Saw the deal for the festival tent at Gelert at £8... Then saw better deals - like this 2 man lightweight but 2 layer and taped seam tent - should actually survive multiple uses!

just wait 4 the brexit much discon"tent" :-(

1500hydro?... Be better off sleeping outside in the rain and spending a few quid on a towel.

or the OP could have just added it to the original deal....................

Hope I'm wrong, but I have a feeling this is a cheap low quality sports direct own brand, made in a chinese sweat shop hunk of junk. Gelert has gone the same way as Karrimor, Slazenger, Field and Trek, Dunlop, Lansdale, Firetrap etc etc. The original company has gone bust and sports direct have bought up the brand rights cheaply to pretend they are a cut above matalan, primark, Aldi, lidl, which are their real competitors.

Anyone buying a single wall tent to use in the UK is daft. This is a much better deal

Every winter this joke comes out on HUKD

I always preferred Rocky 2 over the others.

Heat from me.

To be fair a lot of super cheap tents are 800 or 1000 HH. This isn't too bad but I also wouldn't fancy camping in the UK in less than 3000.

Yep - it's as old as the hills

how can a tent that costs £13 be a bad deal? you get what you pay for, you could even just use it once at a festival and live it there or use it in the garden for the children to play with. heat

The comments about how watertight this tent is make me laugh. let's put it in context. It's 13 quid wtf do you expect? Good for the kids to play in for a summer then throw it away!!

Did you mean to post a link to a better deal?

It's a great deal, but for a festival I'd spend a bit more on this....

The HH is suitable for the uk weather and although the weight/size (packed) isn't given I suspect it'll be more compact and lighter to carry the long distances you have to walk at festivals such as Glastonbury.
I'd suggest the other tent would be good for the kids in the garden, but I'm not sure I'd want to spend a wet weekend in it. Good price though for a fair weather tent. Heat added.

Better del is the one by glendin

They cancelled my order. seems odd, let us know if you have more luck.

it would appear it no longer exists on there website?

had an email saying out of stock, that was why mine was cancelled.

Just had a confirmation that my order has been processed and about to be dispatched. Good luck to all who don't know yet whether they are high enough up the list for the available stock!

There looks to be some other models still in stock, inc the £8 purple festival tent which wasn't last night (they must have found some more!):

I also got myself a Quest 6 at the same time, seemed a good price for a big comfy one if taking a car the whole way!

Its pretty simple to insert a link in an existing post and telling the OP the just add it - common sense
looking forward to you posting every individual sale item in the next january sale.

Thanks for the post. Considering going for the 4DS pop up tent...

Problem is that this brand (As mentioned earlier) is owned now by Sports Direct and you can tell by the Gelert website where the RRP are inflated and then they reduce it to make it look like a bargain (Pretty much how they run the Sports Direct website...and in store too!!!!)

Decisions decisions...

That's stupid? Nobodies going to see it unless they're interested in the original item?

Using your logic why do we bother with the hotukdeals site at all? Why even have a forum? Why not just one thread labelled 'Deals! Post here!' and expect anyone looking for anything to read through every deal that anyone saw fit to post? Lol
