Pros: good for kids playhouse/day tent, light & easy to erect, eyecatching design & neon guyropes, easy to put down (once you know how)
Cons: dodgy zipper, very sweaty to sleep in, not very waterproof
"Bought this tent for a two night festival in July. Having previously bought a one man pop-up from another retailer and being very pleased with that we thought this would be a good buy. We were very happy at first, its very light, goes up easily and has neon guy ropes to avoid tripping. There was just enough space for myself and my 6'2 partner and a bag, and while the zip seemed a bit sticky and kept trying to pull in the fabric, it all seemed fine. The trouble came the next morning when we both woke up soaking wet. It had been a hot night and obviously being a small tent with little ventilation the condensation had built and collected and was dripping on us both and all our bags. Yuck. So we tried to get out...for 45 minutes. The zip was stuck so fast that by the time it was undone it had chewed up almost half of the door and had to be torn. If anybodys seen the film with Ace Ventura trying to climb out of the mechanical Rhino they'll have a similar idea to what we both looked like trying to get out. Sweaty and tired, we went to find a bit of tarpaulin and some rope to fashion a new door for our second nights stay, luckily we'd both been Scouts so there was no problem there, but not what you expect to be doing when you've got a brand new tent. We took it back to the store first thing Monday and the girl was kind enough to refund us and said it had happened to someone else too, so no hard feelings Halfords! :)"
