The Bell comes in two sizes, 4M and 5M. It is a premium quality, full cotton, canvas frame tent with an extra thick PVC zip in groundsheet which makes this a fantastic family friendly tent or perfect for a couple who want that bit more space. Sleeping anywhere from 1 – 4 adults in the 4m or 1 – 6 adults in the 5m, this simple steel framed tent can be put up by one person making this one of the easiest tents on the market to erect. The tried and tested design has been around since the 9th century so you can be confident that this tent will be ready for action whether in the summer or the heart of the winter. As the tent is made from 100% cotton canvas in the summer the tent will be breathable keeping it cooler compared to typical polyester and polycotton tents. Yet in the winter the insulation properties compared to a polyester will make this tent warm and cosy so you can camp all year round safe in the knowledge that you have made the right decision.
The heavy duty PVC groundsheet can be unzipped and rolled up to allow the breeze to come through on those hot days to truly make a unique feature no other tent has.
The steel frame construction is robust giving you peace of mind that this tent will be with you for years to come. Complete with everything you need to setup including heavy duty pegs, pre-attached guy lines & rain cowl for the “A frame”
Quest Tec FullC Fabric
This is a true premium quality fabric. Firstly it is a full 100% cotton canvas. This is no part cotton and part polyester fabric, it is a true 100% full cotton canvas. Cotton is more U.V. resistant than polyester and polycotton, it is naturally waterproof and the fabric is treated against mould, rot and U.V. degradation giving it extra durability, strength and protection against the elements. The premium treatment is impregnated into the cotton fibres themselves during the manufacturing process. This is far batter than any coating as it ensures that the canvas keeps its natural breathability, whilst treating each and every fibre in the cotton ensuring the very best treatment and protection possible. This is a full 100% cotton material, treated against the elements, waterproof and is still a breathable material giving you the very best of everything in one fabric. The fact that this is 100% cotton also means that it is stronger than its polyester and polycotton rivals and has no need for ripstop as the fabric is already extremely tear resistant. Even in the event of an issue cotton material is repairable, so you can repair it if required. The breathability of this fabric means that when the temperature rises the cotton expands, which allows more airflow and the tent breaths more, so the hotter it gets the more it breaths. This also helps keep condensation down to an absolute minimum, meaning you don’t need that second skin inside the tent, even when sleeping. The fabric is also better in the cold as when the temperature gets colder the material contracts helping the material to hold the heat in more giving it a better thermal rating.
Premium, minimal pitch frame
The frame on this bell tent is a solid, premium, galvanised frame. It features minimal poles ensuring the quickest pitch time possible and helping it to become a single person pitch tent. The minimal poles also means it is simpler than other frames and with less to put together, there is less to go wrong. The frame itself is an extremely strong steel frame with a premium finish ensuring it not only lasts for years and years, but looks good at the same time. The spring loaded design also helps ensure the frame is easy to put together by ensuring that each piece is kept together and ensures no mistakes can be made when putting it together.
Guy Ropes and Premium Sliders
Everything about this tent is high quality. There are no guy lines on this tent, it uses nothing but full strength guy rope. Far stronger and longer lasting than any guy line this helps elevate this tent from its rivals. It also uses the premium, smooth coated hand sliders which makes the tensioning of the guy ropes easier and less fiddle than standard guy lines and sliders. The smooth coating helps makes them more comfortable to use and the premium quality help them to last longer.
Single Person Pitch
This tent can be pitched by a single person. It is quicker to do it with two, but can be pitched by one. We test pitch every tent ourselves and only tents that we pitch with one person get this feature. If we only need a little help from a second person that it simply does not get the single person pitch feature.
Fully Zipped in Groundsheet (ZIG)
This tent features a fully zipped in groundsheet, which is a premium feature that allows you to unzip the groundsheet from the main tent. The ZIG gives you the ability to use the 360 Vista view without the need to unpeg anything. It also makes it easier to manage as whilst unzipped the groundsheet can be taken away and cleaned separately from the main tent. The groundsheet itself is a heavy duty, premium 540gsm full PVC material. This material is extremely hard wearing, durable and easy to clean. The groundsheet also gives you extra protection from the ground as it adds that extra layer between you and the earth. The fact that it is a zipped in groundsheet also means that it adds strength and stability to the tent as the groundsheet becomes an integral part of the unit.
Double layered doors
This bell tent has fully zipped, double layered doors giving you extra options and features. First you have the full 100% premium cotton fabric door on the outside giving you all the protection from the elements you need, the fact that they are fully zipped (along the bottom and together) gives you the very best protection possible by ensuring the tightest, strongest closure possible. They help keep the heat in when cold, give you complete privacy when required and are easily tied back when not needed. Next you also have fully zipped No-chill mesh panels. These are brilliant at allowing air flow though, but keeping the bugs and wind out. This allows you to tie the main doors back, but still keep it free, insect free and airy inside.
360 Vista View
The Vista view feature is a great addition to your tent. This allows you to roll up the entire side wall of the tent up and toggle in place. This leaves you with a stunning 360 degree view all around and a magical floating roof. On those really hot days this can be a great benefit, a really different way to appreciate, use and have fun with your tent. All this is done without the need to pitch or rep itch your tent, you simply unzip the sidewall from the groundsheet, then roll it up and secure in place with the in-built toggles. You can even do the vista view on part of the tent and leave the rest in standard mode the versatility is built in.
No-Chill premium mesh
This tent has built in ventilation using the Quest premium no-chill mesh. This mesh is extremely strong, durable and hard wearing. It is pull and damage resistant and looks great. The structure and build quality of the mesh allows the air in, but keeps the wind chill out. When wind blows against this mesh the air is allowed though, which allows for perfect air circulation, but it stops the wind so you don’t feel the wind chill. Our mesh panels all have premium zipped internal blinds which allows you to fully close the vents when you want to.
Inner Tent Ready
This tent is inner tent ready ready, which means it can gave at least one inner tent fitted inside the tent to give you that sleeping pod / sleeping area. The inner tent is simplicity itself, to fit it all you do is clip the inner tent in place using the toggles on the inner tent and the sewn in toggles points in the tent. If you don’t want to use the inner tent during the day, you can simply remove it or even just drop it to the floor.
