This review is from a trial pitch in our back garden so first time out and once we have used it properly I will update. I've added a few pics too.

Firstly just to warn you the tent is huge! Ignore the packed dimensions given in the marketing material it is way bigger it swallows our boot! In terms of putting the tent up, it was easy, (although judging by my OH red face he might not say the same ) but soooo much easier and quicker than the poles it was up in 5 mins (excluding guy lines).

The fabric of the tent is lovely, you can feel it is much thicker than the normal polyester tent material. Space is fab and it does have the sleeptite system. The bedrooms were already in place so we didn't even have to do those.

The poles for the window canopies and side pod were a little difficult to get in but they did go in with a bit of effort, I think we were a little wary of stretching the material too much trying to get them in.

Putting it down was a doodle, we just opened the valves and sat back and watched! The instructions in the book tell you to close all doors and windows before letting it down which we did but wont next time as there seemed to be a lot of air in it, obvious I guess! Bag is plenty big enough and we got it back in very easily.

Only sticking point for us was the toggle in bathtub ground sheet in the porch area we would have preferred a sewn in one as there seemed to be large gaps but that is just us and won't bother everyone and first time pitched we may not have done it right, we will probably modify ours.

Other than that, not disappointed and look forward to using it for real, apart from we won't get anything else in the car! 9 out of 10 is because of the toggle in rather than sewn in porch ground sheet, but as I say everyone will be different on how they view this!
