not very spacious but light
This tent will work great for most people for most occasions. First, like with many tents, subtract a person from the mfr's designation. This is a 2-man tent if both campers are hobbits; otherwise, well, either you'd better be with your spouse, or just really, really skinny people. I use this as a 1-man tent on my backpacking excursions, and for that, it's worked well. A few quibbles. First, the tent is too short. At 6'2"/188 cm, this tent is only 200 cm long, and that doesn't take into account the slanted walls. Bottom line is that either my head presses against one wall, or my feet the opposite wall. Why, or why did you do this, Decathlon? The extra nylon to make it longer would have cost you about a quid, for which I'd gladly have paid, given how little this tent costs. Most other quibbles are just commensurate for a tent at this price point: little to no mesh area on the tent, so it can be a bit stifling in warmer weather. The tent door has only one zipper, so you always have to go all the way to one end or the other when zipping it up. Better tents usually have two so you can start/stop zipping wherever's best. Stuff pocket only at one end of the tent. Things like that. Otherwise? Nothing but praise. At 2.2 kilos, it's not the lightest out there, but certainly not porky. To fit it into the bottom of my Gregory backpack, I take out the poles and then smash the tent down a bit and then place it horizontally. I then just put the poles in the bag vertically.
It's definitely waterproof as I've gotten caught a couple of times in decent rains.
Overall, you get a lot for the money here. It's certainly not going to have all the bells and whistles of a tent at a higher price point, so if you camp/backpack just occasionally, give this tent a try. If you're a more serious camper, are 6'2" or taller, or just need a bit better gear, pass on this.
I BOUGHT THIS TENT FOR A HIKING WEEKEND. IT DONE THE JOB PERFECTLY. IT WAS LIGHTWEIGHT EASY TO PUT UP AND TO PACK AWAY. THERE WAS ENOUGH ROOM FOR TWO PEOPLE AND A BACKPACKS,ALSO ROOM TO MOVE. I WOULD 100%RECOMMEND THIS TENT.
IT WAS AWESOME!
Easy to put up but quite flimsy, bought to change into wetsuit. If windy not very stable. OK for a kiddies play tent though.
Got this as a last minute motorcycle camping trip was organised. Lightweight, compact when bagged up and easy to assemble.. perfect for a short trip. I'd say it should be one man to a tent though given you'll be keeping your gear in it. Fantastic bargain price tent.
I use this tent for wild camping. The quality is amazing for the price, on par with tents costing 10 times the price. It’s light, packs down into the bag easily every time and is very warm. Decent ventilation too.
Great size for 2 people, plenty of space to sleep and have bags. It rained all weekend and there wasn't a single drop in the tent! So impressed! Only fault would be that we were missing a couple of tent pegs but it wasn't an issue.
This tent has been used at 2 festivals, both of which had awful weather so this tent has been through hell. Inside compartment remained completely dry whereas all tents around me were leaking badly. Advertised as a 2 man but it's perfect for 1 + bags and drinks. GetV easy to put up and is very light. Only downside is poor lateral stiffness so it does deform considerably in high wind but for the price this tent is everything I expected and more
I bought this tent to go to a three night festival. It was fairly light-weight, didn't take up too much room in my bag and was quick to erect. It was incredibly easy to set up, I noted it came with instructions, but didn't actually need to look at them. I probably wouldn't recommend the use of this for two people. It was the perfect size for me, my bag and alcohol. It didn't rain whilst I used it, but one morning it was very damp and cold, but inside my tent was fairly cosy and dry. It has a handy little pocket at the door for putting stuff you might need to suddenly grab, like a lighter or bottle opener, and the space at the door between sheets is more than enough for shoes and more alcohol.
Have used it once since and had the same experience. It more than exceeded my expectations for £20.
