Great little tent, this was and is my first tent, bought on special from gooutdoors, Harlow 59

Easy to put up, enough room for two adults and a little one, any more would be a squeeze. Bag ripped though after second time. Bedroom has sewn in ground sheet. First camp last week in late June and had no problems with tent. These tents are made by Gelert

Just been away for the weekend in this tent. Took longer than thought to actually pitch the tent, that was after the cord in the pole snapped and I had to make a temp knot and then feed it through 6 rods. Managed to get it up even though it was blowing a gale to find that in of the side hitches ripped. Then spent quite a bit of time going round doing the guylines. After this found that one of the eyes for the inner liner came apart. All in all it is not a bad tent and is very spacious for a small family.

Pitched this tent for the first time today and must say we were really impressed with it. We're complete novice campers but found it easy enough to pitch. The sleeping area is perfect for a small family and the porch/living area is a good size too. Enough room for a small table and a couple of chairs we reckon, but not much else. You can stand up in the porch and the bedroom although you do have to duck down quite bit to get through the bedroom door.

So for novices like us, it seems perfect. Will post another review when we actually camp with it!

Manufacturer's Description

With large living /storage and sleeping areas, the Atakama 5 is ideal for families having a long weekend away, or any groups of campers who may need space to store gear and spread around.

It is a double skin tent, with the outer pitched first to keep things simple, and a breathable inner to keep you comfortable.

The outer flysheet is 190T PU coated polyester with taped seams and a hydrostatic head of 3000, meaning it's rugged enough to handle scrapes and waterproof enough to take the heaviest downpours.

For warmer conditions, the breathable inner and large side and front doors will make sure the inside is ventilated enough so you and your kit are not overheating. The front door can be extended out as a canopy using the steel porch poles, offering shelter from sun or showers.

The porch/living area has a pre-attached groundsheet, making it easy for you to keep a clear, clean space for furniture, bikes etc., and keeping the bedroom area draught-free.

For extra stability, the tent has pre-attached double guylines, so it will easily withstand any strong gusts of wind. The guylines themselves are bright and reflective, to help you to find the tent in the dark, and to stop other campers from tripping over them if you're in a busy campsite.

Other useful features include slick pole sleeves to aid pitching, fire-retardant fabrics, and large windows to allow maximum light in if you need it.

A simple, yet versatile tent for easy group camping.
