Small tent!

Post by AngelaD »

Hi, would be grateful for any opinions on the following:

I'm looking to buy a very small tent, just for my and two small kids so we can still go to events if OH is working. Has to be light enough so I can shove it on the roof of the car, and also so I can put it up by myself if needed. I've found this type of tent which would be ideal but I'm not sure how authentic this is:

Would this do? Our groups target era is 1360 or thereabouts. What do you reckon?


Thank you

Has anyone ordered from them?
We have some new people in our group looking for a tent and they look good value.

Yes tents look very good value. I don't know of anyone who has ordered tents from them, but have heard people who have ordered other stuff and all was ok?

Thanks for the pictures :thumbup:
