4 Reviews of the Aura 3

Update to first review. Used the tent over the last couple of days. Still pleased we bought it. As stated before not much room with one adult and two kids but it really was only used to sleep in and store clothes in.

We had continuous heavy rain overnight and into the morning and there were no leaks or drips. A slight wind got up but nothing that you wouldn't expect even the cheapest of tents to stand strong in so can't comment on wind. The zip on the bedroom pod is very cheaply made (although I guess inline with the brand and price) so care needs to be taken with it.

The curtains gaped a little as there was no Velcro to attach them too just toggles but it wasn't a huge issue but thought I'd mention it.

I wouldn't pay full price for this tent unless it's exactly what you want but if you get it on offer like I did, I'd grab it.

We were looking for a weekend tent. Easy to pitch instructions easy to follow. This is what we got from this tent. First pitch took 20 mins. Head room great. We had two adults and dog. Think space would be tight if three adults. We used in weather conditions of hard frost , heavy rain and sunshine. Tent performed well. Would have been nice to have extra poles to make front door a canopy. Value for money.

Bad points.

Although sewn in ground sheet main door does not zip along bottom just velcro. High winds it does flap. You do get condensation but that is a problem with most tent fabric. Side vents could do with something in to stand open may help

Really easy and about 20 minutes to put up, living space is good for 2 adults only I would say. It is a little draughty in a stiff wind as there's no Velcro on the bottom of the outer front door. The best thing is the head height, I spent so many previous camping years with a bowed head, so this one is great. We were in a real rainstorm this weekend and not one drop of water inside as the sewn-in groundsheet is fantastic. Really recommended.

I bought this tent for my daughter and her 2 small children, ideally I'd have liked bigger and wished they had a 4 person one, however I bought it for £130. Fly screen on door, fully sewn in ground sheet.

It took me and my daughter 20 minutes to get it up (minus the guy lines). Was reasonably simple. There are 3 colour coded fibreglass poles although the middle pole is only fibreglass on the roof section, the side poles are steel, I'm assuming this adds a little more stability but as this was a test pitch in the garden there were no adverse conditions to test this out. Pitches outer first or after initial use pitches all in one. The green colour is brighter than I remember from the shop but I don't chose my tent based on colour so I'm fine with it.

The bedroom fits one double and one single average sized air bed but there is no space left for storing anything although there are storage pockets. The living area is small (around the size of the bedroom), but acceptable for 2-3 people.

There are 4 windows in the living area 2 that you roll the 'curtain' down and two which roll up.

Packing up was simple, and we even fitted the tent AND the poles back in the back. The pole bag is more substantial than I've had with similar price range tents with the top and bottom of the bag being lined with some filling to stop the poles pushing through the usually thin material bag.

There are patches of the different coloured tent materials for repairs supplied in an attached pocket in the bedroom.

I'm really pleased with my purchase, I gave it 8/10 since I hadn't used the tent overnight, I'll review against once it's been used as it should be

Manufacturer's Description

Hi Gear's Aura 3 is a sturdy, fully waterproof tent with a roomy living area that boasts large panoramic windows, letting plenty of light in and making it a great place to relax.

It's tall enough to stand up inside comfortably, and has a fully sewn-in groundsheet so you're totally protected from leaks, draughts and bugs.

The inner bedroom is made from breathable polyester, with mesh vents for good airflow throughout.

Easy to pitch, it uses strong fibreglass poles in reduced sleeves (less threading through, less stress!) so it will flex but remain stable in windy weather. The abundant guylines are brightly coloured, so it's easy to see on a dark campsite.

And there are extras available to make your camp even more homely and comfortable: the Aura 3 Carpet adds warmth and softness under your feet, the Aura 3 Footprint protects and insulates the groundsheet (and makes pitching even easier), and the Aura 3 Porch extends your sheltered space, giving you a large area for storage, dining or play.
