A four person tent with a little extra, the Roman Adventure 4EX Dome Tent features an enclosed front vestibule with enough sleeping space for two extra people.
The breathable inner extends all the way through the extended vestibule and a silver coated flysheet protects the entire tent with a 2000mm water head rating. A divider between the main tent and vestibule creates two separate rooms while steel poles are included in the package to extend the front awning.
Superior ventilation through two windows and roof vents and versatile access via four doors, the Roman Adventure 4EX Dome Tent is a lightweight value for money option for small families.
We used it for the first time this Easter weekend. It took 30 min to set up the first time (on rocky ground) and under 20 min second time. Packing it down took us under 10 min and it comfortably fits in the bag (amazing).
It's nice and roomy - we were 2 people but you could fit in another 1 or 2 if you're happy to compromise on comfort. We loved the vestibule area - saved us from being attacked by flies and mozzies in the NT, while the doors/windows let in the breeze.
It's probably not the tent to use in all day heavy rain, but it withstood the few hours we got fairly well.
This isn't a premium tent but it's perfect for the budget camper that's outgrown their cramped old tent and is ready for something a bit nicer.
Delivery from Snowys was fast. The packing was very good.
Our Roman came prepacked with the orange guy ropes attached and some of the nylon cauterized ends had scratched little holes in the fly. Its a good idea to setup the Roman before you head out to practice setting up and check for any flaws. We patched the holes with silicone (perfectly waterproof).
While the saying goes "You get what you pay for", the Roman is a pleasant surprise. It was roomy enough for 3 people and stayed dry inside the night it rained while camping by the Murray River near the Junction of the Murrumbidgee. It may be a good idea to invest in a tarp & poles for use as an extended shelter over the Roman, as entry/exit during rainy days does let water in due to the sloped walls.
We unpacked our wet tent when we got home to find the orange guy ropes slightly stained the silver coating on the fly. We recommend you wash the guy ropes to leach out any excess dye before you go camping.
It took about 30 mins to pitch and 45 mins to pack (trying to remember how it was packed).
Overall a good 3 season tent for the price.
This tent is spacious, a great colour and perfect for staying a few nights or even solo camps with a lot of safe storage space! Loved this product ad would recommend for most people. Only problem I see is if you do not have much space to set up then this could be a hassle especially if its only for 1 person.
Great service and prices from Snowys, thank you. Delivery to TAS was quick, but, local courier was slow and held parcel in Launceston warehouse for 1 extra week.
Roman tent is of reasonable quality and features:-
- Good ventilation, the 2nd zip allows windows to be covered during rain but still permit ventilation - see Snowys 3rd photo.
- Good quality fly material.
- 30 min setup.
- Single stitched floor seams become porous if too much tension used to straighten floor.
- No electric cable entry point.
This is the second tent we have purchased from Snowys. We bought one for ourselves and this one for my daughters birthday.
Both arrived in Tas quickly and as ordered. Very good service
Friends have a very similar Roman tent to this and say I should be able to put it up by myself...
Setting up the Roman Adventure 4EX isn't overly difficult, as it's not much different to your average dome tent.
I've just asked on of my teammates who set this tent up for the photos on the site, and he says that there aren't any special tricks to it, so you won't have a problem setting it up on your own Marg.
I have the Coleman double high matteress which I bought over Easter but it was a very tight squeeze in my little tent. Looking to upgrade to this sort of size but want my mattress to comfortably fit in the tent without touching the sides or being able to touch the roof while just sitting on the Mattress.
I've had a look at the dimensions of the Coleman Double High Queen Quickbed and it's 198L x 152W cm x 46H, and the sleeping area of the Adventure 4EX is 220L x 235W cm. We don't have this tent up on display at the moment, but the walls of this tent don't look like they slope very much from the interior photos we took, so the airbed shouldn't touch the sides of this tent and should fit with no problem.
This tent is 180cm high at its peak, and the airbed is 46cm in height so you should be able to sit on the airbed without your head touching the roof - unless you're exceptionally tall of course.
Wondering if you can tell me, as I can't see from the pictures, if the inner has accessory pockets, power cord entry between the rooms, lantern hanging points. Thanks
From memory when we took the photos of the Roman Adventure 4EX Dome Tent, there was a basic plastic loop to hang a light, and 2-4 simple accessory pockets - but we're fairly certain that is doesn't have power cord entry between the rooms.
It is saying that the height at peak is 1.85/1.5m. I am assuming that these measurements are at the top of the tent. Do you have any idea what the internal measurements would be? Thanks
These measurements were taken internally Sarah, our website does not display this clearly but we'll have a solution for this soon. The main room is 1.85 and the vestibule 1.5 metres. I took all the measurements when we did the photo shoot so you can be confident in their accuracy. It's a really well spec'd tent for the price.
G’day Sarah, the front door of the Roman Adventure 4EX does have an awning that can be extended, which can be done using the two steel poles that are included with the tent. The Roman Adventure 4EX does have mesh and polyester inner, but it’s not clear if there is definitely both a solid and mesh door. We’ve been unable to get our hands on some quality images of this tent, so we’re going to take matters into our own hands (literally). If you hang tight until tomorrow – we’ll put the Adventure 4EX up in store, take some images, and hopefully get some solid answers for you Sarah.
Hi Sarah, we’ve had a little bit of a setback getting the Adventure 4EX set up in store – if you could just hang in there for one more day, we should have the pictures up by tomorrow
Hey Sarah, apologies for the delay in getting these images done, our graphic designer is uploading them as I write so you can expect a full set of product images by close of business today. I hope they help with your decision, it's a great value tent.
Is the 4th door at the back of the main sleeping area?
Hi Sue, there are four doors in total on the Roman Adventure 4EX. One at the front, one on each side, and one at the back of the tent which provides access to the sleeping area.
Hi, could you please confirm the total weight as on some other sites it is 13kg. Have you had a chance to get more images of this tent? How easy to find poles replacement? Thanks
Just wondering if you could tell me the dimensions of the main sleeping cabin?
Hi I'm interested in buying this tent, would you recommend putting a Tarp underneath and if so do you sell an appropriate product. Cheers
Hi, what do you mean by a breathable inner extends all the way through the tent. Does this mean it is mesh with a fly on it. Is the main body of the tent and vestibule solid material. This can make a difference when camping in cooler conditions. Regards
Hi do the side and front doors have a no see um mesh door or just the solid fly covering them
I'm a first timer, going on a scout trip for the first time with my son (but want to buy one big enough for the family in case they come too next time). How long approximately would you think it would take? Thanks!
Hi I am tossing up between this tent and the Huntsman HTPL-4215. What is the ground sheet in the front vestibule made from? Is it the same material as the main sleeping section of the tent? Do the side door have provisions for poles (like the front awning?) How much does the tent weigh without the poles? I am 6ft tall. Can I stand up inside the tent? Thanks for your help
Basically, I am looking for a tent suitable for festival camping. As such, I dont want it to be too large as I will have an alotted space. At the same time, I'd like a tent that will comfortably sleep 2 people in the main part with an added vestibule/front-room that 2-4 people can sit in and chat for up to half an hour. Which would you recommend? Or is there another?
I'd like to see a bit more detail about: Ventilation on the main dome Any doors out the back of the dome? Any more windows on the back or just the sides? Inner tent without the outer shell on. Any details about the setup? Thanks
