We bought this tent to replace our weekend tent, a Vango Icarus 500 and our main holiday tent, a Gelert Tahoma6+. Rather than have 2 tents filling the shed we were looking for 1 tent for both jobs, something you can put up quick on the Friday night get away after work but roomy enough for a week or longer camping. This tent fits the bill perfectly, lighter than the Gelert but as quick to erect as the Icarus, 15-20 minutes from unzipping the bag to start pegging out. It feels like there is more 'lounge' space than the Gelert, the Icarus carpet has a good foot of space between each edge and the tent wall.

We haven't tried putting up the porch yet as we've only used it for weekends so far but it looks straight forward so long as there are two of you.

This is a fabulous spacious tent which is easy to erect. We put it up in 30 minutes first time in highish winds. It's very roomy and the bedrooms fit 2 adults each easily. The built in ground sheet for the living area is fantastic. My one minor critism is that the divider between the bedroom of the bigger pod has too much of a gap. I wonder if the designer could consider a zip type attachment rather than the current design. But a brilliant tent.

Borrowed my friend old Blue Voyager 6 one 2 years ago for my first camping trip with the family. We absolutely loved it, it was huge for the 4 of us. The wife and kids where hooked into camping after this.

Come last year I came into some money and decided to go and buy one for ourselves. We got ourselves the Emerald Grey Elite 6 and have been a few places now and have had no troubles. Not leaked on us yet and we have had a few terrible nights with the rain.

Would be 10 out of 10 but we are looking at the porch and it is expensive and we now cannot get the Emerald Grey porch from Go Outdoors as the design has changed.

All in all would highly recommend this tent but maybe not for a party of 6 (I was always brought up being told to go bigger anyway). Massive living space and 3 rooms 1 for me and the wife and one each for the kids.

An excellent easy to erect 6 berth tent. My own tent is an Outwell Delaware 7, but as we were only popping away for a few days I took my sons Voyager 6 as to be honest the Outwell is huge.

Never put the Voyager up before and had it up in about 20 mins. Took about another 20 mins to peg it down and get our gear safely stashed. Only hick-up was I got the poles onto wrong pegs first time. A quick look at the picture on the bag revealed the problem and was quickly sorted. Very very impressed with the interior space. Big enough for a family of mom, dad and couple of kids.

I was so impressed with it I brought one when I got home.Go-Outdoors 249, ordered Wednesday night delivered Friday lunch time. Result.

I would recommend this tent to anyone

A large tent with plenty of light and space, it is excellent to pitch and we are novices (10 years since we last camped) we had the tent up in 30 mins first go. Whilst away there was high winds and gusts of over 40 mph and the tent stood up to it very well.

Not sure I would want 6 in the tent but I do like space - would recommend the carpet as that was a definite benefit and helped keep it warmer.

We have owned this tent since 2011. Previously we owned a Vango and struggled to pitch the metal poles with just two adults. The voyager 6 Elite has made lightwork of pitching without the compromise on space. We have holidayed for two weeks in this tent, through all elements and it has never let us down. I can highly recommend this tent, it fits our family of 4 in very comfortably. The porch almost doubles the tent space, and makes cooking easier in the wetter weather.

I have been camping with this tent twice now and it has been great. The bedrooms are a good size. I love the little fly mesh tops to the doors so l can see if the children are still asleep without disturbing them. The tent is easy to put up and l can do it with my six year old daughter holding the pole in one end while l put the other end into the pin. The colour coded poles are great however the very bottom bits with the pins are not colour coded so l sometimes need to switch a few over at the end. I think l may need to stitch some coloured thread onto the fabric at the pin ends so l don't get muddled up in future. The living space is a fantastic size and very light with all the Windows. I love the carpet it is so soft under foot.

This is our third year of using our Voyager 6 and guys its the blue one not the new model in green. We love our Voyager and so do most people who come inside to view it. Like a few people we bought ours in a sale approx 169 ish. We went to buy an Outwell at Go Outdoors and it was throwing it down and the tent we were going to buy was flooded and was 395. We only went in to the Voyager to take shelter out of the rain. Once inside we were stunned at the size of it. Like other reviews we could stand up inside it and there was plenty of room and no wet puddles inside which impressed us both.

We have just come back from our 3rd trip in France and guys once treated with Nikwax before putting away this tent will give us another 3 years of safe camping. It is so reliable it just does not let you down. We love it. We have always used a porch with it which we bought on line for 65 from Argos in their sale. So look around if you need a porch as I thought Hi Gear was just for Go Outdoors.

My daughter has just bought the Voyager Elite after borrowing our tent so that speaks volumes for the model. Would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a good value and reliable tent.

We originally bought this tent in 2011 due to a very good deal on price at Go Outdoors.

We had been looking for something with lots of space for group camping trips and this was exactly what we had been searching for.

Unfortunately there was a problem with our tent leaking which we did not discover until after the 1 year warranty period was over. After a bit of back and forth with Go Outdoors we amicably & fully resolved this issue and now had a new Voyger 6 Elite which we are very happy with. Fully watertight and everything!

Plus Points:

LOTS of space and height.

Can be pitched by 2 people but 3 or 4 is easier. (might be difficult with 2 people if it's windy!)

The secret to pitching is to get one person inside pushing up the poles from middle.


In rain the sloped front door drips inside when you open it. We now take a small picnic rug away with us to compensate for this. If you have the space & money I think you can get a porch addition for this tent which would help this.

The original came with 2 poles to make the front door into an porch. The new one didn't. However I bought some more poles for 7 or 8 quid from GoOutdoors and that solved that minor quibble.

In Conclusion:

Massive tent, Good Price.

OMG I love this tent. I am new to camping but got the bug after my first time. I went to an 80's festival last year and took a small 4 berth dome tent, this did the job but me and my husband got tent envy looking at everyones bigger/flasher units. Noticed this one on sale in Go Outdoors and after reading positive reviews purchased it. I cannot get over how amazing this tent is. It's soooooo spacious you could have a party in it. It's easy to put up by two people although I know I probably couldnt do it, I'm too short. It's coped in heavy rain and a bit of wind. I purchased the carpet (husband rolled his eyes, but agreed it was definitely worth it) I purchased extra poles to make the doors into porches too. I have a purchased a foot print, but from a well known selling site as I thought the Hi Gear ones were pricey. The tent has been pitched three times so far, each time we have managed to get in back into the bag, so that's a result! On its last erection the elastic snapped in the main pole, my husband initially panicked but together we managed to re-create the pole and all was fine. We will be purchasing spare elastic for our next trip, just in case. As I said, I love this tent to bits and hope it will serve us a good few years. If you are thinking of buying one, I can recommend whole heartedly.

Manufacturer's Description

A strong, stable and spacious 6-person tent with large windows and generous headroom.

Built using a strong semi-geodesic structure, the Hi Gear Voyager Elite 6 is an easily-pitched tent with room to accomodate 6 campers and all their gear.

It has a large, full-standing-height bedroom area, which can be adapted to convert some of the space into storage quarters if needed.

The groundsheet is sewn in, meaning you get no unwanted draughts, moisture or bugs getting in. Multiple windows (and mesh panels) let you control how much sunlight gets in, and maintain your privacy. The large front door and additional side door give you easy access for you and your gear, and also let you control ventilation.

It's stable enought to stand up to very windy conditions, with the cross-pole design giving it extra strength and flexibility.

A versatile tent that's great for families, groups of friends or festival-goers - and don't forget, you can add extra comfort and insulation by choosing the Hi Gear Voyager Elite Carpet, and extend your sheltered space by adding on the Hi Gear Voyager Elite 6 Porch.
