Popup Tents
#1
Had a search and couldnt find another thread about this.

Looking at popup tents for the coming enduro season as I really cant be a**ed with pitching a full tent each time and also means my 'proper' tent wont get ruined by tons of mud and crap.

Any suggestions? Ive had my eye taken by the Gelert QuickPitch DS4 for around £80 but read some interesting reviews about the fibreglass poles snapping when putting it away. Not what I would like to experience.

Ideally would want a 4 man just for the extra space it would offer and on the off chance that the missus might come to a few event too and she likes a bit of room! Looking to up to about £80ish but would go to £100 if it was worth the money.

Cheers all

Only because he bought it that day, and didnt try it.

Now Ive seen the videos, I can do it straight away - its easy when you know how.

I think MrNut also has one.

I got mine SH from Ebay - was advertised at the "air" model, but it wasnt - so had a row with the seller.  Doesnt matter.

That is awesome. The only issue is that I have to drink beer whilst putting up a tent so I wouldnt be able to drink as much if it went up that quick.

I guess I would still have the 7 hours of swearing hammering weak bendy pegs into solid ground

MrHugger in the distance with my behemoth tent to the left of him!

I bought the Quechua PURELY from the team effort needed to take that b@stard down! - never again!
