Dometic designs its poled tents to be easy to assemble and disassemble, strong against the elements, and comfortable for friends and family. Some, such as the Wittering, even come with a carpet and footprint. It's fantastic for families experiencing camping for the first time and is available in four-person or six-person sizes. When pitched , the tent measures 220 cm at its apex, meaning even the tallest family members can stand inside.
For large groups or families, there is the Watergate, which sleeps eight. It's also tall in the middle at 205 cm, so the whole family can stand up inside the tent. Usefully , this tent comes with a wet weather entrance that keeps out the inclement weather when entering the interior living space of the tent.
The Mersea 4 also accommodates four people and is a fantastic festival tent. Its compact pack size makes it perfect for hitting the trail or camping in the garden. It's great for concerts, festivals, and other outdoor gatherings.
All our poled tents come with Dynaflex fiberglass poles, Weathershield polyester material, and adjustable pegging points. They are durable and comfortable products from a company with years of experience in designing and manufacturing the highest quality poled tents.
Dynaflex is the name brand of the fiberglass tent poles we use. Fiberglass is much lighter than steel and is far easier to handle. You might need steel poles at Camp Four on Everest while waiting to summit in winds gusting to 130 kph, but fiberglass will do nicely for most family camping excursions. Fiberglass flexes more than steel, so it stretches to fit the frame of the tent. Because tents with fiberglass frames are as light as they are, it's imperative to use all of the pegs and guy ropes no matter how calm the weather. You don't want to have to go chasing your tent down the trail in a brisk breeze!
That depends on the tent in question. The larger luxury tents weigh upward of 35 kg while the festival tents weigh only 8 kg. Remember, the lightness of the tent doesn't have anything to do with its strength or quality. They're designed to be lightweight, easy to transport and simple to pitch.
