Excerpt: I bought this tent in a sale probably two to three years ago. I wanted a tent I could either backpack or put in my car and take the three kids camping. I have done this on numerous occasions and have not been dissapointed. I have camped in fair weather and also, a month ago camped out in the UK when we had the bad windy/rainy weather. We were out in it for five days and it absolutely threw it down for two days and the wind was horrendous one night.

Excerpt: Not that thrilled with the tent. It's not a tent for life! Falls between two categories: slightly better than a cheap lightweight, but by no means a serious tent. Bought the Equinox 350 four years ago and have not used it for a couple of years, still favour my strong, reliable and very heavy 25-year-old brown canvas tent (needs car or trolley) . Bad points: Was really suprised when I found that I couldn't keep midges out on North Coast of Scotland/Ireland.

Excerpt: Have had the tent for a few years now, and have to say it has performed excellently every time it has been used. We have camped in the hills with three of us sharing the weight, which is its only drawback, but for its size and weight it performs admirably. Have had eight people sleeping in it once, in the huge porch too, but this just proves how versatile this tent is. Would recommend buying one to anyone.

Excerpt: A very good all-weather, windproof tent if you are willing to heft it up the mountainside; she's not light. But split between two or three, and you are flying. Space is actually ample enough for four inside, and the vestibule is huge: fine for cooking in, or just chilling out during bad UK weather. Have had it out in an exposed spot during a gale, and she held up fine: inner tension-band-system is great. Breathes well too. Good all-around, minus the weight.
