Tent Type: Mountaineering
Make and Model: Karrimor Protech TQ
Sleeping Capacity: 2 person
Review: I purchased this fine tent from Ellis-Brigham in the UK for a reasonable $329.18 US Dollars. This tent is a copy of the more expensive Terra-Nova Quasar I might add.

It features four shok-corded aluminum poles that slide through continuous mesh pole sleeves. Setup is really quick and simple. Instead of grommets the ends of the poles attach to rings and pins.

I personally like the color of this tent-no "loud" yellows or blues. The ripstop nylon rainfly is forest green and the tent body is a yellowish orange. There are two doors at each end of the tent and two vestibules. This tent lacks the trendy clear plastic windows found on many of todays BIG name brand tents, which is fine with me.

This tent has numerous guy points and is well made. I performs well in the cold though I suggest one use stronger stakes for winter camping. The stock ones "pretzel" pounding them in the hard ground.
