5 Reviews of the Airgo Solus Horizon 6

By: Lorimac  Reason: I own(ed) one  Made in: 2015   Rating: 

Lovely and roomy tent. Good lighting through windows. Seems waterproof in body of tent, Although water had pooled outside around the beam and this came straight into the tent through the bottom of the airbeam, and went under carpet. Would need to ensure underneath was very level. There is a vent above main door which can be cool in evenings. We are considering taping it off. (There is plenty ventilation at windows which you can open and close with the velcro.) Also bottom of the main door is closed by velcro. Both my dogs managed to escape through this no problem at all. Would have been better zipped all around. Our next issue was the two canopy poles both snapped in a very light breeze. All in all we did love the tent for its spaciousness and light, but will need some adjustments before we use it again.

This is our first tent so haven't really got anything to compare it too but we found it to be a great family tent with plenty of room for a family of two adults and three children (7,8 and 1). We also had very windy weather overnight on one of our trips but the tent stood strong whilst some of the pole tents around us collapsed.

The only downside we could find was that the light hook was right in front of the bedroom pods which wasn't ideal.

This tent really apealled to us we took a very long time

To decide if it was right having almost lived in it for hours inside go outdoors in lincoln we eventually bought ours in the edinburgh leith store we have used it on two occasions so far 9 days and seven days separate now the tent; easy up,plenty of space inside windows let in plenty of light really glad we bought it however where theres good theres always a bad ; o k the large vent above the main door could do with a cover to close when windy or at night the side window vents again do not stop the draught at all the side doors whilst having a porch type cover over the door dosent stop the rain from entering the tent not a big complaint but hey it could be better. Inside the tent the carpet lets it down a lesser quality than we expected for the price and lastly the window hook points are flimsy we are expecting them to tear at anytime soon because they are small footery pieces ov plastic/vinyl and are quite hard to do especiall if you have large hands sorry for going on a bit but this is my review

Nice size family tent, plenty of room inside to have table and chairs if weather bad outside.

Front proch is great offering good shelter for cooking and sitting out side whilst still sheltered.

Pitching on my own was easy, pegged 4 corners and used an electric pump (Sevylor 15 PSI 12 Volt Electric Tent, Awning & Kayak Pump) just set to required pressure and as the pump inflated the beam I was able to do other tasks as once it reaches the required pressure the pump cuts out. So pitching took me about 7 to 10 minutes, then just pegged out rest of tent.

Negative points:

The front ventilation (full length above door) has no flap or cover, so when wind blows towards front you can really feel it in tent.

Side ventilation vents don't close very well and you can feel wind blowing through them.

Light hanging point is against bedroom, I have to move the zips on the centre beam to the middle and attach light from that.

Due to them issues I have only scored this a 7/10.

Huge floor space, very roomy but easily warmed in a couple of minutes with a small blow heater.

Goes up in about 10mins with 2 people working together, might get quicker with practise.

Built in inner skin, keeps the crawlers out.

Good spacing between the tent and the inner bedroom skin.

Light and airy, plenty of large windows and ventilation spots.

Strong and visible guidelines strengthening the tent.

Stood up to some strong winds, the tent itself barely moved unlike pole tents around us.

Canopy/porch section is great for keeping your cooking equipment set up in and keeping stoves out of the tent.

Fly screens on the 2 side entrances and the bedroom windows feel like good quality and do the job well.

Great looking tent!


Bedroom ventilation flap could have had some more funding given the price of the tent. 3 tiny velcro tabs were not enough to tack down the window in strong winds so we had a very sleepless night due to the flapping.

No light/lantern hook up in the centre of the main living area, its directly above the front of the bedroom skin meaning it sits against the canvas which could be damaged due to lamp heat so we wont use it.

Side entrances are at an angle so you struggle to zip open the doors and have to stand inside the tent while hanging on the outside in order to reach the zip.

Its because of these 3 not so good points that I cant give this tent 10/10 but I do still love it and would recommend it if you can work around the niggles.
