Tentastic are possibly the worst company out there, their tents are not as described on their website, their customer service is quite bad.

I purchased a Rage Bodo 3 tent from them last year, I bought the tent to use at Leeds music festival 2008. However, I didn't end up using the tent because I slept in my friends tent instead. I kept the tent in my house under my bed (still unopened) and used it for the first time at the easter weekend for a mountain biking trip to wales.

Upon opening the tent, we soon realised that the tent was pretty much un-useable, we had been given the Rage Bodo 3 outer tent and the Rage Bodo 2 inner tent. The poles were also far too small for the outer tent so it was really baggy. The inner tent wouldn't fit at all because it was just way too small, so we ended up having to buy some string to make the internal loop holes longer (where the internal tent attaches to the external tent) to accomodate the smaller inner tent, this just about worked, but one night of heavy rain and the tent being baggy managed to collect a nice pool of water right above my head and in the morning I discovered that my sleeping bag and pillow was soaked along with a lot of my clothes.

So much for a decent cheap tent, was an absolute disgrace, ruined our camping trip, never ever ever buy a Rage tent, don't be foolish, spend about £20 extra and get yourself a quality tent made by a quality manufacturer.

Their customer service is awful, when I emailed them my response took about a week, their response was to ask me for a delivery address and they would send out the new tent. I did this and they confirmed they would send out the tent, but still no tent has arrived, I've come to the conclusion after reading other peoples reviews about the company that they are a total waste of time and they don't care and lie.

I have purchased a coleman coastline 3 tent for my next camping trip, I just wish I went for it in the first place!
