Hi Gear Airgo Cirrus 6 tent £575 @ gooutdoors

Found 2nd Apr 2015
Fantastic spacious tent that pitches in minutes due to airbeams instead of poles.

Quality materials and excellent build quality unlike cheaper HiGear tents and tho I'd say 6 berth is pushing it as a 4 berth it's all the space you could need

... unless like me you have its bigger brother the Nimbus 8!

The above added voucher has expired whoever added that, the clue is in its name and we're now in April....

That much for a tent? Must be mad. And unless your a **** pitching a tent is not that hard.

Guess you don't go camping much then....

Price this up against an equivalent Vango or Outwell! It isn't anything to do with difficulty, its the speed you can pitch and put away - My 7.5m x 3m plus additional porch Nimbus 8 is up and pegged in under 10 mins and not much longer down and back in its bag - try beating that with just your normal 2 man tent...

You can't really compare this to the vango or outwell , not in the same league

Yup you're right Take a look at one, the design and build is far better than Vango these days! I spent weeks looking at these different expensive air pole tents last year and sorry but I found these top of the range Hi Gears far better made and designed.

Luckily for me I'm not a badge snob...

Just about to go away this Easter weekend in our air-go nimbus 8. I ended up paying about £815 a couple of months ago for the massive tent, porch, footprint and carpet...

Airbeam technology is really impressive.
Unfortunately the more expensive tent deals on here rarely attract heat.

The vango equivalents have these straps that seriously hamper the internal useable space. The hi-gears knock them into a cocked hat.

Exactly mate, 1st thing I noticed n thought why the hell would anyone do that! Can't imagine its fun waking in the early hours n going out for a pee and getting throttled by a strap whilst half asleep. Enjoy your camping and bit of advice, make sure all your vents are open as tent does create a lot of condensation inside if you don't. A lot of people think that its their tent thats leaking but it isn't, its just the nature of the (big) beast!

Will do! Thanks for the heads up.


Not looking forward trying to get it back in the bag... Any tips?

Its easier than you think. I leave the doors open, roll the tent one way 1st and then roll it the other, fold over the sides using the bag as a marker to make sure the width isn't too wide then roll up. The hardest part is physically getting it into the bag with the inevitable damp ground sheet as its slippy as hell so I just put the bag on its side and roll it into it. The bag is far bigger than it could have been so theres some wriggle room to play with.

Enjoy!

Hi, has anyone got the porch with this tent? I did a lot of research before buying, and on the whole am very happy with the tent for the moey we paid compared to the other brands, only 2 of us using it so plenty of room. BUT as others have mentioned the porch is a problem as it 'pings' away at sides in high wind, I am sure I can fix it with an extra fastener on both ses but wondered if anyone else had any tips??
