9 Reviews of the Kent

By: Two WheelCamper  Reason: I own(ed) one  Made in: 2009   Rating: 

I own several tents but use this Eurohike when I am off on my own, it has seen several years of use now and I find it sturdy in high winds, dry in heavy rain and easy to put up and take down. With the vents shut up, you do get condensation so to avoid this, open the vents ! It is the size a light, 2 berth tent should be and packs up easily and quickly. Outer first keeps the inner dry when putting up in bad weather. The only negative comment I have is that the porch groundsheet is not a great fit, but this does stop water running in off the flysheet from outside. Only improvement I would make (which cost it 1 star) would be to make it a linked in, bathtub style groundsheet in the porch. Apart from that, and for the cost of the tent, it is superb .

I bought this tent years ago and have only used it twice. I feel the interior could be slightly roomier. I have never had any leaks into the living space but the porch is prone to flooding. The two panels which house 2 of the 3 windows can become slack and flap in the wind and don't completely cover the porch groundsheet. The way around this is to fold the porch groundsheet back under itself so water doesn't pool inside the tent. A good tent for the price.

I've had this tent now for a few years, and have used it in some very wet conditions, and have never had a drop of a leak. I also haven't had the condensation problems a couple have talked about. I've not found it difficult to peg out, like Thierry says - you just have to be sensible & methodical about getting it right. It takes me about 15 mins single handed. I'm baffled by Mrwoo1234's comment 'the groundsheet lies close to the floor'! I'm wondering where his groundsheets usually lie! Seriously, for the 50 I think I paid for it, it's a bargain. Yes, you could get a bit better, a bit lighter etc, but you'd have to spend a lot, lot more money. It has a great sized porch, roomy double sleeping area, and is well constructed. What more do you want for the money?

I have used this tent for the last 5 years whilst touring with friends on our motorbikes. It is compact and the pack size is ideal for carrying on a motorcycle. I bought it due to the porch, it houses leathers, helmet, bike boots and panniers easily and keeps them out of the sleeping area, especially useful if they are wet. Easy to put up. Has never let water in despite having camped a few times in heavy rain. My only gripe is that the sleeping area has two small inadequate storage pockets, apart from that its great and for 30 from Millets, an absolute bargain.

I used this tent a few years ago we still have it and used it again a couple of weeks ago.

Easy to put it and take down. Packs away into a small bag and is very transportable. Its been loaned out on numerous occasions and everyone has been happy with it.

We bought the tent in the the summer of 2004 and took it to the south coast Devon, Boscastle? We weren't in Boscastle but we had the rain. The tent. Never let a drop in. I was very impressed. A sound little tent, a fair sized porch. But its a weekend tent. We tried a couple of weeks but it was tricky.

I bought my eurohike Kent in 2007, I purchased it because I liked the prospect of having a separate porch area away from the sleeping compartment, pitching the tent correctly is easy with only three poles to erect. The biggest downfall with this tent is because the groundsheet lies close to the floor, the porch area can become somewhat flooded in areas, another drawback is the positioning of the doors as when it rains and you open the doors rainwater drips from the top of the opening and falls on the groundsheet. I have used mine twice now, but I am seriously thinking about buying another, as the eurohike Kent fails to impress in rainy conditions!

I bought this for festivals as it works really well without guy ropes (which invariably get tripped over at festivals). In the worst winds we have encountered I pitched it back to the wind with just 2 ropes attached until it calmed.

It is quick and easy to put up (I regularly do it alone) easily fits a double airbed, has a good size porch so you aren't sleeping on top of all your stuff.

It can be a little drafty on cold nights, and the way it pitches does mean the bottom of the fly sheet sometimes sits on the ground collecting moisture. But we wrap up warm and have never had any damp inside the tent. And we took it to some of the wettest Glastonbury festivals and survived completely dry when all around us were swimming :o)

I changed my old good tent (15 years old) for this one but I think I made a mistake!

The fly sheet touch the ground so in the morning, it is full of water (condensation). With my old tent, the fly sheet was about 4 cm above the ground and I never had so much water.

If you don't peg it correctly and it's quiet difficult, as you can see in the customer pictures, the inner touch the fly sheet and drops of water (condensation) fall inside.

The inner have two ''breathable' triangles'' so cold air can easily enter inside. The 'breathable' material up the inner door which you can close would have be enough. Or make the 'triangles' 'close-able'.

The large porch with 2 doors and ground sheet was the reason I bought it. Travelling by motorbike, I put my old good tent in the bin. What a mistake!

Two words for this tent : Wet and Cold.

We bought a Kent when it was in the end of season sale. I think we paid 30 for it in Millets. It's a great little tent, the large porch being the main reason we went for it but a roomy sleeping space too. It stood up to one major storm (and lots of rain) in Northern Spain in September. Very good value for money - only quibble is that there aren't enough internal pockets, but it's a minor drawback.
