The most noticeable thing about this tent is its unique and interesting round style. It is not quite a yurt, and not quite a teepee, but somewhere pleasant, warm and fuzzy in between. These tents actually come in different sizes but the model we looked at was big enough to sleep up to eight adults. It was perfect for those who are looking for something a little different, authentic and well made.
The Indiana tent range has a reputation for being durable and long-lasting. It is a lightweight tent that provides an easy answer to group camping and can provide you with some of the best camping experiences of your life if you use it properly. This is an adventure tent. This is for packing into the car and just driving, not knowing where you are going to stop to spend the night. This is the kind of tent you imagine that the great explorers of old ventured forth in… particularly if you buy the brown model.
This tent has steel poles and one solid centre column that makes erection easy and provides extra stability on those windy nights. It might sound a little heavy (and indeed, steel poles will be a little heavier than fibreglass ones) but the whole thing weighs in at just under 10 kg, rather surprisingly. It also offers about 2 and a half meters of head room ,which is ample for a six-foot something adult to stand up and move around in… or several adults at once, since this is an eight-man model.
This tent is made from a fast-drying polyester material that is waterproofed up to 3000 mm, which is good enough to keep you dry in anything except a Tsunami. It has a 4 meter diameter, which should give you an idea of how much room you have to move around in. The design is a traditional teepee style but adapted so that they don’t have a hole for the smoke to go out of in the middle; solving the problems of campers everywhere who thought they wanted a teepee but didn’t really, after-all.
It comes with taped and reinforced seams, fly screens and zip panels which can be lifted through the day, giving you more indoor and outdoor space. This is a truly eloquent tent that makes you want to get out and explore and that somewhat resembles a little house in its own right.
This tent features:
- Steel poles and pegs.
- Extra guy ropes, should you need them.
- Two and a half meters of headroom.
- 4 meters squared of living space.
- Waterproofing of 3000 mm.
- Reinforced seams along the hard wearing areas.
- Fast-drying polyester finish.
- Ventilation shafts.
- A cool design.
- Sleeps up to eight.
- Is available in different sizes.
Perhaps the best things about this tent are that it comes in different colours and different sizes, meaning you have loads of choice over what your tent will be like. It’s neat, lighter than you would think, easy to set up and pretty sturdy even in high winds. Not only that, but it is big enough and dry enough to keep your whole party happy.
If we were going to be doing more group camping in the future then this is definitely the tent we would invest in.
