1 Reviews of the Filey 5 Air
By: Sar H Reason: I own(ed) one Made in: 2013 Rating: Date: 03/09/2013
Overall this is a pretty well-designed and useful tent. We were told it could be erected in 10 minutes! You CAN inflate it in a few minutes but the pegging out and fitting of the groundsheet in the front area takes a lot longer. We have only used it twice but from getting it out of the bag to unpacking the kettle is nearer 2 hours so far.
The inner tent gets very warm but has some good ventilation. It is cosy and the bedrooms are dark so you don't get woken at dawn! There is quite a problem with condensation, it can pool in the inner roof and pour down at times. The outer porch does not have curtains, and the front doors can only be opened from the bottom up. This is a shame as being able to open the top of the doors just a little would help with condensation here too. The small mesh windows between the inner and outer rooms are a nice touch - we left these open most of the time. The pockets on the wall between the two larger bedroom are extremely useful - I couldn't see the point of them until I actually used the tent, but they are a very sensible addition. I like the fact the bedrooms can be accessed from one another which makes the space very flexible.
A problem we have with the tent is the size of it when being moved or stored. It is huge! It fits easily into the supplied bag but is very heavy, and we are having to buy a new car as it takes up so much room.
Overall this is a large and cosy tent. For a family, or for people like us who want plenty of living space, it is excellent (as long as you have somewhere to store it over the winter).
