Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lasted the distance Have has this for 5 years now. Have used a few multi-day hikes as well as a number of long road trips and the odd weekend away. It has survived many rainy nights, strong winds and 2 intense storms. You do have to think about the direction you face the tent if in windy conditions. 5th year of ownership and have only just had 2 poles snap. But easy to buy replacement and swap out the damaged section. Highly recommend to anyone needing a great light weight tent. Also fits 2 adults and 2 kids under 3 easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little tent We love the features of this tent inparticular the storage pockets, air vents that can still be used while raining, & the design of the tent pegs. This tent was purchased for my husband to use with our son but I think the 4 of us (2 adults and 2 under 5's) could use it for a night away. The one thing that was unfortunate was our kids kept standing on the pegs and hurting their feet on them. We might have to look at covering them somehow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great light weight tent for the price Bought is last week to go hiking over Ester weekend to Motutapu Island. Weight is almost half in compare to retreat 80 and so easy to pitch, my 3.5 year old and teenager managed to put up tent in less then 20 min. Stood up strong in high wind and no leak during an hour of rain we had over the weekend on Motutapu Island. Great value for money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for camping Taken this camping a couple of times and been very happy with it. Lots of space, some very practical features like the internal storage pockets and double exits, easy to set up and pack, very stable. I haven't used it in challenging conditions, which is why I'm not giving it a 5.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good tent but I used my Boreas last weekend for the first time. Loved it. Really easy to set up & pack. However putting the tent in its sack proved to be challenging. I have tried it a few times but am struggling. Appreciate of Kathmandu can post a small video on how to do it. Thanks, s

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pole snapped without even touching it! I bought this tent for backpacking our way through New Zealands summer months. After a few weeks, along came some 'sun holes' in the fabric. No real bother, it didn't rain too much and they where only about 1mm X 1mm big. (Still bit of a bummer when its supposed to be a $600 4 season tent..ouch) Then one morning, the pole snapped! We where having our breakfast and heard a 'poing'... the silver pole completely snapped. Went into the Nelson branch and chatted to a lovely guy from the middlands who happily gave us store credit. We swapped it for the 2 man 'Bora'... alot smaller and now we have discovered that the inner sheet touches the outer quite obviously and worryingly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from so far great tent Tent has been awesome, only been erected in the back yard in Christchurch but has with stood rain and gusts. After three days of being in the rain, condensation formed and two wee puddles less 10cm squared formed on the floor of the tent. Looking forward to testing it out properly. (tent was tested in winter). Some of the stitching looks as though the tent won't last all that many years but great price and is doing well for now
