Excellent performance in testing weather conditions

I intended to have a pleasant night wild camping in the Cheviots just before the August Bank Holiday and had carefully monitored the weather forecast on several sites before venturing out. However the forecast and the actual weather turned out to be very different. Basically I encountered 16 hours of rain and wind from about force 4 to 7. Needless to say the rain managed to get inside both my “waterproofs “ (jacket and trousers).
However the performance of my tent was exemplary. I managed to get it pitched in approximately 5 minutes ( I had practised in the garden beforehand). I used approximately half the pegs supplied and the other half were bigger titanium replacement ones to provide better grip in the peat. I cannot say I enjoyed a great nights sleep with the wind howling and the rain beating against the fly which was being pushed in to contact with the inner tent. Also there was a noticeable “breeze” through the tent thanks to the force of the wind (but being August it was not particularly cool).
To be honest I was not sure whether the tent would survive if the conditions persisted, and I had a bivy bag clipped to my sleeping bag. However, the tent emerged unscathed and so did the dogs and me with the inside remaining completely dry.
Given the weight and pack size I regard this as a first class 3 season hiking tent and given the quality of the materials and construction I believe it is excellent value for money.

Great little tent

Used this a couple of times as a wild camping tent. Pitches quickly and hassle free. Packs up easily even in high winds. Pitched it in the Lakes in high winds tail into the wind and limited held up well.

For the pack weight it’s roomy enough for two 6 foot guys at a push and makes for a roomy single man tent. Porch is big enough for two rucksacks but a bit tight.
