Eurohike are ok. 15 years ago we used a Eurohike tent for the Duke of Edinburgh expeditions. It withstood 3 trips of mistreatment and general abuse. They're kinda like the Vauxhall Astra of tents. Not very fancy but they work.

Not to be that guy, but people always place far too much importance on the HH rating.
The quality of seam sealing is far more important. There are plenty of Chinese tents on Amazon that have genuine 3000-5000HH that leak like watering cans after a couple of trips because they're just flung together and stitched badly.
I've used a couple of Eurohike tents plenty and know a few people that have this one and swear by it. Both of mine have a 2000HH and they're pretty bomb proof and have never leaked, and are great condensation wise. They're cheap and basic, but solid and made well. They're not fashionable, but neither are the prices.

I gave the deal heat and I have posted a Eurohike tent deal (i owned the tent also) previously so yes for the budget if it's what you can afford then they're good tents, if you can afford a little more and enjoy camping I would get a better HH head tent and reduce the risk of any problems as that just makes sense to me. Each to their own.


When it's pis*ing down enough to create a continuous 200cm column of water on any tent, I won't be going camping at all, and neither would anyone else I would hope.

I'm not sure which tent guides you're reading but MSR, Mountain Hardware, North Face and many other premium tent manufacturers have wildly popular tents that have a 1500 to 1800 HH that cost £250-300 and upwards. All perfectly fine in bad weather.

Also the old Gelert Solos had a 1500HH and they were super popular with wild campers for donkeys years. Famous for being great in bad weather. £30 when new.

Sorry to go on, but going by the HH to judge tent quality isn't a wise thing to do, and particularly isn't a good thing to advise people. It's like saying a car goes faster because it's got a GTI sticker on.

It's a lightweight tent alright but not exactly light weight at 3kg.
For fair weather use you cant argue with the price.

I would be more concerned about the poles on this, before the HH

Not to be that guy, but I think you are agreeing with what I actually commented to start with. I don't think I placed too much importance on the HH in my comment, I even said if the stitching is rubbish then regardless of the HH rating a tent will leak.

'realistically a decent tent should have a HH of around 4000'. I felt like that was placing a fair bit of importance on the HH tbh. I don't know why, but I didn't notice your comment about the stitching the first time I read it.

Regardless, the stitching on Eurohike tents is really good in my experience, and anyone I've met who have this particular one would agree. I rate EH tents for messing about in and weekend camping very highly.

Loads of people do the equivalent of buying Lamborghini's to go and do the shopping at Asda when it comes to tents, due to marketing and gear acquisition syndrome imo. Just saying, these tents will do the job pretty well for people who don't want to spend a lot.

Seems like a very solid choice for DofE kids on a tight budget. Personally would probably try to stretch up to something like the Naturehike Cloudup 2 if possible (half the weight, but doubleish the price - though still cheap for what it is), but if funds are of prime concern then you're not gonna get anything below the OP that's actually worth using.

I don't feel you are sorry to go on, I think you rather enjoy going on....and on.....and on. I stated HH was a factor in the quality of a tent, I also noted the stitching was another factor. I really cannot be bothered to justify my previous comments further when you clearly only wish to carry on with this discussion endlessly until you think you have somehow 'won'.

Have you got a Cloudup 2? I keep looking at those but am a bit hesitant due to not being able to see it in person. I'm looking to replace my old knackered Vango Banshee for something light that's as easy to pitch but you can sit up in. Obviously a lot of options out there but this seems like a good one budget wise?

No, but they've been around a fair while now and have a solid reputation in lightweight hiking circles. If you use poles I'd suggest thinking about something like the 3F Lanshan 2 for even better weight savings (I do have one of those, very good for the price)... but if you want self supporting tho then the Naturehike stuff is prettymuch the optimum performance sub £100. When my daughters start camping with guides or whatever it's probaby what I'll get them (if they don't want to use poles)... The only thing to be aware of with the Chinese tents is that they tend to come up a bit short. If you're 6ft plus then may need to check measurements (not sure ont the CU2 specifically).

Obviously you can spend much more in the world of tents if you go down that rabbit hole...

Cheers for that. yeah I've been down the rabbit hole, climbed up and fallen back in several times unfortunately. Looking for the perfect tent is deliciously frustrating, and a life long job. I used to love the Banshee but am getting too old and my knackered old back needs a bit of tlc.
I'm definately more on for self supporting. I don't use walking poles and I never thought id say it, but I now prefer inner first tents due to the stability and head height.
I'm not really anywhere near 6ft so I'll definately have a look. Thanks very much for the input

No worries. Try poles, your knackerd back will thank you
Don't expect to see it anytime soon though. I've ordered from millets on Tuesday and it still hasn't been despatched.
I think this will withstand a casual 2-3 day campsite break with standard british weather. From the comments above, I assume these guys want to camp on a mountain in snow. For 36 quid, you get what you pay for. Worst comes to it, it will stay in my car as a backup tent incase my primary tent fails.

Tesco carrier bags have a massive HH. I'm thinking about getting 5000, dying them green and selling them on as flysheets. Certainly looks like I'd have plenty of customers, especially if I charged at least £200 so that everyone knew they were professional.

Never heard of these but they look quality! Well light too. You any experience of these? Is the inner fly like the American style or UK (ie more close weaved rather than open and airy)
Blacks and Milletts were selling these tents at multiple times last year for £30 delivered. In the current climate (when no one can actually go camping) £36 seems expensive, especially for a hydrostatic head of only 2000. That said there's not many tents on sale at the mo and I imagine manufacturing has slowed right down so an OK deal if you need one now.

As I said in another reply above, I don't have one myself (I use poles so all my small tents are pole-supported) but they have a generally good rep in the ultralight hiking scene as budget options for weight-conscious hikers. They started off as basically rip-offs of Big Agnes or MSR designs, but have evolved into their own thing at this point (though the designs still usually have a close analogy to one of the American models). i can't speak to the inner mesh style, but I expect you'll find most are open summer mesh style. I do know that 3F UL (the other big Chinese tent firm that makes more pole supported models) offer 4-season (closed mesh) inners for some of their tents, so Naturehike may do the same now.

There are tons of reviews on Youtube, have a watch of a few. The only real problem at the moment is the shipping issues from China. I'd normally suggest that AliExpress is the place to buy, but I have friends who've had issues with Ali shipping over the last month. There are European sellers of the Naturhike stuff, but you usually have to pay a premium.

I've recently bought the Naturehike Mongar 3 from AliExpress. Delivery took two weeks longer than expected, and I had to pay £24 custom charges on a £95 tent. However, it seems to be a quality tent for a budget price, therefore worth waiting a fair few weeks as we can't really use them at the moment anyway.

Ah, sucks that you got stung for the customs charges - I've been lucky in the past (2 3FUL tents, one backpack, and various titanium cooking bits) with no charges.... I wonder if with less stuff coming in they're having a harder look at the bits that do? Anyway, still good value even with the extra - hopefully you won't have to wait to long to get out in it (otherwise, garden camp!)..... enjoy!

I used a cheapo Eurohike 2 / 3 man for 4 months travelling and camping in Iceland, as my smaller "better" Vango wouldn't have been suitable for me and my kit. It survived freezing - horizontal wind, camping on rock when soil wasn't available, and my general clumsiness. Are they perfect? No, but then neither are my more premium tents. It did its job well and didn't let me down.

I lived in Iceland for 12 months working with a business in Keflavik. I confirm it's a country that would test any tent, especially with all the lava rocks and gravel poking through the grass.

I had a Eurohike 6 man tent.. Lasted about 14 years, until the zipper went on it.. Never leaked..

In fact, when I was camping up in Scotland opposite Ben Nevis.. all my friends tents got flooded.. Where as mine remained water tight.
I have to sell 2 for 2 people(not this brand) that I got back from the download a couple of years ago.. My quechua 3 seconds is perfect.. Anyway looks like a decent price
