    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 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A brilliant tent - so enjoyable to use We bought this tent a few months ago now and have been away four times with it, each time enjoying it just that little bit more. It's extremely easy to put up (admittedly our first time was made slightly harder by being in the pitch dark in the middle of the bush) and take down and we enjoy discovering new things and features about it every time. It's also very practical with hooks, pockets, screens, vents, doors windows etc. in the most convenient locations. It does get a tad hot in the open sun but I would imagine any tent would. Having said this, its practicality allows you to achieve varying degrees of cross ventilation, through a combination of screens, doors, vents etc. Even though we're just a couple, there's ample room for our belongings. When it gets too cold of an evening, we just take the table and chairs indoors, we just love the spaciousness. It's also clearly very well built and will I'm sure withstand the test of time if looked after correctly. Indeed, part of the reason for getting this tent was to 'future-proof' once the little bubbas are on the scene! The awning is a lovely touch as well providing just enough cover for the two of us with a table and chairs. The only feedback we would give is that understandably, it’s quite a heavy tent requiring at times two people to move to and from the car for example when bagged. It would be great to see the next generation come with wheels on the bag, almost like a mini suitcase. Additionally, given there are so many cool features to the tent, it would also be useful to understand what some of these are. For example, there are multiple areas inside the tent featuring a lightbulb and magnetic symbol, and we’ve no idea what this is for!!! Probably us, but it would be cool for some of these features to be expanded upon, perhaps in the already useful instruction label attached to the inside of the carry case. We can't wait to take it on more adventures with more people and can only thank Kathmandu for providing a product that has allowed us to explore this beautiful country in such style and convenience.
