1 Reviews of the Field Station

By: Johns559  Reason: I own(ed) one  Made in: 2017   Rating: 

A 3M high ,4.5M diameter tipi tent in polyester ,Robens call this a 8 berth tent ,with an inner it's 6 we use it for 2 .Easy to put up and good ventilation .Unfortunately the quality is poor ,my first one had holes in the peg and pole bags and missing inner tent clip . The replacement has a faulty adjustable centre pole and missing guy lines so can't be used .

The design of the front door zip is also very poor ,If you want to enter or leave the tent you unzip the vertical zip which curves around the top of the door this is the easy part , now you have to put your hand under the centre bottom of the door and move the zip towards the vertical zip when you reach this point you then have to disconnect the zip (as you would on a waterproof jacket ) you now have the door half open ,all this while on your knees and maybe in the dark .Like I said poor design to allow for the groundsheet to unzip to the centre pole ,this in turns creates a problem of water ingress through the zip .

To sum up a big lightweight tent ,small pack size and easy to pitch but flawed in quality and design .I can't really recommend it .

Manufacturer's Description

The Field Station tipi sleeps up to eight or can be used with an optional six-person two-door inner, making it an excellent quick-to-pitch base for groups. The tipi features a telescopic alloy centre pole and a zip-in groundsheet with an additional zip from door to pole to create a wet area. Three low vents assist airflow and the neat new Internal Apex Vent Control is simple to adjust from inside the tipi using just two cords.
