This tent is really large and has a big living space which is great if it rains. It could also sleep more people if they don't mind not being in an inner tent.

It is really tall, and you can stand up in all parts of the tent including the inners. (My husband is 6'4 and he can stand comfortably in it)

It is easy to put up and has a sewn in groundsheet that keeps out water and wind.

It will sleep 8 people but in reality the two larger inner tents sleep two adults comfortably and the small inner tent one person, meaning that it comfortably sleeps 5 adults. However this can be said of most tents.

As the tent is so large it does feel the wind and the front area needs more pegging points as the wind blows underneath the groundsheet.

It is a great tent for a family, especially if the weather isn't perfect.

Yes, very spacious - so spacious, in fact, that it verges on the unstable, due to an inexplicable lack of guy ropes or other securing devices for the huge tunnel section at the front. So it's very noisy and flappy in the wind, with puddles on the roof and under the front section of the groundsheet. On the positive side, it's pretty watertight and easy-ish to erect considering its size. It would benefit from more flexible ventilation options, and I'm still looking for the cable tidy and the repair kit.Rumour has it that this one's being redesigned for next year, so maybe hold off till then.

My 1st tent. Its Huge! 3 bed rooms (3 x 3 person & 1 x 2 person) to sleep up to 8 in the rooms (5 in total comfort) But with a huge living area if you have guests who don’t mind sleeping in the living area than you could sleep an entire rugby team with subs coaches and physiotherapist!

I have 2 kids (9 and 3) and so its a little overkill I admit BUT when it rains you will appreciate the copious living area that even six foot plus men don’t need to duck to walk around in, comes with a DVD on how to put up and even if you break the DVD and its your 1st time putting a tent up its so logical that you will have the body of the tent up in 1/2 an hour and then a few minutes to put the bedrooms in and tine the ropes down.

This is an excellent tent for a family or group that want a large tent (8.2 x 8.5 mtr) with simple colour coded poles and a sewn in ground sheet a 1st class tent in every aspect, I couldn’t give it 10 out of 10 as it doesn’t erect itself and have a built in butler and nanny, But rest assured you wont go wrong if you select this tent.
