7 Reviews of the Oasis 6

By: Fbsf  Reason: I own(ed) one  Made in: 2015   Rating:   Date: 02/09/2015

We've just returned from a fortnight in Vendee, France, where we experienced pretty much everything the weather could throw at us.

The Oasis 6 was fantastic. It stood firm in 65mph gusts and coped admirably with 36 hours of constant downpour (and I mean downpour - at one point it sounded like someone had opened a fire hydrant on top of the tent) with virtually no condensation inside due to the many vents.

When it warmed up, it was great to be able to sit inside the tent on the evening with all the doors open and the flyscreens zipped up, so we could have a cool breeze with the light on and no flies or creepy crawlies able to get in - a huge bonus for my daughter who runs a mile at the sight of a spider.

The canopy worked brilliantly as a 'front porch' so all the shoes could be left there in the dry before getting into the tent. Only the first two or three inches of canopy groundsheet got any rain on it, but of course this is dependant on which way the rain is falling.

I'm trying to think of any downsides - the only thing I can think of is that whilst there are enough pegs, they could do with all being the bent-sheet-metal type rather than half bent-sheet and half wire, which weren't a lot of use on the rocky soil we had on our pitch. We had a bunch of rock pegs which did the job, but I would recommend getting at least a dozen 'heavy duty' pegs to go along with it.

We bought the bundle with the footprint and carpet, and I can heartily recommend both. The footprint makes erecting the tent very simple as you can work out where it's going to go before getting the tent out of the bag, and it also keeps the tent dry underneath so packing away is a breeze. Talking of which, they provide an oversize tent bag, so it does actually fit back in afterwards!

The carpet provides a nice bit of comfort although isn't that thick - nice under foot but a bit thin to kneel on!

I can't recommend this enough - many other tents were leaking and a few fibreglass-poled tents snapped with the wind, yet ours remained solid, warm and dry.

We bought this after buying a tourer 6,comes in 2 bags the poles being very heavy but then you know once its up it is going to be hard to move.

We had a very windy day on our first time putting it up but managed to do it,have bought the frontier 6 porch to use as the kitchen area as wasnt happy with the wide open space at the front to try cooking in, in the rain and wind as we had seen others with an 8 trying to cook on hols earlier in the year and they had to drape a big tarp over the front to stop the wind getting in.

Very spacious and we mangaged to have our family of 5 in there with blow up settees and tv etc without problem bedrooms big enough to take our fold up bed and 2 sims for the kids to share in the other room.

Would definetly recommend this tent as it took a lot of rain over 2 days and not a single drop inside lots of ventilation points and three doors to choose from,would also reccomend buying a frontier porch to use as an extra cooking sitting area as this adds a lot more space to an already very spacious tent

We purchased this last year having accidentally damaging our previous tent which was the older model.

This is a great tent and the niggles with the older model seem to have been resolved. The steel frame is heavy but gives you some reassurance in the changeable British weather.

Since purchasing in June 2014 we have used it on numerous occasions both in the UK and France. We are a family of 4 and there is plenty of space inside if the weather isn't great.

Love, love, love this tent!

This is our 3rd year of camping, and we have previously borrowed a tent and then bought a cheaper one to get us started.

The Oasis 6 was everything we had on our list of requirements after camping for 2 years in other tents. It is large enough for our family of 5, it has lots of windows making it feel large and airy, it has plenty of fly screens allowing you to ventilate it without flies getting in, and the built in canopy is huge! (Meaning you can leave your cooking equipment outside without the worry of it all getting wet if it rains)

We used this tent for the first time over the May bank holiday (beginning of May 2015) and the weather was horrendous. Rain and very strong winds!) The strong steel poles and hydrostatic head of 6000 meant this tent more than held it's own in these conditions. It feels really good quality (much better than previous tents we've owned/used)

We can't wait to use this tent again and wouldn't think twice about recommending it to anyone!

This is our first tent so I'm not sure how qualified I am to review a tent but here goes.

We bought this tent because we were really impressed by how roomy it felt due to the big windows.

We also liked the fact it had the bedrooms at the end rather than one on each side.

The living area is very spacious even for our family of six and we didn't feel cramped at all.

As for putting it up and packing away its an absolute doddle especially after watching the GO video on you tube.

All in all very happy with our purchase.

We purchased the Oasis 6 a couple of weeks ago whilst it was in the Go Outdoors sale. Having never camped before I spent months looking for the perfect tent for my family. (2 adults, 2 kids, age 2 and 4). We took our tent for a test run BH Monday and booked to stay for two nights. The tent is incredible heavy. Over 40kg so make sure two people carry the bags. It was simply enough to pitch, we too watched the you tube video which helped massively and we got the tent fully set up inc contents in around 1hr 20mins. The tent is spacious and the bedroom area fitted a single air bed, a ready bed and two large camp beds with some room to spare. As you know the BH Monday that has just passed was one of the wettest on record and I'm pleased to say the tent remained water tight and didn't budge in the gusts that came at us!

The porch is handy to cook food in and to store items however the rain was coming sideways so items in the porch did get wet as did I when I was making a cuppa. The windows are large and crystal clear making the tent bright and airy, the netting was great in helping keep flies out, as mentioned in the previous review the outer zip doesn't go across the bottom but does have a big overlap, we didn't experience draughts but we didn't have full on wind either.

The tent took around 50mins to take down but I think this will get quicker the more we use it. I was unable to get the tent back into the tent bag, it's currently in my dining room. (We got back from camping yesterday) I will try again later today and fingers crossed we get it back in!

Overall all this is the perfect for us, easy to pitch, lots room and will still be roomy when the girls get older.

A final note would be is that this tent is big. It is stored in two bags. One for poles (so so heavy) and the other for the outer.

We have a Land Rover Discovery and these bags happily fill half the boot section so make sure your car can carry such a tent and you have somewhere at home to store it!

Very sturdy and good looking tent. Loads of space and light from all of the Windows. I find it easy to put up, even alone it is possible ( watch the Go Outdoors video on YouTube first) Love the porch which is ace for sitting out in. Loads of ventilation too. The only minus is that the doors don't zip along their bottoms which means when it is very blowy it can be draughty.Overall an amazing tent at a great price

Manufacturer's Description

The Hi Gear Oasis 6 is a very large multi-roomed tent with spacious removeable bedrooms, a massive living and storage area, large panoramic windows and easy access in or out from the large front door and hooded side entrance.

It's easily pitched if you have a helper, and the strong steel poles keep it stable and rigid even in stormy conditions.

Large panoramic windows throughout, with roll up curtains and mesh venting, let plenty of light in and give you a great view out, and they can be closed at night or in poor weather.

The versatile multiple bedrooms can be removed to give you extra living or storage space, making the Oasis 8 ideal as a base tent for an outdoor event as well as for your family holiday.

The large integral canopy (with removable groundsheet) provides the perfect place to shelter from sun or rain, with ample space for your bikes or camping furniture.

The very waterproof (6000HH) flysheet will keep heavy downpours out, while the large front door and 2 side doors provide easy access, with rain hoods to prevent any rain from finding its way inside.

And you can add extras to the Oasis 6 to make your camp even more secure and luxurious - the Oasis 6 Carpet adds warmth and comfort underfoot, the Oasis 6 Footprint adds insulation and protects the groundsheet, and the Oasis 6 Porch extends the sheltered space to give you an extra-huge dining/relaxation area.
