1 Reviews of the Helsinki 6

By: CCastleView  Reason: I own(ed) one  Made in: 2015   Rating: 

Our first camping trip as a family was very memorable in the Helsinki tent.

It was easy to assemble (be sure to to practice once at home first to ensure you understand the instructions).

I love the fully enclosed sleeping area with both mesh and fabric closures. There's a privacy screen to turn this area into 2 separate sleeping quarters, each with their own entrances from the main area of the tent.

The poles are very strong and sturdy, and the guy lines are very easily adjusted with the attached sliders.

I love the added 'extras' of having pockets to hold tissues and flashlights, etc., and having a place to hang a lantern from the top. The adjustable front wall is also very practical and shows they've thought of everything (they even include a little patch kit as they understand that 'life' happens).

The tent is high enough for adults to stand straight up, and there's enough room inside for a table and chairs, if so desired.

All the equipment comes in a handy duffle bag, but unless you're an expert in origami, or have a lot of time, you won't easily get everything packed back in. However, it does fit if you carry the poles separately. This is just a minor detail and doesn't affect the usability, which is the important thing.

We are very pleased with our new tent and highly recommend it. We're already seeking out locations across the country to explore together next year.

Happy Camping!

Manufacturer's Description

Versatile tunnel style tent for up to 6 people. Large porch area or optional extension to living area, thanks to the movable front wall
The sleeping cabin is at the back of the tent and has a divider so that it can also be used as two smaller sleeping areas, as required
The robust workmanship of the tent with tear resistant material, taped seams and reinforced eyelets and tabs mean it is built to last
The HELSINKI poles are made of shatterproof fibreglass and are extremely sturdy and yet also flexible: a very welcome combination
Included are a handy carrying bag with assembly instructions, all necessary accessories (guy ropes, tent pegs etc.) and a repair kit
