7 Reviews of the Mongoose 2

I find this tent really easy to pitch, it's also easy to get back in the bag afterwards! I bought it as an easy tent to take to car shows but have lately been backpacking with it. So far it has been waterproof and stood up to a serious gale, my only wish is that the porch was suitable for cooking in when it's pouring with rain, otherwise a great tent.

Only a two man tent for small people. As mentioned, not much foot room. Inner made of mesh so not warm, although definitely warm enough for UK summers. Does use a lot of pegs but, once set up, very stable. Not really any storage space unless you use it as a one man tent then plenty of room inside the inner. Not the best backpacking tent, but possibly the best for the price (half that of any equivalent - less than £40). I use it when by myself for the odd single night stay when I know the weather is not too cold. If you want a tent with storage space, room to sit up and is good half way up a mountain in the middle of winter then buy a different tent. If you want something cheap thats waterproof, good for one person, isn't a silly single sheet pop-up and is only going to be used in decent weather then buy this.

Really easy to pitch (10 mins). Very light and compact bag. My son slept in it for a week during which there were a few heavy storms in Cornwall, it stood up to the wind with ease, a little damp inside though. I would mostly use this for short walking breaks in the summer. More H/Head would make this tent a real winner!

Excellent easy pitch more then enough room for me and my mate. Seemed ok when I camped at high rigg farm stood up to the wind rain and was was warm enough with 2 of us in it. There is only a couple of faults I wish the porches was larger to accommodate boots rucksack and to cook but for £30 you cant go wrong

Bought to be used as a backpacking tent but for a tiny tent it was rather fiddly to put up - inner first then the fly had to be thrown over and attached - so we didn't keep it long.

Seemed decent enough quality.

It's small and light - but light because the inner tent is made of mesh and that makes it a very COLD tent. It's too cold for UK summer camping. It takes a while to put up because there are so many peg points Ė we didnít peg the flysheet but the guys needed pegging to keep the tentís shape. There is enough room for 2 people and to store bags at the top and bottom of the tent Ė the 2 doors make it easier for 2 people to get in and out so doesnít feel that crowded. Itís not a very tall tent, my 5í10Ē partner couldnít sit up in it. There is a good number of inside pockets. The zips are a bit dodgy and I wonít be surprised if they break soon. Itís ok for the price but not great, fine if you need a lightweight tent for occasional backpacking/cycling but just go somewhere hot!

I can't really grumble about this tent, plenty of room for what we needed it for. We stayed 2 nights in it. Not much foot room but as long as it doesn't rain its ok!

Easy assembly, 5 minutes. Small and compact, easy to carry.
