You're kidding right? Why do you think there is such a huge aftermarket …You're kidding right? Why do you think there is such a huge aftermarket in fibreglass tent poles? (and barely any for steel poles) - they are the first ones to be damaged/snap in stormy weather. Just take a trip to any campsite in say Cornwall after a storm - you'll see loads of fibreglass poled tents lying flat on the ground and usually the only ones standing are steel poles or airbeam tents.


That's an odd reason to take a trip to Cornwall.
Although I do sometimes sit in the IKEA carpark with a flask just to watch people as they wheel their piled high trolley to their fiat 500.

Possibly because the vast majority use fibre poled tents these days, who wants to lug a gurt heavy metal poled tent about?!
This could be the summer of our discount tent.

Great tent for the price hot
Both owned by JD Sports.
Good size tent for the money, but wouldn't want a tent this size with fibreglass poles (unless I could guarantee camping in calm conditions)
In my experience a fibre poled tent is less likely to be damaged than a rigid poled tent, there's no "give" in a rigid poled tent whereas the fibre poles will absorb any wind gusts and return to shape ..... Each to their own though ....

Hiking Dom for a horse ....
Not sure if I should buy it or not it's a lot of money
..feeling a little tent-ative
We had this tent but be aware there are no fly screens on the side doors so it gets HOT and smelly unless you are prepared to open the side doors and invite the bugs in as it allows no ventilation! We returned it after one trip saying it wasn’t fit for purpose because of this basic design flaw and got our money back. I’d avoid this one!

Same tent if you have a discount card at £289 …Same tent if you have a discount card at £289 http://m.gooutdoors.co.uk/vango-anteus-600-famly-tent-p290250


That’s a totally different tent

Not sure if you're actually serious now. Steel poled tents are still hugely popular - the Outwell Montana 6 for example, is one of the biggest selling tents every year. Your comments suggest you're either wumming or just don't have a clue

Hi, just checked the Blacks website and with this being the 2018 model it indicates that all doors are now meshed.

And your validation for this statement can be verified where?
Would go 4a air tent & not a steel or fibre glass pole tent..

And your validation for this statement can be verified where?


Anyone who knows anything about camping under canvas knows all about the Montana 6 - it's been sold for well over a decade and if you take a look at tent review websites you'll see that more people have reviewed this tent than any other.
I can't quite believe that you're asking me to "verify" my statement about such a popular tent (actually I can, seeing as you also think fibreglass poles are "less likely to be damaged than a rigid poled tent"!), but here you go:

My Vango has the screen and avoids the " Dad I can't go sleep there are bugs in the tent" nightly routine of camping joy. As long as the kids remember to zip it back up!
Agree that this is essential feature.
