A compact tipi tent that combines traditional style with modern technical design.
The Robens Fairbanks Tent is made using a single wall of HydroTex® Polycotton with protective eaves that create a large porch area, accessed by a single door with an arch-shaped two-way zip.
Supported by a single pole for quick and easy pitching, the Fairbanks tilts slightly to aid access to the spacious bedroom area that sleeps up to four people.
A cowl protects the apex mesh vent and the inner has a mesh door that keeps insects out.
- Strong, light and durable alloy poles
- Guyline retainers to avoid tangles when packing and unpacking
- Packsack (with handles) for easy packing and carrying

A fabulous little tent, 12 July 2016
By Paul (Rotherham)
I am delighted with this tent. It is very stylish and has excellent build quality. I have camped in Scotland and Norfolk over the last month and can state that it is extremely stable in winds and completely waterproof. The poly-cotton flysheet breathes very well and I had no condensation at all. The ventilation is from a small panel at the rear as well as at the apex and this can be supplemented by opening doors. The living area is protected by mesh netting and I had no problem with Scottish midges coming in.
This tent is ideal for a couple touring around with light-weight car camping. It is very quick to erect (under 15 mins) and even quicker to come down.
Four minor downsides :
1. I missed having any storage pockets( being used to larger Outwell family tents)
2. The aluminium pegs for pegging out the base area are very flimsy and bend easily. Although they are not under any stress, I used Rock pegs instead as I got tired on straightening them on returning.
The guy rope pegs are much stronger and are fine.
3. The black cowl over the apex is rather "Flappy".
It has four guys on the corners and can be tightened by crossing over the rear guys. This makes the top more aesthetically attractive (but reduces ventilation)
4. Robens (Oase) do not produce a footprint for this tent. I had to adapt my own.

As soon as we opened the box we were impressed with this tent. It comes in a nice roomy storage bag which includes the tent, peg bag and one pole. So easy to put - took us about 10-15minutes. Peg the tent down, the pole comes in three sections- they slot into one another. Once the pole is in, peg down the guide ropes and that's it. The tent is supposed to be for 4 people. We used it just for the two of us - it fits a double air bed in with room surrounding for your belongings. The bedroom compartment zips up. There is also a handy porch area ( can also be pegged back)
Easy to take down - unpeg the guide ropes, take out the pole, unpeg the tent, fold three times and roll up.
The only negative us that the tent is a light natural colour and the guide ropes are red. We put the tent away damp as it had been raining when we unpacked the tent a day later the tent had pink blotches on it.
Overall really pleased with our purchase. Good value for money.
Comfortable weekend tent for two people, 07 June 2016
By Philip (Stockton on tees)
The tent is very easy to put up - it's a good idea to have a go in the garden first though. Tent is very breathable. I slept in the tent when it was raining and stayed dry. Quality build.
I'm really pleased with it.
