2019 Tent Owner Satisfaction Awards update
Our definition: Here, we’re looking at tents that were sold for anything between £300 and £1,000. That means a broad spectrum in the middle of the market. It’s also where larger, weekender and family-size tents are more to the fore.
Despite scoring well in all past surveys, this is the first time Outwell has topped the Best Mainstream Tents category, its 92% satisfaction rating a full 2% over nearest rival, Kampa.
Hi Gear ran a close third, with Quechua and Vango not that far behind.
All five brands mentioned here have consistently been among the top scorers among mainstream tent brands.
Please note: This is a price category that includes all types and sizes of tents that were purchased (regardless of manufacturers’ recommended prices) for between £300 and £1,000.
