This is a quick and easy alternative to fussing around with poles.

I made it even easier by using an electric pump>

Yes, the beams do crease but with enough air they are fine to do the job they were mades for.

The fabric is not the most luxurious and it does little to keep out light first thing but it will get you up and moving.

I have sorted deflating and getting it back in its bag and can now do this on my own which is a bonus as it means I am still on speaking terms with the wife on the return journey!

Zips (on mine) are a little tempermental and quite often stick usually when your busting to go to the loo in the middle of the night.

On the whole, I like this tent. Its quick & easy to get up, take down and is a good size for 3-4 people.

Bought us a Cirrus 6 to stop the pole rows with the wife.In my opinion

Good points -

1) Great bit of kit and very easy to go up and peg out (not sure abouth the 60 secs though !) I personally have got an electric pump and then finish off with the manual one provided

2) It rained before we was going home, this was a torrential downpour and not a droplet in site !

3) Bedrooms and layout is great

Bad Points

1) On the second journey, it seems as though the left hand side air tube is kinked as it will not set out correctly, causing the doors not to zip correctly.Will have another go next time , if not visit go outdoors

2) We have had 2 Carpets ! The first one had a mark on it.The second one had two carpets stitched together that was different colours !

3) We went to purchase a Porch Awning, they have now pulled them from the selves at Go Outdoors as there is a manufacturer problem. I went to post this on the Go Outdoors website but they wouldn't allow it !

4) It would be better if there was a canopy on both sides

All in all a good tent design but not well built and a lack of quality control

Really love our new inflatable tent. Inflates really easily and is up and fully ready for use so much quicker than a standard tent.

Good amount of space.

Very simple to deflate and Also very easy to pack away - although it took a couple of goes before we mastered how to fold up tight enough to get fully back into bag.

Pitched the tent in Rossilli bay end of May. Absolutely fine- very pleased with ease of inflating , space and light. Fast forward six weeks later at the same site awoke amidst wind and rain and lying with our two-year old in a collapsed tent ( photo attached). Tried readjusting guy ropes and checked inflation pressures, valves and even tried manually pushing up the arches to no avail. Spent the night propping up the arches with bags. They were fully (but not over) inflated but just couldn't withstand the wind. Very disappointed- not fit for purpose. Unless you can guarantee a calm sunny day DO NOT trust this tent. Back to pole tents for us. An expensive mistake as Go Outdoors refused to refund, giving credit note instead, so we're left with credit that will take us years to use.

Used twice so far. Bought this tent as it was a bargain price 475.00 just before christmas 2014. Material seems really good quality bought it for just two of us use one bedroom for high double airbed, remove dividing centre for toilet clothes etc. Reason such a big tent for two, I use electric wheelchair so need to have loo for through night and really bad weather plenty of room for that with a folding frame round it. Husband can inflate it on his own but after 1st use with hand pump decided to use our Vango electric pump that we have with our big 8 berth for when grandsons come with us. Plenty of room in living area small point ehu access other side to other tents we have had maybe could do with one each side, canopy over other side door would also be useful. Now for few faults front entrance only few small strips velcro so very draughty, biggest problem we have found is that the air tubes on one side tend to kink. We have tried moving guy ropes, unpegging and pegging out again few others on other camp chat have same problem. Hence 8*. Spoke to someone at Go outdoors tried explaining and showing them problem on one they had on display and photos we had taken, didn't have any idea why it should happen. But because the tubes aren't straight the door pulls so zip is tight and bedroom pulls to one side. Going to try to contact Hi Gear with photos see if there is a solution or is it a fault that needs fixing/replacing.

I love my tent, with the porch is very roomy, the porch is an absolute pain however to attatch to the tent and pings off the front in a little wind. Used the tent 3 times now, 4 adults, one child and two dogs is the most we've had stay and its plenty big enough.

The door flapping is an issue if your facing into the wind and rain - water does blow in - we tried pulling the front more taught which made no difference - with the porch attached this was not a problem.

My previous tent was a Montana 6 and I don't miss it a bit now I've discovered inflatable tents.

With a rally of 3 we had it up in around 2 minutes, then a group effort of pegging out we had the kettle on within 10 and sat and watched others pitching their pole tents.

It's stood up to torrential down poors and in the wind tunnel that is hayfield valley in the Peak District. We even had a quick but heavy downpour of hailstone.

The fly screens I agree are very thin but these did not snag even with my two dogs jumping up at them and clawing at them.

The outer fabric feels much thicker than any I've ever felt.

Putting down the tent was also really easy - we undid the air valves, left it to deflate and within 10mins was flat enough to fold and roll back into the bag.

There are plenty of air vents to avoid condensation and I loved the zip open vent behind the bedrooms that allowed for plenty of ventilation.

The only problem we found with the bedrooms is the back really does sag and there is a lot of wasted space behind the bedrooms, could of done with a couple of loops to attach the back of bedrooms to the back of the tent, even pushing firmly on the inner tent towards the back it's a foot away from the outer tent - I must admit the dogs enjoyed roaming in that space though!

All in all, a good tent for the price, 9/10 due to front door flapping, and the porch being an absolute pain to attatch.

Loved most - the fact it inflates all as one and not separate tubes to mess with, we were told at purchase that replacement tubes are available directly from hi gear though I was not told the price of this.

Bought this tent last year in the sale. Finally just used it for a week away. Easy to pump up no problems there as reading other reviews on here seeing they had problems. Plenty of space in living area also bedrooms. No way can this be a 6 berth tho. No probs with drafts from the doors. Only problem we had was when doing up the doors they can be a little hard at times.

But overall great tent good buy

Bought the cirrus 6 as our 1st ever tent. We now realise we should have got one with a porch as not all sites allow gazebos! Where else do you cook. Tent is very easy to put up and take down. Definitely not for 6 though. Pleased with the quality but wish we had done more research. Still you live and learn.

Just got back from a camping trip in Devon where we arrived with our Khyam Quick Erect 4 Beth tent on the Friday and bought the Hi-Gear Cirrus 6 the next day. So we had a day of erecting a new tent, moving all our stuff and taking down the old one. That's the scene set. The Hi-Gear Cirrus 6 is a wonderful tent and we had a great week with it. A couple of very small niggles which would not take long to sort by Hi-Gear. It would be so much better if the canopy was over both side doors and the zip for cables was on both sides and wire tapes put on both side for the overhead light. We wanted to use the door with the canopy but that meant having the kitchen and electrics over the other side, so we had to bring the cable in through the bottom of the door and could not tape up the light wire. All small things, which did not spoil our joy of the tent. We did not manage to get it back in the bag, but it think that was because we rolled it, rather than folded it, and so we are going to have some practice of this now we are back home. But putting it ill and taking it down was a dream. Wish there was a video showing you how to fold it up and pack it away. We can find ones showing you how to put it up. We did try to remember how it went when we opened it for the first time, but memory failed us when packing it up.Getting old! We love our new tent.

Love my tent! First one I have actually owned and I wanted it to be easy to put up with no husband with me on the trip. We practised in the garden before we went and on the day followed the instructions to the letter - it went up so easily. It was warm, stood up to the English wet weather and winds and was spacious enough for the three of us using it - we had high camp beds which meant plenty of storage for our bags underneath them, Personally, I would not put more than 4 in the tent max as it is a bit squishy otherwise. Loved the option of mesh window cover to keep out the flies, or clear plastic cover when raining. Let in loads of light with all three sides having large windows/doors. The canopy over the side door meant even when it rained you could enter and exit the tent without the rain coming in - I would like to see a door canopy over the door on the other side too so it gave better options of which side to use for exit. Carpet helped make it cosy underfoot. The tent did not sag at all - but we did take care when putting up to get it as flat and straight as we could before pegging down.

Did not think much to the pump it came with and found a yellow stirrup pump very similar to the black one actually pumped up much more easily. Packed away just as fast as it went up - no problems with air in the beams and no tent flapping around as several around us had with their tunnel pole tents. Packed into the bag easily. So = really love my tent but one word of advice - make sure to PACK THE PUMP! We were near a Go Outdoors so getting a nice new cheap pump was not a disaster(especially as the yellow one was much speedier) but we are unlikely to be near a Go Outdoors every time!

Manufacturer's Description

The Hi Gear Airgo Cirrus 6 is an easily pitched, roomy tent that can accomodate 6 campers and their gear with space to spare.

Part of the Hi Gear Airgo range, it takes the hassle out of setting up your tent. Built using highly robust double skinned beams that are simply filled with air using the included stirrup pump, it provides a rigid pole-free frame in minutes. Setup is simple, quick and easy - all the beams are connected so they inflate from a single inflation point.

The inners are made using breathable fabric with mesh venting for extra ventilation, with multiple tent tidy pockets for simple storage.

It boasts a large front door and 2 side doors, for easy entry and total ventilation. One side door has a rain hood, so you can keep it open even in wet weather without rain getting inside.

The Cirrus 6's superb build quality, with strong guying points and multiple guy lines, ensure that it will stay stable and in one piece even in harsh weather conditions.

Comes with a stirrup pump for fast, easy inflation and deflation
