Bought this from argos as a standby cost 42.99,stood up to very high wind,and persistent heavy rain on the outer hebrides(6nights)on my own. Plenty of room for (two,)cosy for three, four mm??.easy to erect as stated before, inner first which could get wet i got lucky.

All in a starter tent. It would take a double airbed easily.no problems packing it away

Great little tent for a short break, we fit a double airbed, child's ready bed and a border collie in ours! Yes it was very snug but it was fine for 2 nights. We spent August bank holiday in a very wet forest of dean! No leaks or problems with the tent. Easy to put up, bit more difficult to get back into the bag but we managed with a bit of patience! We took a gazebo to cook under and shelter from the rain to eat our food! Also be prepared for leaving most of your stuff in the car if you squeeze 3 people and a dog in to the tent! We enjoyed our first proper camping experience so much we are going to upgrade to a family tent with a living area as I don't think we could manage in this tent for more than a weekend. We will be keeping this tent though for festivals and to use as a pup tent/garden camping tent for our son when he is older.

Have had this tent for years and didnt pay a great deal for it in the sale, didnt expect much for the price but it is fantastic! My son uses it for camping out the back in the hols and it has never leaked and there is ample room inside. Took my 2 sons camping in it and it rained as soon as we arrived and carried on until we left! The tent is quick and easy to put up and causes no problems,fab tent for the money-but it is only a dome tent so isn't full height so maybe better for short term stays, if you are like me and like a bit of room and storage :)

I bought this tent from Argos to take to Cumbria. I wanted a relatively small tent as I hadn't been camping for many years - just enough to be comfortable with me and my walking kit.

Since then I have used it numerous times in all weathers including torrential rain and thunderstorms on Dartmoor and it has held up every time.

It is easy to pitch and has a good sized porch area for storage that stays pretty dry. The inner tent has a zippable mesh layer to the door which is good in the summer. There is plenty of room for me and the missus. Three would be a squeeze and four just about impossible.

The downside with the tents you pitch the inner first is that if it rains, it's going to get wet before you get a chance to put the flysheet on it. I've been pretty lucky so far!

Taking it down is quick and easy but it is sometimes a struggle to get it back in the zip bag.

I'm really pleased with it and can recommend it.

After looking around at various pup tents for my son to use for the first time, I decided on this little 4 man dome - yes it is bigger than a pup, but suits my sons needs for having a friend sleepover.

Since I bought this tent for half the rrp, I really wasn't expecting much, so was pleasantly surprised. It's a cracking little tent, I loved it so much I camped out in the garden with my daughter to give it a whirl .

The guys are nice and bright, it has mesh on the inner door, good air vents. You pitch the inner first, then put top fly over.

Well worth buying.

Bought it from Argos for myself and girlfriend after extensive searching and pricing up of tents throughout a wide range of shops. Bought it on an Argos deal with LED light, sleeping bags and mats so was by far the best value for money. Mats weren't very good so we've substituted them with a double air bed which fits lovely in the tent with plenty of room for storage either side. However, this storage room would be lost if more than two people were staying in it. Porch is brilliant as we stored our shoes, stove and chairs in it - this stops the inside of the tent getting mucky.

Erecting the tent was easy peasy. Only took us 15 mins to get all pegged in. Downside is if it's windy it is more difficult as you are dealing with large bits of material that like to be blown away in wind - also, if it's rainy then the inside gets wet whilst erecting.

It's a struggle to get it all back into the bag and we haven't tried to - we've put the majority of it into the bag and the main inside bit (which is chunkier anyway) into a separate bag. Also a good thing to note is that if it's raining when taking the tent down, just shove it all in a boot and let it air dry at home - it dries really quickly. You can then put it away properly in your own time without getting annoyed at the weather!

I would definitely recommend this tent for couples and beginners. I have already used this tent 3 times this year and am planning on using it again in the future.

We bought this tent as camping first timers. It is a surprisingly easy tent to put up, we realised after a couple of uses that is best to peg it down once the inner tent has been erected so the fly sheet fits better. We have not used this in heavy rain but had a few showers and no leaks. Would say this is a bit on the small side for 4 men but was easy to fit a double air bed and single airbed inside with a small gap between but no room for luggage. The porch is a nice size for a small camping table and shoes to go in and a separate small groundsheet is provided for this area.

All in all a great weekend getaway tent

Got this tent for a proposed trip to the Scottish Highlands in August. Brought from Argos at Half Price

Set it up in garden - fairly easy to set up plenty of room for two inside and maybe one child or four children no problem. Set up in garden to test durability

Over a period of one week we have had extreme heat , torrential rain,and very windy conditions. Slept in it for four nights and no problems at all.Left it up till the weekend no rain inside very stable didn't even use the guy ropes. Putting away is another story struggled to get back into the bag otherwise a great value buy for the money 34:99

A superb little tent in which we managed to get a double and single air bed in quite comfortably, and it would easily sleep 4 without any airbeds. Quick and easy to put up, even in the dark and without instructions (didnt realise they are sewn into the bag until we came to put it away!)

Whilst we were away it rained constantly all day and it only leaked where our little one poked the wall, even then it was literally a couple of drops! There's just enough room for your shoes/wellies and coat in the entrance, and there's even a groundsheet supplied to keep them dry but main bags/food will need to be kept in the car!

Other good points are: sealed seams, pockets in bedroom for you torches, as well as a little hanging pockets thingy! The closable airvents on the roof eliminated condensation, and the small windows in the porch add a cute feature! The reflective guyropes are a fantastic idea, especially after a trip to the pub!

All in all a great little tent, ideal for backpackers, overnight and weekend stays!

This tent has the reputable name of Regatta and represents one of a line of new tent options from this manufacturer. This is our first tent and we took it for a trial weekend at Loch Lomond in May 2010. Erecting the tent was a sinch with clear instructions sewn into the tent bag, it is big enough for 4 providing that all the occupants are not on the large side! We inflated a double airbed and there would have been room for one single beside it. However, we found it very warm, dry and comfortable for two persons (this left room for bags and other items on the side).

Argos have been offering the tent at half-price recently (the normal RRP is 69.99) and at 34.99 is an absolute bargain for the quality of the tent. Packing up was easy too and the tent takes up very little boot space.
