8 Reviews of the Airgo Cirrus 6

By: Happiecamp  Reason: I own(ed) one  Made in: 2014   Rating:   Date: 02/06/2015

I love my tent, with the porch is very roomy, the porch is an absolute pain however to attatch to the tent and pings off the front in a little wind. Used the tent 3 times now, 4 adults, one child and two dogs is the most we've had stay and its plenty big enough.

The door flapping is an issue if your facing into the wind and rain - water does blow in - we tried pulling the front more taught which made no difference - with the porch attached this was not a problem.

My previous tent was a Montana 6 and I don't miss it a bit now I've discovered inflatable tents.

With a rally of 3 we had it up in around 2 minutes, then a group effort of pegging out we had the kettle on within 10 and sat and watched others pitching their pole tents.

It's stood up to torrential down poors and in the wind tunnel that is hayfield valley in the Peak District. We even had a quick but heavy downpour of hailstone.

The fly screens I agree are very thin but these did not snag even with my two dogs jumping up at them and clawing at them.

The outer fabric feels much thicker than any I've ever felt.

Putting down the tent was also really easy - we undid the air valves, left it to deflate and within 10mins was flat enough to fold and roll back into the bag.

There are plenty of air vents to avoid condensation and I loved the zip open vent behind the bedrooms that allowed for plenty of ventilation.

The only problem we found with the bedrooms is the back really does sag and there is a lot of wasted space behind the bedrooms, could of done with a couple of loops to attach the back of bedrooms to the back of the tent, even pushing firmly on the inner tent towards the back it's a foot away from the outer tent - I must admit the dogs enjoyed roaming in that space though!

All in all, a good tent for the price, 9/10 due to front door flapping, and the porch being an absolute pain to attatch.

Loved most - the fact it inflates all as one and not separate tubes to mess with, we were told at purchase that replacement tubes are available directly from hi gear though I was not told the price of this.

Bought this tent last year in the sale. Finally just used it for a week away. Easy to pump up no problems there as reading other reviews on here seeing they had problems. Plenty of space in living area also bedrooms. No way can this be a 6 berth tho. No probs with drafts from the doors. Only problem we had was when doing up the doors they can be a little hard at times.

But overall great tent good buy

Bought the cirrus 6 as our 1st ever tent. We now realise we should have got one with a porch as not all sites allow gazebos! Where else do you cook. Tent is very easy to put up and take down. Definitely not for 6 though. Pleased with the quality but wish we had done more research. Still you live and learn.

Just got back from a camping trip in Devon where we arrived with our Khyam Quick Erect 4 Beth tent on the Friday and bought the Hi-Gear Cirrus 6 the next day. So we had a day of erecting a new tent, moving all our stuff and taking down the old one. That's the scene set. The Hi-Gear Cirrus 6 is a wonderful tent and we had a great week with it. A couple of very small niggles which would not take long to sort by Hi-Gear. It would be so much better if the canopy was over both side doors and the zip for cables was on both sides and wire tapes put on both side for the overhead light. We wanted to use the door with the canopy but that meant having the kitchen and electrics over the other side, so we had to bring the cable in through the bottom of the door and could not tape up the light wire. All small things, which did not spoil our joy of the tent. We did not manage to get it back in the bag, but it think that was because we rolled it, rather than folded it, and so we are going to have some practice of this now we are back home. But putting it ill and taking it down was a dream. Wish there was a video showing you how to fold it up and pack it away. We can find ones showing you how to put it up. We did try to remember how it went when we opened it for the first time, but memory failed us when packing it up.Getting old! We love our new tent.

Love my tent! First one I have actually owned and I wanted it to be easy to put up with no husband with me on the trip. We practised in the garden before we went and on the day followed the instructions to the letter - it went up so easily. It was warm, stood up to the English wet weather and winds and was spacious enough for the three of us using it - we had high camp beds which meant plenty of storage for our bags underneath them, Personally, I would not put more than 4 in the tent max as it is a bit squishy otherwise. Loved the option of mesh window cover to keep out the flies, or clear plastic cover when raining. Let in loads of light with all three sides having large windows/doors. The canopy over the side door meant even when it rained you could enter and exit the tent without the rain coming in - I would like to see a door canopy over the door on the other side too so it gave better options of which side to use for exit. Carpet helped make it cosy underfoot. The tent did not sag at all - but we did take care when putting up to get it as flat and straight as we could before pegging down.

Did not think much to the pump it came with and found a yellow stirrup pump very similar to the black one actually pumped up much more easily. Packed away just as fast as it went up - no problems with air in the beams and no tent flapping around as several around us had with their tunnel pole tents. Packed into the bag easily. So = really love my tent but one word of advice - make sure to PACK THE PUMP! We were near a Go Outdoors so getting a nice new cheap pump was not a disaster(especially as the yellow one was much speedier) but we are unlikely to be near a Go Outdoors every time!

Bought this tent to replace our Outwell Montana with something that I could put up by myself with the aid of our 6 and 8 yr old. Very impressed with how easily it went up and down in the shop. Did a trial run in the back garden with my son - we put down the footprint, pegged out corners of the tent and inflated it in under 15 mins including getting it out from the garage, taking the tent out of the bag and working out how to pump it up. Tip for women - wear garden gloves to protect hands and try not to wear a billowing skirt when pumping it up otherwise the skirt will get sucked to the pump on inflation!

Then it was taken for a weekend field test! And what a test it was! We pitched at dusk during a thunderstorm and managed to get it up okay. During the night we had another storm and it still survived. Found a small puddle in the morning but think it was due to where the tent fabric wasn't taut enough while trying to pitch during the hammering rain.

We made the sleeping area into one room by unzipping the dividing fabric - this was not possible with our Outwell as the bedrooms were two separate compartments. We knew that we'd have the children up during the storm so this was a real bonus. We were able to put up two double airbeds and one single in this 'double' space - more Brownie points. Considering it used to take us best part of an hour to pitch our last tent, this one takes about 20 mins . And I should be able to do it by myself as I don't have to reach up high or struggle putting pole pins in

The tent has plenty of pockets in the sleeping and living areas and a well placed lantern point. Our Outwell had one right in the centre which meant that my husband constantly knocked his head on it! We also think that this tent is much taller than the Outwell so it would be perfect for taller campers.

Taking the tent down was a doddle too. I thought that we'd have pockets of air left in the beams but that wasn't so. . Getting the tent, pump and king poles into the bag was easy too.

Haven't given it 10 stars as we haven't tried out the carpet yet and agree with previous review that fly mesh is very fine and liable to snag easily. I'd have preferred curtains that are zipped, like the inflatable Outwell, but we couldn't justify the price tag of the competitors.

Can't wait to take it over to Europe in a few weeks! Happy camping.

We bought ours in May '14, overall the tent's not bad at all for the money, however you need to be quite fit to manage to pump it up in sixty seconds! It's great not messing with poles to pitch the tent, but once inflated be careful to close the doors fully before pegging out all the ropes as it's easy to over tension the zips of the doors making it difficult to open/close them later. The air beams are strong and the tent material is thicker than our previous tent. You need to fiddle a little to get the carpet to lay flat in all corners, probably, an alignment issue again? The tent is not a six berth if using air beds, it's tight for four with bags of clothing in reality. The living area is ok but could do with a porch extension for added space. It unpacks/packs quite easily and although the bag is large, we haven't struggled to put it away. We prefer it to our previous one with poles however we would like more space, the other 8 berth version didn't have the same layout design and we didn't like it. We need a porch please.

Ok, so my 1st review for a tent! this is the cirrus 6 , 1st impressions, packed down in its bag, it is a very big & heavy tent, taking half the boot space of my Citroen c5 estate, taking it out of the bag unrolling and inflating in less than 5 minutes, can be done by 1 person but 2 better as the 2nd person can help straighten the air beams out as they inflate, the sig to peg out and 14 guys , takes approx 20 minutes,and the tent was very stable ! the quality of the tent material is good and has a hh of 6000 which more than proved itself the 1st night in Cornwall , with no leaks, as for the rest of the tent ?? :-( the curtains are fold down and fasten up with velcro tags the 4 side curtains are fine , but the front curtain is to big for the window and does not line up with the tags leaving it sagging badly, the 3 doors do not zip up fully but there are 3 strips of small velcro that is supposed to fasten the bottom , ?? does not work ! leaving the bottom of the doors flapping when windy and very drafty, there are fly meshes to each entry, although a very fine material that gets pulls / snags easily , we also found the inner bedroom compartments also sag ! the carpet looks like it was taken from the scraps bin ( 2 different shades ) and sewn together badly, even with 2 of us , it suffered badly with condensation with all vents open ?? a 6 berth tent , not suited to 6 ?? the living area is relatively small as you will see from the photos, there are myself and the missus so its not to bad , but a family of six would have to be very friendly, all in all . A usable tent, but poor attention to detail , made to a price so it is not upto the standards on Vango or Outwell , I can live with these little niggles except for the carpet , and go outdoors have my tent, and have admitted they are aware of and not happy with these problems and are working with hi gear to correct , as for my tent ?? will see what go outdoors say and do for us ??

The Hi Gear Airgo Cirrus 6 is an easily pitched, roomy tent that can accomodate 6 campers and their gear with space to spare.

Part of the Hi Gear Airgo range, it takes the hassle out of setting up your tent. Built using highly robust double skinned beams that are simply filled with air using the included stirrup pump, it provides a rigid pole-free frame in minutes. Setup is simple, quick and easy - all the beams are connected so they inflate from a single inflation point.

The inners are made using breathable fabric with mesh venting for extra ventilation, with multiple tent tidy pockets for simple storage.

It boasts a large front door and 2 side doors, for easy entry and total ventilation. One side door has a rain hood, so you can keep it open even in wet weather without rain getting inside.
