10/10 Quality & value

For the price, this tent is great! Materials feel durable and lightweight. I bought this tent as i couldn't find a similar product even close to the same price as this. took on a trial 3 day hike and i have no complaints. Would recommend!

Great little tent!

This tent is awesome. Perfect for a couple and spacious if you are by yourself. Seems very well made and thoughtful. Can set this up in less than 5 mins. Haven't used it in the rain yet but am confident that it will keep me dry based on the quality of design.

Very happy

I bought this tent for motorcycle camping and I am very happy with it. It is light, compact and very roomy for one but could take two people. It is super quick to put up or pack away and the quality is great. A great price and speedy delivery, thanks Snowys.

Happy camper

Gave this to my grandson for Christmas. He is just over 6ft tall and found it comfortable for his length. It withstood a couple of stormy nights wind and rain, good value for money too. Grandson very happy.

Great tent

This is a great tent that is easy to set up. Very stable in wind. Last use I had to set it up in the dark and finished in under 5 min. The height and length are great having used others that I have had to sleep curled up. Good pocket for glasses and torch. One dislike is the bag does not compress the tent. I have got additional straps to compress it to a smaller bundle to aid getting it out.

Really good tent. Light to carry and really easy to set up. Good wind protection in really windy conditions and kept us nice and dry in a bit of rain.

Would you recommend this tent over the back wolf 2 man hiking tent? 1 answer


- Coburg(7 months ago)

G'day Lauren,

I've just run a quick straw poll around our staff and it looks like most would go with the Black Wolf option, although you would be more than happy with either tent.

How many seasons is this tent? 1 answer


- Coburg(7 months ago)

G'day Lauren,

The Explore Planet Earth Spartan 2 Hiking Tent doesn't come with an official season rating but given the Waterhead rating and the fact that the poles are made of aluminium, I'd suggest that it sits around the 3 season mark.

Dual vestibule?1 answer

Is this tent dual vestibule?

- Killarney Heights(9 months ago)

G'day John,

I've just double checked this for you and can confirm that the EPE Spartan 2 Hiking Tent does have dual vestibules.

Will it be waterproof when it is showering?1 answer

Dont know what to say here :)

G'day Elaine, 

The Spartan tents are very new to us, but from looking at the specs it seems this tent has a 4000mm waterhead rating for the fly and 5000mm rated floor plus the seams are sealed - so unless it's extreme weather you should be nice and dry inside this tent.

Internal Mesh Section1 answer

Hi, does this tent have an internal no-see-um mesh that is stand alone without the fly? I would be using it in a hot environment mostly and want something that is pretty much pure mesh on the top with a reliable fly. Obviously without spending a heap of money too.

- Miami(1 year ago)

G'day Jenny,  

The Explore Planet Earth Spartan 2 Tent has a solid inner with mesh doors which attaches to the poles/frame so it will stand on its own – but it’s not made entirely of mesh. If you have a watch of this video at 00:25 you can see the Spartan without its fly which will give you an idea of the inner. 

There isn’t a 2 person hiking tent with an entirely mesh inner in that price range, but for a little bit extra you may want to consider the Zempire Atom Hiking tent. The Atom has a full mesh inner, and a quality fly with a water head rating of 5000mm, plus it is an extremely well-made tent so that's a model to keep in mind.
