A huge tent for up to eight campers, quick and simple to pitch with adaptable internal space for total comfort.
The Zempire Aerodome III Pro is their largest air tent, with a very large internal sleeping area and an extended front awning area with multiple exits. The large rear master bedroom includes an individual entry / exit and the front Gullwing door creates an integrated awning extension with plentiful shelter for dining, sleeping, play and relaxation.
It's made using very strong and waterproof fabric (UN Spec 210D Ripstop with a 10,000mm rating), and the included awning poles let you pole out the side openings and door covers to create additional shade and covered, weatherproof entry. The inflatable beams (with external inflation points) make pitching quicker and easier, giving a sturdy and roomy structure under which to camp.
It has three fully removeable 'privacy pod' bedrooms that create private sleeping areas within the tent, which can be attached or detached to change the layout inside, converting sleeping areas into living/storage areas if required. The 'Blackout' fabric keeps them dark inside, so you get a better and more comfortable night's sleep. There's ample room for six campers to spread out with gear, but it will still comfortably fit up to eight people.
Awning Area (8.1m²) - a large living space that can be fully protected in poor weather or completely opened to allow maximum airflow and shade. Front tinted panorama windows offer privacy and weather protection without restricting the view, Gullwing door can be used as individual entrances on either side, rolled away, or poled out for extra shade. A single side entrance offers an extra entry / exit.
Living Area (8.1m²) - door with 360 zip, can be unzipped entirely and folded away neatly. Door features a full mesh panel with internal cover allowing control of ventilation and privacy. Fully sewn-in floor creates complete protection in all weather. Twin layer mesh doors with internal covers at front and rear allow airflow through the tent. Power cord access beside the front and rear doors. Hook-and-loop attachments allow cables to run to the the central storage hammock with lantern hook.
Sleeping Areas (13.4m²) - constructed from blackout fabric, with brightly coloured zips and lantern rings that are easy to find in the dark. The rear master bedroom is large enough for two twin stretchers, while the front rooms are smaller and ideal for kids or a couple. Front 360 doors keep things tidy and rear internally controlled windows allow complete control of both ventilation and privacy. A large storage cupboard on one side can be accessed from in the living area or within. Pockets on each side of the doors, and lower pockets beside the sleeping area.
Airflow - large mesh windows at the end of each bedroom allow ventilation, large anchor fins at the top of each bedroom allow windows to remain open during poor weather. Large doors with mesh covers at the front and rear of the living area allow airflow throughout the tent while keeping the internal space bug proof and comfortable. The High / Low ventilation system can be opened in all weather and provides essential air-circulation reducing condensation and creating a more comfortable environment inside the tent. Mesh windows on either side of the awning area block wind while still allowing airflow.

We brought our tent 2017 and are so glad we went with the Aerodome lll pro. Zempire have thought of everything with this tent, it is simple and quick to put up, ample room for the whole family and the built in wardrobes and wall pockets are excellent to keep the tent looking spacious and uncluttered. It handles a gale like its a sea breeze and is far more stable than a regular dome tent. There is so much room inside that everyone can have their own space and you are not stepping all over each others stuff. Would definitely recommend to anyone, I have not seen another tent that could come close to meeting the quality and design of the Aerodome series

Leaks like a sieve
Tent day trip ruined by leaks. Zempire market this as their most waterproof tent, I think not. Put tent up before we went away to get to grips with pitching etc. All looked good and had so much potential. During out ten day trip we had a couple of showers in the first few days which sufficiently weathered the tent. Followed by so lovely dry weather. On the next three spells of rain the tent leaked heavily from the seams around the skylight and into the living area. Returned the tent and repairs were attempted but failed by the store (not purchased from go outdoors). Turns out that the seams on the skylight had not been sealed when the tent was made. Apparently the store I purchased it from had several returned for the same reason. Won’t buy zempire again.

Don’t use this in any rainy weather and it will leak from the seams - we’ve tried two of these and both leaked. Nice design and size but not waterproof.

Oh dear, stuck with this tent camping 4 weeks in the Alps. Leaks along almost all of the seams, the waterproofing tape has parted in numerous places. Problem on second day of use. One week later Still leaking profusely despite having spent 45 euros on silicone sealant....Great to pitch and space but hopeless as a shelter. This one is going back. Previously had a Outwell Hartford XL and miss that tent and Outwell quality.....a massive disappointment at this price range and vacation wrecker.

If a certain Lager brewer made tents......
Having just spent our first week away with this beast I'm impressed, very impressed. Pitching is fast but you still have to peg all the guylines etc. There were 5 of us and we did it just over an hour, this was our first attempt, I'm sure it will get faster.
We pitched in a 25 knot wind and it went up no problems. When up it was interesting to see the other tents on the site really leaning with the wind but this was solid, yes it flexes slightly but is very stable. During a night of high winds and rain I fealt happier in this than any previous tent, no leaks and because of It's construction the poles aren't going to break, it just sits and soaked up the gusts.
The features in the tent are brilliant, we kept finding little bits that made us keep saying what a great idea, cable routing, storage, clips, vents, one way windows and the stow away doors are awesome, every detail has been thought through by someone who goes camping, even down to the zip covers, it is practical and the quality is the best I've ever seen in a tent and I've been camping for over 45 years and this is my 2nd inflatable tent.
Putting away is easy once the air is out of the tubes and again, even the design of the storage bag has been thought about. This isn't a badg that it comes in when new and never fits in again, this bag is designed to put it all away in easily, but be warned when packed up it is big and very heavy. (2 man lift heavy).
Is it worth the money? I can't answer that. For my family, yes. We got it on a Go Outdoors 20% off deal and will use it every other year for our summer holiday. We like the reduced pitching time and premium construction, not to mention the great features but I am aware that we could have got nearly as good for around a 3rd of the price, but if you want the nest quality, wìth great features I can't recommend this tent enough.
Just to add I don't work for Zempire or Go Outdoors, I'm an aircraft engineer!
