4 Reviews of the Halo 300

By: JFDI  Reason: I own(ed) one  Made in: 2009   Rating:   Date: 17/03/2014

I bought this tent just because it is compact enough to fit in my motorcycle panniers whilst giving enough room to sit comfortably, and for bed and gear.

But over the 5 years I've been using it I've found this tent to be fantastic in every respect.

The inner can be attached for all in one pitching, all 3 poles are the same and the channels are continuous, so it takes just 10 minutes to get set up. It's so sturdy that guys seldom need to be used, and when the weather is so bad that tents are falling around you, this one won't.

As for sleeping space, it's a 3 man tent and really does sleep 3, thankfully, as this weekend was a real tester and a couple I was with now have a Khyam Pancake, and shared the trusty Halo.

Chose this tent as it is fairly lightweight, easy to pitch and allows plenty of space in the two porches for all the cycling gear we carry as we tour.

The tent is robust enough to withstand even the wettest of Scottish summers and stayed put in some pretty strong Highland winds.

It is spacious inside and vents ensure that condensation is limited.

The colour also allows it to blend in with surroundings, perfect for some wild camping out in the fields and woods.

Bought this tent last year as we wanted something really light to carry on the motorbikes. There is plenty of room for two people and all our gear and with two doors we don't have to stumble over each other to get in and out. It is incredibly quick and easy to put up and has already withstood some pretty horrendous weather. Tents around us were blowing away but this felt safe and solid. My only niggle is that the bit of groundsheet in the storage area just hooks in and on a couple of occasions in heavy rain it has pooled water on it.

I bought one of these recently and must say it does as it says. It's so easy to put up. Another good thing is it doesn't get damp inside. The 2 storage areas are ample size for cooker, boots etc. It's very sturdy although we haven't tried it out yet in bad weather it did withstand heavy rain without a drop coming inside. The colour blends in well with the countryside and as we like to camp in quieter fields this is a bonus. This tent being so easy to erect has made us get out more. 10 minutes and it's up and you can get on with sorting the rest of your kit! All in all I'd highly recommend this tent.

Manufacturer's Description

Take three poles of the same length, add a flysheet and breathable fabric inner tent and within minutes you will have pitched a Halo. The innovative porch configuration gives both a dry area to store gear on the groundsheet, with an open section perfect for a stove or to leave muddy boots in. Straightforward pitching and the ability to split the load with friends will make this tent a firm favourite with youth groups, DofE adventurers and outdoor enthusiasts.
