This is our weekender (in the hopes we take less equipment). Its a great tent, we have just had a couple of days in the new forest followed by a couple of days in Dorset. It was wet and muddy but the tent withstood it all. I was worried that we might not have enough space as our regular tent is a gelert Utah 4+4 but no problems at all in fact it was great to get back to what camping should be about ie; not taking everything and the kitchen sink. Don't get me wrong the Arizona isn't a small tent, there's plenty of space for chairs if its wet and the bedrooms roomy enough for clothes storage at the end of the bed (this is based on 2 people sharing the tent). One of the best things about it though and the reason we actually bought it is the head height. We wanted a weekend tent we could stand up in that felt light and airy and this fulfils that criteria easily.

We are very happy campers!

Agree with all the positives already mentioned. It's quick to put up, looks great and doesn't look stupidly big like a circus tent some people take away with them nowadays due to a compact footprint. Best to pitch on flat ground, had water running into the porch area during a downpour on a slope but that's a lesson learned. 3 adults would be a squeeze but 2 adults and a small child would be fine. If you want to do 2 and 3 day breaks and save time putting up and taking down a tent that also gives good space and comfort you cannot go wrong with the Arizona L.

I bought the tent in March 2010 and used it since for a camping weekend. Unfortunately we had good weather conditions so there won’t be experience with bad weather. We had about 35 km/h wind while erecting the tent and the first day. It was stable with the bracing cords. We got the apparent newer version of the Arizona L with sewed on floor canvas. Fully recommendable for two persons on one weekend :-)

We bought this tent after reading loads of reviews, we wanted a smaller tent than our Suncamp Prism, so that my husband and I can go away without the kids. We have not been disappointed! It is easy to pitch and take down, has loads of room in the living area.Very good for a couple ( and our dog!). The sleeping area is spacious enough for the 2 of us, and we have even considered taking the kids for an overnight stay in it.

I will use this tent a great deal especially for longer breaks and holidays without the kids. We will have to use our Prism for longer hols with the kids. There is plenty of headroom, the 2 doors were excellent during this past very hot weekend. The ventilation was very good, although there was a little condensation, probably due to the cool nights compared to the scorching days! We didn't have any rain so I can't comment on that, although I really have no doubts about the standard of waterproofing due to the earlier reviews. The only niggle I have, and it is very tiny, there is no mesh to keep out the bugs,but I suppose you can't avoid them all when you're camping anyway!

I really can't wait to get this tent out again.Going to plan our next adventure now!

The best thing about this tent is the overall height and space for such a small tent - it makes life so much easier when you can stand up inside when changing, etc. The sleeping area is for 3, we managed comfortably 2 adults, a child and a very large bag. The porch area is fantastic too, we had plenty of room to sit in it, even with our dog cage. I was also impressed at how easy it is to erect. We have had ours for a number of years, but because of caravanning haven't used it. Had no problem erecting it within minutes even without instruction, as the places for the poles are clearly indicated on the tent and colour coordinated to indicate which pole goes where. We have a number of tents that we have collected and used over the years (before we started caravanning), and I can state that this is the best.

What a great little (sort of) tent! We bought one because we have a Gelert Lokon 5 for camping trips of over a week (not worth putting it up for a weekend! Takes too long!) and we wanted something that would only take us 10 mins or so to put up and take down, that had enough head room for a 6'3'' person to stand up in and had somewhere that was suitable for a kitchen/sitting area. Well this fits the bill exactly!

Our first attempt last weekend, without even having taken it out of the bag before, was 15 minutes from getting it out of the bag to up and ready for our stuff. Three poles mean it is really easy to put up, even with one person who has never been camping before (my husband) and didn't know what he was doing.

The tent is spacious enough for two adults and all the associated bags and bit's and pieces that they need. There was more than enough room for us to have a table and two seats in the front area when it rained. When the sun shone we opened both doors (side and front)and it made it seem even bigger.

We had no leaks through any of the seams which was good, and it stood up to some quite heavy winds well.

The only issue I have is that there is quite a large gap between the bottom edge of the flysheet (around the bedroom part) which let in the wind a bit and probably some rain too. They have put a mud valance around the living area and I don't know why they couldn't continue that around the whole of the tent to make it a bit more cosy.

That's it though, otherwise it's great!

Love this tent! We have a larger Outwell but wanted something quick to put up for a couple of nights but big enough to accommodate us - 2 adults and 2 dogs. First time out the weather was awful - however the tent stood up well to the torrential rain and the gusty winds. We have now added a tarp to give us some outside shelter from the elements. Its a great tent for a few nights away, quick and easy to put up and down and small enough to chuck in the car and be on your way! Highly recommended.

The best features are the J door (side door), the zips, which are very robust and work a treat, and of course the head room. I can't fathom the previous complaint re the doors.All tent doors slope. There's a basic camping trick to clear rainwater/dew off a tent door and the area above it. The only flaw I found was the bedroom area could do with a bit more pegging as it whips up a bit in strong winds. However as I always pack too much this problem was eased by storing stuff down the side between the inner and outer.

Excellent tent , good quality , lots of room we have named it the tardis. There is plenty of room for two adults, and all your camping gear. Just camped in it had two full days of heavy rain no leaks. Plenty of room in bedroom area for storage. This tent only took us 15min to pitch ,guy out etc. This tent is perfect for a couple who want to pitch quickly and be able to stand up and have plenty of room. I took a point of as I think they should have put mud flaps all around the tent not just living area .

We bought the Outwell in the end thanks to comments on here we are so happy as we have just been to Deers Glade in Norfolk for 4 days prior to the Aug bank holls

My wife is a first season camper and as we had fantastic weather she is now looking forward to another camp soon: now about the Arizona L tent easy to put up with 2 people spread tent on ground fit 3 poles lift up run round clipping poles in pins and its up then just peg out and its done:as reported it is well ventilated we had no condensation on the inside just a slight sheen on the flysheet:we love the stand up height for getting dressed in:the wind picked up at night and we just let the guy lines out a little to add some sag it rattled a bit but took the wind very well for a 6 foot tall tent:we had no problem with the lack of mud valance around the bedroom as we have 3&4 season sleeping bags:we have not had a major rain test we will report on this in future:we found the ground sheet in the front a little short as the wind lifted it at the edges we may invest in the footprint & carpet or we may be able to adapt it so you can tie it to the mud valance strings provided to raise it at the front door edge:

Niggles we spotted = inner pocket was stitched to bathtub ground sheet seam in bedroom had to unpick the mesh and re seal the seam & small L shaped 3/16 rip in fly 3 inches up at left hand front lower pillar between the doors sealed with a blob of seam sealer this is a brand new tent Aug 2009

We are happy with this tent and hope to find more good campsites soon
