Hi Bob - I'm feeling reassured about the Mocha not being so see through after reading your post, thanks! I must go and look at that link now too.

Tinallkn4 - I don't know whether to laugh or "bleurgh" at your OH's description of the Avantgarde pattern, bet the designer thought he was being so "on trend" too - Olympic sperm17

Take it from me, if you follow the instruction video its really easy to pitch solo. Ive never had a problem (well once I did but thats another story!). Love the Mocha colour its really bright and with all the windows revealed its a fantastic tent to be inside during the day. Could I ask how much you picked it up for?

Mmmm...I think Yeomans and Outwell spell the colour 'Mocca' although Mocha seems to be the correct dictionary spelling...a dark coffee brown colour.

I have now tested the Carolina 3 but it was on a dull, overcast, miserable day so I couldn't tell if the sun shining through would create a 'shadow puppet' effect. I rather think not actually.

I also bought a small table lamp with a 40w bulb (well I am gradually becoming a glamper) or at least a low power bulb giving an equivelent light of a 40w bulb and looking at it from outside at night it didn't look much different to any other tent when lit up. However, I was camping alone and couldn't find anyone willing to stand inside the tent and jump up and down while waving their arms to see if I could see them.
