Another single skin tent with a low hydrostatic head rating.



what he said, homie

Read all the reviews for this tent.....there's a reason its so cheap.

The four man version gets better reviews with people waking up still dry.

it would be like camping in a paper bag!

Only use for this would be for the kids to play in or for them to camp in the back garden in bone dry weather

Gonna get this for my grandchildren to play in. Thanks for posting.

To be fair going by today's standards this should actually be called a 2 person tent.

OK for indoor use oO

Had one of these for reading festival
Absolute garbage and left it behind
Been this price for a while
OK for kids camping in the garden if its not a damp night

Not really.

Good as a play house! Positive thinking

Got this as a play tent and I assume my 6 year old Daughter will want this up in her room tomorrow where it will probably stay for a long time!

At least she won't be sleeping with her feet out like all the crappy kids play tents.

Single skin, same as those pop-up gimmicks.. You'll wake up soaking wet with condensation.

To all the tent snobs.. i think this is for kids playing in the back garden not to go camping with. Who the hell goes away camping in a 12 quid tent??????????

I actually took this to Everest base camp and barring the zips being a little stiff it was superb. Barely noticed the weight on my way to the summit.

I know someone who uses these they don't complain about it anyway. Although when they bought it the person at the till said it might leak for the first few times then it would stop

Yes, tents of this type will usually seal after getting wet a few times and is "normal". The stitching swells up and seals the seams. Some recommend spraying new tents with a hose in order to "condition" them before using.

The alternative is to apply "seam sealer" to the seams, which you can buy from all good camping stores or buy an expensive tent with taped seams.

now 15.

£15 online now

The one we had pitched on Afton Down on the Isle of Wight Festival in 1970 was better than this, and that had 2 runner bean canes to hold it up.

Oh, the good old days.

Great disposal tent for a UK festival

Is it big enough for a circus?

That's exactly what you buy it for

And for that purpose, it's perfect! Super quick to put up, cheap, reasonably sturdy (given the price) and compact.

Yes, £15 now, but still an ok price for a kids garden toy.

Excellent for sleeping in the garden these summer nights after being kicked out by the wife for farting in bed

They don't just rot, people collect the tents and donate them to charity.

It's been said, but as a relatively frequent camper myself: don't bother with these single skin tents in England. Been there done that. They're usable in the peak of summer if the forecast is completely dry, but even then I'd want some reason for its existence (like being a pop-up type, and even then you can get dual skin ones). But most likely even if you're very fortunate with the weather and it doesn't rain overnight, you'll still get condensation (in the form of your breath condensing on the upper - and only - skin, and sometimes in the form of morning dew soaking through) and dripping down onto your face.

You can still get a good deal on dual skin tents. Keep an eye on Argos, especially towards end of season - I got my last "weekend beer festival" tent there for something like £15 (slashed from something like £45+), it's served me about 3 or 4 years now, dual skin "umbrella style" semi-popup. Pull 2 cords away from each other, job done, 10 seconds flat.

I have done for a 3 week period near winter, camping every night in my £10 asda tent, i was happy with it too, 6 years ago, it done me well.
Nowadays i'm a tent snob and buy the good ones.
I wrote a 15 page journal, john o'groats to lands end on a budget, a £10 asda tent is sticking to the cheap trip way of life.

Vango Banshee 200 or 300 depending on the size you want and weight you can carry.

That looks about as useful as a chocolate tea pot most probably .Thanks all the same .heat added
