Bought as a weekend family tent, this is well designed and made, with steel poles creating a bigger inner volume than the otherwise similar Vango Icarus, and also giving it a much sturdier feel. We have an Outwell Montana 6 as our 'big' tent, and I'm struck by the similarities of design - which is a good thing! Only used it for one weekend so far but quick to erect and take down, easy to pack and weighs less than half what the Monty does, so an excellent family tent for short breaks. Teamed with a Vango family shelter (tarp) it's even more versatile.
