A ruby red gem!
I was looking for a tent I could use for wild camping, but I didn’t want anything too small. So, after looking at a number of tents and doing my research, I decided on the Berghaus Cairngorm. Why? because I liked the roomy vestibule with the entrance either side and also the low geodesic profile of the tent.
Well, I’m just back from a couple of days putting the Cairngorm through its paces and I’m delighted with it. In strong wilds and pelting rain, it hardly moved, unlike a lot of the other tents I saw flapping around in the breeze. The sleeping section is black in colour, which is relaxing on the eyes. It’s also very roomy, sleeping two rather portly middle-aged adults and a Labrador!
Putting up and packing away the Cairngorm takes about ten minutes and the Cairngorm can actually be folded a lot smaller than the bag in comes in, smaller still if you remove the poles and store them separately in your backpack.
So far, I can’t find anything I don’t like about the tent, other than I wish I had the option to buy it in a natural green colour. However, with it being red, I won’t lose it on the hillside in a hurry and it will be easier for mountain rescue to find!
