Pitching a tent the old-fashioned way is for the birds. We’d rather take Front Runner’s two-person Flip Pop tent out of its circular carry bag, stand back and watch it instantaneously unfold. Heck, before you’ve had a chance to say “time to open a frostie”, it’ll be time to push in the aluminium tent pegs.
The waterproof flysheet (1 500 mm water column) and durable floor (3 000 mm) ensure you remain dry, while the breathable inner tent provides plenty of ventilation, thanks to its large entrance, two windows and rear vent, with fine insect screens to keep out those pesky bugs. Other features: two mesh side pockets, two overhead loops (for hanging torches or light clothing) and reflective guy lines – all packed into a heavy duty canvas carry bag.
