What a rip-off, they said there was a competition to win the tent but I can't find the weight of the tent anywhere in their information blurch which is the question they are asking (if it's there then it's well hidden). I won't be buying this tent - I will stick with my Coleman touring tent which take only 10 mins to put up

I dont see where it's a rip off - the entry is FREE, thats it - AT NO COST. FREE ENTRY.    If you cant be bothered to look elsewhere on the internet - or just keep guessing til you get it right - for the answer then that's your problem.    

You seem, however, to have the time and effort to come on here and moan about it, or is it just to go on about how great you think your Coleman is?

Me Mum always said, if you can't say anything nice, then be quiet.

Hiya,

I am sorry to hear that you are struggling to find the information on the OLPRO page, it is very clear on their site and is in the Dimensions and Details page.

And certainly not a rip off, I won one of these at Christmas, free entry, and arrived a couple of days after winning.

I just copied the name of the tent in to search and found the answer in 0.38 seconds. We have slow internet here.

Haha, you didn't expect a competition to involve even minimal work on your behalf? How can a free entry be a rip-off?
Really good HH on this tent and lots of features. Perfect small tent, so fingers crossed for me

I like the colour of it - it's cheerful.

I'm in the office today and tried the answer and got it even quicker - 0.12 seconds

Can anyone beat that? :-)

Another one here, who found the answer in seconds.

This has to be the best competition ever! Simple question. Easy to find answer, as they pretty much lead you to it. A fantastic prize. And all for free!

It's as if they just can't wait to give it away!

...In fact, what's the opposite of "Rip Off", because that is precisely what this is!

I just hope there aren't many as clever as me, otherwise there will be loads of entries. Millions probably, what with it being so simple to find the answer!

Don't you just hate it when someone posts that immediately after one of your own posts, but without quoting the post it is aimed at!   

This must be the 50th time (at least!) someone has posted something like that after one of my posts! I'm beginning to get a bit concerned!
