5 Reviews of the Perpignan 6 Polycotton

By: SueEdwards  Reason: I own(ed) one  Made in: 2010   Rating: 

Just returned from our first outing with this tent. Fantastic value for money! Paid 250 for this new including footprint and carpet. Tent housed 2 adults and 2 teenagers without a problem. Pods big enough for 4 beds, bags for clothes, etc. Living area plenty large enough for 4 chairs, kitchen, assorted equipment and still wasn't falling over each others feet. The porch at the front is a nice touch. Windows let in loads of light giving the tent a great feel during the daytime. We found this very easy to pitch, taking approx 40 minutes for two adults including all pegging down, pods, carpet etc. Equally easy to take down and pack away. The pole bag is very heavy and have to resort to husband lifting it as too heavy for me. Could be easily rectified by split poles into two bags though.

The tent stood up incredibly well in absolutely torrential rain, with no leaks anywhere. We also had a night of gale force winds, and whilst it was very noisy inside during the winds, the guy ropes held the tent down securely.

All in all this is an incredibly good value for money tent, spacious enough for a growing family of four. Would recommend without hesitation.

The tent was purchased new this summer. It was chosen because of the size of the living area and material, fed up with noisy fly sheets in the wind and no space. I was looking at a second hand Outwell Bearlake 6 but for the price of this package no contest for me. I may have got a slightly better tent with the Outwell but worth another 500 for a second hand one? I will let Bearlake owners comment on that.

I put it up in the garden for a trial run and to weather. First thoughts were heavy but easy to get up. After a good day or two wind and rain all was fine.

A wet trip to Cornwall, there it coped well with the rain, lots of rain, there were a few drips inside but I think a lot of this may have been condensation; we did cook inside and five people inside breathing. It was quiet in the wind. There was enough space for two big people and three little people. (Little uns 3,10,12)

Second trip to W.Wales, a coastal pitch with plenty of wind, really difficult to pitch in the wind, and impossible to get the sheet stable until it dropped. (mmm would the Bearlake have been better? No not 500 better). The porch at the front had to be rolled in to stop it acting as a sail. Once up coped well with the ensuing Atlantic wind, 30-40mph though the front which was facing the wind did flap. Colour coded plastic bits fall off the poles for a past time, but I soon realised the only pole that is different and needs identifying is the front one. One of the spring loaded poles came apart but a pair pointy pliers soon pushed the clip back in place.

Over all very happy with the package for the price.

Thus far I've only to set this tent up to test it (arrived yesterday, going away in three days), haven't actually camped in it yet, but since these are currently on offer at Somerset Camping for 350 delivered with free footprint GS and carpet I thought I'd give my first impressions.

So, first impressions: heavy! It must be 25 years since we had the old family frame tent and I'd forgotten how much 'proper' material can weigh, so be warned: the canvas alone weighs about 27kg. Poles are steel and also about 27kg, compared with about 27kg for a whole polyester tent.

When we took the poles out there was one that had not been sprung together; we managed to fix it, but it still dampened our enthusiasm a little.

All the poles are colour-coded to match their sleeves as standard, some of them were a little tight to put together but not a big problem. We were taking our time and sussing out the best way to erect it and took about an hour, but I reckon it could go up in less than 30 minutes with a little practice.

On to the fabric: I don't have an Outwell or other premium tent to compare it to but it seemed nice enough, stitching is pretty accurate and it all looked straight when up. Zips are heavy duty, it's got a SIG (with 'drawbridge' bits on the side doors - not sure how I feel about these: while I don't like tripping over bathtub groundsheets, if I ever needed them for their flood protection I might be a little annoyed if water got in).

Inside it has two bedrooms, one of 280cm and one of 140cm, a zipped electric hookup entry point and ceiling light hook, a 'sheet' with toggle connectors to attach to ceiling when cold, only thing missing are 'tidies':- pockets to put stuff.

At the front of the tent there is a porch/sunshade over the front door (which is vertical so shouldn't let rain in), with picture windows either side of the door just like a proper frame tent; then on each side of the tent there is another door, for which there are supplied poles to turn these into awnings as well. There are ventilation slots for the bedrooms on the sides and two larger ventilation points on the back.

All in all, it seems a spacious, (mostly) well-made tent in quality material, I would've liked some storage pockets, but most of the wall space is taken up by windows and doors. Obviously I can't comment on its waterproofing or day to day living but I think it'll be just fine. I would happily give it 10 stars apart from the pole problem, the colour-coded ends came off some of them too.

This is the first big tent we've owned but due to an expanding family two kids, a three year old and a nine month old, this makes perfect sense.

So far we've had one trial run over a weekend which had heavy showers and the tent coped really well. I could hear the rain but was nice, cosy and dry. There was some damp in the bedroom, but that was only because the tent was so stable I didn't peg it all out properly. Lesson learnt!

The tent is very heavy and does need two to erect, but you get plenty of room with the two bedrooms and a decent lounge area with more than enough room for 4 chairs a table and a kitchen table

All in all a very good tent and can't wait to see what its like for a fortnight in France next month.

Wanted a polycotton tent for 2 adults and 2 children to have separate rooms. We sleep one child in the two birth and the 4 birth part is split by a dividing curtain so one child slept one side and we slept the other.

This meant we all had room in the inner tents to stand up and get dressed next to our inflatable beds. (double and single in 4 birth and single in 2 birth) Plus room for clothes in small bag in inner tents.

Inner tents have zip open windows with fly netting to air them fully in day time without letting in bugs.

Rear of tent has air vents too that need shutting at night if chilly as cold air comes straight into inner tent through fly net window. Once shut fine though.

Living space great - room for table and chairs and oven table. Zip up bit to let electric in. We don't use the side doors so kept zipped up.

Front door vertical so no rain in when opened. Shelter on out side great for cooking under out of wind.

Used footprint - bit large as extended into porch canopy so had to fold under and rain would have run straight under tent. Will cut off next trip and use as a mat in the canopy instead.

Takes two to pitch and there is a knack to getting the pole pins in but sits quite well when pitched. Quite heavy if don't do one pole set at a time! Rear a bit saggy at bottom but played around inside and with poles and sorted out ok. Noticed other tunnel tents similar.

Had no water to mention inside having weathered first in the garden. Only very little condensation. Felt quite cold at night but was june and clear skies. Guy ropes everywhere! will look at reorganising near doorway as a bit of an obstacle course!

Very quick to take down. Love the polycotton feel and husband doesn't get static hair like in the other kind of tents. He is 6 foot 3 and had loads of standing room inside across the whole width as poles gently curve over top the straight down at sides. (didn't bother with the ceiling lining as felt droopy and annoying).

Hook for light at the top - great!

All window curtain over for privacy if needed and not fussy. Just functional. Plus windows have fly nets if want (but doors don't)

Pole bag heavy and as always supplied pegs useless!

Are we pleased with our new tent? yes. We needed another bedroom (had a cabanon chambord 5 berth) and this did the job just fine without the huge price tag of some other polycotton tents (got for 399 in Somerset camping)

Plus sewn in ground sheet really reduced the mess and critters inside!
