We've just used this tent for the first time and were very impressed. We needed a tent with 2 bedrooms so that our son could have some privacy as well as ourselves. The tent went up really easily and withstood the battering it got from wind and rain in the middle of our holiday. It also dried out really quickly afterwards.
I also like the way you can open the windows part way so that you get light into the tent but it is still waterproof.
We had our first outing with our horizon 6 at Easter. This tent is fab. As there is only the two of us we only needed to use one bedroom compartment so there was a huge amount of living and storage space which is great for us as we don't exactly travel light when we go camping.
Our first night was extremely wet and blustery but having also purchased the canopy we were able to sit out till late and not get wet or blown away. The tent really did stand up well in the strong winds and never once felt like it was going to blow away or buckle in any way unlike the outwell tent we had previously.
The only problem we had was getting the tent back in the bag at the end of the holiday. It took us over half an hour and numerous attempts to fold it right. I suppose this will get easier with practice. All in all A fantastic tent and I would highly recommend it to anyone.
Love this tent! We camped at the beginning of May 2009 - withstood rain showers and wind without any problems. As others have said the bottom of the doors can be a bit drafty. We didn't even realise the tent had the option of a door at one end if you don't use one of the bedroom pods - this does tend to make the bedroom at that end a little colder but then it was a very cold night!
We had no problem repacking into the bag (and we're not experienced campers) - I wonder if they have made the bag a little larger for this year's model?
I do intend to buy the optional canopy or porch as rain will definitely get in through an open door without one.
And just in case anyone needs to know, it is possible to get a double and a single airbed in one pod, although there's no remaining floor space. Perfect size for a family of 4 but will fit 6 at a pinch!
Love this tent. Spent 3 days in the Lakes with it in very wet and windy (60mph gusts) conditions and it didn't let a drop of rain in. Poles flexed and tent buffeted, but never threatened to come down, unlike others on the site in different tents who vacated early. It was brilliant. First time we'd taken the tent out of the bag and only my 2nd time ever camping, but the tent was up and the kettle was on in just over an hour. Really easy to put up and take down. Good size and head height. Only two adults and a crazy spaniel as occupants, but absolutely loads of space. Could easily have had another couple of adults in there. Full size fitted ground sheet was great, but we also bought the Horizon 6 carpet and this certainly added a degree of 'luxury' and warmth so would recommend spending the extra £30 or so to get this.
We used our tent for the first time last year 2008, we were lucky with the weather as it was very hot, but the tent kept us cool inside. Easy to pitch and easy to put away. Will be using it again this year in August. Listening to all the reviews means we have no worries at all, fantastic tent excellent space and even a pretty colour
his is our 3rd tent and is the best one we have had. We have just returned from camping and typical British weather - it rained, we had thunder and lightening and strong winds - it didn't leak, fall down and was really easy to put up, take down and store back in the bag. The 2 sleeping compartments were a good size and left a good living area in the middle of the tent.
An excellent buy!
