Indoor use only.



It does not say indoor use only, it advises not to leave in wind and rain and not to leave up over night.

It's not that you cant use it outdoors, just that they have a remarkable ability to turn into a kite in more than a sparrows fart of breeze. Highly recommend ratchet strapping them down several times :-)

Lol X) This is so true...

We have the exact same one bought from B&Q for £50 about 4 years ago (it was on sale from £150), its still going strong believe it or not, even though we have used it every year throughout the summers. We have only had to repair a few velcro straps as they rip off easily with wind and movement.

The secret is... only use it on calm days, the lightest wind possible and still strap it down with extra rope. We have lefts ours up overnight on calm days, brilliant for teens parties.

B&Q reduced the 30x10 to £15 some months ago, I would have loved to bought another one for that price.

Heat. Purchased one. Looking at the dimensions, it will make a perfect 2 man tent for my gargantuan cousin and his wife.

10% off your first order too

or....make a tent out of 14x £5 notes .... I guarantee it will be sturdier..

Then when the wind blows... You will have lost £70...just like if you bought this.

Please do not buy, you have been warned

Common sense not to put it up on a windy day

Is there a code or is it automatic on new accounts, thanks

If you buy one of these you are obliged to inform ATC ( Air Traffic Control ) of your flight plans so that other aircraft can be re routed away from your area....:p

You could get a decent gang bang going on in there!! I can just imagine the plastic windows all steamed up!!

Looks like the great british bake off tent

So, it's basically a complicated an awkward umbrella.

I've had these before. £70 isn't a 'deal' price it is THE price. You'd be a mug to spend more than that on an 'indoor use only' item.

You can get a similar item for £63 delivered on ebay.

When i say "Indoors Only" i meant indoors (for example) inside the Ally Pally or the London Arena.......but you still need to be carefull......someone popped a balloon next to mine and it ended up in the car park.

Provide the link to ebay if it's made by the same company then your point is valid.

If it's a 'similar' product, my point is valid, I would suggest, as that's what I stated.
If it was the exact same product, I would have stated that.
Unfortunately they don't list the weight of the material used for panels - I'd expect one costing £300 to specify this.

In the land of lazy people.

On further inspection of the details, I strongly suspect they are identical.

This bit from the 'palm springs' blurb is particularly laughable:

Ideal for commercial or recreational use - parties, weddings etc.

Just got one for 59.49, the company gave me 15% off for first time order. It'll be just fine for the occasional doo on a calm day. Cheers!
