Having taken a break from camping for a while, I haven't been on this forum for a while, but intend to do some wild camping again this year so I'm back!

I do have a backpacking tent (Vango Spectre) but it's bright blue so I shall probably get a new tent, which would be better for stealth camping.

Naturehike seems to make some good tents which all get regular positive reviews on the likes of YouTube, but there isn't a single Naturehike tested on this site .. just wondering why

No one's bought one yet here.
Vango make their better hike tents in green.
The Spectre is/was available in green or light blue, you originally chose the wrong one.
Looking at Nature Hike tents on Ebay doesn't make me want to rush out and buy one.

Love my naturehike mongar 2. There are naturehike reviews on the site but they don't show in the search box.

Most "reviews" are of large family bungalows, and are seldom anything akin to a review; more a case of, "I have of of these and its great".
It would be great to see some more detailed and critical reviews of smaller or less common tents. If you have/use one, let's see it!!

For reviews not shown in the search box, scan down to "Others" and then click "all"......................
there is indeed a review of the Naturehike Star 2 there...

I have a Naturehike Tagar, bought it to save a kg on biketouring equipment and slept in it one night to test it out - then ze pandemic came along...
I suspect ze Naturehike tents are not reviewed here because this is ze wrong target group. If I would review mine, I would do it rather on a bike travel or outdoor forum.
But if I would review my 60kg Dutch canvas tent - I would do it here for sure!

I've reviewed my tent a Vango Pulsar 300 because it is an exceptional and innovative tent.
I haven't reviewed my Go Outdoors Gazebo because the poles are over complicated and too heavy for the flimsy plastic connectors, especially the 4 way connector in the center of the roof that broke when the whole thing blew over in a Dorset breeze as I tried to put it up for the first time. I've replaced the broken connector but have never felt inclined to use the gazebo again.
Even if a tent stands up in a storm and keeps out the rain if it doesn't feel special and become "my" tent I'm not going to review it. A tent should stand up in a storm and keep out the rain, I want more!
