As I'm moving to England and I like camping, I was looking for a tent. Skandika isn't the best brand but should be enough for normal campers like me.

I didn't buy this yet, the reviews made me think but the price is the best I've ever seen.
But I think that it can't be a mistake for this price including delivery.

Quoting from the Skandika website (http://skandika.com/en/camping/outdoor/5/lyon/)
It cost's 319£ there.

That's a great price!

Tempted to pick one up for my back garden

Thanks for sharing, I've added heat
Was £80 yesterday according to camelcamelcamel but still a good price

Tempted, but looking at the reviews it better not rain.
I'm a bit of a nerd and an expert when it comes to tents, so I can say the following authoritatively:

Style is (exactly!) the same as my Vango Icarus 500 from 6 years ago.
The design works well, and some great features too.
You have my recommendation for a very keen-priced tent!
I have a similar tent made by Coleman. 5 people is stretching it! With an air bed we have two people. If you’ve got kids then you’re better off with one of those tents with a bedroom at each end or the T shaped ones.

so your "expert" positive opinion is based on the shape. Did you read the reviews?
The reviews should be enough to put anyone off, why take a chance when it can ruin your holiday. Do your homework, decide what you want and choose a tent that will last for years to come and not end up in landfill after first use

Your comment does seem to suggest that the shape of a tent is more important than the hydrostatic head, not sure if you've read reviews?

Amazon reviews are pretty awful but there are more reviews here (http://www.ukcampsite.co.uk/tents/p/Skandika-Lyon/2938) with two positive about lack of leakage and a third which echoes the Amazon problems.

On balance I agree with Winta1ker, why would you buy a cheap tent that leaks and potentially ruin a weekend or week away when everything gets soaking wet.
Just go get one of the Decathlon ones if you want to save money and get a half decent tent.
You can find a much more reliable tent for similar money elsewhere
its the winter of discount tent
After reading the reviews I decided it's a no no no no no.
I think I can make my own from dustbin liners and it would be better than this. I was looking at the legs on the table seated on the very thin sewn in groundsheet and doesn't look like it would take long for the table legs to penetrate the groundsheet, especially if the ground was soft.
I suppose you get what you pay for but seems to be a relatively good brand too.
Also if you live in the UK then you are bound to get rain if you camp in the UK. I would think these were okay if you can guarantee no rain but that definitely is never going to be guaranteed here or anywhere in the world really.

Yes I was tempted too but not after reading the reviews.
If the tents just for you this seems a good buy at £64 for a 4 man tent using the code Easter20

Rule of thumb : whatever it says it sleeps deduct 2 from it . These tent companies think that ppl sleep cuddling each other without bending their knees.

No such thing as landfill after first use. Not that I'm condoning buying this tent, clearly not very good. But sale of goods act, "not fit for purpose" is your friend.

Ok so you return it, what do you think they do with it, make trousers out of it for all the hard working elf’s at the North Pole
