richardjamesbutler's review of Karrimor Beta Tent

“Still going strong after 5 years”

★★★★★

written by richardjamesbutler on 26/07/2014

Bought my Karrimor Beta tent second hand 5 years ago and still all in order with no damages. I guess its seen around 20 nights camping in all - mostly via canoe but some backpacking and a little car camping.
Tighter than the floor space would suggest due to the sloping sides but there is plenty of space in the sides for equipment.
The tent must go up inner first unlike what some websites suggest. The tent is pretty much self supporting which is great for camping on rock shelves (kayaking in Sweden) though best if the ventilation guys can be pegged out.
Loose threads on the inner tent look cheap but nothing has happened in 5 years.
Pockets in both ends, sides and roof. Great for watching a movie on the phone.
Poles seem good quality alloy.
Outer door can be awkward to unzip without catching the zip cover in the zip itself if your in a hurry (like when its raining) but is not a real problem.
Vents can be opened or closed both inner and outer - some condensation on the outer with cold wet weather but didn't disturb the inner tent.
Weight of 3 kg is not great but you can save by omitting most of the pegs and not really too much to carry between two.
Finally - has never given problems in the rain at all despite some real downpours.

  • 2 fine for couples but two large guys fit but you'd better be friendly!
