Regatta 4 Man Family Tent Review
Needing a new camping tent for an upcoming trip for our small family of four, we did plenty of research online. Since we were going to be camping in an area that we are not as familiar with the climate, we needed to take everything into consideration.
After going through a number of tents from a several brands, we decided on the Regatta 4 Man Family Tent. This tent offers our family plenty of benefits we were really looking for at a great price (£64.99), after contacting Argos they agreed to let us have the tent for free in exchange for a review, happy days.
Regatta 4 Man Family Tent
The Regatta 4 Man Family Tent offers a family many features that not all tents have. One of those important features is the two separate rooms; sleeping and family rooms. The sleeping compartment is completely separated from the main cabin by a fully zippered door. For extra airflow on those warm summer nights there is screened window that can be opened.
The main cabin is designed in a domed shape, which gives it a high center point allowing for more ceiling clearance. It has a large zippered door, with mosquito netting and mesh windows for plenty of air circulation. The large door of the main cabin doubles as a awning that is held up by using two extra poles in the package.
Construction and the materials are key
The key to any tent is material that goes into making the tent, this includes the shell and poles. The Regatta 4 Man Family Tent features a two layer shell designed to prevent condensation from collecting on the inside of the tent. The tent material is double layer of polyester taffeta, which is both strong and water resistant. The poles are all made of a highly flexible and yet very strong fiberglass material.
Pitching the tent
The unique design of the Regatta 4 Man Tent with its dome style main cabin and color coding on each of the poles makes pitching the tent very quick and easy. According to documentation, it should only take 10 minutes to unpack and pitch it although it did take us a little longer.
My Final Thoughts
The ease of pitching it really sets the tone for the entire camping trip. Having the sleeping and main cabin completely separate is a great feature. This means that you can put your kids down to sleep and you can have a little peace and quiet after a long day of fun and excitement or it would be great if you had a dog.
The mosquito netting and large windows gives you plenty of airflow and at the same time the extra protection from all the flying and creepy crawlies.
