That's super interesting, I'd love to find a review of it somewhere - certainly sounds good in theory

will you get hit with customs chargers and the royal mail/parcel force handling charge. as I've brought from overseas before and be a useful it was over £20 I had custom vat chargers and a royal mail £7 handling fee . will it be the same if I buy it ??

Very interesting, especially when you consider the MSR Hubba NX (which is similar in concept) is the same weight, seems to have a lower hydrostatic head rating, and costs £289!!

Difficult to be sure with bulkier items. However, I have bought numerous items from Chinese retailers, and have never been hit with a customs charge. Just use standard (rather than tracked) delivery. The seller will almost certainly list the contents as being <$20 in value.

Even with a customs charge, it seems like incredibly good value.

"Super" interesting?

When did this phrase enter our vernacular?

I looked (only on the website not in person) at these earlier in the year. I was very close to buying but decided to go with a brand I'd more familiarity with and got a Force Ten Helium 2. There's a few reviews on youtube saying good things about them and I did opt for one of the Nature Hike branded light weight sleep mats which I'm very happy with and offors great comfort for the weight and price.

Yes, this brand is a bit of an unknown quantity. However, the materials/poles look significantly better quality than the price tag should afford. Also, if the weight is right, then they would have to be using decent materials to make it happen.
Wish I could find some reviews to say one way or the other. (I currently have a Coleman Viper - which is 900 grams heavier and which isn't freestanding. But it does have a full size side door - so cooking and sunrises/sunsets are great )

I have one .... yes its light and you get what you pay for. I've used it on a few week long trips in Europe. very very thin groundsheet .. i would not like to use it on wet ground without another sheet. Did the job on corsica and alps were it was dry. Not entirely free standing as front bit needs pegged out. Don't think it will last to many trips .. signs of wear already but I didn't expect it to

I can't be sure of the exact date, but I think it was around the same time that insufferable internet pedants started being super boring.

Or around the same time someone wanted to appear interesting on the internet using, what they delusionally believe, are "trendy" Americanisms.

Thanks for the real-world feedback, always (super) helpful ;-)

Had a look at the other Naturhike tents... they're clearly Chinese "tributes" to the Big Agnes range, but at a fraction of the price. Both this, and an impressively light 2 man, are available on Amazon - more expensive but with Prime delivery. Pretty decent reviews overall too. Very tempting just to see what they're like.

Languages evolve and change every day, English more then most. If you and the internet had existed in the 17th century you'd be busy complaining about Shakespeare making up new words, but fortunately for him, and unfortunately for the rest of us, you're here instead.

(Incidentally, "trendy" was an Americanism, subsumed into British English in the 1960s, so you may want to find a different word to use)
