2 Reviews of the Borneo 4

I bought this tent as a job lot of tents and camping equipment for £20 so I feel I had a bargain. I love this tent for when I camp alone with my two dogs as it's light to carry on my trolley and it's incredibly easy to pitch up on my own. Adore it! I have several tents including Vango and Outwell but this is by far my favourite one!

Bought this in the late 1990s, for about £60 or £65 some camp shop doing a deal on it.
Its perfect for me and the dog, just standing height in the high point of the dome (I'm 5'3'). They did larger Borneos for taller/more people. It comprises a roomy dome constructed out of the two longer poles and an extended porch made from the third pole. The inner (made from good quality cotton or cotton/polyester) has a full mesh door and a cotton privacy door so you can use one or the other, or both. The porch has two doors, the main front door can be used as a canopy.
Doubt it would sleep 4 full grown adults, as with most tents would comfortably sleep one or two less than as described.
Great colour - deep navy blue with scarlet trim.
Very easy to pitch and strike, although inner first so have to be quick if its raining. The pole sleeves are very sturdy and roomy, the dome part has mesh sleeves and the poles run very easily through them.
The dome bedroom pod has a sewn in groundsheet but the porch - well you either just have the grass or you can use the small detachable groundsheet. The flysheet throws over the top of the dome and when pegged out there is a roomy gap of 2' or so all round the bottom edge which is probably the reason why I've never gassed myself with my copious use of heaters and cooking stoves over the years.
There is a mesh panel in the back wall with a little hood you can pull out to vent the tent.
The porch has two windows. The plastic is different to modern plastic windows, much softer and more flexible.
My particular tent is extremely well made out of quality materials. At the age of 14 the poles need re-stringing for the first time, and I'll re-proof the flysheet this spring which will be the third time I've done this in the 14 years since I bought it. The stitching is as good as it was the day I bought it, no loose threads anywhere.
HH is 2000 but I've never suffered any leaking. This delightfully uncomplicated little tent has stood up to strong winds on Devon's coasts and Peak District thunderstorms and hammering rain that deafened out the radio.
The fibreglass poles feel different to modern fibreglass poles, colder to the touch and much harder, more like Bakelite.
If you find one, let me know, if I could have another in the loft for when mine finally does give out I'll be happy in the knowledge I've got the tents sorted for my lifetime.
