WHAT’S IT LIKE?
Wild Country might be a newcomer to the family market but with more than 35 years of expertise in designing technical tents, it’s no surprise that the Derbyshire brand – also responsible for the award-winning Terra-Nova adventure brand –  has hit the ground running.

The Zonda 6 EP is part of a small but perfectly formed new collection of inflatable tents and awnings. Wild Country has used its knowledge to create the perfect combination of useful features, reliability and ease of use. And you know you have the back-up of an experienced customer service team if there are any issues.

Based on what we’ve seen, there shouldn’t be – the Zonda is a quality tent. The 12cm, large diameter Air Flex poles come with a 10 year guarantee and combined with a rectangular floor plan make pitching swift and simple. Its extended front porch has a detachable bathtub style groundsheet providing maximum versatility no matter the weather.

The main groundsheet is fully sewn-in and adjustable air vents with insect proof mesh panels are provided for comfort in warmer weather. Adjustable privacy curtains are provided for the large tinted windows and the darkened bedroom is divided into three compartments. Small details matter, too.

The innovative oversize tarp-style tent bag makes packing away a breeze – an important aspect that tent manufacturers often forget about. Twin electrical hook up access points on either side of the tent mean you don’t need to worry about where you pitch. And a comprehensive repair kit and inflation valve tool is included.

WHAT’S GOOD?
Plenty of living and sleeping space; quality materials and workmanship; oversized carry bag; double electric hook-up ports; wide-diameter air poles for stability
