Fairly easy to put up, you can almost do it alone but it’s handy to have another pair of hands to hold up the structure when you put some initial pegs in. Roomy for 2 adults and great for standing up in (I’m 5”5), it survived the rain test overnight and overall I thought it was great value. It’s been used so far for a 3 night stay in the UK in low winds and with 1 night of rain. The bottom of the front door doesn’t zip up but the ground sheet gets suspended up at the front by about 6inches when you’re ready to call it a night and then the door flap comes down and overlaps with this so there’s no visible gap. If you were worried about animals entering you could probably stick some self adhesive Velcro on both parts to seal it.

Fair weather inexpensive summer tent you can stand up in
Good, value for money, basic tent that I can stand up in with plenty of room for 1 or 2 people and a dog, but a bit squashed to sleep 4. Only 2000 hydrostatic head but stood up to heavy rain. Plenty of living space with inbuilt groundsheet and by pegging this out first it is easy to erect the tent on your own.
The negatives are…..
1. Thin tent pegs which bend very easily - so bought some steel pegs to replace them.
2. Door doesn’t zip along the bottom to the groundsheet so insects/rain etc could get in and small dog can get out! Fixing this by sewing some Velcro along the bottom of the door.

significant design flaws with this tent
As previous reviews have mentioned, the zip on the doorway of the tent does not zip at the bottom, allowing insects and cold air to get in to the tent easily. the sleeping section of the tent has a net at the top, so again, heat can escape easily.
Also, ensure that you are camping in a wind blocked area, as no matter how tightly you fasten the guy ropes & spread the ground pegs, the tent rustles very prominently in windy environments.
In my opinion, it's a cheap and cheerful tent, that fails to provide significant design solutions that other cheap tents do.

Great in all ways until it rains
Tent flooded within a few hours of rain. Front door doesn't zip at bottom. Bit useless. I'll be complaining as in my view its not fit for purpose

Do not buy
Bought this tent to take my children camping only to find the the front at the bottom has no zip and dosnt close up which is rather silly.

The hydrostatic head of the flysheet is 2000. If you need more info search for Freedom Trail Sendero 6. This was the original name, it's been rebranded as Eurohike but is the same tent. Best tent I could find for the money, I haven't put it up yet, will amend when I have. Hope this helps.

Not really a review. Does anybody know the hydrostatic value of this tent.
