Good value small tent for good weather.
I have a couple of large tents but as a quick pitch small tent for short/single night stays this looked ideal to me.
It is quite light, is very quick to pitch (can sometimes be a bit fiddly as the poles can fold back when you are putting it up) but you can have it up in a couple minutes normally.
It is very cosy for two people and the only real big downside I found is that, as someone who is 6 foot tall, when lying down in the tent I am touching both ends and could not fully stretch out. The specifications of the tent seem to suggest it would be fine but for me to sleep comfortable I would really need this tent to be a bit larger.
As said it is light and so a thinner material and I don't feel the poles or the plastic hinges are very robust. I think for the cost its fair value but I would only expect to get a couple of seasons from it.

This is going to be a hard one to review, as we got this tent for one purpose only ie: instant sunny getaways. I can say its so quick and simple to erect. You can fit a double size low airbed in it along with a small bedside box, but not much else. So for 2 people it can be done but for 1 its ideal.
2 doors, both have mesh and 2 little mesh windows. We left one door open with just the mesh closed to sleep on the warm nights we had in it. I cant say how it would perform in the wind and rain, but it seems pretty robust. Its just its simplicity that sold it for us and just wish they made a slightly bigger one.

I bought this for my son when he and his friends' vehicle for the recent Rust to Rome event had to be swapped and he couldn't take his Outwell Fusion.
Delivery - I ordered it by phone from Olpro on the Monday morning and despite living on a Scottish island, their 48 hours delivery was confirmed. Slightly disappointed to find that, despite what it says on the website about ordering in the morning, the tent wasn't actually despatched until the Tuesday and by 6pm on the Thursday was in a state of panic, but it was duly delivered by our postie at 6.30pm, so well done Olpro for keeping to your deliver target.
The backpack the tent comes in is fine, though it could be a bit more generous in size for re-packing - it's quite a tight fit to get the tent back in but my son soon figured out the folds to make this easier. Beware when unpacking not to lose the square section that fits over the top of the tent covering the pop-up mechanism.
Erection - this is a really quick erect tent - very simple with good instructions and son could put it up, including pegging out quicker than his Outwell Fusion - it also has more sitting head height as well, being a dome design. Taking it down is just as simple, just fold carefully to get it back in the backpack.
My son managed to leave the cover for the pop-up mechanism behind but despite that, torrential rain in the Lakes on first use did not get in and the double skin gave good protection. However, it's worth noting that the 'porch' over the two doors can let driving rain in as it's effectively a single skin on those sections. He did not have any ventilation/condensation issues on the trip.
The pegs provided aren't very good so either take your own good ones or, if a newbie to camping, invest in some decent pegs.
The quality of seams and zips was excellent.
This review is based on eight nights, each night in a different location. It's not possible to say how durable the mechanism will prove to be over long term use but for £55 including delivery, given the ease of erection/dismantling, this tent is seriously worth considering for weekends away or touring.

The OLPRO POP Tent is one of the fastest pitching tents on the market with an average set up time of 1 minute which makes it perfect for taking to festivals when you want to join the fun as quickly as possible. Simply pull from the bag, unfold the legs and push the POP mechanism at the top and the tent will take shape. It is takes a similar time and is just as simple to pack away which means you can take it home with ease.
The tent is double layered, has a sewn in groundsheet and is fully waterproof which will ensure you are kept dry during the inevitable wet weather.
