Hello Crew,
Does anyone have experience with these tents? Good, bad, indifferent.
Ease of setup, value for money, waterproofing etc.

Geoff.

Geoff, We had 2 MI-4 Microfast tents, I found them to be hard work. you have to first peg out the tent and clip the fly on and peg out the ends. Someone else mentioned on this forum that they liked their Microfast but it did not breathe very well and they had to leave the doors open at night. I think they would be great on a hot summers night in the desert without the fly. We have touring tents now, much easier but bigger to transport and heavier. Michael

We have a Mi9 - have used it for about 4 years with no real probs at all. Have it set up in less than 10 mins. Very waterproof. Only downside is in very strong, front-on winds the front tends to collapse in a bit - pops out as gusts pass (I'm talking really strong gusts). I understand the newer ones have guy ropes on the front which should help.

Ollie!! I was going to mention, it may be ok in the big sizes where you only put up one tent, less fiddly. And yes they do collapse easily but may be a benefit in heavy winds, they just lay over and when the wind stops they just stand up again.. It beats holding the centre pole of a touring tentfor half the night like we did a few years ago!! Michael
