    Retreat 280 5 Person Module Tent is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spacious yet still very easy to pitch We bought our 280 a couple of years ago now and have had many wonderful trips with it. It is spacious with all the features you expect and different options for organising your living quarters. Despite it's size it is quick and easy to pitch with a colour coded pole system.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy assembly and packs down easily too! Two camping trips (one where it rained heavily for 3 days) and it worked perfectly. no leaks and a little re-adjustmenting on the tension lines here and there made sure we had a great home from home. Getting the additional 'Configure wing was a great idea and only cost $60 in the sale. Meant that even in the rain we could eat and rest outside! Love it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plenty of space with all the bells and whistles We have now camped half a dozen times with our Retreat 280 as a family of four and have been so impressed. It is compact enough for husband to put up with minimal help as I sip wine and plenty of room inside for all the gear as well as all the neighbours kids. Love the sky light and the pockets next to the bed to house my ear plugs. Thanks Kathmandu

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Tent We bought this tent after having leaking trouble with Beyond tents.. 3 tents over a 2 year period. This tent works great and does not leak and has some great designs. The only design fault is the entrance points - The top of the door allows water to drain in when you open them because of the angle they are on. Still a good tent over all.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Functional, spacious and good build. This is a great tent. We're a family of four and it was very comfortable. Lots of little innovative design features, which I'm still discovering after my first use.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's nearly a great tent Most of the tent is designed well and functions as stated. However, having endured a very windy camping trip a couple of years ago, so windy that dust covered everything inside the partly mesh-walled tent, we were set on replacing it with a tent with an inner that could be sealed by solid walls, as well as mesh. We thought we had found it in this, but what you don't see in any of the photos is what the tent looks like without a fly. As it turns out, part of the roof of the middle room and most of the walls in the rear room (see photos) of the inner tent are just mesh, with no solid section to keep dust out - something that we couldn't find out until we had bought the tent. I'm also concerned about the longevity of the system that is used to attach the front door of the inner tent to the red section of the fly. As the red pole sits on the outside of the tent, the inner is suspended from the inside of the fly by a few elastic-strapped toggles. Surely, there is no way those few elastic straps will survive a reasonable length trip without being stretched, let alone keep their shape over years of use. I think it's a short-sighted design. The biggest disappointment by far, however, is the Configure Wing accessory. Another missing piece of information is the fact that the wing only attaches to the red door of the fly, and is not compatible with any other part of the tent. All that's good for is turning a 6m tent into a 9m tent which is much less versatile in smaller campsites. It also means you can't move the awning to suit the changing position of the sun or changes in wind position. I can understand its use for one of the smaller hiking tents, but it's just too small to be useful for bigger tents. All it requires is a few more eyelets around the tent to plug the Configure Wing into and it would have made the whole tent so much more practical. When you do hook it up to the red section, there is a large gap between wing and tent limiting its usefulness even further. Even if the Configure Wing could attach to other Configure Wings for extra roof space or walls, that would be super handy too. In its current form, it is disappointing and is only barely 'compatible' with this tent. Other small things: only 4 small storage pockets for gear is not particularly useful. The vent flaps could use a pocket to keep them out of the way. The storage net that hangs from the roof hangs under the mesh portion, so if you want to open the roof for ventilation, prepare for whatever is in that net to get baked by the sun. The little lips around each of the awnings that you see in the advertised photos and youtube videos don't seem to exist any more - our doors did not have any extra material to do that with. The 'darkened rooms and lightened living areas' blurb on the website can't be right as the main sleeping room has a roof made of mesh and isn't particularly dark.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great size, perfect for me and the kids Bought this last month and used for a 3 night camp trip, was perfect we had rain and the size of the tent meant plenty of room to store all the food and gear along with room to comfortably sleep. Although big not too hard to install, my son who is 11 was able to assist me.
