Yes well on this site this was never gonna do well. Seems to me a very keen price for a great tent (although there are better options out there IMHO). I've had one of these for over 15 years and it is quite bomb proof. You just need to understand how to deal with condensation. A good 3-4 season tent.

If anyone is looking for a proper 3/4 season tent with loads of room (i mean loads) look at the Golite Shangri-La 3 with hex nest. It's a massive tipi design with one pole in middle that can handle anything UK weather can throw at it within reason. Okay for 3, better for 2, luxury for 1.…s=0

Fun with kids and a serious bit of kit too
