5 Reviews of the Cinch 4 Man Pop Up

By: Evabels  Reason: I own(ed) one  Made in: 2017   Rating: 

Received one of the new ones this Summer and very pleased with it. Once you get the hang of it it really is quick to pack away. It withstood gale force winds and torrential rain extremely well! A few little niggles with accessories but they're being sorted out shortly.

I wanted something I could put up on my own for a couple of nights and it's perfect.

It's a shame that this tent could have 8 stars if it was well made, but it isn't. The first tent I received had its main doorway zip sealed shut by a messy over application of sealant. You'd think this would have been checked at the factory. There was a large tear in the ground sheet that had been repaired, and several of the guy ropes were severely frayed. When I put the tent back into the bag (with an enormous amount of swearing and injury to my back) the bag tore. It's far too tight a fit. Cinch's attitude was that I was making a fuss - I could easily use a knife to cut open the zip, and there are spare guys. They didn't acknowledge the tear on the groundsheet. I said errr no thanks I want a new tent so they sent me one.In a box mangled by the courier. The tent bag was damaged but hey ho. The tent was intact so I pitched it. It was immediately obvious that all the areas under tension were not built to last, and indeed when I pitched it at a festival and took it down again after a week, it looked as though it's got only one more use in it. The tent pegs are joke pegs btw so make sure youve got proper ones with you, along with a decent power bank that'll last you the week. The gimmicky one won't. Oh and good luck getting it back in the bag. It's not as easy as the YouTube video.

Follow up review. Have now used this on several occasions, most recently April 2016 in the far SW of Cornwall where we had a variety of weather.Sun, mist, rain, wind gusting to between 40 and 50 mph (not all on the same day!); this tent stood up to it well and I remained dry, although I would probably more correctly describe it as a 3 season tent. The guying was adequate however at the height of the gale the top end of the tent facing into the prevailing wind started to flap about, but was stopped by securing an additional home brew guying point with string. Inside the tent I fixed another piece of string between the lantern hanging points as drying for socks and other light clothing articles. Necessity proved again to be the mother of invention. The canopy on the lee side of the wind was kept up with the provided poles for the entire duration, no problem. I remain very happy with this product.

This is a well thought through tent. There are not many 4 man pop up types available, but having had previous styles including frame, geodesic, and air inflatable, I found that all had their problems when used by an older camper (like myself) who is usually on his own, and does not wish to struggle for extended periods to either erect or break down. I noticed that the review on here was for an earlier version, which is shown without windows. There may well be other enhancements since the last posting of which I am unaware. The Cinch arrived in good condition in a cardboard pack marked “Made in China”. The outer carrier has a grab handle and two padded shoulder straps. Inside the carrier there are a series of three pouches secured by Velcro, containing two torches (convertible to interior lights), and canopy stays, pegs, repair kit, etc. Four special illuminated pegs are also included, to illuminate guy lines or to show where the tent is positioned in a crowded field at night for example. There are written instructions on how to pack the tent away, and the procedure is also shown in cartoon style, referring also to Youtube where there are several videos showing it being put away. There was a separate pole bag for the four canopy poles. This one is lighter than my previous inflatable, and in the images, is shown erected in various configurations. Canopy poles can be used at both doors, but I have shown the versatility of using a canopy pole pair used to secure one of the windows, as an alternative. Windows can be stayed, but are zippered at both sides to secure them when you do not wish them open. Ventilation is therefore not a problem, but even in the event that all the doors and windows are closed, there are still four additional vents which can be opened as needed. The dimensions for the 4 man model for 2015 appear correct, with overall height at a class leading 1.60 metres. With the inner, the maximum interior height is still 1.44 metres by my measurement. This is not enough for me to stand in, but sufficient for a six footer to be seated comfortably, at a table for example, and with a centimetre or two to spare. Double stitching appears to be used throughout and appears good quality. The roof has two Velcro fixings used for the optional solar charging panel for your mobile phone, with a separate entry port. I was impressed with this and hope to keep and use it for a long time to come. August 2015.

The tent arrived well wrapped up and safe from damage from the couriers, so that is always a good start and you know the suppliers like to ensure their products arrive in a good state.

On opening the bag we found two LED lanterns, metal tent pegs, four LED tent pegs and of course the tent itself. The accessories were neatly kept in small pockets sewn in to the tent bag, so no chance of them being loose and therefore not a potential tear threat to the material.

Also sewn in to the tent bag were the instructions for getting the tent down and back in to the bag. We like this approach, too many times have we had a separate sheet of paper with instructions, which inevitably gets lost or damaged.

We took the tent out and removed the securing strap from it and threw it in the air. It did not instantly pop up, however this was the first time it was used and with a small amount of encouragement the tent took shape on the grass.

It was very easy to pitch with the hoops for the tent pegs around the base at sensible and useful intervals to ensure the tent stayed secure. The tent has fully opening doors at both ends to allow air to nicely flow through and help keep you cool on those hot summer days.

There are porch areas at both ends which are a good size and one could keep their equipment in one end and use the other as the entrance, or however they wish, but it is a versatile option. The porch areas also come supplied with poles so you can raise them up to create an extra bit of shade, or a rain cover, depending on the weather! Each entrance has two sets of zips, one for the main access and also a fly sheet, so you can keep the tent cool without attracting all those little bugs!

Inside the tent is one large room / sleeping area. This is a four man tent, however with all your bags, your bed and yourself I could see four people in here being a bit of a squeeze. It is doable for a weekend camp, but this would suit a family of three or two better as this would allow a lot more room to move around in, get dressed, etc.

There are two hanging points inside the tent too, these are above each entrance and are perfect for hanging the LED lights that come with tent. These create a great amount of light and are the perfect size and weight for the tent.

The LED tent pegs are absolutely fab. They are plastic pegs with a pull out / push in type LED light on the end. So during the day, to avoid them getting broken or switched on by mistake, the lights are pushed inside the tent peg and then come dusk, you simply pull the light section out, twist them to on and then you can angle them upwards, sideways, etc. And they are pretty bright and would make the tent stand out from the rest and might help guide you back to the tent after a nights revelling at a festival.

They provide a link to a video to put the tent away on their website, and after watching this and reading the instructions in the tent bag, I gave putting it away a go. I have put quite a few pop up tents down in the past, and this follows the same general rules when collapsing it and I had the tent down and in the bag within a couple of minutes. For newbies it may take some confidence in that you will not break the poles, but to just go for it and the more you do it, and once you have the knack, the quicker it will get.

This is a good looking tent and one that is perfect for festivals or weekend camping. I would prefer something bigger if away for a week, but purely because I have so much stuff this tent would be bursting at the seams. However I will be using this regularly for weekends, festivals and garden camping, and would highly recommend it.

This really is a Cinch!
