1 Reviews of the Oak Canyon 6

By: Mudbound  Reason: I own(ed) one  Made in: 2017   Rating:   Date: 27/06/2017

An amazing tent but difficult to get hold of in the UK - heaven knows why. I got mine from Germany, simply because the spec did everything I needed.

The Oak Canyons are basically upgraded Vespuccis. The OC6 has two flymesh doors (as opposed to one on the V6). Also, the small door opens on both sides, meaning it can also used as an awning (rather than the side opening on the V6 which canít).

The blackout - while not total - is incredible. We slept through to 8:30 in a sunny late June! One issue to bear in mind is that the bedroom walls are slightly see-through. A mixed party would need to take care when changing by torchlight or when daylight is shining into the bedroom. You could easily hang an extra sheet between the two separate bedrooms but not the 2+2 split room (unless you pinned it).

The bedroom configuration is a totally flexible 2+[2+2], with either or both rooms removable. The central wall in the 2+2 room removes totally flat so a double mattress can straddle the join for his-and-hers floor space.

Headroom and living space are almost epic. It would be cozy with 6 but by no means unpleasant. Two adults and an 8-year-old rattled around.

I got the tent up single-handed in around 50 minutes. The supplied pegs are regulation useless so I upgraded before I even set off. Getting the tent down was okay, but getting it back into the bag was a major struggle, even leaving out the pole and peg bags. The bag is too heavy to lift with these bags in so no great problem that they wouldnít fit. (But why donít tent companies produce videos showing you how to pack?)

It loses a mark for three things:

* No eyebrow above either door, meaning water ingress would be an issue in heavy rain.

* The large door would be better bigger, giving a more open feel in fine weather.

* Lack of (visual!) privacy between bedrooms.

Otherwise perfectly happy.
