“ Manufacturer: Regatta / Type: Tent „
If you go to festivals, this is exactly what you need.
You and a friend should pitch in (no pun intended) and get this. Shop about for prices, as it costs very different prices everywhere you go.
Lugging this thing about is a little embarrassing at first, as wearing it like a backpack makes you look like a giant turtle, which can be fun if you've already started drinking, but it makes up for it's stupid look with simplicity and how light it is.
All you do is take it out of the case and throw it out, and your tent is up, while everyone else is putting sticks through material and probably forgetting pieces. Just remember the pegs, or that thing is flying away.
It's quite small, so it is only to throw yourself in and sleep in. It definitely isn't to go on camping holidays in.
It's just as easy to put away, just a quick twist and you can shove it back in the bag. It takes around 30 seconds to pack it away.
The additional items are just as simple, but I'd recommend buying your sleeping bag separately, as the ones that come with this aren't very comfortable.
My daughter announced that she really wanted to go camping consulting the diary unbelievably I couldn't find any space in which we could manage a camping trip however after chatting with my Brother about summer holidays he reminded me of how our Dad would pitch the tent at the beginning of the holidays and we would sleep in the garden for pretty much the whole of the holidays and what happy days they were! We were heading to stay with family and so we decided we could combine the little ones desire to camp with this visit.
I remember tents with lots of poles that seemed to take forever to put up not so with this particular tent it comes in a round bag that is flat and so takes minimal room in the car and you open the bag and out pops the tent it is literally a 5 minute job and that includes blowing up the air bed!
This little tent is double lined preventing moisture getting in and yes it was very comfortable apart from their being 4 of us in the tent! I would say it is plenty big enough for two adults or one adult and two children.
Cost and stockist:
Right at the moment is the best time to get a tent we purchased from Argos and paid a measly £17.49 the previous price being £49.99! www.argos.co.uk.
We had a fabulous weekend tent experience and I would recommend this for a couple of nights if looking for a week long experience I personally would want more space but right know at the price it is you really cannot go wrong a absolute steal.
