As a single Mum to a six year old (and a Labrador) I was looking for a tent that would be easy to erect by myself(we're novice campers)and be comfortable to sleep in for up to a couple of weeks.

This tent doesn't disappoint. Its up in minutes, is plenty big enough for our needs and is back in its bag in minutes when its time to go home.

We're looking forward to many happy camping trips in this tent.

The only disappointment is there isn't more of a canopy at the front, but the large living area makes up for this.

Bought this today to use as a weekend tent. (we have a tunnel tent for holiday camping but it takes too long to set up for an overnight stop). Little bit dubious and we have been mulling it over for ages. We had lots of comments from friends like 'good luck getting that back in the bag - love to watch you try' etc. All our concerns completely dismissed. Watched and followed the youtube video while we gave it a try in our back garden. It was so simple and quick. We had it down in less than 10 minutes and it packs up really small. There are some really nice touches, like the way that the groundsheet fits into the tent and the big windows. Can't wait for some good weather so we can put it up in minutes on a Friday night after work and then sit and relax with a beer, knowing it will only take minutes to get it packed away at the end of the weekend.

Have just got back from 6 days in the lakes and I am really impressed with this tent. It withstood some pretty blustery winds and a major 2 day down pour which left a mini lake right under the main living area.No leaks!

Putting it up was really easy and putting it down was just as simple.

We connected it up to a Seconds Base Full to extend the main living space and added a 2 second air alongside for me and my husband (and the dog!). Our two boys had a room each in the 4.2 and had loads of space to explode in without trashing the living areas.

I can't recommend these tents enough! Even buying them was an experience; travelling across London on the underground from Surrey Quays to Waterloo with them on our backs. Priceless!

I wanted to be first! Darn. Well to add to the above comments. The tent is so simple to put up and has survived a decent wind and some (not torrential) rain. It was brilliant for just hanging out in and provided a genuine home from home. Putting away took nearly the same time as putting up and was simple too do. You can put up and take down with one person at a struggle or two with ease. I actually went on holiday with friends who had pole tents and just watching them struggle made me realise how amazing the 4.2 tent is. It is slightly breezy in terms of ventilation but this was my first time camping and so have nothing to compare it too. I actually paid over the odds with 189 on ebay but was worth every penny because it made my holiday so special.

This tent is simply fantastic. Can genuinely be erected in under 5 minutes, I have seen 2 Decathlon demonstrators do it in 1:17, for the non-trained about 2 mins to open bag and peg down main ground sheet, 30 secs to pop up central part, 2 mins to unclip and pull four zips (already attached) to secure down bedroom canopies. Simply amazing design. Lots of ceiling hooks, bedroom pockets, survived the wind and downpours at the beginning of May (09) without a drip. Yes, just as easy to pack away. There are cheaper 4 man tents than the asking price of 149, but none half as good. Well worth a trip to the Decathlon store, no, I really do not work for them !
