We loved this tent loads of room brought the carpet

Fly sheet and wind breakers to match but leaked on a lot of window seams. Also had problems with main door zip under a lot of pressure to close, very poor finish at base of door, could do with velcro maybe. However go out doors were great, changed every item upon return from holiday. Great tent

Here we go another tent another review. I saw this tent on offer at go outdoors so I checked the reviews on here and I was quite impressed not only by the reviews but also by the offer price.

Good points. Very roomy, Well ventilated, Sturdy when pitched, Easy to erect (now camping alone), Useful canopy. All in all a very good tent.

Bad points. As mentioned in the other reviews there is an issue with the front door if pitched properly the door is virtually impossible to zip up and the lack of fastening at the bottom does make it draughty, that said the advice given on both counts is sound and works.

Being a practical kind of bloke during my recent stay in the tent I considered now to improve the front door situation and came up with the following. Add some tape to the fixing points for the leg clips (after removing the clips) and then refix the clips giving yourself approximately an extra inch on the lower three clips on both sides making sure you stitch them well.

As for the gap at the bottom the velcro idea is the answer. The above details are the only reason the tent missed out on a 10/10

I feel I must update this review due to some of the comments made in the forums.

During my stay at Cae Du over the royal wedding weekend and the following week the site and its inhabitants were subjected to a gale with winds hitting 55mph. While many so called premium or better quality tents were damaged or even destroyed my corado and at least one other Hi Gear tent survived undamaged as did a few other so called cheaper or inferior tents.

The Hi Gear range is made by one of the 'better' manufacturers for exclusive sale by Go Outdoors and the quality of the materials and manufacturing process have to adhere to the same standards as the other products made by this company.

So basically if you choose a Hi Gear tent you are not buying an inferior product you are buying a quality product at a lower price.

Good points - large and spacious living area. Good sized porch, especially if used with porch extension. This stood up to high winds and rain without leakage or damage. Very cosy with the carpet.

Bad points / poor design faults.

Main doorway - when I bought a tent with attached ground sheet and carpet I expected it to be all sealed from the elements and insects when all doors are shut. This is NOT the case. It wouldn't leak but it does leave a huge gap at the bottom of the door to blow in the wind and let in insects. The ground sheet in the doorway flaps down in the daytime so you don't have to step over it, and at night it lifts up and fastens to the side of the door with toggles, but it doesn't fasten to the bottom of the door. Even if you added extra velcro it wouldn't completely seal from insects during the night.

Window coverings - you would expect these to hang from the top of the window like any other proven curtain design. But NO these hang upwards from underneath the window and only stay up with a small square of velcro on each corner which doesn't work well and they keep dropping down. Ideally these would be better held up with toggles or hung from the top of the window!

I also had trouble closing the door as it had been pitched with it open. I had to loosen the guide ropes and unclip the tent from the poles at the doorway. Next time I will pitch the tent with the door shut and hopefully this will prevent this being pulled too tight.

This is our first ever tent - spent days researching tents and wandering around tent shops trying to assess what we needed from a tent and this fit all the wants.

We are a family of 5 (2 adults, children aged 9,8,4) and this tent is very spacious and great for our family.

The bedrooms are large and easily fit 3 airbeds into each one - the pockets are very handy between the bedrooms.

The living space is huge - plenty big enough for the vast amount of 'essentials' that I had managed to accumulate! lol

The canopy at the front of the tent is a great size and can be used for cooking and storage as even when it rains the majority stays dry.

We bought the carpet to go in the tent which made it very snug and cosy - would def recommend this tent to anyone looking for space in a family tent.

A good combination of space and value for money. We have had problems with the front door.The first tent wouldn't close at all so the store replaced it and though better this one still struggles unless completely flat.We have to un-clip the tent from the poles which in windy weather can make it flappy. Also the door can be draughty so the velcro is a good tip. The most practical feature for us is the zipped bedroom compartments which you can have open with younger children and fasten to create 2 rooms a they grow. Porch too is handy for storage and cooking in drizzle.And removing boots before going inside. Would definitely recommend the carpet to add cosiness.

Overall, for occasional use go for this Value-for-money tent, but for more frequent or 'main-holiday' camping, I'd maybe opt for something sturdier like Outwell and pay more.

FANTASTIC. Roomy, bright, spacious, felt like being outdoors with all the windows. Large bedroom great for 4 of us on 3 double mattresses!

Extra canopy made a huge difference in 'wet' weather and gave extra room under cover. Same complaint as others, door wouldn't zip shut, and draughty under bottom of door.

Great tent though and would recommend.

We are first time campers and spent a long time checking out tents before settling on this one. It took about 25 minutes for us to get the tent up and then another 30 minutes or so to get it all pegged out etc. It was very simple to do although I would have struggled to do it on my own as it is heavy with the steel poles. Getting the tent down was also quick and easy, it all packs away with no problem.

We had quite a bit of rain over the weekend but no leaks and we were very cosy. Mornings were nice and dry and with all the ventilation offered. The storage in the bedrooms is great and there is loads of room in there for a double airbed and a couple of bags. The living space of the tent is great, we never felt squished in even though we had a large table and 4 big chairs. Bags of room for the kids to play about on the floor.

The only tiny issue is the front door as mentioned by others, we just moved the poles in a bit and the door zipped up fine. The gap at the bottom although not perfect does offer some ventilation during the night - I am considering adding some velcro depending on how we get on with the next few trips.

Can't wait to use the tent again, would highly recommend it.

We have just returned from a weekend camping trip using this tent. We previously had a Quechua T6.2 but wanting something with a sown in groundsheet and a bigger porch and living area. This tent was on offer and had everything we wanted.

The size is amazing. The strong tent poles are sturdy and stood up easily with the high winds this weekend. We also managed to put the tent up quite easily (considering we hadn't practised before the trip).

The downsides - which are quite minor really. The separate pole bag is very, very heavy and could do with splitting if you have room in your car. Also there are several air vents (which I'm sure will be great in hot weather) but high winds made the tent very drafty because they only have velcro in the corners. Before our next trip, I will be sowing velcro along the full length of the vents and across the bottom of the front door.

Other than that - very pleased with our new tent.

Just purchased this today, took it straight home and got it up and going within 45 minutes. Laying out the flysheet and knowing front from back took the longest. Once we knew porch end from bedroom end it flew up. And hubby being disabled still managed to help.Really is quite simple to erect. Plenty of headroom. Im 5'9' with a back problem and hubby has a knee problem so we needed a tent we could erect easily and just walk straight into and this fits the bill perfectly.Pole bag is very heavy to carry, but we have split the poles between 2 bags for ease of carry, tent bag is not too heavy. Just need to find a nice spot to pitch it now. Somewhere nice and peaceful with a great view.
