I finally cracked. Lugging the Wolf Lake (which I loved) outer bag, inner bag, pole bag, carpet etc etc has done for me. Iíve sold it.

I want something similar but probably smaller in air tent form. Iíve done the decent thing and spent a week looking on here expecting to find all my answers and therefore avoid starting a new topic of my own but no. I found surprisingly little in the way of conclusive advice.

So. Air tents. Hit me with it guys.

Am I mad? Is it a fad? I love the Outwell brand but before that we were Vango fans however Iím very open minded.

Should we go air? If so which? (2 adults 2 kids so ideally 5+ man).

Cheers in advance.

Should you go for air? Yes yes yes.

We switched from a large pole tent with separate bags for outer, inners and poles. We switched to air tents in 2017 so have done 3 camping seasons now, it is far less faff. Yes the bag is massive, but you blow it up and the inners are already in there, itís so easy.

We had three Outwell Vermont 7SA, all went back as faulty, one air tube problem where it was never sealed from the factory and two other tents that leaked water quite a lot. It as a shame as I loved the tent but wouldnít but an a Outwell again. Weíve had a Kampa Studland polycotton for the last year and it is fantastic. Buying at this time of year you will get a nice discount of 15-20% if you look around for this years stock.

Good to hear thanks. After a morning of internet bashing weíre leaning towards Vango. We havenít even considered Kampa. I think we should do that next and then make a decision.

I was very very close to buying a Vango polycotton but settled on Kampa as I could get more for the same money. Vango do some great tents.

A quick look at the Kampa range seems to put them at about the same price range as Vango.

Vango Keswick 600DLX is the current fave. Has anyone got/had one and got any opinions?
