This is our 3rd tent and is the best one we have had. We have just returned from camping and typical British weather - it rained, we had thunder and lightening and strong winds - it didn't leak, fall down and was really easy to put up, take down and store back in the bag. The 2 sleeping compartments were a good size and left a good living area in the middle of the tent.

An excellent buy!

We purchased our Horizon 6 after camping on the top of a Yorkshire Dale. We had found our current Coleman Trailblazer was neither big enough nor wind proof enough, so set out after one day to get a new one.

We came back with this, and had it up in next to no time not bad considering we were new to all this. To say it lived up to its water rating is an understatement. Mother nature really did have a go at moving it, and some local tents were badly damaged, but this stood up no probs. The additional porch canopy is a real must to stop water ingress when the door is open, and at 40 its well worth it. The tent is spacious and ideal for the 4 of us, and really can't see any need to change for the future. These are bargain price now, and can really say they are strong, easy to erect and put down even in the wind (just peg it first lol) and great quality. Would buy another one without a hint of doubt.

We just got back from our first trip away with our new tent. We are really pleased with it. We had a lot of rain overnight, but it dried out very quickly once the sun came out, and I'd like to agree with everything the others have said about this tent.

We used our tent for the first time last year 2008, we were lucky with the weather as it was very hot, but the tent kept us cool inside. Easy to pitch and easy to put away. Will be using it again this year in August. Listening to all the reviews means we have no worries at all, fantastic tent excellent space and even a pretty colour

Love this tent. Spent 3 days in the Lakes with it in very wet and windy (60mph gusts) conditions and it didn't let a drop of rain in. Poles flexed and tent buffeted, but never threatened to come down, unlike others on the site in different tents who vacated early. It was brilliant. First time we'd taken the tent out of the bag and only my 2nd time ever camping, but the tent was up and the kettle was on in just over an hour. Really easy to put up and take down. Good size and head height. Only two adults and a crazy spaniel as occupants, but absolutely loads of space. Could easily have had another couple of adults in there. Full size fitted ground sheet was great, but we also bought the Horizon 6 carpet and this certainly added a degree of 'luxury' and warmth so would recommend spending the extra 30 or so to get this.

We had our first outing with our horizon 6 at Easter. This tent is fab. As there is only the two of us we only needed to use one bedroom compartment so there was a huge amount of living and storage space which is great for us as we don't exactly travel light when we go camping.

Our first night was extremely wet and blustery but having also purchased the canopy we were able to sit out till late and not get wet or blown away. The tent really did stand up well in the strong winds and never once felt like it was going to blow away or buckle in any way unlike the outwell tent we had previously.

The only problem we had was getting the tent back in the bag at the end of the holiday. It took us over half an hour and numerous attempts to fold it right. I suppose this will get easier with practice. All in all A fantastic tent and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

We've just used this tent for the first time and were very impressed. We needed a tent with 2 bedrooms so that our son could have some privacy as well as ourselves. The tent went up really easily and withstood the battering it got from wind and rain in the middle of our holiday. It also dried out really quickly afterwards.

I also like the way you can open the windows part way so that you get light into the tent but it is still waterproof.

Hi - just a quick note - just bought one of these and used it last night - the camping trip was a disaster due to the site we stayed on but this tent was fantastic - genuinely simple to erect, spacious and well designed - completely pleased and will now be buying the porch extension.

Just camped in typical May BH weather and this tent survived the strong wind and rain! Great size for up to 6 people but we have 2 adults and 2 teenagers so very comfortable. Also liked the fact we were in separate sleeping areas not too near my snoring children! We purchased the porch and used it this weekend for first time- valuable addition as gave us extra 'outside' space which allowed us to cook in it ( out of the rain!) and keep all the kitchen stuff in.Also allowed us to store all the boots and shoes in, so keeping the main tent clean.

Also as mentioned by others previously, the only flaw we found when we first used the tent was the gaping seem at one end of the tent when the door is zipped shut.Allowed wind to blow around the pod at that end. As we never intend using this door I got some wide Velcro and stuck this shut, which was well and truly tested this w/e -howling gale, wind and rain - problem fixed! Overall great tent, loads space, storage pockets, EHU slots,easy pitching.Well worth all the researching I had done before getting it and would highly recommend for anyone wanting large family tent.

I've just returned from my first camping trip using my new tent and I absolutely LOVE it. I did quite a bit of research before buying it and found that without exception, the reviews for the Gelert Horizon 6 were very favourable, and now I know why.

The tent is very high-quality, well designed and extremely roomy. Our party was made up of 2 adults and 2 teenagers (both 15) and as such we had plenty of room and it would have certainly been more than adequately spacious had there been 6 of us. The living area seemed vast, and fitted a table, 4 chairs and still had space to freely move around.

I also purchased the footprint groundsheet and carpet, which made it very comfortable and cosy and made me feel somehow better about pitching my new tent knowing that it would be protected from stones etc. I got the whole package (tent, footprint and carpet) for 239.00 and think that it was money well spent as we will get many a lovely holiday for years to come from this purchase. Incidently, I bought the Mocha/Sandstone coloured one (new colour for 2010) and it looked gorgeous) : )
