This is a fantastic tent, in fact we loved it so much two sets of friends bought one too !

It is so easy to pitch there are only five poles to the main tent.

The front porch area is large enough to hold all the kitchen equipment and still leave enough room to seat five of us!

The geodesic design means it can stand up to some really rough weather and high winds - believe me we have tested it !

It has never leaked even in the heaviest of rain!

The sewn in ground sheet keeps out the drafts.

We love this tent it's design makes for excellent family holidays.

There are three bedroom pods - two of which can be divided in half.

I couldn't recommend this tent more highly, we have had some great holidays in it.

Even though we now have a caravan we are keeping the tent as we figured our children might want to use it as they get older.

We bought this tent two years ago as we needed a new tent and wanted a large one - this is a good size tent with a large living area, all fully sewn in - which makes a great difference. We have used it in good and bad weather - holding up very well to very strong winds! highly recommend this tent for a family. We normally go with 2 adults, 2 kids, 1 dog. EXCELLENT tent well worth the money.

With 2 adults, 3 teenagers, 2 juniors and 2 dogs we needed a large, reliable tent. This one fits the bill to a 'T'. We camped in June 2007 in all that rain for a fortnight. This is a high tent but while gales blew other, smaller tents down this one withstood the test and even though there were times I thought the whole thing would cave in on us(the poles are very pliable)it just bounced back into shape and kept us as dry as old bones. The porch area is very large and sheltered and is an excellent place for emergency cooking, leaving wet boots, drying wet clothes etc. Easy peasy to erect with colour coded poles etc.(we did it in torrential rain and wind)although it did threaten to carry off my 10 year old like a sail at one time! We love our tent, plenty of space, lots of pockets for storage, good ventilation and a fully sewn in ground sheet to beat the bugs!

We bought this tent last year, our first tent as a family. When we first got it we thought it was huge, that was until we went camping for the first time. Yes it is big but not the biggest. I would say it is nothard to put up, just takes a while. We manage it together, me and the hubby. The kids watch! We've camped in the blazing sunshine and it wass rather warm inside, and we've camped in the horrendous rain, and thunder storm, and we stayed dry.

Our only critiscm is that you have to bend over in the bedrooms. But that isn't a real problem.

My husband reckons there are far too many guy ropes, that's cause he has to do them on his own.

But a fab tent, we've been looking this year for another one and can't find one to better it.
