This is our third tent. As we enjoy camping, we were after a tent that we could cook in, and stand up in. This one ticked all the boxes. We also liked the mesh doors, as this gave good ventilation. We did have quite a bit of rain which tested out the waterproofing!

One thing we will say is that if you are going to do a lot of cooking, then open up one of the doors as it can get quite steamy otherwise.

It took us about an hour in the rain and about half that the second time, which was dry. We look forward to more fun camping trips with this good all round tent.

Just bought one of these tents.Never put a tent up in my life!, had a quick trial run on the lawn,didn't fit the inner bedroom, just wanted to erect the main flysheet to see how hard it was gonna be. Went camping a few days later and it prob. Took a good hour to get it all set up,all the guy-lines etc. The guy in the shop (Go-Outdoors at Wakefield) was very helpful and said it would take about half an hour or more. He obviously wasn't including camping dummies like me in that sort of timescale. Still not sure if I'm doing it right or wrong but it was good fun none the less.

The only thing I would change would be the 'front door',it has no mozzy net like the 2 side doors.The tent has 4 poles and I must admit it's a bit harder than I imagined trying to get the 2 main crossover poles in place.We found it easier to fit the two front ones after the 2 big main ones.There are 2 'tension straps'? fitted to the bottom of the fly sheet but I couldn't get the poles in the pegs with these attached (they don't adjust). I just undid them and after slight adjustments to the poles and a bit of re-pegging the tent seemed to look the right shape but I've got a funny feeling I'm doing something wrong.

I'm sure other campers will en-lighten me or take the mick on further trips that we are planning now that our maiden trip went fairly smooth and the weather stayed nice (not sure how we'll fare if it doesn't). I expect I'll take up bowling or pipe smoking and buy a tourer or a motor home next year lol.

Just purchased the Gobi 4 because it appeared to have all the things we were looking for in a quick pitch short stay tent. Used it last weekend, end of May 09 for the first time, and we were overall very pleased with it. The sides are relatively vertical in the living area, which makes the space more usable than some dome style tents, and the overall height is more than adequate for all but the very tall. Having three doors make it easy to pitch to suit the ground and still have a door where you would like it. I paid 99 for mine and that has to be good value as it looks well made and from decent materials to me (only time will tell I guess).

The Cons:- The groundsheet is attached to the inner tent and although it covers the living area, in colder months you will get cold air passing through under the flysheet. The doors only have a one directional zip so you can't open the top half of the door for ventilation leaving the bottom zipped, but for 99 you can't expect everything.

It took us about 20 mins to pitch start to finish but I'm sure if you had to you could half that, I'm equally sure you could double it if you're not used to putting tents up though! All in all a good buy and it goes back in the bag easily!

Manufacturer's Description

An updated version of Hi Gear''s popular dome tent, ideal for weekends away with family or friends.

Hi Gear''s Gobi 4 Elite is a semi-geodesic dome style tent, with crossed-over fibreglass poles that keep it stable even in very windy weather.

It has a large front door and 2 additional side doors for easy access and total ventilation, and a fully sewn-in groundsheet that keeps out draughts, rain and insects.

The two large front windows have roll up curtains so you can let light in or keep your privacy, and front enclosed mesh vents also aid the ventilation.
