About this deal
It comes with its downsides though. It’s massive. You aren’t lugging this thing far from your car. It’s also not very waterproof at all. A recent adventure confirmed this when I awoke with the entire bottom half of my doss bag in a puddle. This feels like a quality piece of kit and I’m still not entirely sure how they can make money selling it for just 89 quid (minus 10% forces discount). That got us thinking though, that we’re looking at every possible item from OEX so it would be good to narrow our search down even further and only look at OEX branded products within the Weekend Tents category. The cost of OEX Weekend Tents Very minor downside, can be a little tough getting the poles in there straps as they have limited tensioning allowance and the eyebrow canopy is quite tight too. The material the product is made from is often a sign of the quality for Weekend Tents. Take a look at the product details over at Go Outdoors to get a feel for this.
The downside to buying online is that you can’t actually get hold of the product to try it out first. During Covid I’ve been trying to get the kids out the house as much as possible. Bike rides, walks, den building in the woods, wild swimming, we’ve done it all. Klarna's Pay in 3 / Pay in 30 days are unregulated credit agreements.

The hydrostatic head of 5000mm exceeds most other tents and puts it firmly in the same league as serious mountain tents.
The fabric: The tent is a true double-layer type so you have a polyester shell with the vestibule and its waterproof rating is impressive 5000 mm. As mentioned, the inner door is double-layer and it is fully protected, so you can keep it with the mesh only all the time unless you feel cold of course. There is a mesh section on the inner tent and it matches the rear vent, see the picture. So there is not much to object here. The inner door with mesh, and the rear vent.

There is a spacious porch for cooking and admin and it has a built in groundsheet which is attached to the inner. You can roll this away if you want, but I found it really useful to have a nice dry spot for storing boots and our bag. Its simple tunnel design, robust flysheet and groundsheet and aluminium poles make it tough enough to protect you from stormy weather. The groundsheet is pre-attached, making pitching easy and keeping insects out. The compact front porch gives you room to store your wet kit and boots. OEX tents have been built to withstand the trials of outdoor adventures and expeditions. They use 7075 lightweight aluminium poles, with durable poly flysheets that won't falter in arduous conditions, and will give you years of service. Good space internally, easily fitting two. The porch area is a good size too allowing kit storage and even careful cooking/brewing if the weather is a little inclement. All in all, very happy with this. Serious bargain. I think you’d struggle to find a better 3 man tent for even double what I paid for this.
