Well this is our 1st tent and went on our first trip to Scotland, 8 nights in all, me, the wife and our 3 boys aged 3, 5 and 9. 1st 2 nights the tent did it`s job as we got battered by the heaviest rain in ayrshire that year and were rewarded with 6 great ones after. The tent gave us no problems putting up, 3 readybeds fitted snuggly in 1 compartment and in hindsight wish we had used the other instead of using it for storage cause the draught coming from the doors wasn't nice. Would recommend this tent for families and have already told my sister who is in the process of buying the same tent. The compartments, once closed up are great and plenty of room to move in the living area.

This is our 3rd tent, we've used it three x now. It has a spacious living area with plenty of light. Considering the size, it is fairly quick n easy to put up. The ground sheet provided isn't full size, so we use two.

The sleeping ends would be cramped with three people but good and roomy for two. Lots of useful bits, two large tent tidies, lots of cable holes and lamp hangers. No leaks discovered yet! but we haven't used it in extreme weather. This a fairly versatile tent, with door and porch options, and lots of vents. We're impressed with it

We paid 120 for ours in a sale, great bargain!

This is our first tent and we pitched it for our first holiday without a practice. The instructions were a bit vague for us novices but all in all it was pretty easy and not as unweildy as we thought it might be. It withstood 30 mph winds, didn't budge at all and didn't leak. The living area is very roomy yet cosy with plenty of room to walk about. The bedrooms, although supposed to be big enough for 3, would probably be a bit cramped. The bedroom fits a double airbed with room down either side comfortably, another single would leave no room at all. We only used one bedroom but if using both, the bedroom at the door end may be a bit chillier because we couldn't quite get it to seal up well enough to stop the draught.

There are three door/porch options which is handy, but we find the door openings a bit awkward and would prefer them in a 'D' rather than two zips. We also find it a bit draughty around the bottom of the doors (although this may just be us in our 'noviceness'! In hot weather though, this may be a plus.

Storage is good and there are two 'tidys' with eight pockets each. There is plenty of cable holes and things to hang the lights on along the top of the tent. There are two nice big windows in the living area, good vents and we had very little condensation (despite three dogs and both of us!)

All in all, we think this tent was a real bargain (159), very useable, comfortable and fairly easy to pitch (even for novices).
