Awesome! One of a kind!
Stylish, lighting, no sweaty mornings & easy build
Awkward shape/size when packed, keeping it white

Brilliant tent. After searching the internet for countless hours, I stumbled across this cool looking tent and thought I would give it a go. With the great spec, there was nothing to lose and when it arrived I wasn't disappointed. The built in lights are brilliant and ended up relying on them more than I imagined (take spare batteries! 4x AA). The 'Fresh' keeps the tent well ventilated and makes for a pleasant morning; No more waking up in a sweaty condensation riddled mess! Ample storage pockets on each side of the living area were very useful. Although the groundsheet is separate, the bedroom has a sown in groundsheet which in turn gives you double ground protection. Also, by laying out the groundsheet first, you have a good idea of the space needed meaning you can locate/position the tent very easily before build to save you having to drag the whole tent around the camp site.
The YouTube videos are very helpful! I would recommend building it and putting it away a couple of times at home first though, just to get use to the process. The colour coordinated clips and straps make it even easier. As a backup, I downloaded the YouTube video to my phone so I could use it as a reference when building (I downloaded it in case I had no data signal on the camp site.) When packed, as you can see from the pictures, it's a large circle, which is ok when carrying on your back, perfect in fact using the straps! however when trying to fit it into my VW Polo's boot, it didn't fit so had to go on the back seat. This was fine for me as we didn't have a car full, so best checking the packed size first. Unfortunately, I only had 3 months use out of it because of a house fire, where it was destroyed. I'm now trying to purchasing it again but proving a very difficult task.
Great at first
keeps cool when hot, sewn in lights.
Not good when rains, shape changed on second use

used for 2 to 8 weeks During first use, this tent was great in hot weather. Need 2 people to put up but relatively easy and stress free. The size is great and the living area is large too. During the second use on another camping trip, it rained all night and I found that rain was collecting in certain places and putting strain on the tent, I had to push it up on the inside in order to clear the rain puddles. Also, the shape of the tent changed slightly upon the second use causing the area above the head on the inside of tent to lower, so we had to switch our sleeping bags around to sleep with head near door of tent.
Quick to put up, Airy, Waterproof, Easy to Clean
Cumbersome to Carry

Had this tent for a while and its been on 5 outings
First thing learn how to set it up and pack it up before you go anywhere with it.
1st outing Good old Glastonbury. Bit of a hassle to carry in the crowds. However on set up it was literally done in seconds. Tent worked really well and stood up to what was literally thrown at it. Cleaned off the mud easily. A slight problem with the bag as it broke. Decathlon replaced it without hassle.
2nd outing a weekend in Suffolk in a camp site. The worst thunder and rain I've ever seen had me retreating to the pub. Expecting the worst on return, there was no water anywhere in the tent despite the shoe deep flood all around the outside of it. I watched it in the winds and the rain and it just took whatever was thrown at it. At one point I thought it had been blown completely flat but it just stood right up again. Slight issue with the inner tent zip. Good old Decathlon sorted it without any quibble.
3rd outing Womad Festival Malmesbury Wilts. Really sunny weekend and the airflow sides meant that you could lie in til 11 am while everyone else was up and sweating by half 8. Great tent easy to set up and pack down once you've got the hang of it and the lights are an excellent extra.
4th outing Naxos Greece yep. Crazy!!!! booked it in as sports equipment with the cheapies bought it a gong bag (as a flight bag) 100cm one does the trick, strapped it to my back pack frame and flew the thing to Greece. Tent was perfect, a bit of a monster to carry round but with all the buses and taxis available I didn't have to walk far ever. Only across a few port sides getting onto ferries. Airflow system worked well. Had the roof open to the stars. Worked well. Probably a bit too much too carry if i'm honest. (Learning curve)
5th outing Exmouth Devon again worked perfectly well, was a bit cooler but the inner tent with the airflow pulled in and zipped down retains the heat quite well. Others very impressed how quickly this can be set up.
As the inner tent is already in place you only have to put the ground sheet down then the tent goes over the top of it. If it is raining you can get the tent up and shelter in a few minutes, absolutely great in this situation. Make sure you have done a few practice runs though.
Great for warm-weather camping
Opening roof, cool, dark, quick, reading lights
Groundsheet isn't sewn in
Barney (United Kingdom)
used for 2 to 8 weeks The separate groundsheet means heavy rain causing standing water on the ground would flood in, so we use this for summer camping only - but it's fantastic for that! The opening roof is great in the mornings when it warms up, and the white outer stops the greenhouse effect whilst the black liner keeps it dark inside. The lights are a great touch and it's quick and easy to put up and take down.
WOW What a tent
Needs a few more pegs & size when packed

What can i say....WOW, what a tent.
We brought this from the Lakeside Store after going a buy a cheaper one but saw there "Pop Up" tents being shown to another customer and was then hooked.
First of all this tent is so easy to put up and take down even by 1 person.
Once up you will not be disappointed due to the size of the tent, the looks and the LED lights.
The tent will hold 2 x 120 Quechua air beds with space either side and down the middle so making this tent ideal for Families and Couples alike.
I have taken this away on 2 Scout Camps and has stood up to the Great British weather- Raining hard and the end of a Hurricane(40-50 MPH winds)-we had 2 other tents with broken poles.
The LED lights on this are fantastic so much so that i did not use another torch whist in the tent.
You may also be the envy of the site so be prepared to answer question and to show off your tent to other campers.
The Thermal insulation on this tent is superb even on a hot day in August.
Another great feature/idea is the "Sun Roof", never had one before and to be honest don't think i will ever use it in the UK but you never know.
If you have all of the "wings" undone for the air flow then this tent looks like its flying.
One little niggle for me is the size of it when its packed away in its bag, will not fit through the loft hatch but will live with it because its such a great tent.
A little hint, if you buy this and you carry it by the "ruck sack" straps make sure no one has a camera, as you will end on Facebook looking like a turtle!!! you have been warned.
The very spacious 2.25m long by 2.80m wide bedroom can fit 2 2 sleepin'bed camp comfort beds with their headrests raised.
Mini-living area with 1.57m max headroom. Floor contact surface: 1.70m by 2.30m min and 2.80m max. 4 adults can easily be seated around a table with space for their belongings. Large storage bag.
"Warm white" LED bulbs. Battery case (4 x LR6/AA supplied). Around 7.5 hours of battery life in constant use.
Please note: a significant amount of UV rays can enter through a single open door.
