1 Reviews of the Merlin

By: Ratty  Reason: I own(ed) one  Made in: 2016   Rating: 

This tent is an awesome backpacking tent, it is lightweight at just under 3kg, so ideal for the rucksack or perfect for camping in windy conditions.

The site we used this tent on was very windy, and it was easy to put it, two poles into each corner and then a supporting pole and the peg it out. It is as simple as that.

The space inside is a good size with enough room for two people, the air mattresses and your rucksack.

It is a light colour and gives a roomy feel.

What got me the most was how well this tent held up in the winds. The trees was all over the pace with the wind and the tent barely moved in the wind. It was even better when we got inside, there was a small amount of flapping, but that was maybe just me not tightening up the guys enoughs, however the tent was not affected by the wind at all. It help well, it stood its ground and is the perfect companion for when up a mountain or a very windy site on a coastal walk.

I would strongly recommend this tent to anyone looking to do the same.

Manufacturer's Description

The two-person Merlin is a two-porch/door single hoop tent that pitches outer first or together. It has an apex cross pole to extend the headroom into the porch areas. The use of a hub each side to connect two lower poles with the main hoop increases inner tent space and helps create vent protection. The tent features the Storm Guard system and single rope pegging points provide easy adjustment.
