I bought this tent as covid hit so 1st time used this June (2022). Pitching relatively east and will get better with practice. It was a good size for me and young son with plenty of room in the sleeping area. The porch is a good addition with 2 access points / doors, one of which can be held open with king poles (not supplied) to have an open porch area. Only gripe is the side door which if it has rained can allow drops into the tent when opening as others have mentioned. Having said all that would I but this tent again knowing the slight downside. Absolutely, it's a good little tent and as these are often discounted they can be an absolute bargain and it also goes back in it's bag, result.

I love my Avon, it's been to all sorts of places and withstood some truly terrible weather conditions without suffering a single leak, tear or cracked pole.

Super quick and easy to pitch, acres of space both in the tent and porch which features a groundsheet too.

Headroom is great, lots of room for cooking and stashing gear in the porch too.

Split between 2 people, the carry weight is acceptable. Unlike a lot of tents which are advertised as 3 person, there actually is room for 3 people in the Avon.

I bought this tent as a replacement for a HI Gear Atom 3 which was stolen after many good outings. I was after the a Vango Alpha but they had sold out as I wanted one at short niotice so after some thought I bought an Avon 300 Deluxe from Millets, priced at 59 and an extra 15% off with a code so got it for 50. We used the tent for 3 nights in Scotland over the last May bank 2016 holiday in exceptionally warm weather.

The tent is easy to pitch with only 3 poles and can be erected by one person in 10 to 15 minutes. The front porch is spacious for a small tent with room to store all the essentials, the ground sheet is attached to the bedroom but not the fly sheet so we found the midges could get in easily.

The bedroom is large enough for 2 people but would be cramped with 3, we used a double airbed which was snug from door to back. We did find in the mornings that there was a lot of internal condensation on the flysheet and so had to air the tent with the door open, as there is only a single skin door with no net inner this lead to more midges. As always when I return from camping I air my tent over the washing line and check everything over, I found a 2cm split in the ground sheet to the bedroom and so returned to Millets for a full refund. I will go back to Millets for their service to buy the Alpha when it comes back in stock as the service was superb. The only reason I marked this tent down is that we didn't rain test it and the splitting of the ground sheet.

Fantastic tent. I bought mine because a friend owned one and I really liked the big porch area. I had previously used a perfectly serviceable tent but without a porch and it makes life so much easier when you can get out of the sleeping area without climbing bum-first into the outdoors!

Wait for the sales if you buy one. They're full price at 90 but I got mine for 54.

I recently purchased this tent as my last 2-man tent was a bit small. This tent has plenty of room for 2 people. The additional porch area is really useful, however as per other reviews, the roof of the porch does get quite a lot of condensation on it in the morning.

When I bought this tent, its RRP was 90 (I got it cheaper in a sale)

Compared to other tents of this size & price range, I think this is a great tent.

Having used smaller 2 man tents in the past, this upgrade to a 3 was a bonus. Very quick to pitch (and take down). Plenty of room (but don't try to stand up!), for living space in the sleeping compartment and also storage in the porch. Used it for a week long stay in sunny Jersey and it was more than adequate, although for longer stays or cooler weather, you would require more room 'indoors'. I agree with earlier reviews about condensation on the inside of the porch, resulting in a few wet heads and backs in the mornings, but not exactly a major issue.

All in all, excellent value and an essential part of a long weekend break.

Excellent small tent, with the porch groundsheet sewn into the tent inner. Loads of room in the porch area. Fast to put up and take down.

Unfortunately not so good in high winds, the wind shattered a pole section supporting the porch and shattered one of the main poles in a few places. All in all a great allround tent.

I have just bought this tent I am a single mum with a 7 yr old and have never pitched a tent or been camping before so this is all new to me. I was looking for a tent big enough for two but easy to erect on my own,I first tried a pop up tent but it was a nightmare , so I returned it and bought this little one and it is perfect, easy to erect when you know what you are doing, spacious inside and the porch area is great for storage, the only draw back is the gap around the bottom in the porch area.I would definitely recommend to anyone who is interested in camping ,great as a first time buy.

Bought one of these for my son and his girlfriend. What a bargain! We were only away for a weekend, but it absolutely poured down with heavy rain for a whole day, and there were no leaks at all.

Erects quickly and easily, loads of space, even with a large airbed, and storage at the end.

The only reason it doesn't get a '10' is for the same reason that others have given - the issue of water ingress when unzipping the door.

Bought this for a week's camping in Devon. I wanted something smaller and lighter than my Lichfield Creek 4-man but roomy enough for two people who can't pack light.

The good:

Fantastic porch space, generous sleeping area. Lots of room for two people and plenty of kit.

Wet boots etc can be zipped out of the sleeping area overnight.

Easy to pitch for the size of it.

Didn't have any problem with water running onto the porch groundsheet even on a very wet day - having the groundsheet hooked/pegged out under tension helps a lot.

The bad:

White inner makes it very bright in the mornings. Wear an eye mask or get up at dawn!

Design of the door is dodgy in wet weather; getting in and out means getting water down your neck, and there were also some drips coming in through the stitching on the zip. Worth going over it with seam sealant. If I was going again I'd put up a tarp shelter to shield the door from the wind and rain and give some space to cook outside.
