Gelert Vertigo DS 2 Tent

A new compact, lightweight and innovatively designed tent for 2011 that is sure to cause a stir. The Vertigo is double-skin tent but it is pitched 'as-one'. There are two telescopic aluminium poles pre-connected to each of the two 'A' points of the flysheet. Simply snap the poles into position, peg out the tent and you are ready to go. When taking the tent down simply compact the poles, fold the flysheet in half and roll the whole package up and you are ready to move. The Vertigo DS2 sleeps two people and because of its light weight (2.6kgs), ease of putting up, and compact pack size (54x14cm) this tent will be ideal for backpackers, festival goers, campers, trail walkers, motorcyclists, scout (Stan's got a woggle) and guide groups. The features of the Vertigo DS2 include, twin entrance doors, pre-hung breathable polyester inner tent with polyethylene groundsheet, 190T PU coated polyester flysheet with 2000mm hydrostatic head protection and taped seams, 2 x 22/19/16mm telescopic aluminium poles, pre-attached guylines.

  • Spacious, easy to erect and dry 13th July 2012 45 Following on from my previous review, where I had only erected the tent in my garden and posted my initial impressions, I have now used this tent a couple of times. The first time was in North Wales for a weekend in May. There were two of us staying in the tent and it was more spacious than I had expected. I am 6"6' and there was space for me to put my bag by my feet, which I have never been able to do before. The nights were cold and I expected the mesh down the side of the inner tent to make the tent cold as well, but this didn't happen as the tent stayed warm. The second time was in the French Alps for a week in June. We had a real mix of weather and this tent took it all without leaking. There was condensation on the inside of the fly sheet on a couple of mornings, but this did not drip onto me and quickly dried off in the morning sun. Have a pole right in the middle of the door was a bit tedious at first (would be great if they could design this tent with two poles in a triangular formation at each end to avoid this) but I got used to it by the end of the week. The porches proved themselves to be very useful, with plenty of storage space. I only used the door at one end and then had the other porch purely for storage. I would have preferred to have flysheet doors as well as the material door to give the option of only using the fly-door at night. This is only a minor gripe to what is a great tent.

  • Bigger than it looks 22nd March 2012 45 So far I have only put it up in my garden to get a first look. As such I am not able to report on its waterproof-ness, durability etc. It looks and feels solid and sturdy once put up. Once you have worked out what you are doing, it does only take a minute or so to erect, but then it takes a few more minutes to fully peg it out (18 pegs in total!) It is bigger than I expected - I am 6'6" and was looking for a 1/2 person tent long enough for me to comfortably lie down in. This tent is plenty long enough and I would say is wide enough for two adults to sleep comfortably. Using it on my own there would be plenty of space to fit my thermarest with plenty of space to store kit. The inner door does not have a fly net, but there is netting in the main part of the bedroom which looks like it should provide plenty of ventilation. However, as it is not possible to close off this netting it could make it harder to warm up the tent in colder times. The inner tent is not removable from the flysheet but does appear to be well attached. The poles are three section telescopic with each section held in place using two sprung metal buttons. The two ends offer plenty of space for storing bags etc. They do not have a triangular footprint - they are in fact that of an isosceles trapezium, meaning that they will provide plenty of cover for cooking under in inclement weather. I am looking forward to testing this tent properly and will provide an update review afterwards.
