Coleman or Sportiva Tent

Postby flyboy » Mon Jan 02, 2006 10:14 pm

I am looking to buy my first tent and am considering buying either a Coleman or Sportiva brand. Does anyone particularly recommend or not recommend either of these brands.

Thanks.

Mate we have a sportiva and find it is just perfect.
Takes aprox 20 minutes to put up in no particlar rush.
Wife and i put it up in the rain once took 7.5minutes.
Only trouble we had was the bag is a litle small, easy fixed just got a bigger bag.
ask the shop if you can have a go at puting it up and down in the shop (dome tents dont need pegs in the shop)
a good idea with these tents is to get a piece of shade cloth to put underneath it protects the floor a bit and helps keep the dirt out.
Happy camping
