Updated 2018 Model. Recently there has been a growing fashion towards Bell or Tipi tents. The Field Station is a Tipi style tent that will sleep up to 8 people. Six if you add the optional Inner tent.
The Advantages of a Tipi Style tent like the Field Station are the ease of pitching, with just one central pole and the strength of the design in bad weather. The strongest shape for a tent is a triangle, and the Green Cone is a Conical shape basicly a 360 degree triangle
A Tent that will ensure you enjoy your camping experience, will stand up to the worst and best of the British Weather. The Green Cone is an ideal tent for couples or young families requiring a bit of extra space especially if you use the optional inner tent, or can accommodate up to 8 people as a group tent..The only way to improve on this tent is to look at the Robens Outback range of Tipi/Bell tents like the Cherokee, Klondike, which have Polycotton Flysheets, giving the Cool Camping advantages of camping under Cotton.
