Hello camper's. I agree with Mollygamps - a pretty good tent overall. I'm a young-at-heart late 60s, recently widowed and haven't camped for over 30yrs when the sprogs were young'uns. Now a recycled teenager so fancied having another bash at it both alone and with family/friends so bought TWO tents. A pop-up when on my own and the Atlantis 4 when with sprogs / grandkids / anybody? Tried it out just for one night with 1 daughter + 2 teenage g/kids. Living area nice-n-cosy, very tight squeeze bedroom for 2 double airbeds so next time there's 4 of us will take 1 double + 2 singles, one of which can stay in living area, climate permitting. Would be ample room in b/room if 4 occupants were on sleep mats but they're not for me thank you.
Looked especially for SIG to keep nasties out (ugh) so my only real gripe with this tent are the doors; zip down both sides but along the bottom is just toggled which still leaves an accessible gap for unwelcome lodgers! Our big 6man tent from years ago had sig + fully zipped door's, expected same with this one. Bought off web, none near me to inspect. Ah well. Sitting out during evening having the odd drink (as you do) when it started to rain so in went us, chairs/table, girl's watched dvd laid on their beds whilst sprog + I continued our chat and imbibed a little(?) more.
As for head height, standing 4'10' in me socks had no problem! As for attached bedroom. Good - fully enclosed if zipped up. Bad - bit of a struggle to expel all air when dismantling even with all zips open but after sweating cobs managed it. PS.Would advise paying a bit extra for footprint g/sheet, easier to clean and helps protect tent g/sheet.

We are really impressed with this tent. It didn't take too long to pitch- about half an hour. It's supposed to be a 4 berth but I think it would be a squeeze with 4 people. There are only 3 of us (two adults and a child) so it was fine- the sleeping compartment fits 3 large airbeds easily, with a bit of room left for wash bags etc. The living area fits a camp kitchen and table with two chairs- three chairs at a squeeze on rainy days. I'm 5'8 and I could stand up and move around in both the living area and the bedroom, no problem. It is as cozy and draft proof as a tent can be. You can zip up the large vent at the back of the tent- so you won't get the wind howling in in the night.
The only problem we found was that the flaps that cover the outside of the zips are only held down by three bits of velcro, one at the top, middle and bottom of the zip. When it rained the flaps just lifted in the wind and the rain seeped in through the zips. Nothing a bit of sealant and some more Velcro can't sort though. No other leaks at all and the structure doesn't flap in the wind.
The tent doesn't come with poles to convert one of the doors as a porch, but there are holes to support them.
We also liked the colour- it was very light inside the tent and the blue made it seem much brighter than it actually was on rainy days!
The tent ideally needs an additional ground sheet - the one that is built in is perfect- but there's nothing worse than trying to clean it before you pack it all away in the bag. Oh, and it fit's back in the bag easier than other tents I've tried to cram away in the past!
Overall- great value for money- fab tent!
