A simple tent that is easy to pitch and won’t make a huge dent in your pocket. Ideal for couples, first time campers and festivals.
WHO’S IT FOR?
A small tent for couples, young families and first-time campers. A good option for festival-goers too.
WHAT’S IT LIKE?
It’s blue and it is far more spacious on the inside than you’d think from the outside. Sound familiar? No, it’s not the TARDIS, it’s the new Vester 3 tent from Regatta. With a small pack size and light weight, this is an easy tent to transport and pitch, especially with the colour-coded poles. The front porch area provides lots of enclosed living or storage space, with enough room for a table and a couple of small chairs. Daylight comes in through the corner PVC windows. The Vester also has front and side door access, while the front door can be converted into canopy using optional poles. The groundsheet clips to the fly and can be rolled away when not needed. In the spacious double bedroom at the rear, there are storage pockets and a useful lantern hanging hook. The multiple ventilation panels allow air flow throughout and an expandable storage bag allows easy packing and unpacking. The Vester 3 is currently available for half price or less which makes it excellent value.
Lots of ventilation, easy to pitch and small, light pack size. Like all Regatta tents has an expandable storage bag.
