2 Reviews of the Freelander Canopy
By: GHammy Reason: I've used one Made in: 2010 Rating:
My friend let me borrow his one of these stating it makes a world of difference, so of course I was expecting a lot (probably explains the stars).
So I put the tent up and then remembered that I brought this canopy along. Turns out it is just a sheet, the poles you use are the ones in the kyham tent to lift the door up into a canopy of sorts. When it was up I stood back and thought why on earth would I buy this. It doesn't give you any extra sheltered space to sit under or keep more stuff, it just covers the doorway to solve the only flaw I can think of with the freelander (which is the fact it lets rain in if the door is opened due to its slope).
I left it up thinking it was pointless but wasnt harming anyone. Later on it started to rain and I got a bit soaked coming from the portaloo so I decided to change, some friendly neighbour (also a freelander owner) thought id left the door of my tent open (due to the canopy looking like it does) and in a panciked state dashed to the tent trying to save me from soggy kit. For some unknown reason this involved opening my door and catching me starkers and unaware(possibly screaming like a girl).
If a canopy looks like and does the job of the door when that is used as one, its not worth the money.
If they had made a sort of tunnel that extends out and covers the front making a bit of storage space it would be great but this sucks and is seriously not worth it.
I handed it back to my friend after the weekend and told him what happened and now he cant recommend it enough. Sods law eh?.

This I a very useful piece of equipment.
Used this for the 1st time in April, was camping in Swaledsale over the Easter period, so did not have much rain.
But the rain we did have up there, this stopped it from collecting at the bottom of the door, and gives you good shelter when sat under this outside your tent

The Freelander Canopy is a great accessory for the Freelander tent. The Canopy clips on in place of the standard top cap and using the canopy poles supplied with the Freelander tent, it creates a generous porch canopy sheltering the doorway from the elements.
Will fit current and previous Freelander and Freelander DLX tents.
