5 Reviews of the Hamer 500

A lovely fine weather [no wind] tent for a couple or young family. Under no circumstances try to pitch this tent on a windy day, I did try with my wife but gave up in the end, put tent in the bin, drove home, bought an Outwell tent the next day fantastic not tentastic. This is a lovely tent for a weekend away when you know that the weather will be dry and sunny, fat chance of that

Was quite concerned when water started beading inside the roof of the tent, was horrified when the poles buckled in the night and it collapsed around me, it wasn't even very windy. Bought from Tentastic - returned to Tentastic - never again.

We used the tent in the garden last year and liked the layout and the bedroom was more than big enough for the 3 of us (I wouldn't say it could sleep 5 as we only managed to fit one double and two single air beds in the bedroom). We took it to Devon this month and it didn't fare well in the wind and rain. The bedroom stayed dry and the living area wasn't too bad but then I had sealed the seams and water proofed it. The porch had to be taken down in the high winds and then the tent lost it's shape and leaked so we had to peg out the porch. Needless to say last Saturday we returned to find the tent flattened and the poles buckled and broken. I do not recommend this tent to anyone. Mine had to go in the nearest bin so we are tentless again

Oh my God! You certainly get what you pay for. We used this tent once in the Isle of Wight last year and for the whole trip we were unable to zip the door closed we had to use clothes pegs, We just erected it in the garden to check it over for a trip in a few weeks to Weymouth and once again the door wouldn't close, so my husband forced it a little and snap! Also one of the metal spike bits that go into the bottom of the poles snapped off, and the bedroom section is made of a material so thin its like tissue paper. We have learnt our lesson about cheap tents (I got it from Tentastic on Ebay for 87) and are currently looking for an Outwell. Its a lovely looking tent but very cheaply made, I can't say if it would have kept us dry as (thankfully) it didn't rain.

Cheap roomy easy pitching tent, that for good weather camping offers all that you need. 5 person well for a bunch of teenagers great for a family NO.

For the more serious camper not an option!

I do like it's style and an easy living space it gives for that long weekend away ideal for a couple.

What lets it down is robustness in windy weather and the leaking seams.
