  • Do you want to use the tent again?
  • Will you be sharing a tent with anyone?
  • Will you need to carry the tent easily on your own?

  • Those FieldCandy tents look fab and I love the canvas bell tent. We very nearly got one before we bought Tin Box.

    • Your Tin Box is much less weather dependant, so good choice! The FieldCandy tents are super quality and I love all the quirky designs! 🙂

  • festival lover

    I love funky Teepee tents, and the best i have found is on myfestivaltent.co.uk which isn’t on your list. You even can get it delivered to the festival your attending. Cool.

    Fieldcandy tents look really good thanks for the tent review. I am a huge fan of Coleman tents and Ozark Trail which are missing from this review and can be found http://www.whatcampingtent.com/family-tents/ozark-trail-tent-reviews-affordable-family-tents/. Cheers
