We are a family of 4 and we love the tent! the inner sleeping area is giant but it dose not fit 10 it only fits 8 and the dinning area it is not small its medium. We bought it when it was 99 cheap for a big tent like that and that it is very waterproof.

Fantastic tent, great value for money, easy to erect-take, down. Took a right hammering with the wind and rain in Cornwall in 2007 came through with flying colours! Would not want to share it with another nine people though, just me and the wife!

We bought this tent at Argos on a half price sale and having decided to take up camping 4 days before the bank holiday. Our garden was too small to have a trial run so it only came out the box at the campsite. It is slightly daunting when you first unpack what seems like acres of tent, but the instructions were fairly clear, and all the poles are colour coded, and matched to corresponding coloured bands on the tent. We followed the instructions exactly, leaving the yellow poles until last. We did have to get the two children (aged 3 and 8) to hold the green poles in place until we got the guy ropes up to stabilise it. Having heard all sorts of horror stories about trying to put this up with 2 people, we were worried that we would struggle, especially as I have a broken wrist and am thus, one armed. However, we had the tent up and everything in a made up in under an hour (just) without any major problems.

There is plenty of space and we had the room divider in. I would not recommend trying to squash in 10 people unless you know each other REALLY well, but there was plenty of room for the 4 of us. The seating area was adequate and we had 4 chairs and a table in that space comfortably.

We had some wind and rain overnight, and then continuous rain the next day. There were no leaks or problems at all. We did have to pack it away wet, but even then it came down in about 1/2 hour and went back into the bag.

We would highly recommend this tent in these conditions and fully intend to get our moneys worth over the summer.

After reading the review by Surfspud I was a bit apprehensive, but as Argos had them for 89 I thought I'd give it a go.

I've never had a ring/dowel tent before as have previously used frame tents, but they take up too much room and are far too heavy!

After following the instructions (which aren't too bad) two of us put the tent up in an hour or so which I didn't think was too bad for a first attempt!

I know what Surfspud meant about the struggle putting the tent up once the poles have been inserted, but using a bit of common sense, and not following the instructions to the letter solved the problem. Don't put the yellow poles in until you have inserted the others in the dowels is the key :)

Taking the tent down was even less hassle, although it doesn't pack as small as when it first came (and I'd be surprised if it was!) it fitted in the case OK.

Although we haven't used it 'in anger' yet as value for money goes you would go a long way to beat this tent :)

The tent was half price in Argos , so I couldn't say no .

The opportunity to go camping for 1 night appeared , so I grabbed the wife and kids and we headed off .

We'd erected it only once at home in the garden to make sure it was all there , which it was . Instructions are ok , nothing major to worry about .

It IS a large tent , so you do need a large area to erect .

There's only four of us , but from camping experience years ago , I stick to my belief that if it says it's a 4 man , it's a comfortable 2 man , and if it says it's a 10 man , it's a comfortable 5 man .

There was plenty of room for all four of us , and enough for one more person I'd say as well , any more then that and it's gonna feel a little claustrophobic , ok if you're 8 teenagers at a rock festival , but not at my age now

Took about 45 mins to erect , didn't know about the yellow poles-last rule , which may have sped things up had I known . Loads of room as I said , and good sized side pockets to hold magazines etc. Great headroom too . It's a good tent !

We're now actually going to sell it and try and get a camper .

Fantastic tent , but I was a bit knackered puting it up and then taking it down , and we were lucky with the weather ,,, taking tents down in the rain doesn't appeal to me , and after erecting it , I realised I was getting older and it had been about 15 years since my last tent-adventure and maybe it's time to go for a camper , just turn the key and go ,, but we'll still bring the old 4 man tent from 15 years ago for the kids to play in beside it .

For the money , you can't go wrong !

I recently purchased this tent and found it to be very easy indeed to erect. This is my very first tent I am a camping virgin so to speak. I took eusty`s advice and fitted the yellow poles last, well actually the tent was upright and partially staked out.

This is the way my wife and I erected the tent.

Laid out the outer,

Pushed through colour coded poles into fabric,(not the yellow one`s)

I pulled up front section while my wife staked out the guide ropes.

We carried on like this till we reached the last section and made the appropriate adjustments to the skin.

At this stage the outer tent was erect and in position a piece of cake.

We then fed the yellow poles through their sleeves and that was that.

Then we staked out the tent fully,took about 10 min`s.

The inner tent was simplicity itself clips at the base and toggles up the side`s and ceiling. Took about ten mins again.

The whole thing took no more than 40-50 mins to put up (no strong wind)and like I said this is our first time

In my opinion this tent is value for money I paid 99 pound for it in the argos sale.

What I would recommend is you leave the poles out of the main carry bag so it weighs less.

The tent rolled up easily and went back in the bag with the inner tent and ground sheet,there was room for the poles but I left them out by choice.

Thanks for the advice on the yellow poles eusty, great tip that. I would recommend this tent to anybody I was pleasantly surprised. The ring dowel is super to.

I got one of these last year when Argos had it in the sale at 99.99 and I set it up in the garden, I had the room. I found the tent easy to set up with loads of room to stand up in, I'm over 6ft in height. I would recommend this tent for families, but 1 problem I had with mine is that the living area at the front of the tent is a little too small and it would have been better if the ground sheet had been sewn in. I would have to agree that 2 people defo need to put this up. I had mine out in rain and wind, my friends caravan awning fell down twice during one night and I thought that the tent would collapse, but it withstood gale force winds, so hats off to Argos. I did order the plastic heavy duty pegs from ebay and they did help with the anchoring to the ground.

We bought this last year on offer at 99.99 and have used it 6 times, including last week when we experienced a lot of rain and high winds in the Yorkshire Dales! We managed to stay dry but we had to pull in the front groundsheet as water was collecting a little by the front door area. Other than that the tent held up very well (we had only experienced good weather on our previous trips!). We are a family of 2 adults and two children (3 & 8 years) and there is plenty of space, a big advantage is that you can stand right up in the whole of the tent. We have our cooker set up on a stand in the front porch area and there is just enough room for the 4 of us to sit and eat inside as we had to last week. It would be very cramped with 4 adults in the porch though! We will certainly be using for a few years yet.

I would follow the previous advice and not insert the yellow poles until you have the rest locked in place. It can be a bit tricky to erect and take down in high winds though!

My mum brought my sister and I this tent when it was half price in Argos. We wanted to take our children camping but found lugging around 3 smaller tents was a pain.

We found this tent relatively easy to put up, it took us about 50 minutes to put up (2 adults and 4 children. Helping !) but after doing it a few times we can now do it in about 20 mins.

It didn't leak and has done us proud over the last year, we take 8 people when we camp, 3 adults and 5 children (aged 5 - 13) and found it was big enough. One good tip though, its easier to put 2 children onto one double airbed - the 10 people could fit in it but you would need to be laying on sleeping mats NOT airbeds.

The porch area is not huge, but is ample enough to put a camp stove and we were more than happy with it.

I know its not a 'fancy' tent but it ticks all the right boxes and I can't complain especially for the price. I wouldn't be put off buying another pro-action.

I bought this tent second hand and it had only been used once, size - perfect for a small family - we are a family of 4 (Two little ones, the tent is perfect for this size of group. It stood up well in heavy rain - no wind. But does suffer from condensation badly in the front porch - which is a real pain!, with practise you can get it together in 20 mins after a bit of practise. The tent fabric is good but I really don't know it will last more than to years - poles are good and strong but 2 elastics snapped (easily replaced), groundsheet strong and good - zips good with no issues. The best bit is being able to stand up inside fully! godsend !
