“ 3 Person Tent „
I have always looked at the Khyam range of tents with suspicion. Plastic poles that "snapped" into place didn't sound either study or designed to last. I was wrong!
The Khyam Freelander can be pitched in under a minute, although pegging out and guying does add another few minutes (five if you do in properly). You get a waterproof shelter very quickly though, and while it is possible to pitch it by yourself, a little help makes the job so much easier.
There is a single bedroom room that is designed for three people, but is really only comfortable with two. Two large windows and extra pole to convert the door into a sun shade means the tent can be cooled and ventilated quickly, making it useable on even the hottest summer's day. A manufactures designed "footprint" groundsheet protects the sleeping compartment and is useful in muddy and wet weather. I wouldn't use it for a long camp as I prefer the living groundsheets, but it is fine for a weekend, or when luggage space is limited.
The Khyam Freelander has a large porch / living area that is plenty big enough to stand up in. Whilst, the living area is just about big enough to fit a small stove and a table & chair in, it is best used as a relaxing area, with cooking and eating done outside (weather permitting).
Overall, I have been pleasantly surprised by the Khyam Freeland. It is perfect for my usage (several weekends from spring through to late autumn, with a two week long camp in the summer), it is easy to put up and doesn't cost too much (I paid less than £200). Khyam tents are well worth a look.
