2 Reviews of the Tarn

By: Maniloads  Reason: I own(ed) one  Made in: 2001   Rating: 

A budget three pole geodesic dome tent with fibreglass poles, the Aztec Tarn would not be the first choice for the serious backpacker. The poles mean it's heavy for it's size, but as a cheap tent for a biker like me, it has more than repaid my very modest investment over the years. Had minor issues with condensation, but easily solved with a little 'rigging'.

This is an old model, and you are unlikely to come across one anywhere, but my reason for reviewing it is so I can share my appreciation for Aztec as a company.

I needed to replace the damaged flysheet, which was not their fault. They sent me a replacement, by courier, next day delivery, and never charged me a penny! Fantastic customer service! I had many years service from that tent, and it was with regret I disposed of it.

I currently own about a dozen tents, including some quite expensive tech tents (can't part with Saunders), but it's the budget tents I remember with fondness, and use the most. My fave at the mo is a seven year old Highlander 2 with a gelert canopy. Great combo!

This is a fairly light tent with plenty of space for one person but extremely cramped for two. Its also quite short and would not suit anyone over about 5` 10' since the bottom end is quite shallow.

Easy to put up, taking just 5 minutes with practice, this is an inner first tent. Not so good in rain but gives a good taut inner with a well fitted fly.

I recently took this to Scotland and it coped well with moderate rain and wind. However the fibreglass poles have not been tested in strong wind / rain although I think it would cope reasonably well in this country for 1 to 2 seasons but not more.

Overall a competent tent without being suited to extreme conditions.
