How we test

Overall score is calculated from:

  • Usability (70%) – assessing the size and configuration of sleeping and living spaces, vestibules and storage, door configuration and access, windows and venting options.
  • Ease of assembly (30%) – assessing the time it takes to put the tent up and take it down again, the weight and ease of carrying the packed tent, pitching instructions, and quality of poles, pegs and guy points.
