Rated 4 out of 5 by from Motorcycle road trip tent Me and my riding mate both bought Bora 2 tents for a round Australia motorcycle ride. Both tents worked well and were erected, slept in and packed up 42 nights in the Outback and coastal Australia with no dramas. Single occupancy left plenty of space for our riding gear. Floor has worn thin in a couple of places from using a camping stretcher - fixed with duct tape. Still going strong after 4 years of regular use.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Basic Very basic tent for the price, no added features like inside pockets etc. Also not very roomie for two people and gear.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Broken Poles Me and my partner bought this tent last year and we loved it at first. However, one of the doors was sewn too tightly which resulted in the fabric being pulled apart. A month later, the pole cracked and we took it in and got it replaced free of charge. However, a month later the pole snapped again in the same place. We repaired it with the repair kit, then a few weeks later on a windy night the pole completely snapped. We are very disappointed with this product and there is clearly a common fault with the poles.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Overall great tent but leaked. We have used this tent multiple times for over night trips and multiday hikes. It's very solid when it is pitched. The rain runs straight off the fly. Sturdy in the wind. Easy to pitch. Suitable for 2 people, however a little more space would be ideal but its cosy. We placed our bags outside with pack covers on as no space inside the tent. Only down fall it leaked on us twice. Second time my bed got quite wet but thankfully I went to bed when I did and caught it before it got worse, patched with the material that came with the tent. Had to use tape from our first aid kit to repair it as it came with nothing. Unfortunately we got unlucky and lost faith in the product. With more multiday hikes coming up, we couldn't risk it happening a 3rd time. Hopefully this helps someone, havent wrote to turn people off this tent because it is a good size and weight but this was our experience :) Happy shopping!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Great tent, light weight, easy to erect and pull down. Only downside is the pegs are a little soft, head broke off one first time I used it and two others bent in only moderately hard ground so be careful to put even downward pressure on when setting the pegs.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from great for one person in tropical climate Not so good though for two persons. Not enough space for two + gear. Stable in high wind, as long as you manage to pitch it, with the complicated outer fly to be fastened to the poles. I suspect the chosen material will wear out soon after pitching and tearing down the tent a couple of times. Positioning the fly in the right place isn't intuitive and can lead to a wet inner if if you have to pitch the tent in rain and become confused about how to place the fly correctly. The inner tent has super ventilation. The tent is pretty good for direct sun and hot days (bright colour of material), compared to others. It has two doors which is super for using it during daytime as a rain shelter. However, at a regular NZ night in early summer, the inner tent doesn't provide enough shelter from dropping temperatures and dampness, as you can not zip-close the huge lower ventilation windows or the upper ones. A very important detail to be aware of! I bought this tent in Whangarei where it was not pitched in store and staff did not have a clue about the detailed ventilation features of the Bora. The tent is probably super in tropical climate, not in damp and chilly climate. It is not particular leight weight but packs considerably smaller than the Retreat tents.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spacious and sturdy After my old 25 year old tent started to fall apart I was after something slightly bigger but just as easy to set up. Colour coding the poles is great. Has enough head space to avoid weird gymnastics while dressing (I'm an average height female). Sturdy in the wind and rain. I reused my old tent's packing bag as I'm not a fan of compression packs but that's just me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tent I have used it for a couple days now and couldn't be happier, even on a rainy night it kept us dry and safe. The space its just enough for 2 people
