Regatta Malawi 2 Man Pop-Up Tent from Outdoor Camping Direct
It’s getting very close to that time of the year when you dig out your old tent to either finding it has rotten over the course of the winter or the tent pegs and poles have somehow evaporated in to thin air whilst stored in your garden shed.
Mainly thanks to the festival season, where tents are often discarded and recycled, the cost of tents has come down quite considerably so it’s nearly just as cost effective to buy a new tent than get it repaired or replace lost parts, and none more so than at Outdoor Camping Direct who sent me this pretty amazing Malawi 2 Man Pop-Up tent.
Ideal for festivals and weekend camping this 2 man tent is incredibly easy to put up, taking just 2 seconds once you’ve got it out of its carry case and released the elastic strap. Tedi and I took it out to Castle Hill in Folkestone and found a great little camp spot about a mile or so away from our car. Due to the nature of this tent you can’t really carry it over long distances but the handle straps are quite comfortable and so make it fairly easy to transport between car and camp spot.
Once out of the bag you simply flip off the elastic strap and the tent pops open in a few seconds and is immediately ready to use. I popped some tent pegs in and secured the guy lines and was really surprised to see how roomy it was on the inside – a really generous 140cm wide and 230cm long – making it more than adequate for 2 sleeping bags and our gear.
I would recommend a good ground sheet and getting it back in its bag has a certain technique to it but once you’ve got the hang of it you can pack the Malawi away in about a minute or so.
