Tent Buying Guide

DOME TENT

The dome tent is one of the post popular types to pick. Featuring a recognisable curved pole structure and a rectangular base, these tents usually have good headroom and some also feature a porch for you to store your gear. These tents are fairly easy to put up and take down, although they tend to struggle in strong winds they can still stand up against fairly harsh conditions.

Our Kivu Dome tents use two crossed poles for a sturdy construction, and feature a inner section and a removable second sheet. This makes them versatile and great for fairly warm camping trips too, as the outer layer can be removed for an airier experience.

KEY FEATURES

  • 10 minute pitch time
  • Colour-coded poles for pitching ease
  • Bright guy lines for extra visibility
  • Spacious porch for storage

 

TUNNEL TENTS

If you’re looking for a family friendly tent, that’s got a great amount of space and headroom then the Tunnel Tent might be the best choice for you. These tents feature curved poles, making a tunnel structure and are fairly straightforward to put up. They tend to be a bit heavier so are more suited to campsite campers.

Our Vanern Tunnel tents use an ‘outer pitch’ construction. This means that the outer flysheet goes up first, followed by the room compartment. This is really handy for when you’re pitching in the rain! These tents have a large communal area with a canopy, lots of windows and a sectioned off sleeping area.

KEY FEATURES

  • 10 minute pitching time
  • Darkened bedroom
  • Bright guy lines for extra visibility
  • Large porch area for living space and storage

 

 

POP-UP-TENTS

The Pop-Up tent is one of the most popular tent types around. Designed to pop up for easy and quick pitching and packing time, these tents are the perfect choice for inexperienced campers. They usually come packed in a round bag and are lightweight and easy to carry.

  • 2 second pitching time
