“I am a Scout Leader and Quartermaster and four years...”

Written on: 23/02/2010

I am a Scout Leader and Quartermaster and four years ago we purchased 5 of these tents and they have proved to be a disappointment.

1) Build quality is poor especially when it comes to the Outer Zips, I have had three zips replaced under warranty by Lichfield (after forceful discussions), 8 poles have split and the Outer tears where the poles fit into the Ring & Pull.

2) The Ring & Pull system requires considerable strength and put too much strain on the components. Scouts under 14 cannot pitch these.

3) Functionality - they are not waterproof in Wind & Rain because the wind blows the outer on to the inner and the water just runs through.

I would only suggest using these during Summer and for careful personal use.

For our Scout Group I am going to spend approximately £100 per tent and probably purchase Coleman Phad X3.

It appears you get what you pay for, spend £50 and expect to replace the tent in 5 years.
