3 Reviews of the Esquina

Extremely stable. Used mine in 50mph+ gusts in windswept Norfolk while another tent similar to a Vango blade was anhialated. Shame Aztec don't do technical tents anymore.

A little small for 2 people but extremely comfortable for one. No condensation despite weather. Sprayway did a cheaper version of these in blue.

Mine is now 8yrs old and still going strong.

I've owned this tent for six years and found it to be highly reliable and easy to use. It's maintained its waterproofing completely in persistent heavy rain across Europe, from Sweden to Scotland and the Italian Alps. Nor does it suffer from condensation, as some smaller tents tend to first thing in the morning. Its low, broad profile means that it's untroubled even by very strong winds, and its three-pole construction means that it can be put up comfortably in under five minutes.

It is also very hardwearing. In six years the only repair I've needed to make has been one of the elastic peg loops which snapped (and which was my fault anyway!).

Although it's a two-man tent, I tend to use it for myself and my rucksack, and find that there is ample room inside. In terms of size and weight when packed, it is by no means the smallest/lightest tent on the market, but this inconvenience is more than offset by the extra space and the incredibly reliable waterproofing. Particularly when wild camping, it's usually more important to have guaranteed a warm, dry space at the end of the day, than to shave a kilo or two off your pack weight.

It is also excellent value for money. Possibly it has been discontinued, as Aztec seem to have stopped producing technical tents in favour of cheap festival ones (which is a great shame), but it can currently be purchased new on Ebay for 45, inclusive of postage.

I would strongly recommend this tent for anyone doing long-distance hiking. As far as I'm aware, there is nothing of this quality available on the market for such a low price.

A great light weight tent, very waterproof and superb in strong winds.

We bought this when we had our motorbike, and was attracted to the compact bag size and lightweight poles.

This is a great tent, very compact, but also roomy, I can take this tent anywhere and know I will be dry and warm.

With having a family we tend to use the larger tents which we own, this is still an old favourite and I know, I could take this tent out anywhere in any condition and still have a warm, dry, camping experience.
