I wanted a tent I could pitch by myself inside 15 mins, so the test pitch has easily proved that.

It was a bit harder getting it back in the bag, but again, familiarity will help.

Canít wait to camp in it.

I tried and could not put my Bedouin 340 back into the bag that it came in.

So I went to Bags4Everything and had one made big enough for the pack size that I managed to achieve! It was money well spent.

The original bag was used for storing either the poles or wings/vario awning etc...

Spent Jubilee Weekend in my new tent, visiting friends in Kent and having a great time. Very happy with the tent, the extra space over my Eldorado, the fully sewin in groundsheet and quick pitching. I spend very little time actually in my tent, but did have to make coffee inside on a windy rainy morning, plenty of space.

I sort of missed the cosiness of the inner tent in the Eldorado - but enjoyed the shape and tautness of the Bedouin.
