I got this free so shouldn't complain.

It currently resides in the garage with knackered poles and ripped pole sleeves. It suffered from terrible condensation, was impossible to get back in the bag and is basically a toy. The poles are going to be recycled for a flag and I'll think of what to do with the material. On the up side, the bag is good.

A good idea but we only bought it as it was in a sale in Sainsbury`s. My daughter and her friend used it for the first time last night and said it rained in, but reading previous reviews it may have been condensation. Not for serious camping, too small for a double air bed and not much room left for storage once the sleeping bags are in. The diameter is a bit big when you finally get it back in the bag- the diagram wasn`t much help. Maybe ok as an extra bedroom pod although it bends up like Turkish carpet slippers when it`s up! Oh, the dog loves it by the way as she thinks we are going away again. Just glad we only paid 8 for it.

Easy to put up. Not to collapse, despite watching the video many times. Sometimes it goes OK, but more often doesn't. Bad condensation problems. No use for bike or m/bike camping even when it packs down properly.

BUT, it is really easy to put up, & in good weather just needs 2 pegs to hold it. Groundsheet is thin, but I usually put in a separate one.

Brilliantly easy to put up. Impossible to collapse properly, even after watching the video. Eventually snapped the frame trying to get it small enough to secure so it didn't burst open in the car. We used it for storage rather than sleeping in, and stuff on the bottom did get damp so we eventually stood it on a tarp. Good idea, but doesn't work the way it should and is therefore very annoying.

This tent is awesome. I love the fact that it goes up so easy but have never been able to get it to lie flat again to go in the bag it came in. It does fold flat but its twice the size of the bag so I don't put it in there I just throw it in overall at 29.99 a bargain for a couple of nights out.

I would recommend this for couples as I am able to get a double airbed into it and sleep comfortably. The rest of my stuff I just keep in the car till I need it for example my cooking stove etc.

A very nice tent , I have brought it to go in to a larger tent to make a separate bedding compartment for one of my boys . But I am sure he can use it in the future for camping on his own .

The only couple of problems I have is that the tent tends to arc up and not lie flat on the ground (unless pegged out of course)

And it took a few times watching the procedure to collapse the tent but now I have it down to a fine art .

Bought two of these for me and my youngest daughter to try out for a couple of nights camping in the lake district (she complains about my snoring) so she wanted her own tent, I really wish I hadn't, as everyone knows it always rains in the lake district but these single skin tents are marketed as waterproof but they're not. Only a light downpour was enough to flood these tents making them virtually useless.

Bought two of these for the most amazing price, 7.84 from Sainsburys.

Lots of condensation in the morning, but the floor of the tent stayed dry. Just need to mop down with a towel in the morning.

Perfect for two small people without airbeds for one with an airbed.

Very easy to put up and even easier to put away. You just need to get the knack and once you study that its easy peesey lemon squeezy!

I think this tent is fine for weekend camping but not for any longer.

Bought one of these for the kids to play in outside the caravan. Pops up great , took hours to get back in the bag. Left up overnight, with no-one sleeping in it, the inside of the floor was wet in the morning.

Got it out of the bag the second time we used it and a ferrule popped out, the pole had split and we dumped it straight in the skip.

Bought one for our 11yr old son,who wanted his own space(didn't want to be seen sharing a tent with the parents more like!).We ordered it fairly close to our holiday and when arrived and put up in garden found 2 small holes in it.As time was short we and company agreed on a free repair kit and a partial refund(we got 30% back). The tent is fantastic apart from it being single skinned and therefore condensation in the mornings. We cut a small piece of tarpaulin to fit under tent to protect it/stop damp coming through. He also slept on an air bed and was dry and comfortable for the whole week(couldn't see 2 people using it with air beds,just enough room for 1 air bed + ruck sack).Putting away is a bit of a giggle until you get used to it,Overall though very pleased.
