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.
The Cirrus 6's superb build quality, with strong guying points and multiple guy lines, ensure that it will stay stable and in one piece even in harsh weather conditions.
INFLATES IN 60 SECONDS! Comes with a stirrup pump for fast, easy inflation and deflation
