Bought this tent when it was on offer in Go Outdoors for under £100. We are a family of 6 and knew when we purchased it that it would be unlikely that we would all fit in the bed area (they never take into account airbeds when they are rating occupancy!) but my partner and I were more than happy to sleep in the main area. Even with our oversized double air bed in the main area there was still room to move around (we did deflate it each morning and put it in the bed area) It is a fantastic tent and money well spent, the pitch time is great and it is really easy. The only downside that I could come up with (and I had to try really hard) is that both of the outer doors have separate zips for the flysheet and outer, it would be so much easier if they were as one and could then be separated out (like the bedroom 'doors'). We did have to keep a towel on the floor by the door as when you open it the outer door comes in and drips water on the tent floor. Can't wait to use it again. All we need now is a canopy!

Husband and I bought the Voyager 6 when it was £99 deal in Go Outdoors.

We are a family of 4 (2 adults, toddler and a baby) so at first a 6 sleeper seemed to be too big but one we saw it on display in the shop we fell in love.

The living space is fantastic, great for little ones to play in and still with plenty of room for us to sit on 2 full size camping chairs with folding camping table and other bits in there with us (food boxes etc).

I am not entirely convinced that the bedroom would sleep six, we had 3 single airbeds, a pram top and lots of storage down one side, Perfect, but no way 6 airbeds could fit! 4 would fit fine but no extra space.

Flyscreens on doors worked really well and came in very handy (campsite midge infested lol).

Plenty of light through windows, which was nice because of midges I spent time inside with baby to keep him bite free.

Colour coded rods were very helpful when putting up tent. Husband said (as mentioned earlier) only took about 15 mins to erect (just tent, not guy ropes or inside sorted) with 2 people.

The lack of canopy (as mentioned before) is the only thing that marks it down. Go Outdoors did say that HiGear were in the process of thinking about one but I wont hold my breath just in case.

Would recommend this tent to anyone with a small family or just a couple with a pet. If you want a normal sized tent but with a huge living area look no further! SPOT ON!

I purchased this tent around 6 weeks ago, after seeing it out on Display in GoOutdoors at Coatbridge. I have kept off sending in a review until I have used the tent.

I have just used this tent last week for 5 nights in Dunfries area, with my wife and 2 kids. I have to say this tent is massively superior to my old tent. Having a huge living area, loads of windows and a sewn in groundsheet. We purchased the protective groundsheet, but are still pondering the carpet, as the runkling would annoy us, and seems hard to clean. We used a picnic blanket which we already owned as a trial, as it seems to be of a similar construction to the carpet, but are still undecided.

Anyway there were 3 issues we had with the tent itself on our excursion, and these were:

1) The vent at the back of the tent feeds straight into the bedrooms, as the main bedroom vent is directly opposite it, which means the bedroom area ends up freezing at night. I could close the vent on the outside of the tent, but was worried about condensation due to the SIG. I think I will modify the bedroom to compensate for future.

2) This tent did eventually start to let in water. To be fair though it was after 3 days of fairly consistent rain, and a thunderstorm, but as the tent was so large you could avoid the drips. (My old Gelert Tolima would have let in during the 1st night!)

3) I would like to see a canopy or porch for this tent, as you get significant water ingress when entering or leaving the tent when it has just rained or is still raining.

On another note the tent can get very warm during the Day especially in warmer temperatures, but as both doors have the Mesh flysheet it can be made very airy, without letting in loads of insects.

Other than that the tent is very good, and is a good purchase even although I got mine prior to the £99 bargain weekend, which left me quite gutted.

Brilliant tent and great value for money, it took me 20 minutes to put up and 20 mins to take down, with stood heavy wind and rain and all for £100 BARGAIN.

Massive Living area with loads of room to stand up.

Built in ground sheet which meAnt no water running under the tent, 2 large bedrooms which easily fits a family of 4 in there.

Overall I would recommend to everybody.

It also looks the part when erected.

Bought this tent for Go Outdoors because it was £299.99 reduced to £116.99 and the weekend I bought it there was a further 15% off making it £99.45 ish. What an excellent tent especially for this money although I would recommend a fairly large garden to put it up in, I live in a new house with small garden and only just got the tent up with 2 front and rear guy lines, however the tent was pretty stable even with just these pegged down.

I would recommend this tent as a great 4 person/family (2 adults, 2 children) tent both bedrooms seem to sleep 3 and 3 not 4 and 2 like the spec says (the partition for the bedroom is in the middle not offset like suggested). Survived a downpour whilst out and didn't leak. The living area is huge you could have 2 double air beds in there and still move around (honest it's huge). Overall a cracking tent would give it 10 out of 10 stars but the only thing that stops me is the lack of a porch/canopy option. (Please if you're reading this Hi Gear fetch one out!) also to add there is plenty of vents in this tent so excellent ventilation.

We usually go away in a Vango Aspen 500, but bought this as it was in go outdoors for 116. Our vango is a tent like no other we cannot find one as good, so we thought we would find one that is different. Whereas the vango is massively heavy, and straining to put up, the hi gear tent can be put up easy in 15 mins and all pegged down within half hour. I would even say that it can be put up alone if you have a sense of humour a bit of patience.

Once up , its really spacious and the bedroom section clips in afterwards. There are plenty of windows to add lots of light inside, fly nets on the 2 doors. Missing the hanging rail for our clothes that the Vango has, so our stuff was all along the edge and not as tidy as we usually camp. We did buy the rather costly carpet for 54 quid and as per the comments 2 down it does ruffle slightly, but a fellow camper suggested some of that self adhesive velcro that you can buy, so ill be sorted for next time. Plus it gets covered in grass and being fleece, its quite hard to clean.

Anyway. We have decided that this will be our weekend tent for convenience and the Vango for weeks away. If I hadn't first experience a whole season with the Vango , I would probably think this tent is spot on. There is however no porch to buy for this one. The only downside that I think worth mentioning, is how it suddenly turns into a balloon as you roll it to get it in the bag! but then again, its all part of camping.

Just used this tent for the first time and I can't fault it. My husband and I are complete tent novices but put it up in about 15 mins with no problems and all.

We love the huge living area which had ample space for all our stuff, and having the carpet in too made it really cosy.

We had a thunderstorm on our first night but the tent was up to the job with no leaks at all. Thoroughly recommended!

We brought this tent earlier on in the year . We have camped a few times in it in all weathers and it stands up to strong winds and heavy rain . Large living area is brilliant when weather is bad as plenty of space inside . Two bedrooms but we use other side to keep clothes etc in . If you want a spacious living area then I would recommend this tent . Go out doors has it selling for £99 pounds this weekend normal price with go out doors is £249 . Would also recommend the carpet which goes with the tent for extra comfort

Bought the tent as it was a reasonable price, had large enough bedrooms for two adults and one child, and had a large living area. Love the tent. Found it very spacious, easy to erect and put down.

Lovely to have a carpet to stand on too, however, my rating loses one point as the carpet cannot be connected to the tent and can runkle up if you are in and out of it a lot.

Would definitely recommend this tent to small families who want to use for weeks away.

Manufacturer's Description

A strong, stable and spacious 6-person tent with large windows and generous headroom.


Built using a strong semi-geodesic structure, the Hi Gear Voyager Elite 6 is an easily-pitched tent with room to accomodate 6 campers and all their gear.

It has a large, full-standing-height bedroom area, which can be adapted to convert some of the space into storage quarters if needed.

The groundsheet is sewn in, meaning you get no unwanted draughts, moisture or bugs getting in. Multiple windows (and mesh panels) let you control how much sunlight gets in, and maintain your privacy. The large front door and additional side door give you easy access for you and your gear, and also let you control ventilation.

It's stable enought to stand up to very windy conditions, with the cross-pole design giving it extra strength and flexibility.

A versatile tent that's great for families, groups of friends or festival-goers - and don't forget, you can add extra comfort and insulation by choosing the Hi Gear Voyager Elite Carpet, and extend your sheltered space by adding on the Hi Gear Voyager Elite 6 Porch.
