Product Description:
Easy to erect, easy to dismantle, and offering generous living space, the Mojave 5 Family Tent is a great choice for families wanting comfortable, fuss-free camping, or couples wanting extra space for storage and fun.

It pitches outer first, with separate 3 and 2 person rooms that clip in to the underside. With taped seams, a sewn-in groundsheet and completely waterproof outer layer (3000HH), you can be sure of total protection from rain and drafts.

The poles are angled to give you maximum headroom throughout the tent, so no need to stoop when you're inside. The pole sleeves have slick inners to make pitching the tent quick and easy. In warmer weather, the breathable inner and side door with full mesh panel give you superb ventilation and allow plenty of light into the tent. The large front door can be extended out as a canopy offering shelter from sunshine or rain.

It has bright and reflective pre-attached guylines to keep it stable and secure, and more visible in the dark. There's also a electrical cable access point allowing you to use appliances inside the tent with the minimum of fuss.

A practical and versatile option for families, group campers or anyone who needs comfort and breathing room when out in the wild.

Happy Camping.

Great find. I have this tent and it is brilliant and well worth the money. Very spacious and easy to put up. Voted hot.

This one for only £30 extra is a much bigger tent, just compare the sizes (which when you're camping) a few inches is a massive difference... especially with the headroom increase on this one. It also has slightly better, seperated compartments for the two bedroms (makes it nice and cosy and warmer if not fully inhabited). Front and side entrance insetad of two side entrances. And most of all, is much easier and quicker to put up than the Atakama.

Basically it's a variation on the Gelert Lakesbury 5 badged as Hi-gear for GoOutdoors. As nobody else sells hi-gear they can make up any RRP they want. The lakesbury is the same size and format but has fewer windows hence it's slightly heavier, but as you can get last years model from around £150 (on which this is based) then I wouldn't be overly impressed by the price of this.

Good tents, but I would urge people to keep an eye out for the Vango … Good tents, but I would urge people to keep an eye out for the Vango Icarus 500 (2011 or 2012) models.You can get them for about £130 these days



I'm not that clued up on tents but we are after one with two bedroom compartments that we can comfortably stand up in. What's the advantages of the Vango over this one? I see the Vango is a bit smaller, and think I'd prefer the extra 20cm headroom in this one unless there's good reasons to go for the Vango. Cheapest I can see the Vango is £145 online, where should I be looking to get one for £130?

The quality of the Vango is slightly better than the Hi-Gear (in my experience). We had a 5 man Hi-Gear and could never for the life of us get it taut, resulted in water just sitting on the fabric.

Simply Hike has a ebay outlet store. We got our Vago Orchy 600 from them (but not via ebay). simplyhike.co.uk

Thanks, I think I need to go and check both out somewhere - if the slightly reduced headroom is not a problem then will go for a Vango if I can find one at a decent price
