9 Reviews of the Atlantis 3

Update at the weekend at Silverstone classic the heavens opened with heavy rain . Got back to the tent to find water coming in through the seams and toggles in the porch area. At lest 1 inch of water in there. Managed to use some micro fibre cloths to get rid of the water and dry it out. Then the rain started again and it started to come in again used teteris tape and hope for the best but to no avail. Was using like a old tv soap opera show. Cups and bowls trying to collect the water where it dripped. Kept ringing out the cloths as water gathered around the porch. Finally it stopped. Went to sleep as the bedroom area was dry.

Next day use seam sealant on the inside and outside and hope it would dry before the rain came back. It had dried when the rain came again but it had not worked. So today I've took it back to toysrus and they swapped it for a new one. Fingers crossed this one don't leak as I be at snetterton in Norfolk for the British touring cars championship. I let you know how we get on with the new tent.

Great 3 man tent. The porch was miles bigger than expected. It really is a two man tent but brilliant for one man. Took me 20 mins to put up first time mostly that was due to undoing the guyropes. 2nd time about 15min to do it as you just peg the back two corners out and put the poles in. The yellow one at the back and the two others afterwards. Then pull it forward and peg the rest out after closing the doors. As the groundsheet is fully sewn in and also its all pitch in one save loads of time of messing around putting normally inner tents and groundsheet in. Can stand up in it as I m only 5ft 7 ish.Lol grill tent as I only paid £34.99 from toys r us with a £5off voucher and free delivery.

Space in the porch means you can have a double burner cooker and bottle one side of the tent with both doors open and still more room to put a backpacking table near it and has a elec hookup zip as well. Did us this at good wood festival of speed last weekend.

Recently purchased for just £39.99. Used once and think it was wonderful. No drafts and I was warm through the night but it was July! Tent has large porch/living space for chilling out and bedroom suitable for 3 smallish people. Great buy and perfect for quick weekends away when my family tent (Hood 4) would be too cumbersome. I can put this tent up by myself. My son is going to use as his fishing tent (he thinks)!

I wanted a tent that I could put up by myself but still have room to stand in so I chose this one. It fit all my criteria brilliantly: it's spacious without being excessively large, I *can* just about stand up inside and there's room for a table and chairs in the living area. The main (front) door can be used with king poles to create an awning and having a choice of doors makes it very versatile. All in all, a great tent!

My previous tent was a dome tent with a very small porch area for storing boots and small bags, perfect for festivals but not for a more luxurious camping experience. I chose this tent as it has amazing reviews and I wasnít disappointed at all.

The pitching time was 10 mins max despite it being our first time, it was all really obvious. We went away for 3 nights and it never stopped raining so the fully sewn-in ground sheet was a godsend. The size is perfect for the two of us, in fact we thought it was a little excessive, it is a 3-man that could actually fit three normal sized people in it comfortably.

The only down-side is that one morning after a lot of rain there was a couple of pools of water that made it in. Iím still unsure whether this was due to a leaking seam or whether it was just condensation. Two warm people in a fully-sealed plastic bag on a cold night, itís hardly surprising. Anyway, the next night we left the window open at the back and it was all good although the rain wasnít as hard so as I say, Iím still unsure. I may apply some seam sealant that came with it just in case.

All in all, a very good tent.

Overall a very good tent. Only used it once so far and stood up well to strong winds and rain. Once poles are threaded through sleeves tent is up in a jiffy. But is quiet difficult to thread poles, this takes over 10 mins. But whole tent is up in 20 min flat. Ample room for 2 adults feels quite roomy. Overall very happy with my purchase. Sewn in ground sheet is brill.

We went out for a trip in the worst possible weather.

It stood up to the elements as we sipped our wine and watched others struggle, just a bit!

Quick and easy to get set up. Took us less than twenty minutes. We didn't hang about as it was pelting down.

Once settled we were warm and dry. This little tent provides great bedroom and living space for two.

Packing away was just as easy. Couldn't help but laugh as the sun came out to play for our return journey home.

This is probably the best tent I've ever owned. It is perfect for two people (especially if they're around the 5 foot tall mark!) and is spacious enough to get a table, two chairs and our porta-loo in the porch bit.

It fits into a bag smaller than the average holdall, and is very light. It's an all in one pitch which makes it easy to put up. Just watch it if it's windy, though, because it's a bit like a sail once you've put the poles in and it has a tendency to take off. It was also very easy to take down and fold up (it's basically a rectangle - no daft bits poking out anywhere). My 14 year old daughter and I can handle it with ease. It didn't rain whilst we were away, so can't comment on the water proofing. However, I will say that the nights were still damp when we went away and it was not as prone to condensation as some tents I've slept in - just a bit around the windows.

All in all, a very good buy.

I was fed up with crawling in and out of my original small tent and decided to purchase a tent that I could almost stand up in. It had to be fairly compact as I use a motorbike as transport therefore I have limited space.

I also wanted the tent to have a good sized living area to enable me to sit inside just in case the weather took a turn for the worse.

The Atlantis 3 was purchased August last year and used for the first time in September.

The Atlantis has fulfilled all my requirements; quality manufacture, easy to erect and ample space. I would certainly recommend this tent.
