1 Reviews of the Columbia Squall Ridge Tent
By: Mr+Mrs H Reason: I own(ed) one Made in: 2005 Rating:
We've had this tent since approx 2005. We wanted to replace our smaller, low height tent and I chose this due to its standing height.
It has plenty of space for the two of us and all of our gear, it was also okay for me and my brothers three kids, but a bit of a squeeze when I stayed in it with three of my friends !
Its very easy to put up (ring and pin) and although I usually do this with my hubby, I did manage it last year with just the help from my brothers kids - just not sure I could manage it on my own.
My one complaint is that the porch poles stretch the fly so much that one of the corners has ripped (a common problem when checking online reviews) Don't quote me but I think the manufacturers pics are of the 2006 model, ours has a more horseshoe shaped porch. I had to repair it with various multicoloured patch strips I had in my kit, so its a bit of a botch job. Luckily as the tent is of a symmetrical design, so I just pitch this door to the back where no-one sees it (i'll post some pics when we camp in June)
We have camped in some very wet and windy weather up in the North East, but it has never let in any water and has always kept us warm May-Sept (we've never had any heating appliances - although we are planning to get EHU this year so we can extend our camping season)
During the warm weather the ventilation system is great for keeping the tent cool during the day.
The floor seems really strong, we have never had a footprint and i'm a bit slack when it comes to thoroughly checking for stones, but it has never let us down. (having read the advice on her though I may get a tarp or something, just to improve its chances of longevity)
The extras such as the hanging loft gear are useful for drying towels on during the day. The storage pouches to the left of each door are handy for torches and other essentials, I just wish there were one on either side, so that we had one each. Same with the drinks holders.
Overall I think that for a low cost tent, it has more than proved itself during the past 7 years. Its been very good value for money and I hope we get to use it for many more years to come.
I've only got a few pics at the moment, but i'll post more in June.
