With tents, you get what you pay for.
I have owned a few tents. The first one (Dome style) was a cheapie from Macro for about ~R300 purchased in 1999. After about 3 months of daily use the tent pole (fiberglass) snapped. Even at the low price it did not leak. then 2 months later it got shredded by bears in Colorado. I went to the outdoor store in Steamboat Springs and got a lekker Sierra designs Meteor Light 3 man.
What a great tent, good materials and poles held up well, the one pole bent slightly but it is not too bad and tent is still in good use by my daughter. About 2 years ago the rain fly tore slightly, prob due to UV degradation, that was after 15 years use. So a good investment. The wife, she’s a bit of a sprawler without her cupboards, so we decided to buy a larger tent. Enter the Big Agnes Flying Diamond 4, this thing is luxury, a 4 man tent for 2 peeps, sets up pretty quick and came with a footprint. About 6 side pockets for books, torches, toothbrush etc. As well as side vents for when it’s hot and perforated at top so you can stargaze when fly is off. The vestibule is large enough for 2 rucksacks.
I recommended getting another larger ground sheet (the nylon one’s that let sand thru) Make sure it’s bigger than the tent and extends in front of the entrance, this way sand stays outside. Also the base of the tent will last longer.
I have never bought a tent that came with good pegs, they all bend (usually when I am lazy and using my foot and not the mallet), Agri sell some very good thick long ones.
Bear in mind that this is all for car camping.
Lastly, I bought a pop up tent recently, just quicker when you are overnighting for 1-2 days when on my own. If it rains I’m in trouble though.
Rigging time is the time spent placing the 4 pegs in the ground, 8 if it’s windy. In time, I’d upgrade to a 3 season version, as it is very convenient.
