I have double skinned Eurohike pop up tent and it's very good. I used it at least 10 times last year and I have it with me on Euro trip. Very easy to set up and take down. This one looks like single skin and may have problems with condensation.
I've two pop up tents. A 2 man single skin that avoids condensation if you only close the mesh door overnight, & a 3 man Decathlon double skin, with sides that can swing out/up for ventilation. They are too big to carry about for hiking, but take no space flat in the car boot. If driving to the Highlands it's a perfect place to sleep as an alternative to B&Bs.
At the bottom of the lake? 😁😁😁😁😁
Ignore the snobs. I have a gelert pop up tent and have used maybe 10 times at many a festival without a single issue. yeah they can be a pain to put away but once you crack it, jobsagoodun.
easy to put away not, thats why so many are left behind, suggest you practice at home
The Air 600 tent from Eurohike features an inflatable beam design with high-performance air tubes that allow the tent to pitch in minutes and deflate again in seconds, making your camping ex…
Yes I think the spare air beam I bought for the Air 6XL is made by Eurohike.
Not much point in an Air 6 then. I suspect the Berghaus air tents (although a slightly higher spec) is made in the same factory as the Eurohike Air as the Eurohike replacement beams also fit the Berghaus air.
Thanks for that but may just keep onto it as we have the Air 6XL when we go away for longer than a weekend and also think they are going to start using their pup tents more now they are growing up. 😁
Now might be a good time to sell your air 4. I've been warching the prices because I was going to get one. A couple of months ago you could get a new air 4 for around £400. Now that it has been replaced with the 4.1, they are not discounting the 4.1 yet - its around £550. Picked up a 4 second hand for £350 with carpet and footprint. Have you seen the air 6 deal? https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/berghausair-61-nightfall-tent-3937445
My decathlon tent has a sloping front like this, and it does make the living area smaller if you have to have it shut on a rainy day. Enough light comes in through the Windows for it not to be gloomy though.
I know abolutely nothing about tents, but £69 seems great to me.
I didn't open it for over a year was in my garage! Only opened this month. i kept the cover as will use it to cover my bike but the rest was binned. its a good size and when it was up was thinking this was a good find but the middle pole is very weak and fully buckled when my daughter accidentally knocked into it. regards, Cameron
Why would you bin it instead of taking back for a replacement or refund, if you still had the receipt? Cheers for the info though. Think we’ll give it a miss this time.
Seems almost like a money laundering racket at this price... They get really cheap in autumn clearance.
It should do but I would not be smoking shisha as too much smoke would come off a shisha maybe a small one

Mobile Shelter from the Elements: Tents
Camping is one of life’s great pleasures. There is nothing like sleeping close to nature and waking up with the sound of sheep or the cooing of birds, before unzipping your tent to greet the morning sun. The world is full of beautiful locations to pitch your tent, so find exactly the right size, shape and type and start exploring.
Tents come in a wide range of shapes and sizes. Summer or screen tents provide extra ventilation for the hot months, along with features like insect nets. There are three-season tents with extra protection from the elements. Mountaineering or winter tents come with rugged structures and designs that make them stable in high winds. Convertible models can be altered to suit any camping situation, and simple tarps that can be put up in seconds.
Things to Think About When Buying a Tent
Before choosing a particular type of tent, it’s worth thinking about the different features that all tents share. What are the basic things to ask about or look out for when making your purchase?
Choosing Enough Tent-Space
Especially for families and “glampers”, space will be the crucial factor. Most tent makers will provide information about the number of berths (people that the tent can sleep) as well as the capacity in cubic feet.
However, this doesn’t always tell the whole story. The shape can also influence how spacious a tent feels. Does the tent have a high ceiling, or are there large areas that seem cramped? In some environments, space is crucial. If you risk being snowed in, or you may need to shelter for hours from the rain, having more headroom makes sense.
Not all manufacturers are straight up about the capacity of their tents either. They might list their products as 2-3 berth tents, without factoring in the space taken by your backpacks or cases. As a rule of thumb, subtract one person from the recommended berth number to arrive at a reasonable capacity, and count your baggage as one whole adult person.
Choosing the Ideal Tent-Materials for Weather Protection
Next, think about the materials used in your tent. The majority of modern tents are made from nylon, polyester or a combination of the two, but polycottons are also becoming common. As a rule, nylon tents are less bulky, cheaper and ideal for short vacations, while polyester tents will be more suited to extended breaks.
Look at the “hydrostatic head” of the materials used. This measurement is crucial, as it gauges how waterproof the tent will be. In British conditions, a reading of 2000-3000 is recommended, so don’t go below that. Check the seams of the tent as well. Double-stitched folded seams will keep out moisture better than basic seams and may be worth the extra expense.
Every tent also needs a high quality groundsheet. This lies underneath the tent floor, insulating the interior and keeping it protected from ground moisture. Generally, groundsheets are made from materials like tyvek or tarp, but vary in their weight and thickness. Polycro is a good option for backpackers who need an ultra-light but effective groundsheet.
Choosing the Right Tent-Structure
Think about the structure of your tent as well. All tents involve fabric resting upon a structure of poles – but the form these poles take can differ. There are three main types – fibre-glass, steel and inflatable beams, and all have their strengths and weaknesses.
Steel poles are strong but less flexible. If you are pitching a family tent and are concerned about windy conditions, they will be ideal. Fibre-glass poles are flexible and light. They are easy to transport via backpacks, and simple to erect, but they can snap and aren’t as solid as their steel equivalents. A good middle-ground is composite poles featuring fibre-glass tubes and metal hoods to protect their joints.
Another structural element to consider is the skin of the tent. Tents will usually come in two forms – single or double skinned. Double skinned tents are almost always warmer, due to the extra layer of insulation. They are also more waterproof, as the outer layer allows rain to run-off without touching the inner lining. On the other hand, single-skinned tents are nice and light, more spacious and cheaper (and easier to put up).
You might also want to think about any additional features that your tent requires. For example, families may want to include a window to let the morning sun into their sleeping quarters. Vestibules and porches are also popular and practical additions, providing space to eat and prepare food, and to store luggage when the weather is fine.
What are the Best Tents for Summer Family Holidays?
If you are planning a family trip to UK beauty spots like the Lake District, Cornwall or the New Forest, there are plenty of camping options available to choose from. Most importantly, make sure that you choose a big enough tent. Between 5 and 10 berths should accommodate most families comfortably. These tents will be relatively large, so choose ones that blend lightweight materials and the capacity you need.
As their name suggests, summer tents are a great option for warm weather escapes. These tents will usually feature thin materials, large sections of mesh ventilation and more space underneath the rain-fly to allow air to circulate. Tents can become extremely warm when the summer sun shines, so having good ventilation really makes a difference in terms of comfort. In the UK, the need for good ventilation is offset by the need to ensure that you stay dry, so pick a summer tent that ticks both boxes.
A good compromise is choosing a three-season tent. Again, as their name suggests, these tents are intended for use in all times of year except the depths of winter. If you love camping, they are a sensible alternative to lightweight summer designs. With their stronger poles, solid panels and more extensive rain-fly, three-season tents create a protective cocoon which allows for enjoyable spring and autumn breaks.
Choosing the Right Tent for Family Camping
Find the Right Type of Summer Tent
Both three-season and summer tents come in a variety of forms. The most advanced are inflatable tents manufactured by brands like Vango or Hi Gear. These models use a pump that can be hand operated or attached to a car, which inflates poles that are integrated into the skin of the tent. Essentially, there are no poles, making them a convenient and simple tent to erect.
Other warm weather tents are made in the classic A-frame design – which delivers comfort and are relatively easy to put up, but can be bulky to carry. Then there are vis-à-vis tents. This kind of tent is ideal for families, as it consists of two sleeping chambers facing each other across a vestibule. That way, parents and young children can be close, but separated, which some may prefer to a single sleeping chamber.
Whatever kind of warm weather tent you go for, the right accessories can help. A large porch provides protection against summer rains and space to eat a picnic or breakfast, while a tent carpet provides an extra layer of luxury and comfort.
The Best Tents for out of Season Breaks
If you intend to head to the moors of Britain for a spring holiday, or you plan to take your tent into the mountains, other types of tent will be more suitable than summer or three-season models.
Convertible tents are designed to be used in as many different conditions as possible. They will usually feature a range of customisable options, like removable rain-flies, zip-up mesh ventilation panels and detachable vestibules. This makes them handy, versatile and comfortable in most seasons, but it comes at a price – weight. Convertible tents are rarely light enough to strap onto a bike or carry in a backpack, and they aren’t small.
Mountaineering Tents for Extreme Conditions
For more extreme conditions a mountaineering tent will be the only viable option. This kind of tent is designed to cling to the ground like a limpet and can withstand extreme levels of wind and cold. They can come in both geodesic and tunnel shapes, and both have their advantages. Tunnels are often lighter, as they include more fabric relative to poles. However, geodesic models are more stable and can feel roomier.
This stability is vital if you want to camp safely in extreme conditions. Your tent needs to be wind resistant, with a low profile and streamlined appearance (and it's a good idea to practice putting it up before you travel to ensure that you know how to use it properly). A good mountaineering tent should be easy to erect, so that you don’t waste time and energy, and you should be able to carry it comfortably as well.
Single Sheet Tarp Tents
At the lightest end of the market, you might also consider a single tarp or shell tent. Essentially a modern lean-to, these tents consist of a single sheet of material (usually nylon or polyester) that is erected with a couple of poles and lines. Tarps take some skill to erect properly, but are ultra-lightweight and great for fishing or hiking in warmer climates.
The Best Tents for Backpackers
Backpacking tents are somewhere in between convertible tents and specialist mountaineering tents. They are always lightweight, generally compact, but rugged enough to deal with wind and rain in remote locations.
In the past, many backpackers have gone for smaller tents with large vestibules so that they can store their packs close to their person and keep them safe from the rain. Vestibules also provide a little extra space outside the body of the tent, making them handy if you plan to cook. Cooking inside the tent is not recommended due to the risk of fire and carbon monoxide poisoning.
However, vestibules add extra weight onto a backpacking tent. When you are carrying around a pack with your clothes, toiletries, books and gadgets, any extra bulk can be a game-changer, so backpackers might want to go for a more basic tent without a vestibule.
It all comes down to how you plan to use the tent. If you intend to spend long periods in the wilderness, a vestibule is essential. If you will be near places to eat and other amenities, a vestibule could be an encumbrance – so choose wisely.
Choosing a Tent for Outdoor Activities
The Ideal Tent for a Music Festival
For many people, music festivals will be a primary reason to buy a tent. As anyone who has attended a multi-day festival knows, having the right tent can make or break the experience, so choose wisely.
Generally, festival goers will prefer cheaper tents that are lightweight and compact. However, resist the urge to go for the cheapest and smallest tents around. A 2-3 berth design should provide room for you and a friend, as well as a small amount of baggage. Include a rain porch as well because - at a British music festival - you can guarantee it will rain.
Festival tents should also be well-ventilated. Insulation isn’t as important as keeping the interior well-aired and odour-free. Polycotton is a good material to go for, mixing good breathability with waterproof properties. Festival tents also need to be easy to put up and take down. Space is often limited, and time is of the essence, so a pop-up tent makes perfect sense.
How to Look After Your Tent
All campers should make sure that their tents stay in peak condition for as long as possible. Not only do you want to get the most out of your investment, but a well-maintained tent will stay waterproof and warm for longer than one that is torn or dirty.
Remember to air out your tent whenever you use it. Odours can remain for months after a holiday, and mould can develop on the inside or outside of the tent in a matter of days. Be sure to hang your tent and groundsheet in a breezy spot to give it a good chance to freshen up.
Cleaning all of your tent materials is essential, and you can find specialist cleaning products that will get the job done. When you use your tent, take care not to eat inside the tent, as crumbs and scraps will be hard to remove (and in some locations they can attract wild animals who can damage the tent). Keep your food stored in airtight containers.
After using your tent, carry out a thorough inspection of all of its surfaces. Any rips or tears can cause the tent to completely lose its waterproof properties, so patch them up with specialist repair kits as soon as possible.
What Kind of Accessories can I Buy for My Tent?
Camping fans can enhance the experience of pitching their tent with the right accessories. In fact, recent years have seen the rise of “glamping” – a luxury form of camping that seeks to blend the comfort of hotel breaks with proximity to the outdoors. That might not be for you, but you might want to make the experience slightly more comfortable nonetheless.
Footprints are a good idea for families or anyone camping in spring or autumn. Placed underneath the tent, they help to prevent rips and provide an extra layer of insulation.
Carpets are another good addition to your camping trip. Placed on the inside of the tent, they help to keep feet nice and warm by limiting their contact with the cold ground, while they also provide another layer of insulation and help to keep the floor of your tent clean.
Porches are a must for many campers. You can use them to provide a shady, sheltered space for breakfasts, reading, chilling out or cooking, and they can be a good place to store wellington boots or sports equipment away from sleeping space.
Many people also like to take windbreaks away with them when they camp. You can erect windbreaks against whichever direction the wind is coming from, helping to add an extra element of protection against the cold. They can also provide added privacy for meals, changing nappies or just relaxing on campsites, and they are handy for the beach as well.
All campers should take basic spares with them if they have space. Tent pegs, a couple of spare poles, extra guy lines and repair kits for rips represent a good insurance policy against any mishaps. A camping trip can be ruined by an accidental tear or a broken tent pole, so make sure you are covered. It also makes sense to have a good mallet on hand, and cleaning equipment to mop up any spills if they occur.

Got one years ago for a fiver at the end of season, not worth a fiver
Used one of these on my first camping trips..what a nightmare , woke up totally soaked haha. Gave it away and got a oex phoxx 2 , a bit more but miles better.
Don't try rocking up to a UK festival in one of these, it'll be utterly useless as soon as the first rain cloud/wind looks at it. If you want something just for a kids play tent then Poundland have something that looks similar for less.
it must not ideal in harsh weather situations,But the price +1 :)

Probably only works on Eurohike stuff - picked up a spare air beam and brow pole (£4) using the code for my air 4
That was a good tip but it looks like the Air 6 carpet is excluded from the YES20 promo - presumably because it's already discounted. Didn't look at other accessories but just worth noting that not everything is discounted.
Cheers, great feedback
Footprint goes under the tent - it helps protect the groundsheet and if the ground is wet, it means the underside of the groundsheet is mostly dry and clean when you come to pack away (instead of getting your possibly dry clean tent - damp and dirty). Some people just use a tarp folded to size but having the footprint means you can get the position of your tent right before you start laying it out and putting it up. Carpet - adds a bit of warmth and comfort to the living area. You could buy a universal carpet or large backed picnic rug and fold it to size. The Eurohike large tent carpet is 265cm by 280cm and £36 vs the Air 6 carpet (292cm by 250cm and £52 on Millets.) I would recommend both the footprint and the carpet, especially if you have kids sitting on the floor.
You can use them both together - the carpet is for inside the tent, the footprint is for under the tent.

That's a really expensive tent when you factor in having to buy a bigger car to transport it. Lol (cheeky)
Cool box went inbetween the kids on back seat and had a roof box. Parcel shelf removed and loaded stuff on top of the tent. Shortly afterwards, we bought a bigger car!
What do you do with the rest of your stuff (embarrassed)
Plus 5% cashback if you have Santander retailer offers ( max £30 )
We have this tent, and it more than big enough for us (2 adults, 2 kids) and is brilliant. I bought the porch last year to store wet shoes \ cool box etc. Just be aware that these inflatable tents are huge when packed in the bag. It filled the whole boot of a VW Golf
Link for ground sheet I use for this tent, Millets Ebay https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/333592561631?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=gwOsLR4MT6W&sssrc=2349624&ssuid=jv9SQNHBSNu&var=&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY
Yeah it's basically a groundsheet that you put down before the tent on top. You want it roughly the same size of the tent, helps keep the tent's sewn-in groundsheet protected from stones etc. Better to have a separate footprint tear than having to repair the tent itself. Also makes it easier for cleaning. But let the tent overlap the footprint all around or if it rains water will gather between the two
Pardon my ignorance, but is this a ground sheet idea to put the actual tent on or for the living area? Thanks.
No way (:I keep an eye on it, I paid 215 last summer but was often changing price. I was watching it like a hawk for it to come in stock, I'm sure it was even less than 200 at one point
So gutted I missed this at 224.86 :( Had it in my basket, life got in the way, didn't checkout!

Bet you're not saying that when you need a plumber
I've had a few Coleman tents in the past which I have loved. I bought one of their blackout tents a few years ago and returned it. The blackout material feels like a thick bin liner. Definitely not for me.
Poles, so yesturday.
I bought this on offer from Costo £330 no longer available. I had to send the 1st on back as it had a few issues. 2nd on is fine but if the 2 last coleman purchases I've made (this and an event shelter) quality seems to be lower than my older coleman products. On the plus side its quick to put up and easy enough to do solo.
I'm not camping expert, but as my old tent didn't have sawn in groundsheet, new tent I definitely wanted with sawn in. It's just better in rainy days. Not sure if wind is a problem, more worried about wet weather. And by looks, it looks like air beams added after tent was made and looked, don't even know how to describe, bit childish? Like beams taken from bouncy castle... but maybe it's just me (embarrassed)
Most of the reviews don't mention this issue about coldness and wind entry, which makes me wonder if its just when it's super windy or / and the reviewer wasn't dressed warm enough for camping which was a contributing factor in their discomfort. But in an ideal world the tent wouldn't have these design issues. What about the appearance in real life put you off, do you think? I quite like the colour (I can imagine daylight looking more natural whilst sitting inside, particularly on a cloudy day). Good luck with your first camping trip in the Berghaus, leave a review on HUKD once you've used it! (y)
That's one of the reasons I went for berghaus, second reason was, I really didn't like how it looked in rl. But as I didn't use mine yet i don't have useful review
It's not an inconsiderable amount of money, if issues do crop up... It's knowing which issues are easy to live with, and which would put a dampener on a holiday which is difficult to know, without getting firsthand experience of a particular tent. Thank you, you too! :)
Yeah, I've not committed to one yet either. Good luck with what you decide. :)
Found pics of what I did to a Mitsubishi Pajero, the "bed" folded in half to reveal a third seat for when I had an extra passenger. I then fitted curtains to the windows and between front and back to create an enclosed bedroom.

Forget about how waterproof this is, whoever sets out how many people can fit in a tent this size. No one is having three people in this tent and sleeping well in hot, cold or rainy weather, lol
Hydrostatic head is like mega-pixels. Someone will always be along to tell you that 2000mm isn't enough because you can get higher. In reality a 2000 mm hydrostatic head will be enough to comfortably stop a heavy rain-storm in winds which would blow your tent away.
I don't know if the quality is still the same, but I had a eurohike tent throughout the 90s that stood up to hundreds of camping trips in all weather.
These are fantastic to watch in a storm, as long as you're not inside one. That little vent in the top nearly always collapses into the centre of the tent when it gets too wet. I saw this happen to two of them on a camping trip in Holland a while ago. Luckily the tent I was in had a HH of 4500 and not a design like this. These are probably fine if it doesn't rain.
