4 Reviews of the Instant 5 Dome

I bought this tent for w/ends away. It's true that its easy to put-up, less than ten mins for 1 person including guying out,unfortunately, in my own experience, thats the only good point.

Being a single skin, condensation can be a real problem.

There were only 2 of us in the tent,(Rynys farm/sept 2016)

Being in a mountainous area it was quite cold in the evening,the degree of condensation in the tent made everything damp and cold, never again !.

These tents are ok for a quick stopover in summer, or a festival.

Great weekend tent for up to 2 adults and 2 smaller children. Enough room for a weekend bag inside, but if you can use your car as a cupboard then you could use this as sleeping-only space for 4 adults. But 5? Hmmm! This tent is light and takes up hardly any space in the car. It does go up in about 1 minute, then another minute to peg and guy. Putting away takes a little longer but only because you have to fold it up to put it back in the bag - it's still well under 5 minutes. As others have said you will get condensation on the inside as it's a single skin tent. There are roof vents but it could do with more. Keep heads, pillows, bags, etc away from the sides and you won't get things damp. It's tall enough to mean you can get dressed in it without having to wriggle clothes on lying on your back. As it's a dome, if it's raining and you open the door the rain will come in. We partner ours with a Coleman Basic Awning which goes all the way over the top and gives us a good 6ft of head-height cover out the front. We can cook and eat there if we need to as there's plenty of room for a table.

We paid £99 for ours and I think if you can get it for anywhere near that then this is a great bit of kit for weekends, events or just for the kids to camp in the garden.

Very easy to pitch and disassemble. The build up of condensation with 3 people in the tent is noticeable but the tent is very waterproof.

We had two adults and an 11 year old in the tent and found this as 'cosy' as we would like it. Doubt very much if you could fit 5 adults and their kit, cooking gear etc.

Very good for a weekend away but we'll continue to use our Outwell Vermont for longer trips.

Fantastically easy to pitch and take down, about two minutes each way. Can be a little difficult initially to force the pole clips down but gets easier with each use. Used in really heavy rain with no ingress. Winds light so can't comment on this. Does suffer from condensation but hey ho. I use with a Vango Adventure Tarp to give shelter over the entrance which improves it considerably. Good tent for quick weekends away. Only seven stars because of the condensation.
