Do you mean it was expensive for a tent or that it is not a good tent ? I’m thinking of getting an Outwell or Vango family sized tent to sleep at least 4 (5man probably) and my mate has a Outwell Nevada which seems great.
