2 Reviews of the Voyager 3 EX

By: Man on the Move  Reason: Other  Made in: 2013   Rating: 

This is by way of a review update.

The tent I was originally provided with was a 2013 model loaner.

On my return from Wales, I exchanged the loaner for a brand new tent which I have only just got around to pitching in the garden to check it out.

Sad to say Robens have dropped the excellent Line-Lok guyline cleats for a cheaper and in my opinion, inferior item (to be honest, I can't quite figure out how the new design is meant to work - it looks like a short strip of plastic with two holes in line and a hook on one end. The guy line loops through the two holes and each end is secured to the tent at the upper and a lower tie off points).

They've also dropped the red guylines with the integral reflective tracer for a cheaper alternative. Still red, but now without the reflective tracer and I think thinner (not too much of a problem as I'm replacing them with the Tesco day-glo green reflective guylines anyway).

Both moves appear to be cost cutting exercises and consequently, I feel it only appropriate to reduce the product rating accordingly.

The only other change is the inner tent opening has been reversed so you now stow the inner tent door in a pocket to the right of the entrance instead of to the left (as you enter the tent). I've no idea why this should be changed.

By: Man on the Move  Reason: I own(ed) one  Made in: 2013   Rating: 

After much web searching and review reading, this tent was the best 3-man combination for maximum space and a suitable pack size (at only 47cm x 20cm) to fit a motorcycle pannier. The only other tent on my shortlist was the Vango Omega 350, however that was excluded due to it's larger pack size (56cm x 20cm - which exceeded the internal dimensions of my panniers).

Although I tour solo, I felt the 3-man model offered more opportunity for others in the family and their respective partners to use it and I may even convince the wife to come along for a weekend camping in it (providing we take the car and not the bike).

Easy to pitch the Voyager and in still air at least, no need to rig the guy lines.

Not too bad to pack away either (although it might prove a bit of a handful on your own if there's a wind gusting). Just be sure to pack it to suit a 47cm length. If you attempt to pack it shorter, it will put unnecessary strain on the neck of the tent bag and will inevitably rip the neck band if you need to force the tent in.

Not a particularly cheap tent, but appears well made and of good quality components, apart that is from the pegs.

These I quickly replaced with Outwell half-round 24cm 'U' pegs which are far superior and more suitable for a wider range of pitch type.

Since I had a little problem seeing the red guy lines when not wearing my glasses, I've since replaced these with Hi-Vis green guy lines from Tesco (which were cheap enough at £2 per pack when bought on-line).

I haven't been camping for many years and made a fundamental mistake when using the Voyager for the first time. That being, I left the inner tent door open at night which resulted in considerable condensation accumulating on the inner fly sheet surface and a not so nice cold shower as I exited on the first morning and my shoulders brushed the flysheet surface.

That aside, I'd recommend this tent and only reserve 2 on the rating as I haven't experienced the tent in a full enough range of climates.

Manufacturer's Description

The Voyager 3EX tunnel features ripstop polyester outer, flat pole sleeves and aluminium alloy poles. The extended porch is perfect for expedition pack storage or for foul weather relaxation and the tentís weight is still low enough that it can be split amongst occupants as a spacious option if harsh weather is expected. The clip-in inner tent features a large O-shaped door for easy access and sitting without stressing the fabric.
