2 Reviews of the Darwin 3+

To update my previous review, I have two points about pitching and using this tent. When pitching, don't forget the velcro tabs to secure the fly sheet to the poles. I have found securing the back of the fly first is helpful as you can then pull the sheet forward and peg out more evenly. Secondly, the ground sheet benefits from having a firm folding at the front. Otherwise it can get exposed when the wind gusts, and this could allow rain to pool. Having said that, I still find this to be a super quality small tent.

I have bought this tent to add to our family collection. We have large family tents but needed a smaller tent for 'father and son' weekend trips.

The Darwin 3+ is easy erect. I have only worked out an 'inner first' approach so far, although I have read about claims that it can be done outer first. I can't see how, but maybe it will dawn on me in time.

The high arch gives a real sense of space and openness to the tent, and the crossed main poles create good stability. There appears to be good ventilation, and the format of the vents is similar to that on our larger Outwell family tents.

The porch area is large enough to be useful. I think the ground sheet links to the flysheet are a good compromise, but you need to make sure you have set your flysheet on evenly for this to be effective.

All in all, it seems like a very good value, spacious weekend tent. I have only held back from a 10 out of 10 score because I need to test it in a range of conditions.
