Found 21st Apr 2015
Hope this is of interest to anyone looking for a tent for the summer hols/festivals.

Was looking about for new tent for this summer and popped into Go Outdoors in Inverness. Found the Cortes Octagon 8 which was the tent of the year winner in the Camping Magazine 2015 Editors Choice awards. Glad I didn't purchase there and then as went home, checked it on their online store and noticed they did a price match.

Found the tent at campmania.co.uk (http://www.campmania.co.uk/Item--0-cat-0-brand-5360-Coleman_Cortes_Octagon_8.aspx) for £194.99 so submitted a price match request on the Go Outdoors site. Received an email same day saying price challenge had been accepted at campmania price minus 10%. Instore/Online price £249.99, price match price £175.49. Took the email down to store today and purchased my new tent at the honoured price of £175.49. Here comes the science....

"Coleman's Cortes Octagon 8 is a large, roomy and very versatile tent that you can use as a huge sleeping space, dining area, event centre, party room, storage tent..... just about any way you choose.

Its outer flysheet can be pitched alone, giving you a spacious and comfortable shelter, or you can just pitch the inner for a bug-proof screen room. When you pitch both together, it makes a large bedroom tent that's spacious, dry, comfy and bug-free.

It gives you a full 360° view of your surroundings, and is sturdy enough to withstand wind and rain while keeping you sheltered inside - Coleman's 'WeatherTec' System ensures that you are protected and dry, and the 'Easy Set Up' System means that you'll spend less time pitching and more time having fun.

The ingenious hinged door makes entering and leaving the tent fuss-free, and it comes in a wheeled carry bag so it's easy to get around the campsite.
•Wind and rain tested
•Steel pole structure
•Total area 15.7m² "

Price back down to £199.00
Great tent with loads of room inside, took the wife and I 10 mins to put the tent up on a windy day. Only issue is that the outer fly sheet goes on last therefore not handy if erecting (giggety) when raining as inner tent may get wet. Despite that, purchase a tent carpet and this tent not does for camping holidays but is great for days out.

Thanks for this, just followed your advice and bought it for £174.99.

I just managed to get this for £166.49, they price matched jacksoncamping +10% off which is £184.99. Add £5 if you don't have their discount card. I was going to put a new post up, hopefully people see this. Bargain.
