The Tent

The Peridot Air Tent is a 3 berth dome tent and is unique in that it has no poles to erect but relies on rigid air tubes to hold the tent up. The tent is supplied with a double action hand air pump to inflate the tent and erecting the tent is simplicity itself. The tent comes with all the expected refinements in a modern day tent and is extremely stable in adverse weather conditions. Unlike a tent using tent poles to hold it up, if the wind gets that strong and the tent collapses, this one just bounces back up, unlike the poled one which more than likely require a pole or two replacing. There is adequate storage space at the front of the tent for storing your wet gear and is an ideal tent for those who want a very quick erect tent for those weekends away. The tent is made to a very high specification (see below) and is designed to ensure comfort and durability.

 Erection / Pitching

This has to be one of the easiest and quickest tents to erect on the market today. Locate the inner tent, connect hand pump to valve and inflate, the tent will be erect in about one minute. Secure flysheet to the inner tent by the very large Velcro pads and peg down, That’s it, job done, sit back and enjoy that chilled glass of chardonnay or other fruit based drink and admire your handy work. The whole tent is up and fully pegged down in less than five minutes. What more can we say.

 

Pros and Cons

Cons: 

Very quick to erect

Well ventilated

Stable

Well priced

 

 

The Cost
Expect to pay around £80 for this seasons model

 

The Verdict

This has to be one of the best tents in its class, if you are after a small dome tent that is easy and quick to erect, look no further. To say we were not impressed is an understatement; this is a great tent with more than enough room for this class of tent with the addition of this very quick erection system and very good quality components. The only drawback is the weight and pack size would probably rule it out of the back packing market but otherwise this is a winner.
