the casing around one of the poles snapped on my 4.1 when were were folding it up the other weekend and we are now without weekend tent. I can't manage our bigger one myself, so need something light and easy to put up. Really bummed about the 4.1 as even though it is under warranty and Decathlon are happy to honour it, they don't sell it any more so it's money back or find a new tent. It ticked all my boxes though, and I'd made bespoke groundsheet and carpets to fit, so really sad to be loosing it.
Things I loved about it were: *Up and down in under 10 minutes *Tall enough for walking around in the living room (we only sleep in the bedrooms so not fussed about height in there) *a few storage pockets *1 huge bedroom so me, DH and two <5 DSs were all in a row (this isn't essential, but I did like having the boys near me) *Was only £99 (I can spend more, I just really liked that I didn't have to ;) )
Things that weren't so great *More windows would've been nice *SIG would be my preference *Not breaking would also have been nice
So what else can you guys recommend that I can get up and down in a flash and doesn't weigh 20 kgs. Are there any other brands that do pop-ups that you can stand in?
I got a bargain Gelert atlantis 3 last week, was reduced to 34.99. Says 3 man but could accommodate 2 adults and 2 younger kids no problem. Its not a pop up tent but has an all in 1 pitching system and I had it up single handed in 20 minutes. I am really pleased with it.
