As this is a new model, please accept that this is of first impressions only. The rating must therefore be considered as +\- 2*!

We have used an Outwell Indian Lake for the past 4 years and it continues to serve us very well indeed, but is just too much for short weekend trips, and as a small family we have outgrown my venerable Vango F10 mk 5st.

We stumbled upon the Klondike at Camping World. The size is right and being 100% confident (through experience) in the robust and weatherproof nature of the poly cotton outers Oase use, are happy with a single skin tent - in the knowledge we can buy an inner if/ when we choose.

The tent pitches easily, and being able to leave the zig attached is a big plus. It's lower than the Lake, so should be much less of a handful in strong wind, and the shorter main pole easier to deal with, as well.

It's bell tent design is perhaps slightly more 'saggy' than I have had before, but if it stands up to 100mph winds as stated, then who cares!

Minor criticsms:

The lightwieght ground sheet. This may mean that it can be packed away as one, but not to offer a footprint? I have always tried to care for my tents, and this was a disappointment. However, after considering the options of huge rectangular tarps, even trampoline covers, The Canvas Tent Co online sold me an ideal sized and robust bell tent groundsheet which works a treat.

No line-loks as standard. The inline adjusters can fray guylines in my experience, so they've been changed with these little marvels already.

An inner metal D ring was in 3 pieces. Easily sorted with a ss split ring if we need it to attach an inner, but still.

Alloy pegs. I am so much less likely to carry this any distance (and so appreciate a few less grammes of weight) than come across hard ground needing robust steel pegs.

Overall, however, my first impressions are very positive indeed. I've never been tempted by the old school bell tents, mainly because of the fabric but I think we're going to love this tent.

Manufacturer's Description

The roomy Klondike tipi provides excellent levels of comfort for up to six people and has found a large enthusiastic following with families and groups. The improved zip-in groundsheet features a zip to the centre, enabling it to be rolled away at the door to create a safe area in which to use the optional stove and a place for muddy boots. The elasticated stovepipe port is now easier to use.
