    coleman event shelter

    Has anyone else seen this lightweight massive marvel. It is 4.5m square and must be over 2m high. Great as dining shelter etc. costs around £120 for the basic roof then £16 each for one in-fill panels.

    Here is a bad picture of that that does not do it justice:

    Rule 1 - I'm the Boss and
    Rule 2 - if in doubt refer to Rule #1

    Hmmm! Looks a little flimsy to me.

    Remember; Some people are like "Slinky's". Worthless, but they bring a smile to your face when pushed down the stairs.

    Extremely good. Our District has one for all it's roadshows and we have just brought one after seeing it at Cardington in May. Really easy to put up.

    Wasn't that what was used on Chillax, Kezzy?

    We bought one for our Group, excellent piece of kit. The additional sides are really useful and they now make a door too about £20.00. The great thing is that is can easily be put up by two people, the bag is not too big and it is not too heavy.

    We wanted something that all our Leaders could use and put up not just the really tall Scout Leaders. Great value and ease of use.

    I brought one last year for my back garden - 2 months later the centre hub snapped in 2, got a replacement - put it up this year and the centre hub has snapped again.

    Mind you the customer support at World of tents were brilliant, first time around - have not contacted them yet for this one

    Saw a couple of these at G24, and made a note to do some research.

    18kg for the basic thing though - before any walls - probably due to the steel poles. How does that compare to a traditional dining shelter?
