I bought one on ebay a while back. I didnt think id win it but did, dont you hate that :grin:
Mine is only a single person one. Ive only used it a few times over summer. In winter i imagine it could get pretty cool as cold air would come under the fly and straight in. But in summer i used it without a fly and just had a tarp off the car and out to a tree. That way you get any breeze there is!

Hmm instant tents. Isn't it funny, that people go camping to slow down, relax, and get away from the rushed pace of life..... and then want a tent that assembles in 2-3 secs :lol:
Some of the funniest memories I've got from camping are from watching....err, i mean, helping, friends put up their 12 man, ~30kg tents :*** :mrgreen:

I tend to agree, especially when its fro 2 or 3 people and the alternative dome tent would take 8 minutes to put up!!!

I'm going camping to Queensland in November and me and the wife are swagging, but she also wants a mossie dome to sit around at night drinking playing cards etc in. I don't want to put up a tent, one of the reasons we got a swag was because it's simple to put up, I'll only take a mossie dome if it's up under a minute.
